I bought this because I need both hands free to wrangle my two little girls and I hate backpacks. It's much roomier than I thought, and has two separate main compartments so I'm able to keep my own stuff separate from the kid's stuff. The zippers run the whole length of the bag making it really easy to find stuff. There's a lot of complaints about the little pockets being too little to be useful, but I've found them to be really handy for stuff like bandaids and sunscreen sticks that would otherwise get swallowed up in a large pocket. The rope strap design disperses the weight on your shoulder and makes this really comfortable to carry. This bag is so much better than carrying a purse or a diaper bag or god forbid both. It fits my current casual-Birkinstock-mom aesthetic, too.

Love the bag! The strap really only works if you wear your purse over your neck and on the left side. Not too big but lots of carrying capacity!

Comfortable, sturdy material, stays close to body when walking. I had ample space to pack for days trips without being bulky or overstuffed. Design made it easy to access items inside without having to rummage around or unload to find what you need. Also appreciated the zippered inner pouch for small items, ID, money, etc. Don't have a smart phone so not sure about that fit into the outside zippered pouches.

Love this wallet. I always struggle finding a wallet with enough credit card slots, I need at least 10, and it also is big enough to hold my receipt/coupon stash. One thing I wish it had was a small zippered coin purse on the outside.

I'm a "buy a cheap purse every 3 months" kind of girl. I have two kids 2 and under and it's always a struggle finding a purse that can accommodate carrying a kid on a hip and holding the hand of another. This back pack style is great for my purse because it doesn't fall off my shoulder or get in the way while hip holding a child. Cons: -You cannot put anything really thick in the right side zipper pouch or it interferes with the main left pouch. -Outer storage pockets are basically useless. My iPhone does not fit in the "cellphone" pocket. Ideal for a smaller phone, maybe a Blackberry, but I don't think those are very common these days. The lower zippered storage pocket does not open very wide so even 3 chopsticks barely fit and cannot retrieve them very easily. I love this bag for the pure comfort of using it with kids and that wins over the Cons.

First of all, this skirt is pretty thin, so think beach outfits. Secondly, it is too short in the front. I like my knees covered. Plus, it fits larger than it should.

This is my second Kavu bag and I'm starting to love this brand! Great size to sit on a hip, it can fit my DSLR camera snuggly along with my other items. It has so many pockets to separate keys, phone, wallet, and personal items. My dark wash jeans have rubbed onto the material a bit, but I guess that's inevitable, and it's on the back side so it's not visible when wearing it. Overall a great bag, everyone loves the print!

Time to be smart about money and realize the true sources of common commercial products. I am completely changing after learning about real commercial/industrial agriculture and intense farming practices = no more leather or animal products of any kind. Done with the cost and even more done with the industrial use and inhumane animal treatment/processing. I do not want any part of it. I bought the flamingo pattern purse = adorable; goes with all my spring/summer/fall attire. Easy, fun, cheap and smart product line! Thank you Kavu! Thank you Zappos for your fast delivery to overseas locations!

Nice wallet for multi-purpose use. I paired my charcoal item with a charcoal Baggallini: Wander Bag. A perfect match in size and color. Love Zappos for customer service.

I like this bag. I use it as a small baby bag for short errands. I can fit a bottle, sippy cup, three diapers, half pack of wipes, and a bottle of water. Additionally, I could probably fit two small toys and my wallet. There are also two pockets on the front. One with a Velcro closure and the other a zipper. This is nice on public transit, as I can quickly slide the bag to my front, and get my Clipper card out of the Velcro pocket. It's also small enough that I can keep it on my front while on the bus or train, were I concerned about pickpockets. My iPhone 6 doesn't fit in either front pocket. Although both front pockets are large enough to fit a 4th generation iPod Touch. The larger compartment body will fit an iPad, not a laptop. I wish this bag fit me better. I wear a 40D bra. I wear the strap above my chest, instead of the middle. If I wear it across the middle, it pushes my boobs into a weird position, making them look awkward. It fits my husband fine. The strap is adjustable. For most people this bag will fit comfortably across the chest. I'm just larger. Because I wear it above my chest, it sometimes rides up and rubs my neck. This doesn't happen often, and can be remedied by tightening the strap. Overall, this small bag is very good. I wish it were slightly larger. In addition to the items I listed above, I wish I could fit a spare change of kid clothes or a large canvas shopping bag. But I can't if I have all the other stuff too. This bag is unisex. It's an excellent, sporty option for a man-bag or a women's purse. It has compartments of varying sizes that make for easy organization. Another review for these "rope" bags said something about them being for people who are left-handed. This isn't true. Anyone can wear it. It is made to have the bulbous part hang from the strap. My "Kavu Rope Sling Bag" is polyester. The "Kavu Rope Bag" is cotton. I got the "Arrow" color. The arrows are black and the fabric is grey.

Has a lot of storage. All the compartments fasten securely so you are sure not to loose anything out of it. Took it on our vacation and loved it!

This is way better than I expected! I tried a Patagonia sling back pack a couple years ago and really didn't like it, but this KAVU bag is shaped better and the compartments are more accessible. In response to the one reviewer about it being for "lefties." I thought the same thing, too, when I first tried it on, but what I discovered is that it's actually perfect for right handed people. This is why: it slings on the left side so when you swing it to the front to get something out of it your right hand actually has easier access than the left. It's not the same idea of wearing a cross body at your hip, where you do want it on the same side as your "useful hand," because in that intense you're reaching down into your purse. I hope that makes sense! So don't let the fact that it hangs on the left side discourage right handers to try this!

I really like this wallet because it's casual style and it has a lot of storage. It holds a decent amount of cards and closes with no problem. It has two areas for cash which is perfect for me - I always carry Canadian and American money in my wallet. Overall, I really like this wallet. The size is great and it fits my existing purse for size and style.

I bought this bag a year and a half ago. This bag is amazing! I am a "simplistic" style type of gal. Functionality was a big priority. This bag delivered. I fit a ton of stuff and could still add more! I can even fit a water bottle in it. As a college kid who works and likes to go out and about this bag can go everywhere and anywhere! Wish the fabrics could be classier and prettier but this bag is durable! I love this bag. I do agree with others that the bag is built backward with the phone pouch but I use it for sunglasses so it isn't that bad. Highly recommended for anyone who needs functionality and durability!

Perfect on-the-go mommy bag. I wasn't sure of the quality since it was such a great deal, but I've taken it on two trips plus daily use and it is in perfect condition. Only issue is cell phone holder doesn't fit my HTC One, but no biggie, there are plenty of other pockets. I've had multiple compliments on it!

I am really happy with the fast shipment. The bag was for my husband on Valentine's day so I got excited and gave it to him early. :)) he really likes it. Great size and very light weight.

This wallet is a lot bigger than I thought it would be, while still being slim and compact. Holds my iPhone 6 (in it's case), plus cash, cards, coins, Chapstick, and checkbook. I have gone through about 10 wallet type designs lately, and I think I'm finally set with this. I was worried about cards falling out after reading other reviews. I shoves a couple cards in each slot, and shook vigorously many times. Cards never budged, and I haven't had issues while carrying it around outside of my purse. Great wallet, for a good price.

This bag is very small. Actual compartment measures 13 x 13 X 1 1/2 inches. The info on bag said 4 1/2 across bottom. Not happy at all, especially spending this much.

The quality is terrific. I found the photo with the model to be misleading when it came to the size. It was so little compared to how it appeared on the model. I do love the quality. Just sad it was so tiny.

I returned this bag. The material attracts too much lint on the outside, was constantly picking strings, hairs and other things off of it. Also, the shape of the bag and placement of the zipper make it awkward to open easily. I usually love Kavu bags but this one was a miss for me. The pockets, and room in the bag was great, as was the quality of the bag.

Bought this for my daughter and she loved it! She had the small bag but was wanting a little bigger one without losing the look & feel of the shoulder bag. This is perfect! It has extra compartments & with the extra room, it's great for a mom, with a baby & toddler, who still likes to have a "purse."
