Customer Testimonials:

Love your bags. Nellie gave me one for a birthday gift a few years ago. I had just bought a new Coach bag and a new Vera Bradley bag. I thought I'd just carry the one she gave me for a couple of weeks so I could tell her thanks and that I had used it and not lie to her. It took me a few weeks to figure out that with all the compartments, I didn't need my little "organizer bags" inside. That really lightened my load and I fell in love with it. I now have 4 and have been giving them as gifts too. I did away with my billfold and carry the "coin bag" I've bought the metal credit card carrier for them and use the zipper compartment on your bag for the "rewards" cards it seems every store gives you and business cards that I need routinely. Nancy

 

I must tell you that I "lent" the small passport purse to my daughter when she went to Mexico... I have been looking all over for it since she returned....and then I found out she still had it....she liked it so much she is using it as an everyday wallet, and forgot to give it back to me!!

Oh well, I still have the grande one!!

God job on designing these!

Bobbie

 

I love the new bag. It holds a ton of stuff, feels balanced, and rarely feels too heavy, no matter what I've got in it. It held up in a drenching downpour, keeping contents nice and dry. The "waterproof" tote bag I was using as a day-pack (not yours) failed to do so. - Lynn

 

Well I was waiting to see if my new bag would work when I had to go to the suburbs because I have to carry more stuff in it. Much to my surprise and delight, everything fit without a problem! So I can now officially thank you for having created the perfect bag! The extra few inches you added to the design made all the difference in the world. And the way I normally carry it when I'm not going to the suburbs, it's not too heavy and doesn't put a strain on my back so it's comfortable to walk with. I'm so happy you listen to your sisters and other customers. You have one VERY happy customer here. I tell everyone about you and no one believes all the features your purses have because they just look so nice! This was so worth the wait! Thanks for getting it to me before my trial starts. I have no idea how you can top this, but I can't think of any reason why I need you to! I love all the new features (and the old ones), the design is the best, in short, I'm thrilled!!! Thank you so much! Wishing you continued success, Maretta

 

Thanks to @DayMakersBeSafe I was traveling safe to the #CaptainAmericaEvent bit.ly/1lNjSDn #travel #BeSafe

I just received the citystrap in black leather. It looks great and is made exceptionally well. Worth the price.

thank you.

 

Good Afternoon

I would like to thank you for your 1st class service, I have purchased the bags from Australia and they have arrived within 10 days in perfect condition.

I will be telling all my friends about your bags as they do look first class, secure bags for travelling.

Many thanks again

Debbie

 

My Testimonial:

Upon visiting DayMaker’s website one is introduced to a visual tour of the magnitude of quality work that this artistic GENIUS can & will create; which is only rivaled by one's actual seeing, receiving/owning any of the products first hand!

Billy Norris....'just an amazing craftsman of superior expertise & professionalism! This "DayMaker” designer and creator is a true "DREAM-MAKER” of the highest caliber. Billy’s care-filled actions in his designs lend creative purpose to his making just the right type of "security bag/wallet/waist pack" that anyone, who travels to and fro, needs and wants. Mr. Norris has proven himself to be a conscientious designer and manufacturer of excellent bags and wallets of high (state of the art) quality while also being able to keep his products cost effective, a rarity in a most competitive industry.

How do I think that he has amassed his clientele? ...because he lives that which he believes in: the importance of placing customer satisfaction and needs in high regard and respect. Time after time, I’ve experienced firsthand that Mr. Norris’ word is indeed his bond; he stays strong in his commitment to both product excellence and in complete customer approval.

Henry Ford once said, "You cannot build a reputation on what you’re going to do.” I love that quote. It speaks to me about one of the qualities that I most admire in DayMakers' Billy Norris: The quality of both talking the talk and walking the walk; of being a person who manufacturers products that are exactly as fine, as durable, and as stylish as what is described in their respective summaries. Understandably, Billy’s "business success” has much to do with his trustworthy "client-relationship success”. ..and that takes time. By delivering praiseworthy value for his customers, (of which I am proud to say I am one of his many patrons), he has won my business… my trust, as well as my respect. He is as impeccably honest as he is talented in his designs. It is no wonder that his long career in business has successfully flourished since 1979 and why I wholeheartedly thank him for all of his arduous work and attention to product quality and detail.

Hi Billy!

I’m back from my trip and just wanted to THANK YOU again for getting me the bag and also let you know that it was PERFECT! It fit everything I listed below as well as a whole lot more. It was the only bag I needed when I was out and about doing sightseeing during the entire trip. I got a lot of compliments and inquiries from people that noticed it and I passed along your website information.

Kindest Regards,

Shari

 

Thank you The "Zebra" fits a practical and morale booster need. Suzy was diagnosed with MS in December and she really needs "day makers"!

The good news for her is she is taking a drug which reduces "nerve pain episodes", Tecfidera. The bad news is that the drug course is $55K per year.

She was turned down for the drug by her husband's insurance. Plucky Susan called Biogen Idec, the drug maker, with a plea for financial aid.

She was convincing and has been given a drug course for a year at no cost. Nothing is free! What happens down the road is not rosy but Susan seems up to the challenge

Daymakers seems to be ahead of the curve with innovation. At 82, appreciate my 2nd Daymaker ID wallet.

The wallet allows me to go out the door with almost everything I need for the road. I do have a few "senior" moments!

Thank you Daymakers!

Jack

 

I love your products and eagerly receive your newsletters hoping that you will be creating some bags that I would love to see…As the Lord provides you the wisdom and creativity to design I trust yo will be blessed with many new buyers and the gleeful return of some oldie but goodies as well!

 

I found it in the Magellan Catalog about 4-5 years ago -and went into a panic when I couldn't find it in a current catalog, I even tried Amazon. Then I had the bright idea of looking in the purse -and there you were. This style is very important to me. I walk with a walker, my shoulders slightly bent forward. So, wrapping the strap around my neck doesn't work -the only thing that works is your purse.

Ellen

 

Looking forward to using my Daymakers bags when I travel, AND at other times! Betty

 

Love the separate wallet leashes, BTW! Allows me to be secure with my preexistant other smaller taking-on-walks bags.

Lisa.

 

THANKS so much - I can't believe how hard it is being without my all of my daymaker choices!

Sherrie

 

WOW -- ordered this on Monday and received Wednesday. Outstanding service! I enjoy all of my Daymaker purses, but I think this one will become one of my favorites. Thank you.

 

I really love these bags and appreciate your offer of replacement. I've actually had two of the taupe ones. I ordered the ones 3-1/2 years ago because they were on sale and I had enjoyed the first one, although I had not kept it as clean as I would have liked and jumped at the chance for a new one. My husband has purchased a couple Coach bags for me over the years. They are still in fine shape but don't have anywhere near the nice pockets and convenience of the DayMakers, so yours are my bags of choice.

Laura

 

Thank you so much for reaching out to me regarding my father. He was a devoted waist pack wearer for over 25 years and I bet that he was a customer of yours for over 15 years which is how long he lived in Santa Barbara. It was a signature item of his that he work everywhere. Thank you again.

Warm regards,

Jeanne Kane

 

Hello, this is Kim, I placed an order for several Packies a few weeks ago. I was writing to tell you that I really like them! My trip was hassle free as far as packing goes and it was easy to locate things in my suitcase while staying in a hotel room. TSA did check my bag and it made me feel better that my clothing did not get taken apart during their inspection. I would recommend this product to any busy traveler.

 

I found your bag waiting for me when I arrived at the hotel in San Francisco on Sunday. Thank you so much for sending it and so quickly. The prospectus of other things is mouth-watering.

Best wishes and thanks,

Rosamond

 

I really appreciate your diligence and wonderful service. I love Daymakers and swear by them for all my trips.

Emma

 

The large passport case worked really well, even with 3 passports and covers in them and various travel cards.

I'm liking the new RFID card holder, but I think it needs an eye to attach it to a leash. I'm the kind of person who if my head wasn't attached...

I think just an eyelet grommet would work, so I am going to try that. I want to get at least one more so I can keep the cards I use all the time in one and my backup cards in another.

 

Again, from the bottom of my traveling heart, thanks for making my life easier. Some day I hope to have enough time to get photos of what I have done with your products. My entire medicine cabinet is now Packies. I have a built in cupboard with baskets and the baskets have Packies

Lindalouise

 

Your service is impeccable. I believe that businesses like yours, are the foundation of our society.

Gratefully,

John

 

We have been enjoying the fudge and the Expresso is of course our Fave. My Mom is partial to the cocoanut/orange flavor, but she had only a little bit.

Sincerely,

Barbara

 

thanks! love the bag...friends have expressed interest in stuff...will pass info on to them!

Chris

 

I have always liked dealing with you folks.

-Gina

 

Many thanks for the order which I received on Monday. I am delighted to have a new Daymakers wallet and my husband loves his leather one.

I will be sure to tell my friends all about the items and hopefully you may get more orders from the Isle of Man. Thanks for enclosing a catalogue.

Merry Christmas,

Catherine

 

The more I'm using this, the better I like it. Not only is it tamperproof, but the neoprene sleeves keep the carabiners upright and protect the camera from getting scratched by them...although they're so smooth I don't see how that could happen -and I think it looks pretty cool.

Kevin

 

BILLY, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE YOUR NEW DOUBLE BAG WITH THE TWO COMPARTMENTS/HALVES SEWN TOGETHER! IT IS EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED AND NEEDED.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

SHAY (C.L.) MATTHEWS

 

Thank you so much. It is more than fair. I think you have a great product and outstanding customer service.

Robyn

 

The specially manufactured bag that you made for me arrived safely today. Thank you and thank you for the additional gift of homemade chocolate!

The first bag that you sent to me is on its way back to you courtesy of our local UPS Store. Again many thanks for all of your help.

Debbie

 

Billy,

The black leather 10-pocket bag arrived today (3/8/14) and is PERFECT! The leather quality is very satisfactory. I know from my experience with your 7-pocket smaller bag in black leather (purchased in winter 2011) that the bag will get more beautiful with use as a patina develops on the black leather. That was speedy shipping service: Wednesday order, Saturday delivery by USPS. Nice protective box, too, and a very fair shipping charge. Kudos.

If you have old records on file, it was most likely in 2006 or 2007 when I was having email and possibly phone correspondence with Billy on a previous design where I was not favorably impressed with the quality of the cowhide. Sources of materials change over the years and you likely keep looking for improved quality consistent with your costs and the selling price point. Would be interesting if you have records about this, and you clearly know the differences from your materials suppliers over the years

I was LHartmann@MPCProducts.com back then and did not have a home computer and gmail. That address is no longer valid, but you might find it in old records if you have them. Just a curiosity.

Some constructive feedback about features and "wear" issues. The four corners at the bottom of the bag take the wear. With the microfiber, some reasonable signs of wear begin to show after only a couple of trips--I am rather careful in my handling and don't knock the bag around unreasonably. This is a travel bag however, not my dress-up bag. I will be watching how the leather one wears. Whatever you can do in the design and mfgr to guard against this issue, that would be a plus.

I remain a fan of your products and will comment enthusiastically when other ladies inquire about the bag I'm carrying on future trips. It seems to happen on each trip. Glad to wave the flag for you and encourage ladies to make a direct contact rather than through Magellans or TravelSmith. Sincerely, Linda

 

I absolutely love it. It has room for EVERYTHING. The same pockets in the same places, but HUGE! Yet, not bulky. Oh, I just love it.

Barbara

 

love the bag...Karen

 

Just want to thank you for the quick service. Both items arrived in great shape. I talked to Gloria this morning and she was glad that I had ordered from you.

Lynda

 

Love your products and will check periodically for new items. Good luck!

Aloha,

Anita

 

Thank you, Billy. I still love my purse that my sister bought me and will be taking it with me to Mexico in January. I will look for other items of yours to purchase in the future.

Regards,

Laura

 

Hi.....

Just wanted to convey to you how impressed and happy I was to receive

my order so soon. [Ordered on the 26th November and received items on the 29th November]

I had ordered 2 black Roamers [h] and one red one. I am more than satisfied with your

product. My friend Anita, emailed me your website with the FREESHIP.

I will be ordering 3 more bags as I got 2 more friends interested in your products.

Thank you very much for this offer.

jean

 

Billy, you are wonderful. I will feature you in my upcoming new blog on customer service. I did receive your tele message last week as well. I am in no hurry.

Laura

 

They are beautiful! This pattern is so very popular now you should should

put them on your site as regulars. Thank you so much. Now I am thinking of the large backpack in this pattern. Plain black is so boring. What I like about this bag is that it would not be easy for a thief to walk off with.

It would stand out in a crowd. The extra bag I bought is going to my son's mother-in-law in Honduras. You might get some more business.

Thank you again.

 

Thank you very much. I was contacted very promptly and am waiting for a new purse in the mail.

Great service.

Marlee

 

I just wanted to thank you for the nice surprise of the Peanut Butter Fudge.

Diane

 

Hello folks,

My daughter is enjoying your fannypack...i.e., bumpack to be respectable here.

I have had one of your microfibre wallets with the ID window for some time, but would now like to get your DayMaker wallet w/diagonal Zipper in black leather. You have my visa card, but if you have disposed of it, I'll fax it to you. I don't know whether overseas counts for the free postage, but if it does, then I shall mention freeship.

Hope all goes well there. I have just started chemo to prolong my life a bit and am I...yet again...impressed with British medicine. The stuff that is in the U.S. press about it is just plain c**p.

Best wishes,

Rosamond

 

The zebra bag was a big hit with the relatives in FL.

-Nea

 

Thank you for sending the replacement microfiber bag organizer. Your prompt response was very much appreciated and I'm already using it!

Best wishes for success in all your endeavors.

Kuni

 

I just wanted you to know that I received the 7 pocket, larger day pack and really like it and thank you very much for handling the exchange.

-Lisa

 

Thank you for repairing my well used day packs! Since I use them every day, they have had a lot of use. As a retired "old" woman, I can't replace them as often as I'd like. It's a tribute to you that they have lasted so long. My new microfiber one is nice too, but I love the leather the best. My next contribution to Meals on Wheels and the American Red Cross will be in your honor. Thank you again.

 

My husband and I have used your microfiber wallets for several years (from Magellen's) and LOVE them. Matter of fact, I've worn mine out and just bought a leather replacement.

Are you aware that a small tube of lipstick fits perfectly into the small pocked in the end? I've not seen that mentioned in your ads, but that's where I keep my lipstick. Because of the compact style, I frequently go shopping with nothing other than my wallet and keys, thanks to you.

Just wanted to say "THANKS" for you innovative designs!

Jane, a happy customer

 

Thank you & I look forward to receiving the new purse. I will tell my friends---it is a great bag for traveling!

Alyson

 

Hello Billy,

Today I received my order! You wrote that this is the first order from Russia, so I decided to report it immediately. Parcel arrived very quickly - faster than usual, I did not expect :)

Bag-super! I am sure that she will now be with me in all of my travel and reliably protect my documents and bank cards. In the bag perfectly placed everything you need on the road and even my SLR camera! Thank you very much for good service and a quality product and very comfortable!!! With great pleasure I will recommend your products to their friends living in Russia!

Once again - THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!

With respect, Inna

 

LOVED THE VIDEOS! Looks just like me packing everything into my own DayMaker bags, only she's more organized than I am at doing it! She must have rehearsed! :) I might have put the deodorant and other little bottle (whatever it was) into the make-up or toiletries bag, but to each their own, we must all put things where we know we'll find them again when there's so much in one bigger bag. DayMakers makes my life on the go, whether traveling afar or just going about my day-to-day life, much easier!

Thanks from your customer,

Nat

 

Hi Billy,

Just watched your video and thought it was amazing and well put together! Will definitely keep some of those products in mind and will tell my friends and send the video on to them.

The larger daymaker I ordered a few weeks ago to replace my broken strap (wire sticking out) on my smaller bag, is just perfect and is a great size for my daily use and travels. You have a great product....if only the wires wouldn't pop out! Keep up the good job and much success with the video.

Barbara

 

Thank you for the update. I love your things, and will be buying more for gifts

Thank you again

Linda in Tucson

 

Good Afternoon

I would like to thank you for your 1st class service, I have purchased the bags from Australia and they have arrived within 10 days in perfect condition.

I will be telling all my friends about your bags as they do look first class, secure bags for travelling.

Many thanks again

Debbie

 

I love the quality of the current batch of black leather when I receive my 10-pocket bag next week. The design is very well appointed to keep things organized when traveling and the size is good for me. My memory is refreshed that you were, indeed, the person I exchanged emails with and actually talked with on one occasion back in 2006 or 2007 when I first discovered DayMakers. Nice to be in contact with you again. I will provide feedback when I receive my leather bag. Have a great day and coming weekend in sunny Santa Barbara! Linda

 

I just received the citystrap in black leather. It looks great and is made exceptionally well. Worth the price. Thank you.

GEORGE

 

Dear Billy,

just got the shipping notification for the new bag! can hardly wait to get it! thanks for getting it out early. I hope it works out to be the right size. Other than that, I know I'll love it!!! Thanks so much!

Maretta

 

Dear Billy,

The post office kept me on pins and needles! They misrouted my bag to Nebraska so it took 3 extra days to get here! But it finally arrived and I'm thrilled to have an intelligently designed daymakers bag again! The extra size you added to it is just enough I think for my daily use so I'm very excited. Looking forward to starting my day in an hour and taking it with me! thank you soooo much!!!!!

Maretta

 

Mr. Norris,

My Be-Safe-Bag arrived via USPS yesterday and I just want to let you know that it exceeds my expectations. It's beautifully made and I love all the compartments. Thanks for getting the bag to me earlier than promised.

Sincerely,

JoAnn

 

This is my 3rd bag, they are fabulous! This time I asked Billy to remove the buckle, as well as shortening the shoulder strap. It's perfect for me now!! I can't live without this purse. It holds my water bottle, iPad and everything else I carry.

I always tell my friends how I love my DayMakers bags!

Karen

 

Leslee in New Orleans rec'd her gift on Sat. and was VERY pleased. Thanks to you and staff for sending it soooo quickly.

 

My friend Billy Norris started selling his handmade bags years ago at crafts fares. Now he has his own company, and he sells his products the world over. He makes beautiful handbags, travel bags, backpacks, fanny packs, brief bags, wallets, camera bags, contour and straight expansion straps, and other accessories. He makes them in leather, also in high-quality microfiber, and a few in ballistic nylon. These well-thought-out products are full of super-security features (great for international travel), have dozens of pockets and compartments, are wonderfully constructed out of fine materials, and are not expensive at all. Now, Billy is having a sale. If you are interested in a high quality product at a great reduced price, check out Billy's web site: http://www.daymakers.com/index.asp

Barbara

 

I received my bag today and love it!!! Thank you and thanks to Liz who was so helpful!!!

 

I got the new modified purses. They're beautiful. I love them. Thank you for all your work on them. I'm sure my friend, Sally Ross, will love hers to. Will give it to her tonight.

Best regards,

Maureen

 

Thank you! What fabulous customer service!

I wore the bag on a recent trip to Italy, was surrounded by a gang of pickpockets on the metro in Rome, but they didn't get anything from me except a forceful push off the train because of the anti-theft features of this bag. They couldn't budge the zipper or find the belt latch, though they tried. I'm going to Greece in a few weeks and this bag will be with me. Safety features are worth the bit of extra weight.

This bag foiled a pickpocket!!!!

Liz, the travel wallet work really well. I haven't given much thought to anybody trying to take it. It gave me a level of security while I'm traipsing around the country side, and the airport was a breeze. Really wanna say thank you for such a great product. See you guys soon!

Dear Liz,

I’ve been a devoted Daymakers bag user for more years than I can count and have four or five different designs that I rotate between depending on whether I’m at home or traveling and what I need to carry with me. I started out with the microfiber organizer bag, instantly fell in love with it and eventually moved on to the leather version, which I now prefer. The leather is very high quality and hardly shows any wear, even though I carry my bag every day. You can’t beat all of the Daymakers designs for organization, ease of use, durability and price for what you get. (Don’t forget to check out the red-tag specials, there are great bargains to be found there!) Your biggest problem will be which design to select or that you’ll want to buy them all! I don’t even need other bags anymore, I’ve found my handbag solution in Daymakers bags.

Santa Fe, New Mexico

THANK YOU for making the beautiful City Strap! I just bought one and I'm truly delighted to find such a nicely made product at a reasonable price. It's a joy to use my briefcase now, and it's comfortable to carry, regardless of how much heavy stuff I have to carry. I really am happy to have discovered your product, and I'm grateful that you put such care into developing this thoughtful product.
THANKS again Daymakers!!

A customer wrote this to a friend and sent us a copy:
Hi Helen,
We are back home, and I want to tell you about the DayMakers purse. It was just wonderful!! My daily 'load' in it was 2 cameras (sans cases), cell phone, small wallet. The outer pockets held comb, lipstick, mirror, tissues, passport, maps, and other misc. It wasn't heavy at all, and the shape of it conforms to the contours of the body. It was great! I am thinking about getting the 7 or 9-pocket one for everyday use.

To introduce myself: I'm the resident correspondent for the Economist Intelligence Unit (London) for Tunisia (North Africa).
My wife recently gave me your large Silo HipSafe pack in brown cloth, which she bought from 'TravelSmith' in Novato, California. I write to say that I'm enthusiastic about it, almost big enough for an overnight trip and seemingly secure, with all sorts of pockets to organize myself! Yesterday two French tourists touring Roman ruins here bemoaned the loss of an ordinary pack which was opened in the crowd in the bazaar in Sousse, south of Tunis, when the light-fingered pickpocket made off with money, credit cards, and passports, virtually ruining their holiday. Needless to say, they were very taken with the HipSafe.
Looking forward to hearing from you,
Best wishes and congratulations on your enterprise!

Dear Billy:
I think your products are terrific! They are head and shoulders above what I have seen in various travel stores in the Northeastern Ohio area and on the Net.
I think there is a large marketplace out there for your bags. I sure am a GREATLY satisfied customer!
Sincerely,
Connie S.

Dear Great Travel Bag Makers --- I bought your black original bag a few years ago and it has been exactly what I have needed traveling and working on the line of control Kashmir-Ladakh and Northern India. I have used it everyday for 6 years.
Here's a great story about this bag:
I was traveling in Indonesia, by boat, the ferry, from Kallimantan to Paupua. After boarding there is a long narrow metal stair to the upper deck. The island boys are famous for stealing bags and money inside bags on that stairway. They get behind the person, there is no room to move packed in with many people, and just have a free for all robbing whatever and whoever.I put my bag on as a backpack, hooked and clipped the flap down over the entrance to the inside of the bag before I boarded, then on the stairs I could feel little fingers trying to get in!! I just turned around, laughed at them and said, "Go ahead, you'll never get in!!" Really had fun!! They could not figure out how to steal out of your great safe bag!! Totally locked and secure. I spent a couple of days with them telling stories, sleeping on the deck, traveling past uninhabited magnificent islands like green emeralds in a deep blue sea and having a marvelous time learning the ins and outs of robbery and what to watch out for!! Anyway, I need another bag.
Dr. Constance B.

Hi Billy - I'm so glad I found you on the web - I've purchased two of your bags from a local luggage store and am a convert for life! All the right pockets, in all the right places! I travel a lot for my work, and was initially attracted to your bag for the security straps and its light weight, but then fell in love with the small bag on the cord for my money - I never worry about theft, the velcro closure for the phone pocket - my phone no longer escapes, and the inside cord that I use for my keys. The depth of the bag also allows me to easily carry a water bottle and book. I read your profile on your site, and am betting your sisters have been a great resource in perfecting your design. :)
Thanks again for sending my order so quickly - we got in time for our big move to Europe.
Cheers!
Loy

Wow! You are terrific! This is the BEST bag I have ever used. I really never switch to another bag, because this one just keeps me so organized. Other bags don't have enough pockets and slots, and forget those one "deep well" bags with no pockets! I hate when everything gets thrown in and sinks to the bottom. And I love the strap that NEVER falls off my shoulder!
One other terrific feature is the little coin purse with the extra clip on the other end through the loop. I can put important keys on that clip and pull it out while the coin purse stays in the pocket. Ingenious!
Thank you sooooo much!
Mary C.

Dear Billy Norris,
My daughter Diana said she called you and you could put a new strap on it for me?! I will be totally lost without it while you have it. I absolutely love the purse and use it everyday!! I'm so spoiled now, I've gotten rid of most all my other purses.
Thank you,
Carol G.

Hi Billy,
Thank you for the bag! I love the design and have used it all over the world. It is the best bag I have ever had.
Thanks,

Thanks for your help. The 10 Pocket Traveler is a wonderful purse, as is the smaller U-shape ShoulderSafe that I also got. These are the only ones I feel safe with when traveling. Thieves may drag me to the ground but they won't get my purse!
Sincerely,
Kate

Dear Billy,
Received the ShoulderSafe 2 days after I ordered it. Thanks, I just love it, only trouble - I can't find enough "stuff" to fill it - its huge!
Thanks again,
Lois

Hi, Billy.
Thank you for the super-speedy shipment of the small microfiber satchel. I love it!
The steel cables are a bonus, but security wasn't my main concern in choosing this bag. I really just thought that the size and the organization features would make the small satchel an ideal everyday general utility purse. That's exactly what it is proving to be.
Other bag designers might understand that we need to put things into bags and wallets. But you understand that we also need to take things out and put them back in -- sometimes one-handed -- without rummaging around, without spilling anything, and without exposing our belongings to other peoples' eyes. We want to get all the way into a bag or wallet, and a zipper that goes beyond the corner allows that. We want to see what's in the bag, and a light-colored lining makes that possible. We want flexibility, and oversized pleated linings give us that. You really understand these longings. Thank you for caring so much about the ways that real people actually use (and want to use) bags.
Best wishes for much success with your excellent products.

Hello Billy,
Was shopping in Santa Barbara last Friday, and I picked up a CL5116B, Vertical shoulder bag. I have been looking (in NY, London, Zurich!!!) for a bag like this, and yours is PERFECT.
Thanks,
Sincerely,
Jason

I love my DayMakers purse -- I've taken it from an African safari to around town in Washington DC. Though I bought it for travel, I started using it around home and found I liked to make it my only handbag.
Warm Regards,
Sue M.
