My wife had great luck here. We were not sure wether to go or not given some otehr forum mixed reviews but we decided to try ti. We took the bus from Florence which leave just around 9am I think arriving at the mall at about 10 minutes before 10am. The ride is nice and very reasonable.
The bags are not this year's models but my wife really had no problem choosing. We stayed at the Mall until the firts bus went back to Florence at about 1230. We didnt have a hard time killing time at all.
For strategy... the shop will hold yoru selections for a few hours. They also restock the shelves throughout the day. My wife grabbed several items she liked and had them hold them, once we had seen all of the other outlets we went back and paid for the ones she liked. There were some that were restocked later in the morning that were not there at opening.
If you need a Gucci bag and it doesnt have to be this year's then the outlet will be a good stop.
