      I bought this bag approximately 2 years ago and have used it almost daily since then, under snow, rain or sunshine. This is the first real leather bag I've ever owned, so I wasn't really sure how it would hold up to the weather here (Eastern Canada) or how I was supposed to treat it. I ended up never using any protectant sprays/lotions, but I have carried it under heavy rain a few times and it's always dried perfectly, without leaving any spots. The leather is buttery soft. There are 2 large front pockets, 1 zippered compartment inside, a few card slots and 2 slots for phone and/or various cards (as you can partly see from the pictures on Fossil's website). My only complaint with this bag is that its hardware is heavy. It's not as comfortable as I'd like to carry all day long and you can't just throw this bag on any surface because it's going to be super noisy and possibly damaging (not that it ever happened to me, but I can imagine it being an issue in some rare cases). That being said, I'd still recommend it strongly, unless you want a feather-lite bag.

      I received this purse for Christmas last year. Within two months, the top zipper was falling off of the bag, the leather was falling apart and the lining inside the bag was coming out. Also, all of the thread holding the zipper to the purse had fallen out. The top zipper is now useless, therefore I can not secure my belongings inside safely. While the purse does look great, it does not last.

      AMAZING PURSE!!

      Comments about Fossil Explorer Cross-Body Bag:

      I received this bag as an XMAS gift from my husband 2 years ago & have used it every day since. It is the BEST purse I've ever owned! It is soft & so well made and has a very comfortable strap & beautiful, sturdy zippers. I have purchased many nice bags over the years (Coach, Dooney&Burke etc) and this by far has been my favorite. It still looks great & I frequently get compliments. I highly recommend this bag, you won't be disappointed!

      Comments about Fossil Explorer Cross-Body Bag:

      I just bought this purse with hopes it will last. I love the color size, pockets and long strap. I am not a fade purse person, I want function and classic look, this did it for me.

        Beautiful Crossbody

        By Bibi Maal

        from San Diego, CA, United States

        Comments about Fossil Explorer Cross-Body Bag:

        Fossil products are the best! I have own several different bags both in canvas and leather and have loved them all from beginning to end. I still have a couple of very old bags, and other than some color fading, the craftsmanship remains the same: timeless!!!

        fell apart!

        By erinkat

        Comments about Fossil Explorer Cross-Body Bag:

        I bought this bag in dark turquoise and loved it- it was soft and pretty but FELL APART in less than 2 wks- completely ripped at the seems, like it was glued instead of stitched! I made the mistake of not keeping my receipt and so only got a fraction of what I paid back... keep your receipt this product is really poorly made!

        Great all purpose bag!

        Comments about Fossil Explorer Cross-Body Bag:

        I have purchased three of these in different colors, black for my granddaughter, espresso for my daughter-in-law and neutral multi for myself. The leather is so soft and the compartments are so convenient. I love that it converts from a cross body to a normal shoulder bag.

        Spacious, yet not bulky

        By FossilGuest

        from Santa Clara, CA, United States

        Comments about Fossil Explorer Cross-Body Bag:

        I just received this product. I bought it in Ruby Wine and upon receiving it noticed a few blemishes which seem to be from the hardware on the strap being pressed into the leather. Knowing that some normal wear and tear will occur from regular use, I decided it was not significant enough to warrant a return. The bag is slightly larger than I thought it would be based on the images, but it is actually perfectly sized for what I need. I can carry a medium-sized sketchbook, wallet, phone, and pencil bag in an organized system and still have room left over. I think that this will be ideal for both everyday use and travel.

        Comments about Fossil Explorer Cross-Body Bag:

        I bought this purse yesterday and I'm completely in love with it! This is my second Fossil handbag and I wasn't disappointed with my previous handbag which was the mini explorer crossbody. I'm so glad I purchased both of them! They are both quality products with great designs.

        very spacious

        By jaylen

        from Virginia, United States

        Comments about Fossil Explorer Cross-Body Bag:

        i got this bag for christmas in he camel color and was absolutely loved it. i have only owned smaller crossbodies so this is huge to me. however, i recently went to the mall with some friends and i was wearing dark wash jeans that ive washed multiple times and the dye on my jeans came off on the bag. since the bag is the camel color it was very noticable. i tried to wipe it off with some make up wipes but i couldnt get it completely off. its not really that noticable now but you can still kind of tell. love the bag but if youre planning on buying one of the lighter colors do not wear dark wash jeans while youre carrying it. i wish i could re purchase it so that my bag wasnt stained.
