Lets look at the particulars of this satchel. Straight from the sight "
I prefer a leather purse and I don't have a need for exterior pockets. If there is too many places to put "things" I can not find the "things". The magnetic snap closure did not hold for more than a month. This is not the handbag for me, but it may be great for you. I did like that the crossbody strap is removable.
