This makes for a great purse.
First, it is an excellent size for a day purse- the perfect size for holding your wallet, keys, sunglasses, and cell phone. There are two compartments- a main one for storing those things, and a smaller one for storing folded paperwork (e.g., from the doctors office) or receipts. It is larger than needed just for that list of items, which makes it easy to find them, so you can fit other things in it as well, but not too big. A nice feature is that the backing for the velcro closure is long, so, if you want to store a larger item that is taller than the bag, you can just fold the front flap up higher. Another nice feature is that you can fold the front flap backwards if you want to keep the purse open for easy access- such as when grocery shopping- you couldn't do this as easily with a purse that has a zipper closure. The only negative for some might be the lack of a zippered pocket- not available as an option for the mini zero, although they do have compartments you can order for all the other sizes of bag
I also like the strap length (perfect for access at my hip level, although it could be a tad short for people with very long torsos) and adjustable strap. The purse also lies flat against your back should you lean over to pick something up. I think you could probably bike with it, although I haven't tried it myself.
The bag was made with excellent craftsmanship and is quite attractive.
It also has a coolness factor, since it is locally made in an environmentally-friendly manner.
I actually ran into someone the other day who had bought their bag with a groupon- and we exchanged words about how happy we both were with our bags (mine was a mini zero, hers was a medium sized bag).

Wow, I am blown away by the quality and the customer service. I asked for a bag with no labels and find myself telling everyone where I got it instead. This really made me so happy to get a custom bag from a local company and to my strange specifications. I shall gladly order more.

Despite the fact that I picked out the colors, the bag managed to look great. The deep pockets holds my stuff with no fear of it falling out. It fits comfortably when I bike or walk. I would love an option (even for more money) of pockets and zippered sections because it's fun to organize! LOVE THE BAG!

This is a great little bag which fits all my essentials except my iPad. (I purchased it before Rickshaw came out with the iPad specific bag.) It would be nice if it had an inside pocket and the weatherproof fabric lacks some tactile appeal, but its still a great little bag. I plan on ordering on of the iPad bags next in the regular Cordova fabric.
