Big Buddha delivers Western style, and just a hint of edge, with this Saddle messenger bag.
The embossed flourishes and contrast stitching around the uniquely shaped flap give the Saddle its country character. It's no hick though. The turnlock closure has been one of the most popular clasps in recent seasons, and its neutral colors are right on trend. I'm particularly fond of this earthy pink, but the Saddle's also available in stormy gray and a dirty cream hue. And then there are those spiky studs, another contemporary touch which give the Saddle real personality. I'm not quite sure the metal points gel with the rest of the design, but they do give this messenger real attitude.
The Saddle's casual, everyday looks are matched with a functional design. It's large but not very wide so it'll sit comfortably against the body. The dark blue inner lining doesn't make it easy to see what you're carrying, but there are enough interior pockets to keep your smallest valuables organized. The regular strap is too short to be really useful, but thankfully Big Buddha also includes a much longer one. It's adjustable too so you can wear the Saddle as a shoulder bag or cross-body purse.
At less than $100 the Saddle is a bargain, but thankfully it doesn't look like one. It's made from one of Big Buddha's better synthetics, and as such the Saddle is one of the label's better bags.
