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.

The main reason I sent it back was the slip pockets were too short for my phone (Samsung Galaxy). I couldn't zip the purse shut. I guess I could have kept my phone in the exterior zip pocket, but that's not where I like to carry it. Also, because of the way the zipper curves up into the handle, it's hard to open the purse enough to really see what's inside.

I like that my phone fit inside even with a protective case on. It has a lot of slits and pockets. I just wish it was a little cuter and it can get lint all over it occasionally.

This purse has so many pockets! I really love the front zipper pocket with the key clip so I can safely stash my keys and yet have enough space for additional items. The back pocket is wonderful for my phone. The interior pockets are perfect for the smaller items I need to carry. There is still enough space in the main compartment for my wallet and any additional items that are too big for the other pockets.

I love the Kavu Sydney Satchel. It is comfortable as a shoulder or crossover bag, light weight, and holds a lot. This is the 4th time I have bought this bag. This is a good quality product, and is durable.

This is my third one of these so obviously I like them. This one has slightly stiffer fabric than my black one and about the same as my navy and cram striped one. I live in a very walkable city (Denver) and use it all the time. Love the herringbone pattern. I can carry a light weight extra rain jacket easily with plenty of room for everything else.

I got this for a daily use bag. It’s smaller than I expected, but holds everything I need without being heavy. I may end up getting the larger version for vacations and anything that would require more space.

I was looking for a lightweight wallet to lighten up my purse. This wallet does the trick. Has enough space for sufficient cards and license. Coin area is easy to get into and room inside for cash and a checkbook if necessary. Glad I found this wallet.

This is THE most convenient little bag!!! It’s so comfortable to wear, easy to access and carries more than you can imagine. I was on the fence about it but finally make the purchase. I couldn’t be happier and I would order other colors.

This is the perfect size bag for a cross body purse, it even expands to hold more items. Only improvement I think it needs, is the shoulder strap could be a touch longer for long torso big busted ladies.

This purse is very well constructed, and has zippered pockets in all the right places. The size works for me, not so big it hits other people as I pass them in a store aisle; and not so small it bulges when every dang thing is super-stuffed into it. The KAVU Satchel is close to the Perfect (casual) Purse. I can get all my necessaries inside and add a teeshirt, now that's saying something! I have bought a KAVU bag every summer--- I think this is my 5th bag, The designs & colors are not European/American, rather more Aussie and Thai. That's ok, I like it. And I often get compliments on the purse.

I have not "moved in" to my new wallet yet but I hope the magnet snap will be tough enough to hold the unit closed securely. I chose the "Pattern Stack" fabric with the thought it would be easier for my old eyes to see it in my black purse or backpack. If I order again I would not pick a style that has vertical or horizontal lines in the fabric as they may have a tendency to not look straight. I think it is a good value for the price. Thanks Zappos.

Was super cute. Could definitely use this as a light purse to carry wallet, phone, and keys. I ended up returning though b/c I think a regular Kavu makes more sense for me since I think I'd prob want to carry a sweater in it also.
