What's in your Bridgit?

I am going to Vegas this weekend and always buy something Coach when there. I think I will pick up the amethyst Bridgit. But I have some questions directed to you Bridgit owners:
1. Does the amethyst have the striped lining?
2. Will my slim envelope wallet fit in one of the compartments?
Other than my wallet I usually carry my cell, keys, small wristlet, lipstick and compact. Do you think I can fit those items comfortably in a Bridgit?

I like the idea of the compartments; especially when I go to the casinos; my gambling money needs to be separate or I'd go broke!;)

I have all the Bridgits, including the amethyst one, and with the new thinner leather, you can actually stuff a tiny bit more in these. Both the amethyst and bottle green do come with the Legacy stripe lining. I use a full size wallet. I'll search for pics if I have them on this PC and post them for you. It should be the perfect bag for you, and I think it will comfortably hold everything you listed. BRB...

You can fit so much more than you would think into the Bridgit. I can fit my full size wallet, cell phone, makeup bag(that's pretty stuffed), keys and camera.

Ok, I'm back... I also wanted to say that the stripe lining is the OLD Legacy stripe lining, and not the new variegated stripe lining that you see in the new Legacy satchel and tote. So the Bridgits remain unchanged except that they have gone to the garcia leather. The bag itself is structured enough such that the thinner leather is not a problem.

Here are a few old pics that I took a while ago... One shows the exact wallet I use in mine, the amethyst Legacy wallet. Also attached is the amethyst Bridgit next to the teal one, just for leather comparision, and pics of the two new Bridgits (one is bottle green).

As I said these are old pics. I'll also try to dig up my old pic that shows all the contents I carry, but basically I carry the wallet in the photo, Vzn Chocolate cell phone, iPod Touch, thin cosmetic bag that's the size of a wristlet with a few makeup items, plastic pill bottle for Excedrin, keys, and some papers/coupons I put in the inner pocket. It all fits fine, but you just have to pack it well or otherwise it will make the bag stick out ugly in places.

Do you know if the walnut Bridgit has gone to the outlets? When in Vegas I plan to visit the Coach store at the Premium Outlet mall.

I saw the camel last week and weekend, and I know the rose has been there. Not sure about the walnut, but I guess it should. I would call your outlet, get on a client tracker list, and also have them do a nationwide search for both inventory and in transit info. If they tell you they can't, they CAN but don't want to be bothered or don't know how...so just ask for someone that can do that, and if you get put off about it, I would call a flagship outlet and have someone there do it. I got put off once and was told a manager would call me, but she never did. I'm not sure where you're located, but Lancaster, PA (Tanger outlet) is very helpful in this regard if you find the right person to do it.

Thanks again. I just need to decide if I want to pay full price for the amethyst; I think I do!

Yeah, unfortunately right now, there's little option unless you can get lucky and score when it comes in the outlet! Sometimes that happens, but then sometimes the SAs purchase them too. I got both my camel and black at the outlet a while back, and I'm certain those were customer returns because at that time they had not been deleted from the website and stores.

Wow, I'm really impressed with how much you can fit into the bridgits. I never thought they were that big. I wonder if my outlet has any. Its such a nice bag. Looks like a great bag for date nite w/ hubby or Girls Nite Out. Thanks for the info.
