Really the perfect everyday bag. Very well laid out. I do not have any problem finding any item in the Kipling Europa. I purchased it in Espresso (the tag itself says "Barclay Brown") and it is a richly toned and neutral coffee color. Really sophisticated in natural daylight. This bag offers a spacious main compartment. You can put a tablet and a light sweater in it, and more. Watch the model (April?) opening up the compartment, it's amazingly roomy. I hate having to rummage through cramped bags, but I can rummage to my heart's delight with so much room. It is not boxy like the pictures suggest, it slouches more like a hobo style so it lays nicely against the body. My cell stays in the smallest outer compartment. There is an organizational middle pocket with a key fob for pens, sketchbook and glasses. The pocket facing the body is a perfect place to keep passport, tickets and money. The side pockets won't contain a bottle of water (unless it's a squat bottle), those dollar-bottles of water will just topple out. Side pockets will hold all sorts of gadgets/cables or hand sanitizer/lotions you don't want leaking elsewhere. The zippers are so amazingly smooth. I am very tempted to pick up a matching wallet, the Kipling Brownie.

I searched high and low for the perfect bag and found it. It's light, ergonomic, organized, spacious, and easy to use. I carried it everyday on a long trip to a faraway land (for me) and it had a pocket for everything...a dedicated pocket in the back where I put my full sized wallet safely against my body, small pockets on both sides for hand sanitizer, soap, and pony tail holders, a perfect zip pocket on the front for my iPhone, a bigger zip pocket behind it for pens, bandaids, subway tickets, and a big main pocket for glasses, sunglasses, camera, video camera, and even water bottle. yes, it held it all easily with room to spare and i always knew where everything was, which made my trip oh so much more enjoyable. Thank you, Kipling. One of the best things about it was that the zippers were so pleasant to use and never scratch my skin as I reach in the bag. The wide, easily adjustable strap was perfect.

I LOVE this bag. Light, organized, soft, and comfortable. I love that there are so many pockets that I can dedicate one for my phone, one for my wipes, one for my wallet...and then there is another pocket with awesome organizational pockets for pens, key hook, lipstick, and another pocket for a jacket, big things, etc. I can take out my phone without digging and I don't worry that I pulled out and dropped something in the process. It can be full or it can be mostly empty - but it is ALWAYS organized. Thank you, Kipling, for thinking this one through so well!

I love this bag! It is roomy, has lots of pockets and a very cool industrial look. I have had it for about 2 years, it is very durable. It comes out of the wash looking brand new!

There is a place for everything! There is one main compartment that is roomy with a zippered area. On the outside there are five different zippered pockets each a different size. I now have a precise spot for things like my keys, my glasses, all sorts of different lip balms, my phone, my checkbook and even an extra pen. Everything in its place! The bag is comfortable to wear both with a short and long strap. It is not a great looking bag but it is cute and is definitely practical and perfect for a busy mother of three boys! Now I want the brown one.

This bag is just great. Crinkle fabric is wonderful and durable. If it gets dirty, throw it in the wash and you are all set to go again. I have had this bag for over five years now and it looks just like new. Perfect amount of pockets to keep your stuff organized. Great thing about this bag is if you need to, you can put a lot of stuff in here, which is wonderful for those shopping trips when you have a bunch of little stuff, or you need to stash your lightweight jacket.

This is the best bag ever! I love the crinkle nylon fabric - it is super lightweight, durable and easy to clean. I do not keep it too full, but I appreciate having the extra room if necessary. So many pockets make things very convenient to locate. Soft, comfortable, adjustable strap. I love the key fob. Who does not love the happy monkey keychain?! Kipling is the best. Zappos' service is awesome as usual!

Bought this bag for an upcoming trip to Europe. Exactly what I wanted. Large enough to hold a day's worth of travel essentials but not so structured that it looks huge. Squishes together to give a thin silhouette if you don't have it full. Great, long cross body strap that works even for someone like me that often find those straps too short to be comfortable. Can't wait to use it. Nice deep navy which was the color I absolutely had to have and couldn't find in my other go to brands like Baggellini. Kipling will now be one of my go to's.

This is the BEST bag ever. I previously purchased the black one a few years ago but really really love this gray color. It works so well for both daily use as well as for travel with the many zippered compartments and varied strap length (to wear short or cross body). It's roomy enough without being too big and items are easily accessible. The Kipling quality never fails with its super strong durable nylon material and smooth zippers. This is probably my 8th Kipling bag and they always get better and better. The grey color has a super cute lining as well!

I was sad when my Guess bag had to be thrown away from my using it so much. Well, I came to my favorite place to shop, Zappos, and low & behold I found this awesome bag. Guess what? I actually prefer it over my "deceased" Guess bag! This Kipling Europa is so lightweight, soft, and very roomy. I'm nuts about all of the pockets and it's so easy to organize & find what I need. I love the gray color. I'm happy that I found this bag and I will definitely keep Kipling in mind down the road. I have a gut feeling that this bag will actually last a lot longer than my Guess.

This is one of the best bags I have purchased. It is lightweight and spacious with many useful zippered compartments. I love the design of the top zipper, which allows me to fit items into the bag without difficulty. If it weren't for the cost, I would certainly own another one! I am a practical person and do not shop a lot for handbags or care about the designer. The quality is the most important factor and it really shows with this bag.

Love it! It's less bulky than it appears in the photo. Perfect for everyday. Nice long adjustable strap to wear on your shoulder or as across body. And it's super light even with all my stuff in it! Excellent price, too! Thanks Zappos!

I love this bag. it's smaller than my last handbag, but carries more stuff. The pockets make life so much easier as I can organize the contents of the bag so much better than my last bag. I LOVE how light the bag is. I have a tendency to carry a lot of things about (Kindle, phone, wallet, checkbook, a Mommy bag with bandaids, Advill, hand sanitizer, Aquafor, hand lotion, scissors, tweezers, penknife, tootpicks etc), so I appreciate that the container for all my stuff is really light.

I just got this bag today and I have to say that I'm impressed. It's material is a little more canvas-ish than I was expecting, but overall it has all the pockets I thought it did when I first ordered it, and the crossbody strap which I like whenever I look around for a new handbag. I won't be getting another one anytime soon thanks to this one, it's large with so much space and lots of pockets, perfect for someone like me who likes to take everything with them. I like how I can fit my hairbrush, lotion, wallet and pretty well anything else that's a little larger. I have it in black and already I'm adoring it. The monkey keychain I got with it is a cute thing too.

If what you are looking for is good organization, comfort, and durability...this is the bag for you! I have had this bag in black for many years. I have two kids and this bag has taken a beating...but still looks brand new! The organization is second to none...there is a place for everything! And, it holds a ton without looking crazy big or bulky (looks smaller in person). Even when I have this bag packed as full as it can be, it is still comfy to wear. The strap is easily adjustable to wear either on the shoulder or cross body. Another thing I love about this bag is that the zippers are absolutely effortless! I can easily get in and out of the bag with just one hand. I recently stopped carrying this bag on a daily basis because now that the kids are a little older I wanted something a little more stylish (coach!). But we are planning for an upcoming trip so I got it back out and remembered how much I love it. It is truly a wonderful bag and a lifesaver for any mom wanting to stay organized!

I got this to use as a diaper bag as I don't like most diaper bags. It's perfect size. Not too big but can fit all your essentials. The pockets are very helpful, and the crossbody style is easy to use when handling kids. Love the material - easy to clean. The zippers make it look trendy. Overall, a big winner!

LOVE this bag. As everyone else who liked it says, it is roomy, cute and not too big. The image shows it quite full but I can say that I think it looks great full or empty. Mine is usually mostly empty. The width of the cross-body strap is also nice and wide, so it doesn't dig into your shoulder.

This purse is great and I was so happy to find it on Zappos! I already had the beige one for summer and wanted black for winter. It is light weight, nylon, very well made, nicely lined and with lots of zippered pockets to organize my stuff. The zippers are of good quality too. I need light purses now because of a bad back and this bag is the perfect solution, functional, nice looking and light weight when empty. Thanks Zappos!

This is one terrific purse. It has 7 zippered compartments allowing for great organization. The fabric allows small spots or areas with dust or dirt to wipe right of with a damp cloth. Love this purse. Not too big, not too small, just absolutely right.

I'm a huge fan of kiplings. I purchased the "Pahniero" Kipling, yet did not like the style. I'm petite and found it a bit long. I also found the Pahniero not as easy to get things out in a cluttered purse. I returned the Pahniero and found myself noticing the "Europa Large Crossover Bag". Much nicer then in the photos. Because of the depth of this bag is holds a lot, yet since it is more wide on the bottom, does not look big and bulkey. The bag is so easy to find stuff in. One big thing that I like about this bag, that I dont see that often is the side pockets are big enough to hold the bigger cell phones. I also like the back full zipper pocket, which is great for coupons. The front pocket is wonderful to because all the organiation is easy to access. Also very light weight. I have 3 kipling defeas, and so far I like the Europa Large Crossover Bag better. My other favorite is the Adomma yet the Kipling U.S.A. Europa Large Crossover Bag is more big purse size to me verses semi tote style. I'll admit it, I'm cheap when it comes to buying items. I normally always buy items when they are on sale. This purse I liked so much I purchased it as soon as I saw it, because it is big yet small. I did not want to miss getting this purse, I got it in black so it is now my everday bag, when I dont know what bag to use.

Finally, I found my perfect bag for a trip to Ireland! I ordered 7 bags from Zappos.com (Baggallini, Osprey, Timbuk2, other Kiplings), I checked online on many other websites, I went to the stores, and still couldn't find the perfect bag for me. Thanks to Zappos.com I have a lightweight, cross-body, nice looking bag (bought the "true blue" color) that can hold my iPad, 2 iPhones, a DSiXL, a digital camera with optical zoom, a small cosmetic bag, small wallet, passports and flight tickets. Love the number of the useful pockets; and I still have enough room for sunglasses, tissues, pen & pencils. Definitely a winner!

I love this bag. The combination of lightweight and large capacity cannot be beat. In addition I like the fact it comes in a rich brown and does not show dirt and blends with my travel browns and khakis as well as my brown and tan coats. I like brown.
