Beautiful bag, very plain and simple. One thing: the interior of the bag is smaller than you might think because it ends at the zipper, which is about 2" from the top. So, it holds less than I thought it would, but it still works for me. Also, I am 5'5" and think the strap is just a bit long. The leather is soft and gorgeous, but it scratches very easily. I'm wondering how this bag will wear.

I was so excited to get this bag. I planned to use it for a long weekend in New York City and the style was perfect. The long hobo style to keep my hands free. The style is perfect - secured zippered pocket with 4 other pockets inside, and on the other side a roomy pocket with magnetic closure. I'm 5'4 and I adjusted the strap to the longest setting and it sat perfectly on my hip. Unfortunately this bag is going back. I ordered the Fawn color, which is a beautiful taupe/peach color, nothing like on the website. I actually went to my local Nordstrom to look at Hobo products in Fawn. It's a perfect shade for the warmer months. The problem is that the denim on my jeans rubbed against the bag and I can't get it off! I turned the bag around so it's on both sides, although I would have returned it even if it was on one side. I'm so disappointed but I do plan to order it in the Cognac color.

I absolutely love this bag. Big enough to tote around without being bulky or awkward and has enough room to carry around necessities for a daily outing. I've even been able to toss in a thin sweater if I'm cold going out! Well made and great color to go with anything and everything!

Love this purse. Beautiful leather. Excellent quality. Lots of storage. Like my other Hobo products, I expect this purse to give me years of enjoyment. You won't go wrong with this one. Zappos service is unbeatable. The purse was here overnight. Thanks Zappos.

This is a beautiful bag. It's the perfect size, shape, and weight for a crossbody bag. It holds an average amount of items comfortably. The only down side is the material. It is soft and slightly shiny, but it dulls quickly! If you're OK with a distressed looking leather, this bag is for you.

Great cross body bag! Love the soft vintage leather and the zipper compartment. The other side of the bag with the magnetic closure doesn't stay closed as well as I'd like...but overall a great bag!

I absolutely adore this bag! It is the perfect size for holding all of my daily essentials and more. The back pocket is perfect for an e-reader or even a note pad (you can fit a legal pad in the long way, I was excited!). I always get compliments on the bag, and really enjoy the hands-free cross-body style. I would wholeheartedly recommend this purse!

Love the way this bag looks and really wanted it to work for me but it was not functional for my needs. Although you can fit full size iPad in the outer pocket, the inner zippered pocket will not hold much then and visa versa. The zippered opening is shorter than the full bag width and the inch+ at the top of the bag is sewn shut making it's storage smaller than it appears. Also, the strap is too long and the bag hits me on the upper thigh or rear end at it's shortest and I'm 5'6". The leather is beautiful but it is shiny and soft and looks like it could wear or scratch easily. A gorgeous bag for a tall person who isn't looking for a real tote sized bag.

Always been a fan of Hobo style and function but not price. Last 2 bags were disasters . I like a primary daily use purse and bought last one for $200.+ it had the sheen on the leather which flakes off and makes the purse look shabby and old. Thought maybe it was defective and didn't want to give up on brand loyalty so stupidly bought another similar Hobo bag same thing happened. hard to find Hobo bags without the sheen that flakes off . Or hard stiff leather wish they'd bring back something more durable like pebbled leather or something that looks good after 6 months especially given the cost

I have looked at Hobo brand bags for years and this was my first purchase - a birthday splurge. I love the style of this bag. It is comfortable to carry and has plenty of room for my things - I usually carry a small to medium size bag. The leather feels soft and and the hardware is lovely. I have never had a bag with a smoother operating zipper. I am very disappointed with its wear, however. I have carried it less than a month and the beautiful purple color is gone from the bottom corners - they are turning grey/white. I would have expected a bag at this price and with its other thoughtful design elements to hold up a lot better.

Thrilled with this bag in terms of overall size, shape and quality. I am a crossover devotee and this big is very comfortable and easy to access but also secure with the zippered main section. Just enough pockets inside for organizing. Not too big and not too small. My only mild complaint is that the bag has a slight odor - perhaps the dye? I think that will subside over time.

First of all, I have to say that any company that will send the item I ordered so that I receive it the next day, is a company I will be very loyal to. Zappos, I love you. This bag is exactly what I love-beautiful, soft leather, a little distressed, but a nice finish on the leather. I ordered the "cloud" color and it is a beauty to behold. This bag is large, but not a messy, slouchy large. It could pass for dressy and it will look great with a more casual outfit. I am smitten with it. However, I did order it to use as a crossbody bag, but on my 5'7" medium build body, it is going to be only a shoulder bag. The top of the bag hits high on my waist and that is not comfortable for me as a crossbody bag. I love this bag regardless.

Great style if you are looking for a classic bag without a lot of hardware to weigh it down. Roomy enough for wallet, phone, a few other essentials. Love the blue as it isn't quite navy - goes with everything! Adjustable strap so you can customize it to your height.

I'm in love with Hobo purses and even more in love with Zappos. The Lorna purse is made of a beautiful, high quality leather. It has multiple interior pockets so there is no need for a wallet if you like to keep your purse light like I do. This is my first over the shoulder purse. It's great for shopping since you don't have to hold on to anything. If you are petite the strap is a little long. Zappos has extraordinary customer service. You never have to wait on hold for long for a representative to answer. They are always friendly and helpful. They don't make you feel bad if you need to make a return or exchange. I appreciate always getting to talk to a live person versus an automated machine & buttons.

I bought this to use as my everyday purse. When it arrived, I was a bit skeptical, as it appeared quite flat. However, it is beautiful, and it has softened and expanded a bit as I've worn it. The outside pocket is perfect for my Kindle or iPad (or a small book), and the interior fits my sunglasses, reading glasses, phone, wallet and keys easily. This is not a tote, so I carry something larger when I need to. It fits me perfectly (I'm 5'7"). My only criticism is that the color appeared more taupe on the web site. It's definitely a warm grey. I will buy this bag in another color, too. I love it!

I love this purse! The quality of the leather, the bright fabric lining, and the abundant space it offers fits my needs. The purse is comfortable to wear and it is not bulky or too heavy. I am very picky about purses and this one by far is the classiest, durable and versatile one that I own. I plan on purchasing every color! Thank you Hobo International!

The mocha color is much darker than pictured. It looks more chocolate brown in person, which make sense given that the color name is 'mocha' but picture makes it look much lighter. The overall size of the bag is as pictured and the leather quality seems good. Returning for a different color.

Perfect Crossbody for Business---Finally and Thankfully! I just purchased a second Hobo Lorna from wonderful Zappos so that I will have a backup ready. The size is sufficient. I am 5'7", so the length of the strap is perfect. If I were shorter it might not be suitable. I love the open back slip pockets. First: There is NO zipper to catch on knit dresses and one does not scrape one's hands trying to reach in this slip pocket. Second: The slip pocket easily holds my Samsung Galaxy smartphone and the small notebook and pen that I must always have at the ready. Third: The inside pocket will hold a tablet, but I love my Kindle Fire 7" which I carry everywhere. Then there is room in the tablet pocket for my pen/pencil calendar. (Yes, I use an electronic calendar, but I will never give up a monthly + daily calendar for notes and contemporaneous and chronological record which is therefore a legal document of activity, discussions, calls, etc.) There is sufficient room for zipped containers for a few cosmetics, daily meds/vitamins/allergy meds, sunglasses with case, a Mason & Pearson comb which is better than any brush ever made, and a larger bound journal. I am beyond happy. I do not want to think about how many purses/$ I have spent in pursuit of the "Perfect Purse". But those I share/gift to others. And now I have my own Perfect Purse. Kudos to Hobo and to Zappos for this fine handbag. I hope that this is a style that will remain in Hobo's line. If this purse ever appears in a rich dark espresso and some interesting bright colors, I'll be waiting in line to purchase every color.

Brands I'd also recommend: Marc Jacobs quilted nylon totes---but no comparison to this Hobo Lorna crossbody in terms of organization and professional look.

I love this bag. First, it's a cross body but it's very roomy (without being huge). Second, my iPad (in its case!) fits comfortably inside. I got ginger, and it's the perfect color for fall -- it's a nice, rich mustard color.
