KAVU

KAVU Logo
In 1993 KAVU, Klear Above Visibility Unlimited, was launched with a single product and a strong philosophy - live life to its fullest every day. An entrepreneurial spirit and this philosophy have provided direction for the company since its inception.

Out on the rough, windy waters of the Bering Sea over 13 years ago, KAVU´s Strap Cap was developed. It was a hat that would protect one´s head, keep the sun off the face, and stay on in the most powerful winds. The original Strap Cap is a canvas cap secured by a band of 5000 pound strength webbing allowing for on-head adjustment. Now a signature KAVU piece, the Strap Cap stays on in almost any outdoor condition from Everest to the Zambezi river.

Today and everyday, KAVU creates men's and women's outdoor clothing using a variety of durable, rugged and comfortable fabrics in designs that take people through all the adventures of daily life. KAVU also has an extensive accessory line, including hats, bags, and sunglasses. The company staff and Team KAVU product testers enjoy the pursuit of the outdoors in their own backyard and around the world.

The enthusiasm in the quest for the perfect day still thrives at KAVU, or a KAVU day still drives the company to innovate and inspire outdoor fun through their line.

Really roomy. Wish the straps had a little padding to them so the straps wouldn’t dig into my shoulders. Other than that, a great bag for everyday use! I get a lot of compliments on it

I wish they made these in every color combo! I use it as an everyday wallet but I love that I can grab it and go as a clutch. I can put my phone in there and I love the little wrist strap.

I got this bag store my valuables in when I go to the beach and it is perfect. The main compartment holds my reading glasses, phone, cards and keys. The front pocket has a flap secured with Velcro that carries cash, contact lens case and lip gloss. There is room in the back slip packet for my camera or sun screen. The strap is adjustable and it’s made of cotton so it can be washed when needed. Its just really cute and functional.

I ordered this for my 18 year old daughter who loves to do photo shoots for friends and is not excited about wearing a backpack or fanny pack! She noticed a professional photographer with this bag and asked if she could get one. It arrived the day before her first "official" photo shoot and she was giddy! After the shoot, she said "This is the BEST bag!! WORTH EVERY PENNY!" Its so easy to slide around to the front to change lenses/then slide back to the back! (unlike a backpack) It will be her go to back for this purpose but I'm buying the larger size for me for travel/vacays as its safer than a backpack also as you can easily bring it to front and center when feeling concerned with your surroundings. SO comfy, lots of sections to stay organized. The small one is perfect for day trips holding all necessities and wallet/water bottle etc, and maybe the larger one for longer outings. Will donate our backpacks, keeping these slings instead. Great product!!!

I love this so much. I love the succulent print - wish I could get it for outdoor cushions and an umbrella! This is a great bag, I'm using it as a purse this summer. Lightweight, plenty of room - and even more if you unzip it all around (big enough to hold clothes and such for a weekend). Rope handles are comfy on the shoulder. That said - it has a black lining and is deep... it's hard to see in there! And there's only ONE pocket - near the top of the bag, and basically just big enough to slip my iPhone in. Would appreciate more inside pockets for keys or glasses, for example. So I'm using pouches for other purse-stuff, just so I can find them quickly. Also - the zipper.... the teeth completely separate at the end, when you unzip it, like a parka. When you zip it back up, really make sure it's seated properly, or it will separate. And at the other end, the zipper pull could really use something to keep it in place, when zipped up. Mine unzips itself about 1/2 inch. Not a huge deal, and really, it's a nice bag. KAVU makes a shoulder/cross-body 'satchel' in this print, which might be better for a purse... it has more pockets, including on the outside. But you'll have to visit their site to find it in this print.

Really cute, super functional bag. The adjustable strap makes it so I can carry like a purse or use cross body. It's roomy without being so huge you can't find what you'r looking for. It also has a lot more packets than I expected, which is helpful.

Fantastic backpack. Has room for a water bottle plus any extras, and the outside zipper pocket is big enough for a large phone. Only annoyance is the extra long strap often unrolls and dangles.

This is my second one as my first is a few years old and I wanted to get another one in brighter colors for the summer. The Float Riot pattern does just that! I love all of the pockets and the adjustability. It’s so comfortable that I forget I even have it on. It’s great for weekend, parks, travel, the beach, and just daily use. It’s a quality product and holds up over time.

I love this bag! Perfect for a city vacation. I get shoulder pain from traditional purses and this bag really helped prevent that after 3 full days of sight-seeing.

This bag is just what I was looking for. I thought the regular sized KAVU bag was too big, and I already have a bigger backpack. I wanted just a small bag to take on outings and outdoor concerts. It's just the right size for carrying a wallet, a small notebook, sunglasses, phone, and other personal items like chapstick and sunscreen, and fits on my back nicely without being heavy or bulky. I think the cord/rope style strap is comfortable and doesn't rub. The small front zip pocket is the perfect size for sunglasses when inside. A small water bottle fits inside of the main compartment, but not my big 24oz... which is fine as I intended this bag for light duty. The bag is very well made, canvas is sturdy, stitching looks good, buckle is heavy duty. The colors and pattern are also super cute. A regular plastic water bottle fits just fine. My only complaint is that I wish it had a water bottle pocket on the outside.

Really loving my new Kavu bag! I love the cross body style. It saves my shoulder and is easier to access than a backpack because you can just slide it around to the front. I love the front zip pocket for my phone, then there's another one on top perfect for keys or an energy bar. Then there's a side pocket I use for lipgloss, dental floss, and mom stuff like bandaids and wipes, and then the main pocket I use for my wallet, sunglasses case and notebook. I got a really punchy yellow color and I love it for spring/summer! It adds a fun splash!

This purse is so soft and adorable! It's the perfect size for essentials. The inside material is a bit crinkly and cheap feeling, so I won't be over-filling it. The strap can be used as a crossbody, lays right at my waist above my hip (I'm 5'8). Overall, super happy with this purse and glad I purchased it!

Great color! Love the Peony. It goes well with the Luminous color Kavu Rope bag. Contrasting , yet complimentary colors. This light canvas type wallet is perfect with many compartments without being too big. A couple areas for bills, credit cards and change make it perfect. Love this wallet!

This Kavu Rope bag is awesome. Rad, hella stylish and rockin fun to use everyday for everything. I love this style sling backpack because it’s light, comfortable and has many compartments. After owning one, I now own 5 in different patterns and colors. The neon yellow green is so bright and goes with every color one wears. Instead of matching the walletI I bought from Kavu, I got a bright pink. The two colors make me smile. Go for this bag. Compliments from strangers abound comes when wearing this Kavu Rope bag.
