I absolutely love this bag!! It is super spacious and has tons of pockets. Not to mention the gorgeous color! And it looked exactly like the photo. I also like the adjustable strap. I defiantly recommend this bag!

This is nice bag. However, once I place my iPad2 in the outside pocket, the velcro closure won't close - it is sewn on too low to secure the pocket. Also, the pocket is only slightly padded, on the outer side. No padding on the inside-the-bag side of the pocket. There is only one zippered pocket in this bag, on the inside. All other closures are velcro, except for the single snap that closes the main compartment. It's a nice bag, but not secure enough, and it does not fit a naked iPad2 well at all.

Love this purse. The colors are what I expected from looking at the picture. I was a little surprised at how small it was buy still fits a large wallet, cell phone, and keys. Will probably buy the larger size as well for large shopping days and work!

These bags are all the rage with my 10 year old daughter's group. Roomier than I imagined. Seems to be very durable. She's happy so I'm happy. LOL. :D

This looked like the perfect bag to take on a trip to Europe. Could fit snacks, little items, small camera and a water bottle. But a seam ripped along one of the pockets by the stitching - must have had too much weight for it? Also, the velcro closures seem nice until you reach into the deep compartments with a sweater and continually have to pull it off the sweater sleeves.

I love this bag! I searched all over for and bag that I could carry hands free and also was large enough to hold all of my stuff. Well made and worth every penny spent.

Love this bag. This is my 2nd one. I have one that is a lighter blue, I tend to drop them anywhere and the light blue shows dirt. So went with black this time. Plenty of pockets. and since it is a cross body bag can leave you hands free while shopping, hiking or most anything.

The KAVU Sidewinder purse is my everyday purse and I refuse to change it! I have two different patterns for the sake of fashion and occasional matching. I bought the purse for a 10 day trip to Costa Rica in 2013 and now I cannot do without it. It's very roomy but has a low profile. Front pocket: iPhone. First compartment: gum, snacks, ink pen. Main compartment: Wallet, change purse. Zippered inside compartment: hygiene items etc. Outside zippered compartment: my keys -- I never have to search! Also, the Folk Fest pattern is delightful. I get many compliments on the purse.

I don't buy a lot of purses, so I'm kind of picky. I also won't spend a ton of money on them. I am loving this purse! The colors are fun! And the style is just right for me. I like that it can be worn as a crossbody if I want and there are just enough pockets for all I want to carry. Also, it's not so big that I am tempted to carry too much. So far, it seems to be holding up okay. It's a really nice purse for a very nice price.

I love my new bag. I'm not really a big fan of purses, but it becomes kind of necessary when you wear skirts and things without any pockets. The Sidewinder is just the right size to hold most everything it need it too. My iPad fits (barely, but it fits) if I need to take it with me. A water bottle also rides nicely and I can have both of those in the bag along with my wallet and all sorts of other things I've found to carry around. I love that you can change the size of the main pocket and all of the zippered pockets are great to stash important stuff (tickets, passport, etc) you don't just want floating around in the main section. I guess the only drawbacks: #1: the velcro on the front two pockets is really "sticky" (a pro and a con) so it can be hard to open quietly. #2: I wish the other colors offered weren't so ugly. I like the simplicity of the black, but fun colors would be great too.

Brands I'd also recommend: STM bags, Timbuk2

I've had this purse for about a year now and it still looks great, and not a single stitch is out of place. I get compliments on it all the time. It holds everything a mom on the go needs, with logs of extra storage. I've only had to open the expandable zipper a couple of times because it's so accommodating. I'm rough on purses, so the inside liners usually dissolve quickly, but this purse is well-made and still going strong.

I got my new black Kavu crossbody bag yesterday. I am so happy with it. I wanted something lightweight for summer that would go with a lot of different things and this is perfect. It's not too big or too small, it's well made, and has plenty of pockets.

I absolutely love this bag. I purchased it for a purse not really knowing if I would like it, but it is so easy to carry and does not put strain on my shoulders or arms that normal purses would.

I love this purse! In fact, I like the KAVU brand; I own other purses by them. It is big, but is not huge wearing it on your hip. I like all the separate pockets. I want to order the same purse in a different color/design!

I recently got this bag in a different pattern and absolute love it! The material is beautiful but sturdy and easy to clean. The strap is unique and adds a super fun flare. It's a great bag that hold all of the essentials. I'm even thinking of getting another in a different color. Great product and as always super fast shipping. Thanks so much!

Very nice bag! The material is sturdy, but not rough, so it won't snag on clothes, etc. Love the rope strap, however, it's designed for right-handed people. I'll just turn it around and wear it backwards!

I love this bag! I use it as a small book/magazine bag and it works great. It's canvas but seems resistant to water and stains. It was just what I was looking for.

I bought this bag for a trip to Europe where we were warned to beware of pickpockets. Overall, I have been pleased, especially with the expansion feature and the cross body style. There are plenty of pockets to zip up valuables such as passports and money. There are two things I would change. The top needs to zip instead of snap. The clasp on the strap needs to be in the front instead of the back.

I really love everything about this bag except for the rope strap. I do like the way it looks; however, if the rope is rubbing against my skin at all, it will start to give me rope burn.

Ugh, Kavu. I have been looking for a roomy, lots of pockets kind of bag for travel. You almost had me with this bag until I saw the strap clasp. A crossbody that can be unbuckled from behind (read: in a crowd, by a stranger who wants to steal your bag) while you are wearing it is not practical at all!

Love the style of the bag but I ordered the antique blossom color and the bag is not the same colors as the picture so very disappointed with that and thinking of sending it back.

The bag shape, color, and strap color are all very similar to the pictures and description. I loved this bag until two of the straps broke after only about a month of every day use. It was disappointing because otherwise the bag is great--roomy but not bulky, lots of pockets for organization, and casual but not too casual. Sadly, I'm no longer able to use it due to the straps breaking.

Unhappy with this purchase. This bag is smaller than I expected, and the material catches everything. It's always covered with hair, lint, etc.
