The compact bag size is perfect for errands or a day trip where you don't want to haul around a giant bag. The long strap converts this bag from a cross body bag to a backpack with a couple of easy steps. You simply unclip the strap, thread it through the back 'tunnel' and re-clip it to the bottom D-rings. The bag also has exposed boxed corners and a zippered corner on the back.
