UO is without a doubt one of my favorite stores. There's only one where I live, and I don't get to go there too often, but I shop on their website a lot - more items, and much more clearance than the store has (because let's face it, their prices are a bit high)

urban generally has decent stuff at decent prices...no exorbitant prices on their pieces...quality's pretty good

^ I work @ UO,
and imo, that bag is rather cheap looking IRL..
It also falls apart quite easily..
Many returns..
Sorry, hope this helps, though..

I have that bag and the long strap is super convenient while I'm running around the city but the snap that holds it together doesn't hold very well so it's constantly busting open. I don't know what I should do. I was thinking of maybe replacing the snap or putting a zipper in but I don't know if it's possible to that.

Also, FYI the front pocket does not open.

when is this?! I only buy from UO if it's $20 or less, with the exceptions of some purchases that I've ended up regretting.

I think that it's not all the time, just when they're sitting on a lot of sale merch that isn't selling well at the current markdown. Also I believe when it does occur, it isn't necessarily company wide. I know one of my friends who was a District Manager for Anthro(same company, so I am guessing similar strategies), said that when a store does that, they just don't sell their sale stuff as well as another.

yes. it is very random. it actually ticks me off sometimes. especially how sometime they only choose one gender.

it does open. it's just a bit tricky to do it. not a very good design, functionally.
