Yes, I tried it on. It can be worn on the arm or the shoulder. The leather is very soft. There are "clasps" that hold the bag in at the top so that it can be worn "narrow" as pictured above with the top clasps together or more "wide" with the the clasps detached. I believe there are at least two sizes of the bag. The hardware details on the bag are very subtle and struck me as slightly "western".
