Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bag for males, as well. I love this bag!! It is great for holding my wallet, smart phone, keys, iPad, chargers and miscellaneous other items. I use it as both a shoulder bag and cross body bag. Today I received a compliment from a lady at Starbucks on how much she loved my bag. Guys need to give serious consideration to the Fossil Explorer Crossbody Handbag!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! It was perfect for my business trip when I'm traveling airport to airport to hotels, etc. Unfortunately the cloth loop stitching that attached the leather strap came undone. So sad!! Fossil was willing to let me exchange the bag for a new one since I just got it a few months ago but they didn't have the color I wanted. So I'm on the hunt for a tailor who can help me out. But I did appreciate the gesture! Hopefully I can get it fixed!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good. I bought this bag last week at an outlet mall in San Jose and got it in the orchid. I was on vacation in the area. I had been carrying a large Coach tote for a couple of years and loved it, but I've been suffering from severe back problems and find that a crossbody bag works better for me. I got out an old Fossil back that I had and started carrying it on vacation and thought it would be nice to find a new leather one since the old one was a canvas bag. This bag seemed to fit my needs. The strap is very comfortable. I haven't noticed the squeaking that others have mentioned. It worked out great for the remainder of my vacation and so far so good for everyday at home. Pockets are big and roomy. Only two minor complaints: it would be nice if there were some horizontal credit card slots in one of the front pockets. I may need to buy a small coin purse or a wallet. Part of the purpose for me getting a smaller crossbody bag was to eliminate the need for a wallet. Other minor complain is that there are already a couple of small blemishes on the front. I don't recall if they were there when I purchased the bag or not. It's a lovely orchid color and I got lucky and got it on sale for 60% off.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poorly made, fell apart in a week! My daughter bought this bag because it seemed perfect for travel with the numerous zip pockets and cross body design. I have bought a lot of fossil bags over the years and have always been satisfied with the workmanship. However this one is a dud. After just one week of use the stitching holding the shoulder strap on came Undone! One week ! Given the price of the bag there is absolutely no excuse for the poor workmanship.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! Easy to carry! My husband purchased this for me about four-five months ago. I absolutely love it. I have neck and back problems, and typically a cross body bag works better than a traditional shoulder bag for me. I didn't personally feel the bag was too heavy or too bulky. (I am 5'4, 115 lbs for reference). I recently was caught in a rainstorm and the bag dried perfectly without any discoloration. There are several interior and exterior compartments to keep everything neat (great for my slight OCD for organization). I think this is a great purchase and would not hesitate to purchase another!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Details count It's a pity this bag is not pure leather: the brown straps are squeaky synthetic otherwise would ok. And yes, the bag is rather heavy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bag, but heavy. I bought this bag approximately 2 years ago and have used it almost daily since then, under snow, rain or sunshine. This is the first real leather bag I've ever owned, so I wasn't really sure how it would hold up to the weather here (Eastern Canada) or how I was supposed to treat it. I ended up never using any protectant sprays/lotions, but I have carried it under heavy rain a few times and it's always dried perfectly, without leaving any spots. The leather is buttery soft. There are 2 large front pockets, 1 zippered compartment inside, a few card slots and 2 slots for phone and/or various cards (as you can partly see from the pictures on Fossil's website). My only complaint with this bag is that its hardware is heavy. It's not as comfortable as I'd like to carry all day long and you can't just throw this bag on any surface because it's going to be super noisy and possibly damaging (not that it ever happened to me, but I can imagine it being an issue in some rare cases). That being said, I'd still recommend it strongly, unless you want a feather-lite bag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Returniing for Warrenty I am mailing this back due to the stitching unraveling around the zipper. Its not as bad as the other reviewer who posted pictures. This is my third Fossil back and I used the first two until I actually wore them out. I will follwup with the companies resolution to the issue. Hoping for the best.
