Cath Kidston Victoria Rose Saddle Bag

Advantages: spacious, practical, elegant
I absolutely adore my saddle bag. It is made of beautifully hard wearing fabric, and is the perfect size. It allows you to go out with all that you need, and even allows you to pop in a small amount of shopping while out and about - without allowing you to end up carrying sack fulls of unnecessary items.
Approximate dimensions taken from Cath Kidston Online: 34.5 x 24.5 x 9.5cm
It a wonderful elegant bag that could be used in any season, as the design would allow you to accessorise it with anything. It like so many of Cath Kidston's products is made from a beautiful vintage style printed fabric, and this adds a lovely feminine twist to the essentially utilitarian design. The body of the bag being blue is for me a change in the norm - as I am usually drawn to black bags - although I feel this makes it little bit more usable on the summer months...
The bag is filled with pockets which help avoid the frantic search for ringing mobile phones, and negate the need to search at the bottom a bag for lost keys while standing in the rain. It really is an all round winner.
The bag comes in a variety of colours, and different fabric designs, and has a fully adjustable strap on it so it can be worn across the body or over one shoulder at a variety of different heights. The large pockets are a great size, and could fit keys, phones or purses to make them easily accessible. The most useful are outside the bag but under the flap making them difficult for pickpockets to access but great to aid in finding things.
