I tested this Carrier’s Conquest Bag and this one loves up to it’s name! Christine always includes lots of pockets, but this bag has so many pockets that you can carry a ton! Christine’s signature phone pocket is included and 2 large zippered pockets, with more pockets inside of one of the pockets. Inside the bag is room for other items, including a pocket to hold your wallet! That is so amazing and handy to have a designated pocket for your wallet so you don’t have to rummage around in your bag to find it. Such a stylish bag as well. I love using mine. Always excellent instructions in any ChrisW Design bag!
