All leather wristlet with the metal baseball button. The chain can accommodate Keys and is also a very study handle / strap. I think you could use the chain for self-defense by grabbing the purse and let the attacker examine the chain up close. There are two zippered compartments, one with a dozen card slots and the other with 3 or 4 larger pockets for cash or whatever. Just the right size to carry alone or stash in your bag.
