This is the greatest bag I ever purchased. It is lightweight and a lot of room without all the weight and cannot go wrong with this bag.

Love this purse. It's light in weight, strap is very adjustable. I have a 7" tablet, it fits in without any problem and the bag still isn't heavy. I own two of them, love the red so I'll probably order that one, too.

This a a nice looking, well made bag, but it doesn't have enough room for my stuff. It looks larger than it is. You can put things in the zippered sections, but anything more that pieces of paper or lipstick, keys etc. and it bulges and loses its shape and looks puffy. So if you like most of your things in one compartment and a few pockets for smaller items, this might be the purse for you. I returned this purse.

I've loved Kipling for just about ever now. My dad's wife brought me a bag back from a trip to Europe over 10 years ago and I have been a fan ever since. They last forever and can be washed if you want. They are my favorite.

The zippers on this bag keep it from looking too boring and they provide easy access. Lightweight with lots of compartments for traveling and walking around with stuff, but small enough to put in my carry on luggage. Love it.

Amazing bag! I ordered "lustrous night" which was limited edition and I'm so happy I purchased it. Only downside for that bag is the sparkling things come off and gets all over you. After a few days of use you don't have anymore sparkle on your clothes, but two more days later, there is no sparkle left on the bag at all. This color really needs the shimmer and sparkle to go with the color, since without the sparkle, it just looks like messy purple blue and other color mixed. That's why I'm giving 3 stars, but for solid colors, I don't think it matters.

I love this bag! The fabric does not retain dirt. The number of pockets accessible from the outside makes it easy to store and find everything. The adjustable strap allows for the length to adjust depending on what I am using it for. I am 6'3" tall and the longest length is plenty long for me; however, it could also be made much shorter if you needed that. I was looking for the perfect cross-body bag and I found it.

I'm a Kipling "Queen" with probably 20+ bags over the years! This one is loaded with zippers and pockets, so I know just where to find everything -- no stress, no mess! The key holder is handy, the bag is a perfect size for me to use over the shoulder or cross-body for hands-free.The fabric is fabulous and long-wearing. I love Kipling and I love Zappos!

I first saw the Kipling brand while I was in Spain this summer and have wanted a bag ever since. I just got mine yesterday! I love it already and becoming a fan of Kipling products. It's big enough to hold my iPad mini and all of my other things (wallet, gum, lip balm, contact solution, pens, and other stuff). I carry with out being too bulky. Zappos really impressed with their super fast delivery and great prices I'm thinking about ordering a Kipling creativity pouch!

I ordered this purse day before yesterday and received it yesterday. I love Zappos' speedy delivery best I've ever experienced. I immediately switched purses and the material seems very durable and I love how much stuff you can get into this purse and it's not heavy. Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks again Zappos for outstanding products and service. I'm a customer for life.

I love love Kipling bags! Durable and stylish. Great for traveling and going shopping. Cross body frees up your hands. I'm a plus size woman and I appreciate that the strap is long enough to actually cross my body. I really like that it cleans up so easily. It's a little smaller than I was hoping for but it keeps me from putting to much in my purse. This has become my go to purse and I use it often. Wish I could get every color and a few more styles.

Absolutely LOVE this bag! I have four of them-- grey, turquoise, black with gold hardware and no monkey :(, and coated black. Not too big, not too small. Perfect. Wish they would find a way to convert to a backpack for walks through the woods. Love Kipling!

Love this cross body bag. Cute, lightweight, sturdy, great size for daily use. Pockets abound. I was looking for a lightweight cross body bag and a friend recommended this one. So glad! My son loved the little gorilla keychain too!

Love the bag and the color is true, it is a cherry that pops! I have had another Kipling bag for 8 years and it has been around the globe and after nearly daily use for that whole time, the main zipper broke. So ordered this lovely bag and like the pockets, lining and overall quality. Received it quickly, well wrapped and protected. This was my first order from Zappos, but will not be my last.
