Was there a weight limit I should of known?

This bag is amazing for all the details that let me carry around a bunch of stuff that I probably don’t need but like to have with me. Lots of pockets and the key loop is the best. It holds so much more than one would think. The only thing- and it’s probably a fluke b/c I have other bags from this brand that have taken a significant beating- the only thing is that the cross body strap broke on me after only a week of use. It’s not something that I can fix myself- it’s the bit attached to bag that the strap clips to- I did have it loaded up with more things then I usually carry b/c I was traveling- but it snapped right off as I put it on.

Best travel bag

I discovered this commuter bag in a different pattern on a silent auction site. I decided to look up Maika online. I bought this version (pattern) with the purpose in mind of it being my go-to bag for trips in the RV. It’ll hold the additional items I need to bring (bought the matching medium pouch for makeup) as well as my chihuahua’s essentials when he accompanies me. It holds A LOT. It’s beautiful and seems durable, not that it’ll get beat up. It’ll just be carrying “stuff” as needed. I told a friend and she bought the tote. Love the vegan leather. Price is great. These bags are addictive!

I wanted a computer case that was modern & stylish and THIS ONE IS PERFECT!
So many compliments on it & the shape is more functional, in my opinion, than a typical briefcase/computer bag. Love it!!!

New Maika Bag

I have been looking for a new work bag for quite awhile when I stumbled across Maika bags. I love that it is lightweight and a crossbody. I also like the pockets to be able to organize. My only wish is that it were just a bit bigger. I have a 15 in laptop and cannot fit it in.
