    We ordered the Gootium Canvas Messenger Bag in the army Green color. It arrived in the expected time frame, nice and on schedule! Let me start by saying first, that we ordered this bag several months ago and I decided to wait to write this review until I had plenty of time to use the bag and see how it wears after some use. Secondly, I have been looking for a good quality messenger bag for YEARS now (at least ten years)- and have looked in just about every store I could think of. I just wanted a basic, well made, messenger bag that zipped closed for security. When I found this Gootium bag here on Amazon, I was very excited to finally find something that met my requirements, seemed well made, and was not super expensive!! (I have since come to believe that $30 or $40 is a GREAT DEAL for this awesome bag!!!) When I got this in the mail, this first thing I noticed was how nicely it was packaged. Also, I was so excited to see that it really did appear in person just as it appeared in the pictures! The army green color does look a bit different in person (a little more of a khaki/brownish green color) but that was not something i was very concerned with- and also, it is not unusual for army greens to have that brownish hue to them. Also it really is a very minor difference from the picture, not very noticeable. I started using the bag right away, and I am still using it every day! I have to say– this is the nicest bag/purse I have ever gotten!!!! I am a typical female who loves her bags, and I have had all sorts of bags over the years… I have gotten things from army surplus stores, etc, and still have not had anything that has been made so well and with such quality!! I was hesitant to order a purse online, but I am so very glad I tried this Gootium bag– i know that this is a bag I will get a ton of use out of, for years to come!! (I also plan to post an update after more time has passed, to let shoppers know how it has continued to hold up) The quality of the canvas is great- nice and thick, without being all stiff (in fact, it even has a softness to it). The seams are nice and secure, and the strap is sewn directly into the bag. In my experience, the places where most bags go wrong is where the strap connects to the body of the bag (especially since my bags tend to be rather heavy since i carry so much stuff with me! =D )– this strap is not only made of a thick, strong material (even thicker than the canvas in the body portion)- but the strap is also soft for how thick and strong the material is (it is also a nice thickness/width and does not dig into my shoulder). It is reinforced by the square and X stitching in the place where it is sewn to the body, and in addition to the extra stitching, it also has a round, metal piece that is reinforcing the strap to the bag!! The metal hardware appears to be brass and is of superior quality. Also- I am in love with the zippers!! They are also brass, and zip very smoothly– they have not caught once since i have used this bag. They are sewn in very well, just like the rest of the stitching. Also, the leather pulls are very nice and are holding up very well. The size of this bag is also perfect! It is not a small bag, but also not huge either!! I carry one of those large check-book-sized wallets and this bag accommodates my large wallet, coin purse, make up bag, small notebook, several sets of keys, tons of charging cords/cables, bottles of advil, and tons of other small items that organize nicely in the pockets. I LOVE that it isn’t overly organizer-ish, yet it also isn’t just a big pocket either… It has the perfect number of pockets to keep things orderly, yet still open enough to find everything easily! I could go on even further about how much i love this bag, but i am sure you get the picture by now! XD **I would highly recommend this bag, and I would definitely purchase from this company and seller again!!! ** ~~I am continually impressed by the quality of this bag <3 Hope this has helped!!

    I use this every day. I wanted something small Like a purse but large enough for a couple diapers and baby wipes. I was tired of lugging around a huge diaper bag and wanted to downsize to something that marched my sporty style and was durable. This bag is so perfect!!! The pockets in front hold my keys perfectly so I don’t have to digging around the bottom for them. The other front pocket I use for 2-3 tubes of chapstick and hair ties. The main pocket holds my wallet, a package of wipes and a few diapers without being bulky on my hip. The strap is soft but very good quality and adjust easily yet holds its length. The buckles and snaps are quality metal. I wear it crossbody because I am constantly chasing my very independent two year old and it never slips off my body. The length of the strap is generous. I am 5 ft 1 inch tall and there’s plenty of room to spare if a much taller wanted this as a crossbody bag. The style is spot on for a vintage messenger bag. This brand has another bag that has more buckles if you want that look and I had a difficult time deciding between the two. But this one is perfect for my needs the color is great because I wear a lot of earth tones and this bag just goes with everything I wear. I can’t say enough about this bag! No, I was not paid for this review and I received NO free products. This is a a high quality bag. I highly recommend it. Read more

    first impression – looks good, feels durable enough, seems like a decent option in this price range. i compared it to 2 other similar bags, the Rothco canvas ammo shoulder bag (middle) and the Sweetbriar classic messenger bag (right), and the Gootium seems like the best option for what I am looking for. it uses snap and zipper closures, preferable to me over velcro, and feels like the right size for a small shoulder bag or satchel. probably not going to fit a laptop in here, but for carrying shades/case, kindle, pen, phone notepad keys lighters etc it’s the right size. has 2 outer pockets, one smallish outer zipper pocket and a more discreet small zipper pocket in the main compartment. notably this is the most expensive of the 3 options. i also purchased the maxpedition gear 2-inch shoulder pad for the strap, since there is no padding included with it. the color is a bit off but overall i’m pleased with the way they work together. will see how they hold up over time, but 4/5 stars seems right for now.

    A while back, I realized that I wasn’t carrying my camera around when I needed it, so I went looking for a small camera bag that could also serve as an all-purpose “man bag.” I bought this. The one thing I did was to cut a thick (3/16″) sheet of felt and fit it into the bag to protect the contents. I also removed the logo, but who doesn’t? That being done, it can hold easily: A notebook, a paperback, a Kindle Paperwhite, a spare pair of glasses, an infusion set (I’m T1 diabetic) a granola bar, a folding knife, a mask, a folded shopping bag, a wallet, a photo wallet holding 3 spare camera batteries, a small camera (Fuji X20) with strap, and a case holding five fountain pens. And there’s still room. OK, it’s more khaki than military green…not idea, but that’s OK. We’ll see how durable it is over time, but for now, I always have my camera with me, and I’m no longer stuck sitting on my wallet. I was concerned at first that it would be just a fancied-up version of the Rothko ammo bag, but it’s not. It’s bigger and better-designed. I like it. Read more
