I'm not a "big" fancy purse person, I usually just carry a small change purse which holds my credit cards and license. But I was looking for something so I could "carry" since I have a concealed weapons permit and this seemed perfect with the front pocket. Fits nicely, easy access just in case and its not too big where stuff "gets lost inside". My best friend always commented how much she liked it and asked where I got it, I told her Military Luggage Company. She went on your site and said she couldn't find it, so I decided to get one for her birthday this year. Its still here waiting for her to open it LOL. She lives about an hour and 1/2 away, so now its going to be a birthday/Christmas present :) I know she's going to love it!!
