This is a nice bag; however the Hobo "Odyssey" is better. First, this bag has a very wide strap which kept slipping off my shoulder. Second, the lining is dark and the opening at the top doesn't seem as wide as the Odyssey. It is also quite a bit heavier than the Odyssey. The leather on the Odyssey is much softer and the bag is lighter in weight. It is still a great bag, well made and all. Note: the Odyssey was listed as having a zip closure, but it has the same magnetic closure as the Gabor.

Nice purse, I got the honey off white python. Decently made but no where near worth close to a lot. I love Coach and B mak. This is lightweight suede leather. I doubt it would hold up as a keeper to bring back for multiple seasons. Very disappointed, as I really like the neutral color and soft python print :(. Opening at top of purse is too small to access easily.

I Am In Love - How thrilling it was when this gorgeous handbag came into my life. The leather is so soft and the overall look of the bag is quality. It is a very large Hobo bag and gets a lot of attention. I am also impressed with Zappo's speedy delivery.

Brands I'd also recommend: Matching shoes or boots would be nice.

Vintage Appeal - This purse is large and lovely! The leather looks weathered/worn which gives this hobo a vintage look, absolutely gorgeous!

I am in love with my new purse. It is the perfect purse that I have been looking for forever. I got the dark brown color and it looks slightly vintage. It fits perfectly on my arm, has a great little side pocket to put my keys, and interior pockets for my phone, lipstick, gum, and all that good stuff. I absolutely love it. Just buy it. You will not regret it, even when your credit card bill arrives.

I am happy with this purchase. My goal was to find a very very light-weight leather bag. You cannot get lighter than this. It holds all my stuff (and my 1-year-old's stuff) and is still not heavy -- no shoulder aches! I have a cloth Coach bag that is heavier when empty compared to this Hobo bag when full. It is not a rich nice leather. It scratches easily, and some of the stitching (thread) is already fraying after one month. But it holds everything, super light-weight, and no one notices the fraying except for me, so it's a good purchase.

I bought it in violet and have gotten lots of compliments on it. I love the look and feel of the Gabor. If you are into big purses with lots of room, I definitely recommend this one. Great quality and a small zip pouch on the side makes for easy access to your phone. I love it!

This Hobo bag is my favorite because of the soft, smooth leather, a great color and I can clean it easily with leather cleaner. The pockets inside are ample with the plastic zippers I prefer. I almost sent the bag back because the outside pocket zipper is metal. That can be irritating to my hand but I figured that I could use that for rarely used items and use the large flat side pocket for my keys and phone. There is no zipper and it is easier to get into. I am the odd duck that wants less bling on purses and this one provides that while being stylish. The strap stays easily on my shoulder. The bag opening is big enough to easily reach into. There is enough body in the leather that the bag remains more as seen in the photo. The middle does not slouch over in a fold. I am picky - I look for single strap bags with useful inside pockets and less metal. This one fits the bill (if they had only put a plastic zipper on the outside, it would be perfect!)

Perfect bag. I'm 5' 3" and it's just right for a big bag without being huge. Soft leather, wide strap that stays easily on your shoulder. It's surprisingly lightweight. I've owned several hobo brand bags and am always pleased with the quality and durability.

Gorgeous purple color, slight sheen, roomy enough to carry a book. I chose this bag because I grew tired of bags overloaded with shiny 'bling'. I wanted eye catching color, real leather, and a touch of elegance. Great bag!

I love this bag so much! I really wanted it in Harvest color, but when the Caramel came up on sale, I snatched it up. It is so luxurious. The leather is soft and smells so nice. I love the pockets inside for a pen, checkbook and other pockets for other items. The lining is beautiful and unique for each color (I personally love the design on the caramel lining). The strap is nice and wide and way more comfortable than my last purse. The only drawback (but pretty minor) is that it is so slippery, it slips off my lap and needs to be set on the floor when sitting. I want every other color of this bag and every other Hobo International bag, too! If I were rich, it would be so!

This bag is amazing. I love the zipper outside pocket. The inside also good pockets, one zips and the other are firm open pockets but because they are firmer stuff actually stays in. The purse isn't as shiny black like in the picture (which I like because I felt the shinny picture made it look cheap). Great size, it's a medium bag, but with all the functional pockets I feel like I can fit everything I could imagine (sunglass case, wallet, makeup bag, kids onesies/toys) and still have room. Again the outside pocket I use for keys and my iPhone and it's so nice not to always have to dig for my things.

Excellent bag. Stylish, light weight and roomy. It's also very well organized for a hobo style bag, with several inside slip and zip pockets, a key hook and an outside zip pocket. To those stating the leather isn't of good quality, well, they must be purchasing bags that are much more expensive than what I am accustomed to. This is the best bag I have ever had and the leather looks, feels and smells amazing.

Hobo International is the bomb! I love this bag. I have three of this brand and I love them. It is a nice soft leather and is light to carry. It's a perfect size. It's not huge and it's not small either.

This was my first purchase on Zappos and it was a great experience. The purse is wonderful; soft leather, true to picture color, and even has a cute interior and a small outside zip side pocket that's perfect for your keys.

This is a great purchase BUT the stone vintage leather is quite different in color from what is shown online. The actual product is more of a slate gray. Simplicity of features and quality are top notch and it is a very comfortable bag to carry. Fits an iPad and more... Really no complaints at all other than the surprise on the color!

Beautiful handbag. The leather is good quality and is a great color-the stone leather goes with everything. It is roomy but doesn't look too big, even on my petite frame. Lots of deep pockets to store stuff. I wish it zipped instead of having a magnetic closure, but I really like it. This is my second Hobo bag. I have had my old one for over two years and it is still in great shape. This one seems like great quality as well.

I really like this bag but don't "love" it for a few reasons: 1) the color I received is not a rich black - more of a dark plum color, 2) the inside zipper just broke after 2 weeks, slightly flimsy, 3) the strap does not stay securely on my shoulder. However, despite this, still a great bag, stylish, holds plenty as the other reviews say without being overwhelmingly huge. But a tad disappointed I paid this much for a bag that's not quite what I expected.
