I thought this bag would be large enough but it is not. Seems to be nice quality.

I like, but don’t love, this bag. It’s my 2nd purchase of this style; I used the last one for two years. What I love about this bag is that you can expand it. It’s useful when flying, because I Can for my laptop, books, and even my purse in the bag in its larger form. The style is also okay, although I got the red and white and after one day it started to remind me of a Rorschach and now I can’t get that image out of my head. The biggest downsides about this bag that it is surprising Kavu did not update in this year’s version are 1) there is no zipper latch and 2) there are no useful pockets. The zipper continually slides down because there’s no latch, which opens the bad to it’s expanded form. This is annoying on its own, but also because it’s hard to close the zipper without snagging the fabric and it’s definitly elicited a few curses when I’m needing to catch a flight or make it to class and a chunk of the bag is stuck in the zipper. Yes, the problem could also be me. The lack of pockets is strange and unhelpful. I have a Herschel tote and it is amazing because it has an outer pocket that fits my keys and phone and also two large pockets Inside.

Absolutely love it! I wore it during a music festival in Tennessee last weekend. It held three beverages comfortably and the slight padding on the back of the bag kept my back from getting cold due to the drinks being in my bag. We hiked through a very shallow river, it started torrentially raining and nothing in my bag got wet. I mean buckets of rain pouring from the sky. It was crazy. The bag also got some orange Tennessee mud on it and I was actually able to scrub it out of the fabric. This bag is amazing. Love love love!

Such a perfect travel bag! All day sightseeing and I can’t believe how much I could get into it.

Love it! More comfortable strap than the similar Patagonia sling. Grey seems to be made of a different material than the other colors and I like it better. Won’t disappoint!

Kavu's are great bags for traveling, as well as everyday use. They prevent what I call, "pocketbook overload," leading to sore shoulders. Love the pattern in the fabric of this bag. It's a perfect size for all of my needs. Just wish the "rope" part of the strap was in front of the bag and not at my back. Since it's 100% cotton, probably won't last as long as my other Kavu bags, which I've always been able to throw in the washer. The Zippit's instructions read, "Spot clean only." Hmmmm......

I didn't even use this bag, am sending it back. The flaps that cover the zippers are all wrinkled and don't lie flat. Even once flattened, they overlap some of the other pockets. When you "sling" the bag around to your front to access it, the small pockets end up upside down. Canvas fabric and rope strap cause too much friction for a smooth sling around to the front. It may work for some people but for me there are too many elements that need some tweaking to make it truly a convenient and easy to use bag, which I think is the intent.

Pretty sturdy and colors are true to the picture provided. The zipper pocket will fit a smart phone even if the “cell” pocket doesn’t.

Planning to use this as my day bag while traveling in Europe later this month. Just big enough (without being too big) for essentials, a bottle of water and a light sweater. Love the crossbody carrying option!

It’s a cute but very small fanny pack, which will basically fit a phone and a tiny wallet and perhaps a lip gloss or two. Also, I’m not a tiny person by any means (women’s size 4-6) but the waist/hip strap is too big even when adjusted to the very smallest size. It’s ok with jeans but still hangs fairly low. It’s definitely made for someone with a large hip and waiste-line.

I love this bag! It's very stylish (think hobo tote) and lightweight. I bought mine last year in the Spring Hodgepodge print, and it's so artsy looking. It's the perfect size for everyday use, so I just carry an extra compact market bag inside if I need to do more heavy lifting while on the go. If you are addicted to totes like I am, I think you'll like this bag. It's also reasonably priced, and I like the added detail of the rope tassel. Cute!

This bag is so cool. I got it as a present for my girlfriend and wanted my own as soon as i took it out of the packaging. the size is perfect for a day out, you can fit a book, sunglasses, cover up, and even a change of shoes (depending on the style). There are pockets everywhere and the rope strap is very functional and sporty.
