Absolutely love the Haiku City Satchel, except for the top zipper. It tends to unzip too far and I have to search for the pull. Would be better if it were sewn into the opening rather than going further then the ends of the opening.

I was surprised that the ink/black/blossom -the one with the reddish flowers was not faux suede/leather as described. It is really made of shiny nylon canvas. It would be a cute bag, but the shiny canvas makes it very very casual looking. It is not a bag I could take to work. And definitely is not a bag I would go out with, ever. I do not understand how this canvas bag was given the same price as other classier looking ones. I guess mistakes happen. I sent this back. I really liked the size, the pockets, and how the middle had big enough space for water, a book, snacks, and more. It is not big enough to carry spare shoes or anything like that.

I love the design, material and colors. However, I very much dislike the placement of the zippers. The full top zipper is too far down so I have to fish for it and then untangle it. The side pocket zippers are also too far down so more difficult to use and also require fishing for them.

I wasn't fond of this purse and returned it, although there wasn't anything wrong with it. The fabric is covered with textured black dots and I found it unattractive. I would have loved a close up shot of the texture before buying.

I got this bag to replace my "to go" bag after I bought my iPad, thinking that the bag would be just enough bigger to hold the iPad. To my surprise, it really is no bigger, and the iPad doesn't really fit with a cover on. Too bad, because I really like the bag, but I am afraid I have to return it.

This is the best bag I've ever owned. It does everything I need a bag to do. It has plenty of pockets -- three outside, three inside -- and the pockets are all nicely sized. One of the inside pockets is perfect for my Kindle while outer pockets (which zip) comfortably contain phone, keys, pens and other go-to items. I love that it's made of recycled materials and that I can handwash it. I hope Haiku will make this bag forever -- in an increasing array of colors!

This bag is awesome! I bought it a year ago for a trip to Rome, and have been happy with it ever since. The front zipper pockets are the exact perfect size for passports, which makes airport travel much easier. All the pockets zip closed, and the bag is light weight.

I am super happy with this bag, it's the perfect all-around for when I'm running around. A plethora of generously-sized pockets and a sturdy composition make this bag a real winner for the urban warriors.

I love this purse! One of the front pockets holds my iPhone 4s (in an Otter Box) and my sunglasses fit perfectly in the other. I leave them zipped when I want extra "security" or unzipped for easy access. The inside pockets/flaps offer more perfect storage options as well. The strap lets me use this purse as a shoulder bag or, after lengthening it, as an across the body bag. It's easy to keep organized with this bag and it's easy to get to everything inside even with it on my shoulder. The perfect bag!

I really like this satchel. It has two small size zipper pockets on the front of the outside. I use one for my cell phone and the other I use for my lip gloss, mirror and pill case. The long zipper pocket on the back side I use for my long size index wallet. Inside there are two pockets, one on each side of the purse. One is a zipper closure the other side Velcro. There is enough room for my iPad in the center. I have my Ipad in a compact leather case that is an easy fit. I am not sure if an Otter Box (for Ipad) would slip in and out as easy though. I can wear the strap on one shoulder or cross body very comfortably. It is a really nice attractive, comfortable, accommodating bag!

I love this purse! It is the perfect size for me--not to large but I can still get everything in that I need including my iPad. It is very light weight and I like that it is made of recycled materials. It has plenty of pockets inside and out and the outside pockets zip so there is no danger of losing anything.

This is a great bag - lots of space, durable, good looking, plenty of pockets. If I could change anything, it would be the strap. A great big purse like this shouldn't have such a narrow, slippery strap. When it isn't sliding off the shoulder, it's digging in. Other than the strap - I love it.

I really like this bag - the durability, quality, size and its numerous pockets. I just wish that the buckle on the strap doesn't sit on or near my shoulder the way it does...it's rather uncomfortable. And aesthetically, I wish it had a flap....that would make it look a lot neater and cleaner. I never spend this much on a purse, I think it's really expensive, but I got a gift certificate. Overall, I am pleased with it.

Great bag, perfect for traveling, lots of pockets for everything and I really like the fact that there are multiple zippered outside pockets. I got the purse in black, and the length plus the adjustable shoulder strap is perfect for someone short (about 5 ft). One issue - for the price - the seams started to come apart after 1 week of use which was less than impressive. I am wary of buying another from this brand due to this quality issue.

I love this bag. The color is gorgeous, it's a great size, and I've been really happy with Haiku products in the past. Unfortunately, I was looking for something that would hold my MacBook Air (11.6" without a case) and this doesn't quite do it. It might have fit if the opening hadn't been narrower than the body of the bag, but it didn't. (I liked the bag enough that I tried a couple of times to fit it in there, which is kind of funny/ridiculous given that the laptop is a rectangle: I mean, how many different ways are there that it could fit?)
