I was looking for a convertible crossbody bag that could also go around my waist to keep my arms and hands free. This is it. I have used it every single day since it arrived and if I need to take more I literally put my circle bag (less any straps) into my larger one and use it like an organizer pouch. It only weighs what you put into it and since it's so well made, even if you over stuff it the materials never feel like it will give way or fray. Super excellent purchase and I will most likely be getting another one in a different color. Well done Caraa!
