Best bag ever. Seriously.
I'd been thinking that I needed to trade my laptop backpack for a small bag to carry my three phones and essentials while working a week-long conference. Was in a store buying clothing and saw they had the earl grey color in this bag. Took a look, debated, and walked out without it. Continued to think about it, and walked back in to buy it 10 minutes later. This is the absolute BEST $68 I've ever spent on anything from lulu. The bag is completely functional - I put my phones (two iPhones and one push-to-talk) in pocket under the flap, where they were secure, but still easy to pull out at a moment's notice. My wallet went into the zippered pocket. The smaller zipper pocket held essentials - room key, lip gloss and mints. Everything was so easy to access! I wore it cross body, primarily on my back and completely forgot it was there (unless I needed something). The earl grey color was a nice neutral as well. Absolutely love this bag and will be buying more. The only con is that the zipper pulls touch, which creates a noise, so I tuck one inside the zipper.

So In Love
I never thought I would forgo my beloved Coach purses but I am so pleased I gave this a try!! Bought it in the purple spray color and my ONLY complaint is that I bought it at full price instead of on MD. Bought about a month ago and have used it as my regular purse since then. Worked amazing as I traveled and hit the Mall of America! Zero complaints what so ever! Now hoping the dune or black one make it to MD so I can own another one!

I was excited to get this bag in the beige color with the bright strap, perfect for summer. Lighter than most of my other bags, and crossbody is perfect! However, I just noticed that with gentle use and NEVER sitting it down when on the go. The backside of the bag looks dingy from simply rubbing on my clothing. Very bummed about the look of this bag after just a month or so.

Great for travel
I bought this bag specifically for traveling in Costa Rica. I was hesitant at first because of the price, but I'm so glad I bought it instead of having to use one of those cinch backpacks. I took it horseback riding, hiking, ziplining, ATVing, and it was stashed just about everywhere. Since it's waterproof, everything inside stayed safe. It holds a lot more than I expected. The wide strap is also very comfortable even when the bag gets heavy. I was never worried about pick pockets because you'd really have to work some magic to unfold the flap, unzip the flap, then reach all the way down into the bag since it's so deep. The fabric is still in tact and just has some scuff marks, but hey that's what I bought it for. Now I use it at the dog park and will probably tailgate with it this fall. I have the cream bag with hot pink strap, and it's super cute!

Pleasantly. Surprised, but...zipper glitch
I was a bit skeptical of this bag when it arrived...I'm now on vacation with my busy boys and love the ease of it. it can easily hold two bottles of sunscreen, iPhone, money, mini water bottle and lip gloss. The compartments are great, I love the outside pocket for my phone. The front zipper pocket has been so handy for holding the hotel key, lip balm and money. I do agree with another reviewer, the zipper sticks.

After waiting a year for this bag to be re-introduced I finally was able to own one of my own. I love the many compartments, fabric and basic black color option. However, and this is a big HOWEVER, the zipper (metal) for the main compartment (the one that gets used the most) is of far inferior quality to the zipper (plastic) used for the smaller front compartment. Why, oh why, would lululemon design and approve of this? The zipper is not at all smooth when opening or closing the bag. It feels and sounds as if the zipper is going to break each time I use it. Really bummed about this and not sure what can be done. Lulu, any suggestions?

Love this bag wish the strap was longer
So I've been eyeing this purse for awhile now, I've been wanting a smaller purse so I don't always have to lug around my big leather coach purse. I love all the little compartments to keep things organized the material is really nice waterproof. I ordered in the spray dye cool breeze colour and I love it its different.
The only thing is the strap is a little on the shorter side so the purse sits a little high when using as a crossbody purse. I usually like my purses to sit closer to my hips not at my waist.
Other than that I've only used a couple of times so we will have to see how the quality holds up after using for awhile.

Looked better online
I was so excited to get this bag and it is really cute but color looked much nicer online than in reality. I thought the spray dye was much more gray-blue online but it is very purplish, and the canvas piece on front bright purple. Not for me unfortunately.
I am 5'7" and was worried where the bag would hit me cross body from other reviews but that was not a problem-seemed to land just fine at hip comfortably.

LOVE the design of this bag. So functional and everything was great, except after only the 2nd day using the bag, one of the zippers fell off (the zipper tab that you pull). So now instead of having 2 working zippers to access the the interior there is only one. So sad, because other than that this bag is terrifically designed.

Loved this bag online but sadly disappointed
I bought this bag about two weeks ago and LOVE IT. Its practical, stylish and fits everything. The design allows for it to be used many different ways.
However, after normal daily use there is already a small snag in the fabric. I'm pretty upset that after $70+ purchase its starting to show wear and tear... after just two weeks (less than 5 uses). Very sad, really wanted to love it. My 5 year old lulu duffle is holding up better! :(
