Usability + Functionality
I have a really easy time using this bag. It is spacious enough for me to fit my long Louis Vuitton Zippy Wallet, which is a must, and it also has a back slit pocket that fits my phone. The inside is compact but still roomy, and it’s really important for me to have plenty of room to fit my usual must-haves.
The top of the bag features a structured roll top, and this makes carrying easy as well. As I reach into the bag to get out my belongings, I end up grabbing the bag like a clutch at the top, and the sturdy roll top makes this task easier. The turnlock closure is easy to open to get into the purse, but leaves everything inside secure. I’m unsure why there is a shorter handle because I can never see myself using it; I stick to the longer strap for shoulder and crossbody wear.
Coach has been in the business of leather goods for a very long time, so they have the design process down to a science. My only gripe is when I carry the bag over my shoulder, the strap is so long that I have to grab the bottom of the bag and pull it up to be able to shuffle through the inside. Also, the hand strap (which is not removable) seems rather pointless, I can’t imagine anyone carrying it by that so it seems to be more of a pointless aesthetic addition. Otherwise, this bag scores high for usability and functionality.
