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! :-)

This is a lovely bag. The leather is high quality. The interior lining is fun without being overly bright or in your face. It can hold a decent amount but it certainly will not be good for a work bag if you have files etc. But for running errands, tooling around town etc, it holds what I need (wallet, keys, lip balm, iPad, small reusable shopping bad, and a compact umbrella. The color is such that it can work with black or brown based outfits. It is a casual bag that tucks nicely under the arm for every day use. The small outer unzipped pocket is perfect for items you want to be readily available such as lip balm or keys or tissues. The outer zipped pocket is good for securing items you want easy access to but a bit more security.The top zipper zips all the way across but at either end it isn't anchored to the bad so if you are somewhere with really great pick pockets - like Barcelona's airport- be careful how you arrange your items. There is one interior zip pocket that makes this less of an issue, and it easily fits your wallet, cell, etc. There are a couple of non-zip interior pockets for organization that are very functional.

I admit I thought it seemed smaller than I had envisioned, but does fit everything. The quality is top line Hobo! Love this bag. Hobo is my favorite! Love the write up about the Designer! I have a Hobo Wallet I have been using for about 6 years...and I still get compliments on it!

This is my first Hobo and overall I'm pleased. It's a perfect size, I think. I'm a big Coach fan, but find them to usually be quite heavy to lug around. This purse is not like that at all! It's quite roomy for lots of stuff, but still has a sleek and light appearance and feel. It opens wide to see all the content and not so deep that you have to dig around for things. I got the mint color, which is quite a departure for me I'm not big on buying purses in off colors b/c I like for them to blend with most outfits, particularly when they are this expensive. But I'm getting used to it and the color is very pretty. The purse fits nicely over the shoulder and is also easy to carry by the long slim handles which are great. The leather is soft and luxurious. The bottom is not firm or reinforced, so it sags a little when picked up, but it stays upright when set down on a flat surface. If you watch the video, there's a little slot on the outer back that works great for a work badge or to tuck a credit card because it's convenient to grab but safely tucked away also. May sound like a dumb thing to comment on, but I need an access badge for work and never having to dig for it in my purse is a big plus! Nice purchase.

I love hobo bags. I like this one. It's smaller than I pictured. But fits my stuff. It just seems small for the price.
