I normally buy, and use, much larger bags, but needed a very small one to comply with new restrictions on carry-ins at our ballpark, with a bag not to exceed 9x5x2 inches. I wanted something with at least a shoulder strap. This bag fills the bill easily. It's cute, fits the essentials, frees up my hands, and is inexpensive enough that I don't mind if it gets covered with peanut shells. I also like the inner and outer pockets, which let me keep some things separate. Great fit for the current requirements.
