March 4, 2013 - March 4, 2013- I purhcased this as well as the larger:Recycled Tire Tube Handbag - Afra. This Sofi bag is much smaller than the Afra. I found it too narrow when un-zipped to comfortablably fit my hand/wrist. I'm 6' tall/slendar and my hand kept rubbing against the teeth of the zipper, making bruises/cuts/scratches on my hand. VERY frustrating getting new 'cuts' and not realizing its from going in/out of th purse. ONLY used it for a few days 2-3 and put it in the closet. May sell it on ebay to recoop $$. I did like the color and the length of the strap. It is NO WHERE NEAR as bright a green as is showen in the picture. TOO bad. I think the brigher green would look better. Would love to post a pic, don't think this site will allow it. The Afra bag works better for me. MUCH bigger inside with Key cord as well and inside pockets.

January 6, 2013 - This is such a great purse. Not too big, not too small. Has two pockets inside, as well as a zippered section. The key strap makes it so easy to find one's keys. Can be worn either on the shoulder or cross-body (my preference). Also, the green is not quite as vibrant as the picture suggests. Maybe each is different, but mine is a more muted green. I would have loved it either way, but I consider it a slight bonus.
