The past year or so I’ve gotten used to using a wristlet when I didn’t feel like fiddling with a bulky, heavy purse. The one downside with the one I had was that every time I needed to look at or use my phone, I had to unlatch and slide it in and out. The PursePlus Touch resolves that issue by allowing you to access your touchscreen right through the clear, outer window.
The PursePlus Touch comes with a short strap to use as a wristlet or to strap to another purse and a longer strap to use over the crossbody. The construction is solid and the fabric feels durable. There are pockets inside the zippered area for miscellaneous must-haves but I chose to put a small wallet there instead so I didn’t have to fuss with where to put bills and coins. The outer area secured by velcro is great for keys, sanitizer, and anything else you might need but that isn’t too small (otherwise it will fall out the gaps on the sides). I was a bit concerned that my phone would just slide out but it sits in the designated compartment pretty snuggly for regular, everyday use.
Now the real test: could I actually use my iPhone without physically removing it from the pocket? The answer is yes. I found that I did have to touch the screen a bit more firmly but it did respond well when doing that. This saves one extra step when trying to check a text while otherwise multitasking.
While the purse is a bit small for me for everyday use, I think it’s fabulous for day trips and errands. I also love that there are a ton of fabrics and patterns to choose from all for $15.99 (the MLB line goes for $19.99).
