Great bag--I've been using it as a transition from diaper bag to purse, and it's perfect. Big enough to hold a (toddler-sized) change of clothes, snacks, etc., but still small enough to throw over the back of a chair in a restaurant or carry around all day at a park or zoo. I love the color and the design on the strap, and I've gotten lots of compliments.

I am trying to resist buying the newest color black, really a gray tone on my computer, of this bag. I am surprised I had not written a review of this bag since I usually do for most of my Zappos auditions and purchases. First this is bag is one of the best surprises ever. I usually buy my bags locally but realized that like their shoe selection, Zappos also carries an amazing selection of bags. Last season, the colors were not as cool as this one so I ordered basic black as well as several other bags, while searching for the perfect lightweight, well-organized bag. Keen shoes always looked great but never fit so I never thought of considering their handbags. Thanks to Zappos' incredible virtual and real service, I auditioned many candidates but this one topped the bill for a nice durable, casual bag. But it is also well-thought out in terms of organization with that outside back pocket (although the magnetic closure might be stronger as a Velcroed one especially if you tend to fill that back pocket up or the magnet may be a larger one) and the little hidden one in the flap. It is deep enough in the main compartment to lose stuff in. The brighter colored lining in the black bag makes finding things easy and the various pockets just under the flap just seem to be the right number for pens, business cards, glasses, whatever. There is room for glasses in the main pocket as well. I love the cell/media pocket on the outer back of the bag as well. I have never had two bags of the same design but this one is calling for me to order the new black! I think this one is a best buy! It is perfect for travel, perfect for getting around town. Not too dressy, not too casual, two thumbs up from someone who is as fussy about bags as shoes! Now if only Keen shoes would fit me as well!

This bag is the perfect size to carry an ipad along with your usual things. I am using it as my regular bag. The secret zippered pouch in the flap utilizes the entire flap area so flat things keep very nicely there. The design distributes the weight very well. The strap is sturdy and wide enough that it doesnt slip off my shoulder. The cell phone pouch has a very strong velcro strap to keep it inside. It is large enough to carry any brand cell phone even with bulky cases on them. Right inside in the front there are nicely sized pockets that are perfect for pens. I love this bag and highly recommend it to anyone

This was a little smaller than I expected it to be, but will work perfectly for a trip to Europe! The bottom will hold a small umbrella without getting int the way, a camera, and an iPhone and has lot of little other nooks and stuff for gloss, powder, etc. Can't wait to try it out this weekend!

It is called "travel" bag and I suppose anywhere you go technically you are traveling somewhere, but I use it as my everyday bag. I purchased the purple color, I think it a little less purple than the picture. It is a perfect bag. It has a ton of pockets, enough so you don't have everything in the one big area. I would say it is a great multipurpose bag as well. For instance I used it yesterday to shop at REI, had enough room to keep my Nook color, phone, iPod touch, keys, lotion, and plenty of room left over. Later that evening, I took my children to dance class and added a few "kid" items to the bag and still had enough room without it looking overstuffed. Today I went to class and I decided to try and put my 8.5x11 notebook (not laptop, but paper notebook) inside, and it worked! I also had my Nook color in that same spot. So, overall a great bag for just about everything.

This bag is my new favorite. It is big enough for all of my essential items yet small enough to carry around everyday and not get in the way. It is very sturdy and well made. The bottom of the bag is structured so that large items in the bag will not make the bottom sink and lose the overall shape of the bag. There are plenty of pockets in convenient locations. Very functional bag. The crossbody strap does tend to collect some lint from my sweaters and jackets, but it is minimal and easily removed. Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase and would recommend to others.

This is a durable, attractive, and efficient bag. I do think it's misnamed as a "Travel Bag." Though it may be fine for travel, for me it's my everyday bag. I purchased it in black, which I think adds a polished look; and the turquoise-color lining adds drama. It's lightweight and roomy--the perfect size--and the wide shoulder strap make it comfortable to carry. Because of its many pockets, it keeps me well-organized. My only criticism is that the outside pocket that I like for my phone fits only a small cell phone, not a smart phone. All in all, I recommend and give it a high rating.

I bought this bag for a trip so I could have my hands free while I walked around. The Keen bag was smaller than I thought, but it worked out really well. I still fit a lot in there and I love all of the little pockets. The color is nice, just like the picture.

I am traveling in Europe for two weeks this summer and this bag is perfect for daily excursions. It is not too small and not too large, it fits cross body, has a lot of pockets, closes securely, is sturdy, and is waterproof. It is not a full size messenger bag, you should not expect to be able to carry a laptop or iPad in it. It will carry all of the essentials you need for a day of exploring like a water bottle, wallet, umbrella, sun screen, maps, sun glasses, etc. Although the bag is not super stylish it is pretty cute and it will work perfectly for traveling. I am very pleased with this purchase.

This bag is like a clown car! I can fit my Kindle in its case, two sets of keys, my cell phone, a wallet, a bottle of ibuprofen, my film slr camera, chapstick & other little things, and there's still room for more! The cool part is that there's a perfect pocket for all of this stuff -- this is a very organized bag -- so that all of it is not just jumbled together in a big heap. I love this bag so much that I'm seriously considering buying another in a fall color just in case they discontinue this style by next season! Just awesome!

This bag is awesome. I was looking for something that was big enough to hold my water bottle and, occasionally, my iPad, but not so big that it might as well be a laptop bag. This it it. Good materials, lots of pockets and compartments, and it's the perfect size. I'll be carrying this one until it falls apart.

The Keen Brooklyn Travel bag is awesome? I purchased the bag for an upcoming trip but when it came the bag was so attractive and useful I started using it right away. I have received many compliments. The bag is very useful for my day to day going to work. The one thing I do wish is that the fabric was a little sturdier. I have worn the bag for almost a month now and the bag is wearing very well. The bag is also a great organizer for my belongings. I rate this bag a five. I would recommend this bag to everyone!

I love this bag. If you like a lot of pockets then this is for you! It's not too big but can hold a lot. I have only had one other purse that has come close to being as good as this one is.

Love this bag! I needed a new bag for an upcoming trip that could hold a ton of things. I originally ordered a Donner bag from Overland Equipment and the main compartment just wasn't roomy enough. When I got this Keen bag I thought I'd have the same problem, but once I put everything in and and had room to spare I fell in love with it! It's got lots of pockets to keep everything organized, and I love the easiness of the back pocket for boarding passes and such. You can get a ton of stuff in this bag without it looking stuffed and bulky. Love it!

Wow, I love this bag! I just got it a couple days ago, so I can't tell you if it will be durable yet, but considering how long I have had some of my Keen shoes, I think it will hold up fine! I got the Hibiscus color for Spring/Summer and am already planning to get another color for Fall. I'm a mom and a social worker, and pretty much live in my car and out of my purse. This bag has enough room for everything - wallet, makeup, keys, pens, small notebook, phone, MP3 player, nook... and yet it is very light and comfortable. There are lots of pockets to keep everything organized which I desperately need! The strap gets plenty long enough to wear this across your body, or you can shorten them and just use it like a regular purse. It would definitely be great for travel, but is also an excellent everyday bag. And, as usual, super-fast shipping from Zappos. Perfect!

I love this bag! I bought it for traveling but am using it often just at home. It's lighterweight than some other brands I looked at but still built sturdily. My iPad fits inside it and also can fit in the back pocket. In addition, I love the angled zip pocket on the front flap -- perfect for sunglasses. I bought the black/white one with light blue interior. It's very easy to find things inside. It has several pockets and also has a key strap with carabiner. So far, I've traveled to Mexico for one week and it was perfect, with room for a water bottle inside. Next trip is two weeks in Italy and I'm sure it will perform well.

This is a great bag! I purchased this bag for travel but find myself using it every day. The organization inside is great. There is tons of room for everything. I can carry my iPad in it. The color of the fabric makes it very stylish and can be dressed up. I also purchased a matching smaller wallet/crossbody bag that fits nicely inside. This bag is definitely one of my better purchases. It will not disappoint!

This is my second Brooklyn II because everything fits, including my Nook, billfold, three pairs of glasses, two sets of keys, etc. My only irritation is the noisy Velcro closure that sometimes grabs threads and sweater fuzz. That is a small price to pay for a bag that really works and looks nifty.

Exactly the bag I've been looking for with a cross chest strap. Lightweight, many pockets and holds all I need. Like the outside cell phone pocket.

I received this bag as a gift and I love it. I am always looking for that perfect purse/messenger bag hybrid. I can hold my kindle, a small nalgene, and plenty of additional items in this bag. It is durable, adjustable and holds a ton of stuff without being too big.

This across the body bag was just what I was looking for for my travels in Europe. It is a good size, lightweight and secure. It is also very comfortable. Of course, Zappos was fantastic!
