I am looking for an across body bag to use as my every day handbag.

I like this sort of thing but am not keen on black and don't like the seatbelt style strap:

Matt bag

Thanks. original.gif

How's this one?  Not sure if you'll like the strap.

I do like that one, thanks. Don't like purple though, will check out other colours. original.gif

I know you said you didn't like the black but I have three Matt bags and they are fantastic. The guy that makes them is so nice and even suggested swapping the direction the zip undid for me because he noticed  I wear it over my left shoulder as opposed to the right. He also changed around the inside pockets so it was more user friendly - all at no extra cost.
The bags also wear extremely well. I use one daily that I bought early 2010 and it looks as good as new ! The customer service is exceptional as well.

I have no affiliation with him but I just wanted to tell you how fantastic they are !  biggrin.gif

( I have one in that fabric design in your link)

Thanks Louise! They do seem well made and durable which is a big plus....just not quite the look I am after. Hmmm....
