This was my third STG bag.
I have two of the Encounters and Love them - hence I have two. I wanted a bigger opening for my phone. Vista Vail dimensions said bigger - so I tried it. Didn't seem any bigger, the quality didn't seem as good as what I have. The magnet wouldn't hold it closed, the clear screen seemed thinner and didn't work as well. I returned this version and will continue using my Encounter and watch for another version that might fit my phone and my needs.
I am used to paring down for a crossbody wallet. This holds enough-key fob, small mini fold up brush, lipstick etc. I am really not a big cell phone user who needs to talk and text while out but it is convenient to have it with me.
There is one thing different from the one I had previously which is when I open it to get a credit card it sort of flops open exposing what is in that section of the wallet. I threw out my old one after 3 years of use so I can't compare but I know I didn't have that issue before.
Love it, just wish the magnetic closer was stronger. Even if I had to pay a little more.
Awesome, I love the purse that I chose and it’s working very well for me. This is probably my fourth purse that I have bought. One thing is that they were out real quick
I love my purse. It’s GREAT!
