I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this purse! It is actually my second one of the same style. I also have the mint green. Yes... I'm certain there are more sexy and exciting purses out there than this humble Baggallini, BUT it is an absolute pleasure to carry. Everything fits perfectly and it is so easy and light for shopping when used as a crossbody. My only disappointment with the bag is the lack of internal zipper pockets. Normally Baggallinis are full of little surprises like that. (Those of you that are experienced with the brand know exactly what I'm talking about.) The outer pockets, however make up for it with room for a water bottle, umbrella, car keys, cell phone at easy reach. This is an extremely functional purse!

This bag is not worth the money. It's much smaller than it seems in the photos and on the mannequin. The bag looks cheap, especially the strap.

This is a great bag for during the day in summer. It is so much bigger than I expected, especially after reading the reviews (it is hard to tell precisely how to measure a hobo). A water bottle fits easily in the outer compartments, and the inside holds everything that goes in my regular/smaller daily purse plus sunglasses, sunblock, binoculars (or a book, depending on the destination), and more. I got it for less than half the listed price in the sand color, which is a nice light neutral. This is a casual, dressed-down, utilitarian bag. Nothing to look at, but the water bottle compartment is worth the price of admission - I had been searching high and low for that. If I could redesign it, I would put more small compartments inside and/or split the area into more than one major compartment - things can get a bit lost. I am also not sure how to wash it - unlike a LeSportsac, I do not think that it is machine washable.

I love baggallini bags. Just got the hobo tote. Love all the room and compartments, shoulder or cross body strap length. I thought the tomato was going to be brighter red, has orange tint to it but will still love using it. Plan on using it it for travel, plenty of room for camera and other necessities on day trips.

I love this bag! I thought I needed leather, but this bag is great: light weight, roomy, and I love the little pouch that attaches to a cord at the top of the bag. Now I never have to go searching for lip stick or chapstick!

I was specifically looking for a traveling bag that would hold my 32 oz nalgene water bottle. This bag fits the bill, you can fit one in each exterior pocket on either end of the bag but it does make the bag pretty out if balance. The cheetah fabric is nice, I thought the plain black was a little cheap looking and this bag just felt more like a diaper bag than a purse so I am returning it.

This bag has an absurdly short strap. While Baggallini bags have always given more than enough length in their cross body straps for me, this one cuts right under my breast. What were they thinking? Otherwise nice bag.

I bought my Baggallini Hobo Bag from Zappos a few weeks ago and would return it if I could. This bag is made with the quality of products of my other bags but is not well designed. There are very few options for organization inside the bag. The strap is too short to be worn across the chest. I am very disappointed in this bag for the design and price.

Plenty of room in this bag but still light even if full of stuff! The color is true and the strap is exactly the right amount of adjustable. I can wear it across my body or more like a purse. Lot of pockets and the contrasting lining makes finding things in the bottom a breeze. I <3 this bag!

The Baggallini Hobo Tote caught my attention while making another selection.Then I choose the BHTote and I must say it was one of the best selection that I made. The quality of the material,the design, the price were all outstanding, and as a bonus was the customer service of Zappo, who re invented the personal approach with the customer. Well done.

I loved the purse, nice structure, zippered compartments. I sent it back, it was just a big too big for me. I knew I wouldn't use it. For anyone who wants a light weight, larger bag it would be perfect.

Brands I'd also recommend: Tump,MarcJacobs

I bought this bag to use specifically for air travel, having gone through several bags that haven't worked out. This bag fills the bill nearly perfectly. There's a place for a water bottle, a glasses case, and a novel in the exterior pockets, and the interior is big enough to carry my wallet, a small bag for "stuff," an inflatable lumbar pillow, a light neck scarf, and a snack. It probably could also hold a travel umbrella and still not be so heavy as to create neck pain while walking around an airport. My only complaint is that there isn't a zipper or snap on the outside front pocket, which is where I would carry my passport and boarding pass. It turns out that my passport fits in the zippered coin purse with the attached strap, and it's long enough pull out of the interior and place in the front pocket.

I'm sort of a hoarder of baggalini bags. Love them all but...this bag is the best traveling bag yet. Carries my iPad, all of my junk, two bottles of water and everything else you can imagine. I bought the Pacific blue. Beautiful color and goes with everything. Can be carried on your shoulder or as I prefer as a body crossover.

This is my first Baggallini purchase and it wont be my last! I was looking for something that was appropriate for both work and weekends and this bag fits the bill. I love the black with the cheetah print, it adds some interest to the design. The size is great too, not too big or small.

I initially found this bag because of its color. It's a subtle and not too bright purple. I love the bag! I love the practicality of it. It is well made and holds everything, including a water bottle. I recommend this bag. It is definitely worth the money!

Just what I needed & wanted, delivered quickly. Color shows brighter online than actual bag, which is more of a green. Fortunately, I like the real color better. Great service. Will use Zappos again.

A great travel bag! Got compliments, but more importantly it is the perfect size for traveling. The size is great, it fits all the stuff you'd need for a day out seeing the sights, you can even for a water bottle in the outer side pocket. A great looking and practical bag.

I love my new purse. It s just the right size, feels good both on my shoulder and cross body. It holds everything I need for it to hold and still keeps a good shape. This was my first Baggallini but it won t be my last. I'm not crazy about the bottom zipper on one of the outside pockets. I understand it s there so you can put your purse on your luggage carrier, but I don't travel enough to enjoy that. Instead, I worry about putting something in that pocket without the bottom zipper being closed properly. But for someone who travels, I'm sure it's a very welcome feature and there are plenty of other pockets to keep me as organized as I am capable of being. But most of all, I really like shopping at Zappos. The service is fast and reliable and when there's a problem or a question, there's always an extremely friendly and competent person available by phone to help. That does not seem to be the norm for online shopping venues. I noticed on my last Zappos box that one of the company's core values are printed on the outside. Not my favorite of their values (Create Fun and A Little Weirdness) but a good one nonetheless. I get the very strong impression that Zappos takes these values seriously and their commitment to customer service is remarkable. Amazon could learn quite a bit from Zappos.

This is exactly what I was looking for. I need to hydrate constantly and was always spilling my drink in my nice leather purses. This has deep exterior pockets to keep my drink secure (plus room for my kids' sippy cups), plus the nylon will be forgiving if I do have a spill. There aren't very many interior pockets, but I figured that out with an organizer bag that I clipped to one of the interior hooks for that purpose. The material is lightweight -- this is not a hefty bag -- so keep that in mind. Full of my stuff, it's just right. I wish the shoulder strap were a bit more ergonomic; that's my one complaint.

I love my new Baggallini Hobo Tote but do see two things I would change in order to make it the perfect bag for me. One, I would extend the strap a few inches. I am a tall fairly large women who likes to carry bags over my chest. My bag is able to be carried this way but the strap is a little shorter than I like. Two, it needs at least one inside pocket possibly two. This is my third Baggallini and it is the only one without a center inside zippered pocket and a small side inside pocket.

Brands I'd also recommend: I think Baggallini makes the best bags for casual use.

I bought this to take on a trip as a travel bag and it was smaller than I expected. The good news is that it is a great casual purse. It's lightweight, has a ton of pockets and I don't feel I have to pamper it. I find I use it much more often than my "good" purses which stay home in the closet. What it lacks in style it makes up for in function and durablity.

I bought this as a Xmas present for my daughter. Her trip was delayed so she still has not received it but it looks well made and attractive. I am pleased as punch and as usual Zappos service is unsurpassed.

This bag is great for a larger winter purse. It is my second Baggallini and I have since ordered another style and a tote. Great bargains this time of year.
