PursePlus Touch – For the Woman on the Go

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).

  1. Hm..Interesting new contest form. In a way, I like the design, the ease of entry, but I don’t like that I can’t edit just in case I did a boo boo.

    • Thanks for the input. I decided to try it on a couple of giveaways but I”m not sure about it yet. What’s your fave – comments, Rafflecopter, or this PromoSimple?

    • This one is all right, but we have yet to see any flaws in it. I have entered another giveaway that uses this form. Rafflecopter is still my choice for my own giveaways. I guess I do like being able to edit, because I do make mistakes from time to time. There is also Giveaway Tools, which is another new one. I have used this one on other giveaways, and it’s all right too. I like how it makes sure you click a link before it will let you enter it. As for PromoSimple, it is easy to enter, and has a nice look to it, too.

      • I was surprised to see some enter the one on PromoSimple that did not enter others that required a comment on the blog itself. I guess there are several factors to be weighed. I’ll have to look into the Giveaway Tools but I may stick with Rafflecopter for a while as bugs are worked out – it’s so easy!
