Flimsier than I hoped.I ordered this and the Edie Tote, looking for a lightweight bag for winter. I hoped this would be a roomier version of the regular Edie bag, but it’s very flimsy and doesn’t have the wider bottom of the small Edie bag.
The strap is far too short for crossbody with a heavy coat (I’m 5’8” for reference).
I’ll be returning this and keeping my fingers crossed Roots brings back the newer Edie Tote, which I love more each time I use it, and would be happy to buy in more colours.

Nice everyday size but small design flawLast time I was in the store, I saw this bag and I loved the rich yellow and the size so I picked one up. I have this style (but the smaller version) which I've used for backpacking trips before so I was surprised when the tassel that is on the back zipper kept coming undone when just running errands. I don't know if because it's slightly longer so it hits more on the hip but I kept having that issue, to where my last shopping trip I lost it along the way. I was pretty annoyed because their isn't much else to grip onto to open it. I'll have to go somewhere and buy something to clip onto it, which isn't ideal because you shouldn't have to do that and a small bit of stitching would have avoided this issue. I have 7 Roots bags and they are usually really spot on with these small details and I just trusted this one would be to the same standards. I won't be making anymore impulse purchases anytime soon.

Amazing bagI love the festival tribe bag because it is so simple and practical, yet gorgeous. It provides a back zipper compartment as well as easily adjustable strap length. This bag works for many occasions. In addition, I like that the bag does not use a full liner– this provides less chance of rips and tears on the inside.
Overall, stunning bag. This will be one that I use for years.

simple and practicalthis is a simple and practical bag. no lining inside. has a small pocket inside, which is too small for usage. I love external zipper pocket for my phone. it is a decent size to fit a book/agenda/planner.
i wish it came with short handle, regular detachable cross body strap instead of current 'ring' strap (strap location limits opening of the bag), larger inner pocket. it would have been perfect! i got it for sale.

Simple yet elegantThe jet back is more of a charcoal colour. True its not your usual sturdy tribe bag but its great to carry bare essentials. Lucky for me that exactly what I needed it for. Its deep enough it carry larges phones & wallets. I use it with both formal as well as informal wear and looks great with both, very versatile. I thought $128 is a bit too steep for this bag glad I pick mine during their sale. I love it hope you give it a try.

Just RightI have many Roots bags and this one is exactly the size I wanted. Light and simple in design and just right for a smaller cross shoulder bag.

Feels cheapThis purse feels cheaply made and looks unfinished. The strap is also much shorter than my other cross body bags, so with a jacket on it sits very awkwardly. Sadly, this will be going back.
