RFID Mini Wallet
Love my Bliss in Gray Poplar - also works great as a cute clutch when you're going out to dinner ;)

I really wanted to give this five stars. The bag is water resistant, has nice outer pockets that they advertise as good for storing an umbrella but actually I use to hold my 16 oz. water bottle and thermos, respectively. It’s large enough inside to hold a ton of stuff, and the hidden zipper in the back outer pocket is actually very useful for storing small items (lip gloss, earbuds, etc.). It’s aesthetically pleasing and the black keeps it from looking like a diaper bag. That said, there are two major issues and I would return the bag if I could but I didn’t discover them until after I’d started using it. 1. The bag does not have a reinforced bottom, so does not stand on its own. I worked around this by taking out the bottom from another homemade bag I was no longer using, but for the price, there shouldn’t be a need for a workaround. 2. This is the really frustrating one: The straps slip. It hasn’t fallen off my shoulder (yet), but inevitably, the strap the ends up farthest from your body when you have it over your shoulder slides down, and I end up constantly hitching it up or keeping my shoulder raised to prevent it from falling down, which wreaks havoc on my back. Some grippy material around the straps would easily fix this problem. If you can overlook those two things, though, I’d actually really recommend this bag. It’s one of those rare totes that actually zips closed, holds a bunch of stuff, and still provides enough internal and external compartments to keep everything from getting jumbled together.

Very good quality. Cute bag. The strap seems fine to me. Perfect for travel which is why I purchased it.

I got this purse to replace The Sak Iris Smartphone Crossbody. I like small purses that I can keep on my person. If someone tries to steal it, I am going with it!!! This is my first Haiku bag. It is small but a little larger than I am used to. I could no longer fit my Galaxy S8+ in my Sak crossbody. The strap length is perfect, shortened all the way for me, so it rides almost right under my arm, & sits near my chest. I can easily pull out credit cards in that position. I needed the credit card slots. I hate having to pull out a wallet to get my credit cards or drivers license. It has plenty of room for me. Others have stated all they put in theirs. I got the Mushroom color & it is a perfect neutral. Amazon sells this also in many more colors than Zappos presently has, but Zappo's had the best price & return policy. The only thing I am not please with is the end of the zipper. It either hangs out (& it looks ridiculous) or you tuck it in & it is not perfect, even seaming. I got it on sale, so will just deal with it.

I hesitated to buy this because the photos make it look awkward but the photos were wrong. Haiku is my go-to brand for everyday bags. They always have great pockets, convenience and durable fabric. This bag is no exception. I'm a 4'11" 40 something woman and I needed an every day bag to carry my things to work and school. This bag looks great and suits my lifestyle. Another home run from Haiku!

This is a great, light-weight bag. I do wish Haiku had added a fabric placket along the sides of the zipper, allowing the top to be as wide as the bottom panel. This simple change would allow a lot more room in the bag. I love the card slots with the long slip pocket, but it would be more convenient if they were on the outside wall of the bag. I'd I'd also keep a long slip pocket on the section divider panel. I realize I'm particular, but these small changes would make the bag perfect!

I was disappointed that the curved zipper compartment in the front of the purse did not allow for my phone to fit in there. The curve took away from the amount of room in that pocket. The other disappointment was the position of the shoulder strap. Unlike a typical purse, the strap, comes off the back flat and the material for the strap wasn't appealing.

Great bag. Holds a surprising amount of stuff. In the Zappos photo the bag appears to be mauve but the base color is actually gray.

Pros: This bag has a nice wide strap that is very comfortable. I can pile this bag full of stuff and it doesn't feel very heavy on my shoulder. I ordered both the brown and green bags and they are both cute bags if you like this casual, outdoorsy style. The brown/tan bag looks less casual than the green bag. They are made in part with recycled water bottles if that is important to you. The fabric seems to be quite water repellent. Cons: The bag is smaller than it looks. Once you put a few small items in the interior side pockets, half of the base is full and there is little room for much else. For example, I can put a small water bottle, a small kleenex packet, my keys, and a small wallet in it, but then if I want to add a small umbrella or light jacket I have to pile it on top of my other stuff and the bag is overflowing and it's difficult to locate anything. Also, there is no firm base to this bag, so the bottom sags as soon as you set anything in it. I cut a sturdy piece of cardboard that fits inside to act as a base, and the bag now stands upright and doesn't sag when I lift it.

This item is stylish and well made. I was able to fit 7 cards (including drivers license), money, and a few coins on the zipper pouch and still it is pretty slim and lightweight and fits in your hand. Also, there is a short poem on a strip of fabric stitched on the inside where you’d put dollar bills, I liked that detail very much. Very pleased with this product.

I think this is an average lunch carrier. I could buy a similar one in quality at a grocery or big box store. I believe that the description may have said it would fit a six pack but in reality it is too small for a six pack. It’s cute and does not stand out as a lunch box so I may keep it for carrying snacks with me (I bring my own food just about everywhere) while running errands. But for carrying my lunch to work (and sometimes I bring breakfast), it is too small and would not accommodate a drink, a freezer pack, my travel fork, spoon and knife, or my napkin.

Love this little purse, I’m so done with lugging a big purse around and the cross bodies can be annoying when wearing a big coat. This is perfect for all my basics and a sturdy hand strap. My iPhone 8 Plus fits too!!!
Zappos Reviewer on September 12, 2018
Perfect for travel. Light, fits normal handbag stuff plus extras like water bottle, portable charger. A bit big and casual for my everyday work bag but great size for my recent trip.
Zappos Reviewer on September 07, 2018
Super cute bag, and I was thrilled to see an Emily Dickinson quote stitched under the flap! Not big enough for my sketch book (I think it's 10" x 12" maybe?) but it is big enough that I can carry the sketch book without zipping the main pouch closed. Used to love Mosey bags before they went out of business, so this is a great alternative. Just wish they had one slightly larger!

Ive has this purse for two years and returning for another as my kids have stained the first too badly to fix! I originally purchased it for a family trip to Italy and it worked so well that I kept using it once we returned home. The pockets on the end will hold a bottle of water, I like the flap as I feel it discourages pick-pocketers and it is easy to put my sunglasses away. I can also stuff my iPad in there to go to meetings.

This wallet is awesome. Bought one for myself and husband. Works well, minimal, exactly what we wanted!!

This bag cannot be done justice by a 5 star review. I used this bag on a recent trip to CA, covering Universal, Disneyland, SeaWorld and the San Diego Zoo. The bag is perfectly sized and offers plenty of pockets and organization. The fabric is beautiful but tough and doesn't show dirt (I had the Gray Poplar). The vertical pocket on the side fit my cell phone perfectly and was actually my favorite part of the bag as it enabled me to quickly grab my phone for those photo opps that presented themselves. It was comfortable as a cross-body and I never felt as though the strap was digging into my chest/shoulder. It also fit into my lap or under seats on rides. Don't hesitate to buy this bag!

I love love love this bag!

fun little bag with room for everything. I appreciate that a couple of the compartments have zippers, since I tend to leave my bags open and then my spouse chides me for inviting pickpockets. my only quibble is that the strap feels like a car seatbelt, but I love everything else.
Zappos Reviewer on August 28, 2018
LOVE LOVE LOVE this purse. I had a large purse for years, decided to downsize. I wanted something that could fit my phone, hand lotion and lipstick. This purse fits the bill and MORE! It has slots for your credit cards/ID. There is a zippered slot on the back that can be used for money. It’s great too because it has a wristlet strap and convertible crossbody strap. Most days I have it adjusted to a shoulder bag but it’s mice to be able to change it to a crossbody for shopping and traveling.

Haiku is a great company and this is an awesome bag! It's a great size - compact but fits everything I need.
Zappos Reviewer on August 25, 2018
Love this wallet! Perfect size for smaller bags. The width for money and for the cards are perfect, as well as the little pouch for coins.
Jen on August 15, 2018
I'm on my second one of these because the zipper was finally starting to give out on the first one after many years of use. It's the perfect size. Small and easy to carry everywhere (I love the cross body strap) but will hold keys, lip balm, 2 cell phones, kindle, and passport, along with cash, credit cards, pens - really everything you need. I bought one for my mom after she left her purse in a restaurant. They ended up finding her purse, but she decided to keep using this bag because it's such a great design. And if you just wear it cross body all the time you're much less likely to forget it somewhere.
Zappos Reviewer on August 15, 2018
This is a great bag. Styling and fabric are beautiful. It is a little smaller than I anticipated, and my S'well bottle doesn't fit in the outside pocket like I hoped, but generally it is good. My only complaint is that when wearing it as a backpack, the strap slides quickly through the grommet when you take it off so you have to fiddle with the straps quite a bit. But still love it!
