I was looking for an everyday bag that zipped on the top that would also fit my iPad--and this is perfect! As other reviewers have commented, the side pockets are a bit useless. But there's a great row of organizational pockets on the inside plus a large zip pocket. I love the D-ring--no more scrounging around for keys that inevitably slip to the bottom of the bag. And though it's hard to see in the picture, there's a clever outside zip pocket as well. I keep my wallet there so I don't have to scrounge for that either. My metrocard goes in the Velcro'd pocket in the back that's designed for a cell phone, and cell phone and ipod go in pockets in the inside. I've never had a problem with the Velcro sticking on clothes, and I love that the strap is adjustable to accommodate cross-body carrying. The color is vibrant and beautiful, and the bag (and its contents) have also held up well when caught in the rain. I've gotten a ton of compliments on it.

The blue spruce fabric is beautiful and fun. Love the soft, patterned strap and front pocket. However, this bag is not going to work for me functionally. The loose ends of the zipper make is difficult to zip. The end pockets do not go down to the bottom of the bag so they are too shallow to hold water bottles, and even the interior holder does not go to the base of the bag, so anything but the tiniest bottles make it impossible to zip up. Also, I would ditch the horrible cell pocket on the back - the front pocket is great for that and the Velcro catches on and ruins the wearers' clothes! It's so cute I don't want to return it, but these oversights will drive me crazy.

I really like this bag. It has 4 organizer pockets on the inside and one zippered compartment. The zipper on the outside is for nice for ensuring the contents. I love the design on the strap and the texture on the bag. It works for both casual occasions, but can also be a little on the dressier side since it isn't too sporty. The only complaint I have is the two side pockets are very impractical. They aren't deep enough to actually hold anything and the lack of closure at the top makes whatever is in them very likely to escape. Overall I am pleased with the organization, size and style!

I totally agree wit the last post. I like this bag, but would Love it if it was not for the huge keen on the front. I like the color and the style but I have not decided if I am keeping it yet. I don't know if I can get over the label. I hate advertising for companies. I just spent money on the bag, right?

I love this bag in fact I have it in black, and brown and I just bought the turquoise one for summer. It is spacious and holds a ton of stuff. I like the side pockets because I can easily drop my car keys in there and never have to search through the entire purse to find them. The cell pocket in the back is great because I always know where my phone is. I like the fact that I can carry it as a crossbody bag so my hands are free to carry my camera. It is a great bag for the person on the go and it even is spacious enough to carry my iPad. It is just the right depth as I do not like a purse that is too deep because then I have to search for everything. This one has many pockets on the inside to keep everything organized. I cannot wait for my summer color to arrive. This is a great purse at a great price!

Brands I'd also recommend: Not sure I only like the keen one and that's all I've purchased.

This served as a gift for our daughter-in-law at her suggestion. She was delighted and is finding it meets her needs very well. Attractive and utilitarian. She's a young mother. I appreciated the free shipping and your willingness to facilitate returns if we were not satisfied. Thank you.

The velcro strap on the back pocket is gone! The end pockets are deep enough to keep a pen handy. I love all the pockets inside & outside. Everything has a place. I love that the purse can be a cross body or a shoulder bag. I have the black & in certain lighting it looks purple or blue. The bottom has a little padding. Zappos shipping was so fast. I ordered it before lunch & it was at my house the next afternoon!

This is a great bag!! It's a good size for all my goodies and has pockets in the outside for keys and my phone. I really like the color (and I've had several compliments in it as well). It's easy to adjust the strap for however you feel like wearing it or hanging it. The quality is nice, the bottom is thicker so the bag doesn't lose it's shape when it's not full. Overall great bag!

I love this purse because it isn't too deep I can find everything I need, it's spacious I love the extra pockets on either end on the outside they are perfect to hold my keys in or sunglasses in. I love the strap; it's very comfortable and long enough to adapt to any length. This is a hands free purse. I use it for traveling and everyday use. I love this bag! I like the pocket in the back for my cell phone, this way I always know where it is. A very nice feature.

Brands I'd also recommend: The smaller travel version works great also

I just received this in the mail this week and I love it! It's lightweight, soft and so handy! The mouth of the bag opens up wide so it's easy to get all your things out of it! The strap is soft and comfortable! I'm always on a quest for the perfect bag and this just may be it!

This is a great bag. It's the perfect size for a purse. It has several organizational pockets in main compartment. I really like that it zips closed as opposed to bags with flaps where things can fall out. My only complaint is that the pockets on the outside of the bag are kind of impractical. The zipper one in the front is fine, but the two exposed side pockets are really too shallow to hold anything securely and since there is no way to fasten them shut, they are relatively useless. Also, the cell phone pocket in the back of the purse is quite snug if your iphone has any sort of rubberized cover on it! On the bright side, I love the color and the strap is really nice and comfortable. Overall I am very satisfied with this purchase and it is one of the best organizer bags I've come across in a while.

This is perfect for a busy mom, like me. It's very roomy, and I love the detail on the strap. Love it! The color of the bag looks more like a dark denim blue.

I bought the purse to take on a trip to Paris with my daughter. Thought I'd try it out first, and was disappointed with the side pockets and the phone pocket. The side pockets are worthless and won't hold even a small item. The phone pocket is quite small and won't hold a smart phone. I still like the purse for it's roominess. I can carry my iPad with no problem. Hope Keen changes the pockets and makes them more efficient.

This is a great casual purse. I was looking for a decent size cross body and this fits the bill. I agree with the other reviewer about the loose ends of the zipper.I have been using it for about a month now and do really like it despite the zipper.

Roomy bag for summer or casual use. I like that it is not a huge square tote bag, but doubles as a purse and holds a lot. A paperback, a New Yorker, an umbrella, along with the usual (wallet, iPhone, sunglasses). My one gripe is that it's not structured enough to stand up on its own. The interior pockets are useful, but I still use my sanity-saver, the Purseket Junior, to hold lipgloss, folding brush, pens, and other small stuff so that everything doesn't sink to the bottom of a bag.

This bag is a good size for me for travel and has many useful features, but has a couple of drawbacks that keep it from being a 5-star bag. Pros: The bag is comfortable to carry and is roomy enough (without being gigantic) that I can even squeeze in a lightweight sweater when need be. The 'hidden' zip pocket on the front flap is a good size for keeping such things as extra camera batteries or memory cards, spare cash, hotel key, etc. The various little pocket and elastic things inside work ok for holding things like sunscreen, though I think pockets would be better substitutes for the elastic sections. Cons: First, it would be great if there were a full-width zip or open pocket on the back side to hold flight documents, postcards, and other papers that I want to keep flat. Second, the two end pockets are practically useless -- too shallow to hold a water bottle, too open to hold anything else. If the pockets had a velcro or tab flap or tab or an elastic top, they could be used for many things. As it is, anything you put into them fall out if the bag tips. I'd like to see one of them used as the cellphone pocket. Third, very optional, but a water-resistant finish would be nice. When I got caught in the rain, things inside the bag weren't protected well.

It's a nice bag. Good size for carrying a few things when I'm traveling (like a guide book, camera, water, etc). There are several pockets inside to help organize smaller things. It's pretty casual looking, and I wish the outer pockets were deeper so I could keep a water bottle on the outside, but other than that, it's great!
