I want to give this purse 5 stars, BUT..... the zipper for the main compartment is the only metal zipper on this purse and has been hard to use since day one. At first, I liked that the zipper made it hard to open the purse..thieves can't pick pocket without me feeling it. However, the zipper has come apart and no matter what I try, I can't get it to close, making this purse unusable. Now I have to find a place that will do zipper replacements on my own dime.I haven't had this purse a year yet! This is the only purse that I have EVER had this happen to, and it is a shame, because it really is a great bag and I've gotten so many compliments on it. MKF, PLEASE change to a different zipper!
