I bought the Jonnie with Studs in Blanco (which Zappos doesn't have anymore, but it's the same bag as this one that Zappos carries, just with added studs). I wanted to review it here since I know so many of us check Zappos reviews. The Jonnie is a GREAT handbag! I am a big Coach fan, but I may have found my new HG brand! The leather feels like butter. The style is fabulous (classy and fun and a little funky all at once). I can wear it when I'm dressed up for work or when I'm dressed down for kids ball games, etc. The interior is well organized AND has a key clip! Yay! The front pocket is great. You can slide your keys or phone or other small items into it without unzipping it, or you can unzip the sides for greater access. This bag is the right amount of slouchy without being droopy. It's easy to get into and find your things. I'm afraid I may have to get this bag in another color, also. :) Luv it!

Love This Crossbody! Designers are finally getting the message that not all crossbody bags should be shaped like a square! This is a small satchel/crossbody and I love how you can carry it either with the top handles or the long strap. The front pocket has a magnetic snap, and is big enough to hold your keys, or whatever fast grab items you have. The zippers on either side of it secure the pocket so it cannot open by itself, or they form their own flat pocket where you could put your cell. The bag itself holds my sunglass case, wallet, lotion, mints, some room to spare. The leather is top quality too. There is nothing bad to say about this bag, except lots of money for a small amount of leather. If budget is not an issue, I highly recommend.

I love this bag! I'm absolutely in love with the feel of the leather, how well it weathers water, and the color is what grabbed me in the first place. The straps are a little too short to wear this as a shoulder bag with comfort, but that hasn't stopped me. It is huge! It would probably hold three of my standard shoulder bags. I don't carry a lot most of the time, but it's held everything I've asked it to, including books, notebooks, and a large bottle of Pellegrino. Other than the straps, I'm happy as a clam.

I loved the look and feel of this bag, and it was the perfect size. But the zippers were all sticky. For the price I knew I couldn't live with sticking zippers so I had to return it. Ended up finding a Perlina bag I loved instead. But the next time I am in the market for a handbag I might try Kooba again, it really was a good looking and lux feeling bag. The zippers may just have been a one-off.

Nice roomy handbag for those who carry a lot of items...I have a handbag organizer, so I can see just about EVERYTHING! Nice quality leather bag.

Love this bag! The leather is so soft and beautiful. It is perfect size for my needs, to be able to put my iPad in it along with all my other must haves. Front pocket is great for cell phone, keys, and lip stick. I have happy with this purchase!

This bag is a great small/medium size. I need a larger bag for my day to day essentials, so this is for those times when I want to carry a smaller bag (although it is roomy enough for a small wallet, iPhone, two cases for glasses and some cosmetics). I initially ordered the ginger color, which was a little too orange for me, and re-ordered the black, which worked perfect. Would definitely recommend.

I have never bought a handbag so expensive as this one but I love it. The color is gorgeous with space enough for everything but the kitchen sink. It goes with just about everything except red. The zippers stick a bit but a little soap took care of that. Definitely a winner!

I actually purchased this bag from the Kooba website. It was a final sale, so I can't return it. I am extremely disappointed in the quality. It is very cheap looking and feeling. Do not waste your money! I only wish I had purchased from this website so that I could return it. I might as well have thrown the money away.

I love this bag. It is the perfect size for an iPad and book, wallet and makeup case but not so big that I stuff everything I own into it. The front pocket is sort of strange, deeply cut you would think it would not hold much of anything but it is ideal for sunglasses checkbook and cellphone. Another reviewer commented that the accent metals (it has a plethora of studs and zippers.) were different colors. My teal handbag, which is a lovely color, has gunmetal colored accent metals except for the Kooba logo plate which is silvertone. I really like the adjustable length strap, which has a very nice shoulder piece which keeps the double straps together and adds a touch of class. I would buy another in a different color if I had not fallen in love with a lovely multicolor handbag that I am in lust with.

I just received my bag and I am in love. I have been waiting to find Jonnie bag in light grey forever and I was so happy to see it on Zappos (finally) and was able to snatch the only one in stock. The Jonnie bag is a great size, great style with high quality leather. I recommend this bag to all Kooba lovers. Thank you Zappos!

This is my second review of this bag. I felt that I had to mention my total satisfaction with this bag just one more time, as I just received my second Johnnie in the mail today. This time, the color is Ginger, and it is exactly the color as pictured. I got it at a ridiculous sale price, paid no shipping, and it was delivered by Zappos the very next day! How can you say anything bad about that? I truly believe that Kooba is getting better and better.

I bought this purse for my Sister (as a Christmas present) she loved it. It was so soft, she just loves to throw things in her bag and go, so it was also so accommodating for her. She said she had never had a better bag that fits all her things before. She used to fumble in her purse - now she finds everything easily.

I have been a Kooba owner since 2006 when their classic leather bags were over the top. They had declined in quality a few years ago, especially sadly missed was their beautiful ultrasuede lining. I think they have made a comeback with respect to quality even though their lining is just run-of-the-mill cotton. Still, if you can get a Kooba on sale, it would be very much worth it. I bought a navy Johnnie a month ago, and it is a beautiful bag for the sale price. Would I buy a Kooba again? Most definitely "yes". I got exactly what I paid for and envisioned.

Finally, the perfect crossbody bag...not too big, not too small. Love the pouch in front for easy access to phone and glasses, no zipper problems with mine. Quality leather...soft and supple. Purchased the navy, nice neutral color for a change. Can't wait for spring colors to purchase another! Highly recommend!

I had to have this handbag in spite of low ratings! I am very careful with my handbags and had sprayed this one with a protective shield. Only after a few weeks, the top flap was showing wear around the edges and a split in the leather on the side appeared. It looks to me like very poor leather fusing.

I bought this bag 3 months ago and am very disappointed with the quality. I debated spending this much but I wanted a large navy bag and the reviews were favorable. Pros: I like the style and it is a very roomy bag. Cons: The color is lighter than shown and not what I would call a true navy. The straps have "discolored" in that it looks like the color is coming off and the lining has split. The bag is really poor quality and not what I would expect for a expensive bag.

I love the structure of the bag. It is very well appointed w. the appropriate number of pouches, nooks and crannies. Love the crossbody option. I bought it in black and felt the leather was a bit dry. I mink oiled it and it looks beautiful. Don't know if the dryness was inherent in all of the bags, or just mine. I'm very happy.

I stalked this bag on various websites, including auction sites, for weeks but couldn't find it for under my budget (it retails for more). When I found that the Zappos had dropped to half the retail, I snapped it up. I couldn't be happier with it! The leather is soft, the bag is huge and roomy without looking like a duffel bag, and the straps fit snugly on my shoulder. My only complaint is that the stock photo--which I've viewed on several different devices--is consistently a little brighter and more teal (= has more green in it) than the actual bag. I still love it, but I would be thrilled if the color were just a little brighter. This is my second Kooba bag. I purchased the first 2.5 years ago, and it was the best purse I've ever had. It only just started showing signs of wear, and I will still use it periodically. Zappos wins again: besides offering the best price, they shipped it free overnight with my VIP status. Made my day to get it so quickly!
