We bought this bag at Deseret before my daughter left for her mission in Ohio. Within a few weeks in the field, she was begging for another one. This bag was uncomfortable to wear all day, and did not have enough space for a sister missionary using this 24/7. We ended up getting her the Otiwaa sister bag, and she loves it! Unfortunately, that company, which was owned by an LDS member, is out of business due to family emergencies. But, due to my daughter not liking this bag, I would not recommend for future missionaries. It might work well for just everyday use, or as a cute purse, but is not good for missionaries!
Recently a non-LDS/member 27 year old niece of mine was visiting and helping me rearrange. SHE "TOTALLY flipped" at finding out that the purple bag she'd ABSOLUTELY fell-head-over-heels for was ACTUALLY designed for, & sold as, a missionary tote that's sold through a church bookstore!! Suddenly she got a sad/disappointed look on her face...that is UNTIL I informed her that it WASN'T a "requirement" to become a member NOR missionary to buy one! Now she desperately WANTS ONE, & IN purple just like mine that's showing nearly no signs of wear after 1-2 years of use AT LEAST each Sabbath day when I carry out to church w/me & many, many other times & for various occasions as well. It's SO "WELL designed", with LOTS of seperate spaces/areas for TONS of items to be neatly held & stay in their place(s) so that your cold bottle(s) of water/drinks (ect) DON'T "sweat" onto your scriptures/books/ECT and possibly damage them!! The crossbody design "AND shape" are EXTREMELY helpful & VERY comfortable even with my having severe damage & painful issues w/my entire spine! EVEN WHEN I've had this EXTRA LARGE beautiful bag fairly loaded & heavy to lift -it's STILL easily carried because of the AWESOMELY crossbody shape & design! (NOT simply a "crossbody length strap", like MOST OTHER types of so-called crossbodies -INCLUDING most high/OVERLY priced namebrand!)
HOWEVER, the last I checked the PURPLE color wasn't available. I'm hoping that IT "IS", OR "WILL BE AGAIN" very SOON!
The purple is a VERY NICE, NOT "OVERLY" bright TRUE fairly deep PURPLE that's THE PERFECT PURPLE ("2 & 4 ME" anyways)!! It ALSO seems to be VERY dirt resistant -seemingly due to the fabric "quality", as well as POSSIBLY also the "color"!! YOU CAN'T GO WRONG WITH THIS BAG!!
I'd even highly suggest it for "MANY OTHER uses" ALSO...like possibly a baby/diaper bag, overnight bag, EXTRA roomy carry-on &/or vacationing bag, ANYTIME you'd want an EASY to carry & NICE LOOKING "hands-free"/"hold-it-all"/"load-it-up" bag!!
The crossbody design is a MUCH MORE SAFE type of bag to carry since it's NOT as easily "grabbed &/or snatched" -PLUS whenever YOU MOVE, IT DOESN'T fall off of/slide down your shoulder OR "bang around" whatsoever. It STAYS comfortably "in place"!
CAN'T TYPE ENOUGH "GREAT THINGS" ABOUT THIS AWESOME BAG, & just HOW VERY MUCH I enjoy comfortably using it for/in "MANY, MANY" various ways & occasions...OBVIOUSLY! (It was recently WONDERFUL for walking around Nauvoo,IL this summer & visiting all of the MANY GREAT historical sites and shops (& many good restaurants too) ...WHILE "loading it up" on pamphlets, info, souvineers, & such, while ALSO carrying my snacks/lunch/cool water bottles/mosquitoe spray/sunscreen /wallet/notepad & pen /plus extra room "comfortably" left over & EASILY comfortably carried WHILE looking GREAT & NOT being-in-the-way WHATSOEVER!)
I bought this bag for my daughter who is going on a mission soon. I think I am going to have to get me one too. I keep threatening her that if she leaves it unattended it is going to become mine. It does not look like it, but it is big enough to comfortably hold my Ipad Pro (12.9 big one) PLUS a set of scriptures. I am really impressed with all the little organization pockets. Its a neat bag, I am impressed.
I use the purple Lucy missionary bag as my church bag and I love it. It is well built and has pockets for everything. It makes it really easy to stay organized. I love that it is a cross body bag as I can wear it multiple ways. I have been using mine now for over a year and it still looks new. Besides being functional, it is adorable and I am constantly getting compliments on it. I love that the interior is a different color - on the purple bag, the interior is yellow and it is a fun pop of color.
