I needed this bag to serve as a diaper/work bag. It fits everything I need for my toddler and my 13-inch MacBook (plus a mouse and cord). I love the vegan leather. The coffee and creme color combination is beautiful. I did buy the extended straps because I’m taller with a curvy frame. My favorite things about this bag are the balanced weight distribution and the cup holders. The design and padded sleeve allow me to carry my diaper bag essentials and my laptop without the bag feeling too heavy. Although, if the company offered padded straps as an add-on, I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase them. The cupholders are brag-worthy. We’re talking full-size water bottles and Contigo sippy cups size. That’s a sign that a parent designed these bags because they understand the frustration of a diaper bag (cup holder) that doesn’t fit anything larger than a juice box. I love this bag so much that I ordered it in the merlot. The black and forest green are on my Christmas wish list. I tell all my friends with littles about this bag. We’re going to Disneyland next summer, and this should hold everything I need. What made it worth the investment was the versatility. It has a professional enough look to serve as a work bag for me and a carry-on for travel. Thank you for creating this bag. I’m so glad I finally made the purchase!
I looked at the Gemini for a really long time as a replacement for my teaching bag. I never spend this much on a bag, but I was tired of carrying multiple bags to and from school. I kept seeing the ads on Facebook and decided to go for it. This bag is WORTH IT! I thought it would be too small but this bag is huge and carries a lot. I am so glad I decided to buy it, and now I want the mini for an every day purse.
I debated for months on whether or not to order the Gemini bag. The price was more than I would typically spend. I researched and researched, watched videos on you tube, etc. I finally ordered one about 2 weeks ago. I got the coffee brown Gemini and I am in love! It is big enough to hold what my standard backpack held and is not heavy at all. The color is rich, the handles are thick and sturdy. I ordered the XL strap so I can wear as a backpack as I’m a little thick. It works amazing! I have no regrets about my purchase and am so happy with it!
I absolutely love the bag, but the strap is SO short. I'm 5'10" and I couldn't get it over both shoulders as a backpack. I ordered both the long and extra long straps to see if those were better, and while the long strap comes in Coffee Brown, the extra long strap does not. So while it's the right length, it's not a matching color and it drives me nuts. The second they make the extra long strap in the coffee brown I'm going to buy one and then it'll be the perfect bag. I ordered the bundle with the Ara Crossbody and I have the same issue with the strap on that one, so I will only be able to use it as a clutch. If they make that strap in a longer version in the correct color I'll immediately order that too and then it'll make a fantastic crossbody bag. Overall I'm happy with the bags, but the straps leave a lot to be desired.
We do offer the XL strap in Coffee! If you need some extra room, it's a great option!
I ordered a bag for my daughter for Christmas, because past experiences ordering online with other stores I ordered far in advance, but I got the bag in less the 10 days! Happy customer
