Had this Piel Leather Apple Green Satchel on my Amazon Wishlist for a few years but realized it was never coming back. Wanted a long, wide crossbody tote with a wide opening. Saw this one years ago and immediately put it on my wishlist for Piel Leather. I contacted Piel Leather and they built the bag from scratch and only charged what Amazon’s lowest price was! Talk about customer service!
The leather is a bright Apple Green, half way between a stiff leather and ultra-soft. The bag holds it’s shape pretty well. The satchel measures 17x11x8 inches across the bottom and 24x11x1 at the top, a reverse pyramid. The opening is wide, giving you access to everything. There are two shoulder straps and a long crossbody strap for easy conveyance.
The Satchel is 17x11x8 inches and can hold quite a bit. You can use it to carry your computer, files, paperwork, lunch, gym shorts/shirt/small dopp kit or your day bag/medication-medical bags/water-coffee-tea travel mug, ereader/tablet/computer. The crossbody strap will give the bag balance to carry easily. There are feet on the bottom as well to protect the leather.
There is one outside pocket that will hold an Amazon Kindle 8.0 and one inside zip pocket. The brilliant Apple Green can be carried year-round as more and more bright colors are now all-season colors. This satchel can be formal for the office or casual for a day out running errands.
I love this tote and look forward to using in the years ahead.
