Stormy Kromer® challenge: use the word inestimable (too great to calculate) in a sentence. Response: The combination of things you can place in the Companion Purse is inestimable. Sippy cups and Petoskey stones. A flashlight and your favorite Alfred Hitchcock. We've combined our most durable and fashionable fabrics to create a single, perfect bag that will hold almost anything, go almost anywhere, and garner inestimable compliments.
I was worried about this bag staying closed as the description lists only a zippered inside pocket. The pocket is very large along the back interior. There is a magnetic snap on the flap and another on the inside center of the bag. Stays closed even when shifting. Very roomy. Cute!
I love my companion purse!! It is the best purse ever. At first I was please, but sad because I carry a lot of stuff with me and it didn’t all fit. But over time the purse will mold to what you have in the purse (kind of like your favorite Stromy Kromer hat).
I purchased the companion purse in the frost plaid to match one of my caps. This is my first Stormy purse and I was not disappointed! There is a zippered pocket inside the purse to help separate items. I love the material and it makes a great crossover purse
I am a huge cross body bag fan. Since becoming a mom of a toddler I realized it would be really nice to have a bigger bag that can carry a few diapers, wipes and snacks instead of having to drag several bags around. Being a Stormy Kromer fan I gravitated to this bag. I finally ordered and it is exactly what I wanted. I have plenty of space for my daughters things and my stuff. The waxed cotton and Partridge Plaid are beautiful and will age well. The bag is the perfect cross body if you have a trip or have kids!
When I first received this purse I thought it might be too small as I carry a lot of things for my two active boys, but the size is deceiving! I can fit so much stuff in it (including an emergency diaper or sippy cup)! I am also quite skeptical when it come to "cross-body" claims as I am very tall, so many purse straps are not long enough for me. I do have to extend the strap as far as it goes, but it fits perfectly. It frees up my hands and arms when I am carrying my kids and helping them get in and out of the car. I like the ease of closure with the 2 magnetic snaps and the inside zippered pocket is way bigger than any I've ever seen. The only suggested change I have is maybe add a zippered pocket on the outside back for my cell phone.
I bought this purse in a sidewalk sale at the factory this past summer and really love how well built it is. It is also pretty easy to care for and clean. My purse is lighter tan with Harris tweed and dye from a new pair of jeans stained the back of the purse where the purse rubbed on my pants. I was afraid my favorite purse was ruined, but it came clean with spot cleaning with Mild laundry soap. I used the wax sold on this site to reward where I cleaned it and it is good as new! I think this purse will last me years!
