This is one of my all-time favorite Hobo International pieces, and I have a collection of 100 or so Hobo handbags, clutches, wallets, etc. When Friar arrived, it was smaller than expected -- I had hoped to use it as a purse/light briefcase (wanted it to hold a few letter-sized folders and paperwork). The glimmer of disappointment in its size was quickly replaced with elation; smaller than what I usually carry, it's surprisingly difficult to over-stuff but carries everything I need, and with all the uber-functional pockets, the contents are neatly kept separately so that Friar retains its sleekness. The stone vintage leather is rich and oh so soft, and the bag wears well on the shoulder or in the crook of your arm. Really, Friar is just a spectacular bag -- one of the best Hobos I've seen in years! You've got to get yourself one, but not until I get another in a different color! :-)

I have a couple of Hobo bags that are smooth leather with a very structured silhouette. This one is weathered and soft, and not at all structured. After five days of use, it looks old and beat up. Not happy with it at all.

Love this purse! The leather is soft and supple. The red color is beautiful, bright, and true. And the style is functional and beautiful. I wish the strap was a tiny bit longer to make it just that much more convenient for getting over my shoulder, but it's not bad.

I agree with Sherry's review. Unlike other Hobo bags, this bag has no structure to it, and looks pretty weathered out of the box. It that is the look you're going for, then this would be a great bag. It's a nice size and it has a good number of well-placed pockets (inside and out).

Love this purse! I have read some reviews saying this purse is smaller than expected I want to say this is exactly the perfect sized purse not too big or small it can hold an iPad and still have room for a large wallet and more. Definitely not as big as a tote. Just a nice size purse. Very soft attractive and stylish. I have the snake skin looking one because I am tired of black. It's worth every penny in any color.

I love the style of the bag. The black color is the best. The bag is very smart. I am using this bag. I got this bag as a gift for my birthday.

I had high hopes because this bag fulfills my laundry list of features flat straps (not rolled), long enough drop to wear on the shoulder, but not too long to wear on the elbow. Interior and exterior pockets. I didn't like how skinny the straps are and how they attach to the bag. My friend said, "The straps make it go a little bit Sophia Petrillo." There's something "old lady" about them. Also, there's no hardware to speak of. It's missing any kind of flair or style. Maybe that's why it looks mumsy. The lack of structure in the bottom is also an issue. One saggy bottom is enough for me.
