The bag has a leather handle and trim around bottom and front flap. The changing pad is secured in a rear zippered pocket of the bag. The top of the bag is secured by means of a flap with a magnetic snap fastener. The bag is designed to be carried over the shoulder by means of an adjustable, permanently attached shoulder strap. Your sample is being returned as requested.
