Women's Landmark Verona Shoulder Bag
Outstanding quality, beautiful bag
The leather from which this bag is crafted is of the highest quality, and it is so well made; it is much more beautiful in person. I am incredibly particular about leather goods and have owned many expensive bags, and I am thrilled with the Landmark Verona Bag. The size is perfect. It holds a wallet, hairbrush, checkbook, cosmetics, cell phone, kindle, keys, and snacks, and it never looks stuffed or bursting. The strap is of a nice width for comfort and style and the drop length works well with all clothing. The inside pockets and zip pocket are of good sizes and are well placed, making the bag easy to keep organized. The outside pocket is very useful, and I appreciate the nonmagnetic snap, as magnets are not great for credit cards and usb drives. A leather bag of this quality will only get better with age. Thanks, Lands End. Please keep the Landmark line -- especially the gorgeous cognac color!

Practically perfect, beautiful classic handbag holds a lot!
Well-made, high-quality leather bag. It is a large bag, surprisingly lightweight for its size with an enormous storage capacity. The interior pockets for organizing and an interior zip pocket are pluses. I bought one in navy and black, and so far have had no problems with the zippers. Having a snap on the outer pocket is a minor inconvenience. The leather straps often slip off my shoulder so I usually carry it. Other than the strap slipping this bag is practically perfect.

This bag is the best handbag I have ever owned!
I love this bag! It's the perfect size and the Navy Blue color is beautiful. I'm so happy I bought this before they were all gone, if you're hesitating to purchase this handbag; don't wait much longer. I have owned a Coach bag and a Dooney and Bourke; those brands can't compare with Lands End quality, customer service, and warranty. The front pocket if perfect for your phone and keys. The main compartment is perfect for everyday necessities. I can fit my book, checkbook wallet, glasses, cosmetic bag, and sunglasses in the main compartment; with room left over. The zipper works great, the leather is soft, and the heat stamp I paid for is gorgeous. I guess I need to find a new home for D&B and Coach. Great job Lands Ends!!

Perfect size bag. I ordered my first in cognac and it was gorgeous, perfectly stamped gold foil (the hardware is gold on the cognac color bags only - I learned this the hard way!) with 3 initials, leather smooth. Ordered another in the wine color with monogramming of 2 initials in gold foil. When it arrived I had to send it back...again the leather was beautiful, but the hardware was silver (gold monogram oh no!) and that monogram of 2 initials directly below the SILVER LE emblem was completely off center. Re-order was 3 INITIAL MONOGRAM IN SILVER to match that SILVER hardware. It arrived centered this time, everything in matching silver, and that beautiful leather. I agree with the other posters, the zippers on these bags aren't the best by far in my experience not bad enough to deter purchase, it's just a shame to put a shabby zipper on such a nice bag, and by all means please put magnetized snaps on big ticket bags. The inside zippered side pocket works smoothly and there's 2 open pockets on the other internal side. Lining material imo is strong. Comes with an oversized blue drawstring bag to store it in. Will put a good leather conditioner on it to protect it from the elements before I enjoy it! Looking forward to it!

Well- constructed, this bag goes from casual to semi-dressy. Its large size is perfect for work.

Watch the Zipper
The bag was a nice size. The navy was a decent color, but still a little too light for what I wanted. The real reason I returned it was the that zipper was very hard to close. As a matter of fact I give up fighting trying to close it in fear I would break it or rip something. Other than than that the quality of the basic bag was decent.

The purse I was looking for
The Verona Shoulder Bag is beautiful and the perfect size for me. I love it, just hope it doesn't scar easily.

"Santa" has excellent taste!
Received this bag for Christmas and have been in love with it ever since! The quality of the leather is great and the style is a classic. I've read other reviews about the outside pocket having "snap" instead of magnetic closure and, while I see what they mean, it doesn't bother me -in fact when snap is closed it's seems more secure than a magnetic closure would be. The zipper started off a little stiff, but that has loosened up with use. I really love this bag. It looks like it will hold up to my wear and tear, which is good because I use one bag all the time until it dies. I think I'll have this one for a long, long time!

Quality at a Fantastic Price
This is one of the nicest purses I've ever owned, and I have a couple of Coach bags, and a Dooney & Bourke. The leather is beautifully tanned, smooth and not grainy. The purse was a little stiff when I first started using it, but after using it for about two weeks it softened up and took on a softer more comfortable-to-carry feel. There is a large outside pocket with a snap, which is kind of a pain to close when I have my purse zipped and secured, so I have to open the purse to snap the outside pocket. Gets kind of tedious, but I can live with it. There's also a large zippered pocket inside the purse, plus two smaller unzippered one for holding things like keys, cellphones and items you use frequently and have to get to quickly. I purchased the black, immediately fell in love with it, and purchased the Cognac (brown) as well. It's a quality product that, with care, will last probably as long as my Coach bags. All-in-all, I consider this a great score on a great purse at a great price.

Style is comfortable and color choices are good.
Handle length is good and adjust three different lengths. I would,however, wish the snap closure would be a magnetic clasp. It would be easier for cell phone and keys. I had been looking at it all season, but the original price was high. It went on sale and got a real bargain.
