Got this bag for our Germany trip and am really thrilled with it! I could easily carry a water bottle, jacket, glasses, and a multitude of other items that accumulate during the trip! I have no complaints - thrilled with it!

I wrote my first review on this bag, the Keen Brooklyn II, in August 2012. I wrote it before I had used the bag. I have now taken it on trips to Great Britain three times and actually use it every day at home. I've just ordered my 4th one! I will have 4 different colors. I am not into girly bags, preferring function over fashion, and this bag is fabulous. It has all kinds of pockets and areas, is large enough to get a book and/or a tablet in, and still has room to carry and arrange all sorts of other stuff, plus being able to wear it cross body or on the shoulder is another plus! I don't need four because they wear out. They are quite durable. I keep buying more because I'm afraid that someday they will totally discontinue the style and that would be just too, too sad, so I need to stock up in case that should happen! So, in case you have not figured it out, I really like this bag, and I'm old enough to have owned quite a few bags in my life for comparison!

I love this bag. I took it to Europe (Ireland and England) with me and it was perfect. I could wear it across my body and the flap kept everything safe. My sister saw it and wants one of her own!

I love this bag! I carry it nearly every day and it is roomy enough for all my things and has plenty of zippered pockets to secure my belongings. I've received many compliments on this bag and highly recommend it.

Great bag! Lots of pockets to organize your stuff and I believe a thief would be hard pressed to get it away from you. Strong cross body strap. The nylon fabric will last a very long time. I love it!

The material is waterproof, lightweight, and hides dirt well. I can fit a large sunglass case, water bottle, and essentials with out too much bulk. It is larger than a dainty purse but small enough that it isn't in the way during walking. Great purchase and high quality.

I'm purse picky, and after having this bag for a few weeks now, I must say I love it. My main frustration with my old, cavernous purse was digging around for keys or a pen, but everything being lost in the abyss. This bag has tons of pockets, so I can keep my things organized - I just have to remember where I put them. The other thing that I hated about my last purse was that it fell off my shoulder all the time if I was holding one of my kids' hands or carrying them. I love the adjustable strap on this, so I can wear across my body - or you can keep it short and wear it on your shoulder. I love everything about this bag, it's so functional, but super cute at the same time. Perfect for a practical gal like me!

I love it. I love that it's super tough but looks like a softer material. I love all the pockets and the comfy strap and the design on it. I like the orange. I like that the front uses a magnet not velcro so I don't have to hear velcro ripping every time I open it, but it stays closed very well. I don't know if I miss the pocket for the phone on the back since I've never had that, it's hard to say. But overall I really love it.

I bought this bag specifically to take on a trip to Europe. I knew I'd be walking a lot and I wanted a cross-body that had enough room for things but wasn't too huge. This one had great reviews and I'm glad I bought it! It was perfect for fitting travel documents, wallet, water bottle, phone, and a few snacks for walking around. I love the way it looks, too. After I got back my sister liked it so much she stole it to take on a trip to Japan. Even after being around the world, it doesn't even look dirty! I still use it as an every-day purse most of the time. The only negative I could say about it is the strap rubbed my shoulder a bit raw some days - but the bag was also packed full so it was quite heavy, and I wore it for 8+ hours.

I love everything about this bag! However, it is listed as black. In person the bag is much, much closer to a dark denim blue. There is far less white in the pattern as well. I ended up liking the color even though it wasn't exactly what I expected. It goes great with jeans & has gotten many compliments.

LOVE this bag! Used it as a travel bag on a recent vacation to Europe. Lots of functional pockets. The main compartment was a good size and had enough space for a folded up raincoat (or light sweater), umbrella, and water bottle without looking too bulky. I have been using it as my everyday bag since getting back from vacation and have been getting a lot of compliments. I also love the back cell phone pocket. I tend to lose things in my purse, so having the outside cell phone pocket was perfect for me.

Very happy with my new handbag. Nice cross over the shoulder strap. Enough pockets to be organized but not too many as to be confusing, and large enough for all of my "stuff"!

This is a GREAT crossbody bag! It is spacious AND stylish! I love the adjustable patterned strap, too! It has great pockets and compartments inside and can be wiped down inside if anything spills inside. It is a perfect size- not too big and not too small.

I bought this bag for a two week backpacking trip around Turkey and SE Asia. It worked great. The strap was really comfortable and it was large enough to hold what I needed for the day (including my DSLR camera and a water bottle) but not to big and bulky. I would recommend it.

Great bag! This bag is like a clown car, you can fit so much in. When I empty it I really feel like I don't know how it all fits. Love all the pockets. Not so crazy about the color it says Khaki but it's more of a burnt orange. To me it looks just like the photo which I don't think is khaki. Either way I have had this bag for about a year and it goes everywhere with me. Fits an iPad or 2 easily (sometimes I end up carrying my husbands) and lots of other stuff too. I am back on here now to buy another color, that's how great this bag is.

Love this bag! I bought it to double as a purse and a diaper bag. It's big enough to hold all the supplies and goodies I need for my toddler. I love the color and the funky strap. It's just my style and is meeting the needs I have perfectly.

I should have paid attention to the photos and not the video. I do love the videos and usually find them very helpful, but in this case, it is not one of the same bag. There is no multimedia pocket on the back; the larger pocket on the back has a snap, not a magnetic one. The flap on the front has a magnetic snap, not a Velcro strip. I was looking to get something with more room than the Montclair mini which I love and have used for the past year but it just doesn't have the space I need sometimes. Other than being disappointed that the media pocket didn't exist the bag is working well for me -- carries all of the items I take in the Montclair mini and there's plenty of room for my epipen and glass case as well as the notebook I like to have with me, and there are still empty pockets!

Great go-everywhere bag! It's light with lots if pockets, maybe even too many. The pocket on the front flap would be better if it were bigger. Can't get my hands in it to find small items. Otherwise would definitely recommend it for casual days.

I got this bag for a 2 week trip to France and England - and it performed beautifully! Lightweight but sturdy, tons of storage but not bulky, and very comfortable to wear for long periods of time. I also liked that it didn't code "super sporty" or "Tourist." I was able to wear it to nicer restaurants and not feel like it stuck out like a sore thumb. I have continued to use it since I got home - it is just that convenient! Love it!

I bought these sneakers on the recommendation that they would work well for my Zumba classes. I find they fit my feet well and the nylon material is forgiving of my bunion. One small note, the ties are rather tight and can't be loosened as much as I'd like due to some plastic pieces that keep the laces in place. As I have a high arch, I find that it sometimes creates more friction than I care for across the top of my foot. Overall, I am happy with this shoe and would recommend it for aerobic classes as a good option.
