Stylish, functional but (sadly) uncomfortableI adore Roots. I've been wearing their classic crossbody bags for 6+ years. This Riverside Saddle bag has a fantastic amount of practical pockets, everything is beautifully lined and it functions well as a mid-size shoulder bag. Unfortunately, the strap is too thin and twists frequently, I'm continuously rearranging the strap and the bag to get comfortable. To make matters worst the functional/adjustable part of the strap digs into my ribs or spine, no matter which way I wear it (front or back), or how I adjust the length. I'm constantly reminded I'm wearing this bag which is disappointing, as my previous Roots bag (the Venetian Village) felt invisible when draped over my body.
