Great purse for work or play. I was looking for something to carry my iPad in and it fits, with room left over for everything else.

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.

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!

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 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 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.

Wow, I am so glad I bought this purse! I ordered it on Thursday and it arrived on Friday. The bag is perfect for my trip to Europe - it will be a great carry on for the plane and fits my ipad, some magazines, my wallet, sunglasses, makeup bag, umbrella, snacks, iphone, and a water bottle easily! The fabric is water proof, there are outside pockets, and I love that I can wear it over my shoulder or across my body. I normally only use my Coach leather purses, but I wanted something that was water proof, cross body, and lighter weight but still classy looking, so this is perfect. I went to the baggallini website and love their other purses and will probably buy a few more styles and colors to use on my subway commute to work or to the gym. Probably wouldn't use this as a dressy bag, but it is perfect for day to day stuff.

The bag is smaller than you expect it to be. There are no zippered compartments anywhere. I wanted it for traveling and a paperback book, bottle of water and travel documents along with my wallet, sunglasses and pocket camera did not fit comfortably. Loved the color and like all Baggalini products the outside fabric is great and very light weight. Sorry to have to return it.

Love it so far! Super cute and versatile. Pockets accommodate lots of items, water bottle, etc. Maybe wish there was one inside zipper pocket, but the little pouch is great. Seems durable, hoping it holds up!

I have had this bag for about four months now and I am mostly happy with it, but it is ultimately not exactly what I want in terms of a bag for daily use (I am a grad student in New York City so I usually have to schlepp around my laptop and other miscellany). Cons: Just a little too small for me to easily fit my 13" laptop in. It is also not terribly stylish, but I knew that when I ordered it, it was more for function. I also wish there were zippered pockets on the inside (as opposed to the detachable pouch, which I find is a bit too small to be of my use and just shifts around inside and gets in the way). Pros: Very high quality, well made bag, and very lightweight, which I love, as it gets heavy carrying stuff around New York City all day. Fairly functional (minus the lack of e.g., zippered pockets on the inside). In sum, it is a good bag and I will probably continue to get use out of it (e.g. for traveling) but it is not my dream bag.

Brands I'd also recommend: Tumi, The Sak

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 had this bag for several months (until I exploded a black pen all over the tomato exterior - not the bag's fault!). I had two problems with it: my subway swipe card got demagnetized, which I strongly suspect was because I had been keeping it in the outside pocket with the magnetic clasp. I unstitched the magnets and removed them, but that meant that I couldn't close that pocket. Also a couple of times I got the lining caught in one of the zippers and it took me a long time (about 45 minutes) to slowly work the material out of the zipper. After pen incidents I got a smaller Baggallini that has no magnet, but now I'm going to go with, probably, the Horizon, because it has no magnet closure.

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.

I love my hobo tote (sku7942470) I have since last April. My unhappiness with this great bag is; The pen/pencil holders are too shallow so items will not stay in place .Just a bit deeper would work.Also when traveling and using the slots for credit cards, they would also slip out and end up on the bottom.So still ,maybe not deep enough? I feel like the whole Idea is very good,love a lot about it, but find these frustrating, since idea does not seem to work out,with all item falling to the bottom.

Both sides of the strap frayed to the point of making the bag both unsightly and nearly unusable. Very disappointing.

Sadly, I think I will be returning this bag. It was a little smaller than I expected (though the dimensions are probably right, it was just my own perception). It just about holds my basics, but the pockets are all poorly designed. All the inside pockets are too shallow, and none of the outside pockets are secure. I did not feel like there was anywhere to safely put my cell phone which is disappointing. I was also hoping the back pocket would fit a book, but seemed just shy of being able to hold a normal sized hard back. I have started looking at other brands like Travelon which seem to be lower priced with better features like slash proof fabric, secure straps, and RFID shields. This bag would be ok to use, but for the price point, it should really have been better designed.

Brands I'd also recommend: Travelon
