Where has this bag been all my life? It's perfect! Holds all my stuff and doesn't slide off my shoulder. Doesn't feel heavy. I may get all of them.

This is one of the best bags in the world! Funky, stylin',easy access, unique (many will offer compliments), comfortable (rope does not cut into your shoulder), unisex look (a man could wear it) just love it! So did my mother, who Ended up getting the black (I have the khaki). Also, one may widen the cell pocket a bit by cutting a few threads and then my cell fit nicely! Too good to be true! Would buy another in green if it existed, but only two colors from which to choose. Kavu, are you listening? More colors more sales for you!

I love this bag. The ropes are comfortable, and I love that there are two pockets. Perfect for bike rides, walks, hikes, and travel. I bike or walk to work and pack my lunch, dress sandals and whatever else I need in here. My only complaint is I would like more organization options, and the cell phone pocket would be nice on the ropes instead of on my back, so I can actually answer it on time! As always, Zappos was incredible on this order. Will never order clothing from anyone else.

The best bag for travel, hands down. I've taken it canoeing and to Disney World in the last couple of weeks, and let me tell you - it's perfect. The strap is adjustable, so my husband could even throw it on his back at Disney (and I have the tan version, so it wasn't too embarrassing!) and even he said that it was comfortable and useful. The pockets are large enough to hold everything. In fact, I keep the essentials in one of the large pockets and the incidentals (gym lock, head bands, head phones) in the other. There is plenty of room for everything. My cell phone is too big for the front pocket, but I have a bottle of hand sanitizer in one and receipts in the other, both are convenient. The best part of this bag is that it fits ergonomically to your back, and even fully loaded there is no back pain. I'm buying another one in a different color, this bag is worth every penny!

Cool looking bag. I got the candy stripe and I just came back for the black bag...very useful and handy when shopping with my two young children. I just clip it to my cart and don't have to worry about someone swiping my bag. It is also very sturdy so I don't worry about messing it up as I do with my pricier leather handbags.

I ordered this bag for my 19 year old daughter for her birthday. She had seen one that a friend of ours had and she fell in love with it. My daughter is a college sophomore and has to carry so much to school, it's great to have a purse that simply slips over your shoulder. The bag arrived sooner than I expected--just in time for her birthday party. She loved it and that made me happy! Thanks Zappos.

This bag is awesome! I bought it for my recent trip to Haiti. Inside I kept my passport, money, phone, etc., as well as a first aid kit to help people as needed. I found myself continually grabbing the first aid kit. It was right in my reach -- so easy. It does not tell you that this is okay, but when I got home, it was filthy from all the work we had done. I washed it in the washing machine and let it air dry. It looks good as new. Only drawback, the cell phone holder on the strap is a joke. No phone I have is small enough to fit in there!

Kavu Rope Bag - I got this bag in white, I wish Zappos had a black one in stock or maybe a blue one, since I'm not normally a white bag person, but the bag isn't too bright, it is a nice white. I like the two pockets on the side and I also like the easy access pockets, one for my phone and chapstick, the other one for hand wipes or Purell, which you really need now a days in reach! The bag fits nice and feels good on the back. The only complaint I have is that the strap that I tighten, has no place for the extra strap to go. I hope I didn't get one that someone returned that broke; I'm sure Zappos would have caught something like that. Other than that piece hanging down on the bag, I really like it. If Zappos gets a black one, maybe I'll get that one, too! It isn't too big, nor too small. Perfect for my purse for outings. I'm looking forward to taking it to the Big E as my purse; I want to be hands free when I shop!

This bag is SO rad!!! I absolutely LOVE it! I have the sea blue color. The two, spacious compartments are so practical. The designated area for your keys and phone on the exterior are so convenient; I can grab my phone in a snap! I'm a climber/kayaker/rafter/hiker, so I needed a durable, convenient bag. This bag definitely sufficed! Totally recommend it! Great job Kavu!!!

I've had this bag for a week and so far I am very pleased. I use it as a purse, basically, to hold cell phone, wallet, keys, sunglasses, a small book, bottled water, etc. It's not meant to hold more than a standard purse or small satchel would. Also, my phone fits perfectly in the top outside pocket, and I use the other one for keys or lip gloss -- so no complaints here. If you're looking for a comfy, well-designed and hands-free bag for city, hiking, or just running around, this is perfect. I ordered mine in the caramel color, which I see is no longer available; that's too bad, because more color options would be awesome.

I chose this bag to take on vacation to Alaska. It is handy because it is compact, and lightweight. I could fit my iPad in the larger side. I like the two sided feature. The strap was convenient. My biggest complaint is the external pockets are fairly useless. That was frustrating.

So close! This bag is close to perfect except one huge flaw - it is not for heavy use. I've had mine for only a few days, and I can already see the rope starting to unravel. It's a shame, because if Kavu could fix this, it would be beyond a doubt the perfect bag. It's comfortable, stylish, unique, and has oodles of space. It also stays on very well, which is a blessing for those of us with small shoulders or who need our hands free for wrangling small children (or pets). Please, Kavu, remake this bag with better ropes (and while you're at it, add maybe two more inner pockets and bigger outer pockets). Pretty please? If you do, I'll happily pay $10+ more a bag and buy 3, because I've yet to find a bag that fits so well and holds so much while looking so neat (and I've been looking for years). It was so close to awesome, I'm nearly in tears while packing mine up to return to Zappos.

What I like about the bag is that it goes over the shoulder to leave hands free. It is roomy; I can take my wallet and fit my somewhat large camera in it so I don't have to lug an extra bag with me. What I don't like is that the 2 outer pockets are way too small for cell phone or much of anything else.

I got this bag to wear primarily when biking to hold the few things that I would need to have on me while riding around town. I have been using it for almost a year now and I love it. The bag is pretty spacious for such a small size, and I can fit my camera, phone, wallet, keys & sunglasses in there no problem. The strap is definitely the best part of the bag, it is very stylish, comfortable, and keeps the bag nice and snug. I constantly get compliments about the bag, especially the bungee strap. I have the camel colored bag, and the color is nice and rich and complimented nicely with the navy blue lining. It is perfect for a hands-free bag when biking or walking around. It is highly recommended!

Love this bag! I am a college student,love to travel, and running around the park with nieces and nephews and dog. Just right to keep me hands free while at the park with the kiddos and dog and keep snacks in. Can throw my Nikon in when I am traveling, plus comfortable trekking across campus.

Almost perfect bag. Fits snugly when packed, attractive color, love the rope strap strong and spaces between lend it hanging when retrieving contents. Overall very happy with this sling bag. It is very difficult to find a good sling bag and the Kavu rope bag fits the bill.

This bag is made of sturdy canvas fabric and has a wide shoulder strap that can support it's weight. I like the bag and carry it everyday, I would just change a couple of things on design. The 2 front pockets barely hold anything. A iPhone in a Otterbox will not fit into either pocket. There is only 1 zipper pocket inside the bag, so everything falls to the bottom of purse into two long compartments that run down each side. For traveling purposes and safety issues: the strap has a plastic clip where the bag could be released from behind and snatched off you. Traveling abroad this could be a problem? I really wanted to love this bag! I like the look and feel of it, I just think it could be designed a whole lot better.

Great bag. Durable, convenient, has great compartments. So much better than a purse for travel. I gave it 4 stars for style because for a bag it's a great style, but a purse is still cuter. It's much more comfortable than a purse though. Love this bag.
