Q: What size water bottles fit in the outside side pockets? I have a 32 oz Contigo and am curious if the diameter is too large or not to fit.

submitted by Lisa T - 1 year ago
  • A: Hello Lisa T - Thank you for your patience while we researched your question as to which size water bottle will fit in the outside side pockets. The response we received is that the side pockets have a length of about 11 inches tall, so a 32oz water bottle should be able to fit. However, we are unable to provide a diameter measurement for the side pockets as it would not be accurate because the side pockets do not form a circle. - Melodee

  • A: Standard 32oz Nalgene or the "fat" Hydroflasks fit great. I didn't have a laptop in the bag, though. The bottles do use interior space. I put a "reMarkable" tablet in with both water bottles easily.

Q: Why does the description say 14.5 Inches (H) x 11 Inches (W) x 6 Inches (D), but when someone asks for dimensions Target Staff answers with much larger numbers that make no sense (2.5 D). ????

Q: Please suggest a way to clean the corduroy with pleather bag...We've got it smelling like a rotten Starbucks! Handwash? Spot Wash? or Washer submerge? thank you!

submitted by Natalie - 1 year ago
  • A: Information found online web page Pleather Bag - Google Search: To clean the leather, mix a solution of warm water and dish soap. Dip a soft cloth into the solution, wring it out and wipe the exterior surfaces of the purse. Use a second clean, damp cloth to wipe off the soap. Dry with a towel. Good Luck

I loved this bag, but it didn't last. Within the first 9 months the top zipper stopped working. Doesn't matter if you started off strong; if it isn't laying perfectly when you go to zip, it pops open. The zipper is already a little rougher (Doesn't easily glide), but this takes the cake. For the price and quality of the fabric, I expected more.

DL - 1 month ago, Verified purchaser
I love this backpack and it’s perfect for what I need it for. However, I’ve only had it a week and the zipper broke. I don’t have the receipt anymore so it’s really frustrating. Probably wouldn’t recommend it if I knew the zipper would break off so easily. I see another review about the zipper breaking twice as well

This is the bag I needed all along! I looked for weeks for the perfect bag for work. I needed it to carry a laptop, some folders, a water bottle and sometimes my lunchbox. I looked at this backpack initially and wanted a more athletic look (I’m a personal trainer), found a backpack and used it for 5 months before deciding it wasn’t the one. I grabbed this bag on a whim and I wish I would have gotten it originally. I can carry everything I need and still have some room. The biggest plus for me, besides the laptop sleeve, is the front pocket that is large enough to hold my charging cable and mouse without taking away space inside the bag. I highly recommend this multi-use bag for the busy working woman.

Sunshine_Music - 2 months ago, Verified purchaser
Love this bag! Perfect to use for work. Can fit my laptop, keyboard, mouse and notebook. As well as my keys and a cup in the side pocket. Also used it for traveling and the zipper inside allowed me to safely store important items and zip the outside overall! Beautiful color and the pop of blue in the straps are a very nice touch. Messed up my first bag by leaving something in the pockets that wouldn’t wash out, so I ran and brought another!!

This bag is a replacement bag for our sporting events. I like the different options of wearing/carrying the bag. The interior is spacious and looks like it will hold all of our necessities. The material appears to be very sturdy.

This bad is so cute and versatile! I got it to use as an every day bag for work to hold my laptop and notebooks. I also envisioned using it for travel and out and about with baby. Was super excited about all the pockets BUT the first day I went to zip it, the zipper broke off. Planning to return as it is now useless. Very disappointed there are no stoppers to keep the zipper on.
