I love, love, LOVE my black Bleecker Soft Port Duffle so much that I decided to get one of the Mini Sport Duffles. I was searching high and low for the perfect smaller bag to switch into for running errands and going out with my hubby. I really wanted a different color than black and did not want the brindle color, way too light for my taste and I did not want one of the bright colors. Luckily my patience paid off and now I have the British Tan with dark nickel hardware. The brown is the perfect color and it works wonderful with the strap crossbody, or doubled.
Strap doubled:

Side by side with my black duffle:

Filled up, I have a good 4" left at the top (the only thing that I had to really switch out was my wallet from a long to a compact one):

Mod shots (please have mercy!)
Strap doubled (has a good drop):

Crossbody:

Hopes this helps someone with their decision with this wonderful little bag. It is a lot bigger than I thought and holds a lot more. I was thinking I was going to have to make more cuts to what I carry everyday, but the only thing I had to downsize was my wallet. I am even considering getting the brick grommet mini one too!!:biggrin:

:biggrin: TWINS on the mini ! Isn't it great ! I love my brindle logo large duffle so much and thought I would go for a different color in the mini size, but I saw the British tan and that was it . I do want a black mini also. Too cute to pass on and great little bags ! Enjoy !

I bought one of these last week in grey. It looks small from the outside, but is actually big on the inside.

Did I say brick...whoops! I meant black. At the time I think my brick grommet wristlet was sitting on my desk and my mind just went with it.
