      Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS North End Shoulder Bag:

      I love purses and have spent a lifetime searching for the perfect one. I hope I never find it, (I love the search too much) BUT this purse always rises to the top of the list. It's exactly the right size for a grab and go lifestyle. It holds a makeup pouch, a slim line wallet, my i-phone, and a few extras: tissues, hand sanitizer, sunglasses, keys. It would hold more but I don't want it to! I love that it doesnt get too heavy and I love that I can throw it across my shoulder and go hands-free. I love that the liner is light-colored and slick-ish so I can find and replace stuff easily (why do purse makers think a black liner is okay- it turns a purse into a black abyss). I love that it has a designated area for my debit card and my phone and a key clip for those pesky reward cards. It has a place for everything and I have yet to find a purse better organized that doesn't cost three or four times as much. This would be okay for travelling or day trips if you are a minimalist, but that's when I prefer to carry a water bottle and room for an extra layer so that's I grab my EMS Brighton handbag which is just as awesome (I have it in two colors) and has room for the extra stuff but is just as organized and nice-looking. I do switch purses a lot but I always seem to come back to my EMS beauties. You can't go wrong with this great purse.

      This is a great little bag. The only thing I would change would be to add a zipper to the top for added security!

      Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS North End Shoulder Bag:

      This is an attractive bag for when you're going light. My pros: light-weight, water resistant, plenty of pockets, and can be used cross-body. The magnetic snap on mine has been staying closed, even when dropped on the floor. However, loose coins fall out of the main compartment. A zipper on top would make the main compartment more secure. Also, when dropped on the floor, my phone fell out of the pocket under the flap(even with the snap closed). However, there are three zippered pockets that are big enough to hold a phone and other small items(like coins!). I do like this bag enough to order another color.

      I got the Olive color and it is very versatile, and perfect for fall and winter. For summer, I would like to see this in lighter colors with light-colored straps. In summer, I don't want a black strap and I don't want white(shows dirt too easily). A khaki strap would be perfect. Good price!

          Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS North End Shoulder Bag:

          I was thrilled when I saw this item and excitedly ordered one. While I stand by the "pros" I checked off, I stopped using this bag shortly after its arrival. The magnetic closure is a major flaw. The magnet on the bag is so weak that it doesn't attract its mate when you drop the flap to close the bag; you need to align them. Worse, in my opinion, is that the weak attraction causes the magnets to constantly detach leaving the bag unsecured - a real bummer if the bag is dropped because everything then spills out of it. I bought some very strong little magnets to attach to the bag to correct this, however even super glue ended up losing its stick and the magnets fell off. If the company changed this bag's design to use a STRONG BAR MAGNET(at least 3" long) then I'd rate this bag with 10 (!) stars.

            Have not used this handbag yet, but will in the spring. Bought it because of the organizational features, and the size is very conducive to keeping it light( not overfilled) .

            I bought this bag in green for a weekend away and have kept using it ever since. It is a great size, deep enough to hold my mini ipad, and lots of organized storage to neatly hold wallet, keys, passport, phone, glasses and more with NO BULK. It is lightweight and very comfortable.
