I found this to be great when traveling or just when you don't want to carry a big purse. You need your hands free such at an amusement park or just in general shopping. Plus I think it would be perfect on my next cruise because I can carry my passport, money, cards and driver's license all in one. Its light weight and easy to carry. It has nice pockets with zippers or velcro. I received at a discount or free for my unbiased review.
