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.

I returned this because of the strap. I didn't look at the picture closely enough and when the bag arrived, I was disappointed to see that it was made of the same fabric as the bag, and I knew I wouldn't care for it. I prefer a webbed strap.

Perfect Size Kavu for EveryDay Carry for me! I have another original size Kavu, however for me it's just too large for my Every Day Type of Purse Carry. I use it more for the beach and longer trips. That being said this Kavu Mini is Perfect! I'm so happy with this purchase. I'm able to carry my Kavu wallet/clutch, another pouch, personal items, sunglasses, my phone and chapstick...I may also be able to fit my daily field notes journal inside as well, however I haven't tried yet. I'm writing this review to let anyone know if the original Kavu is a little too big for your Everyday type purse, this may be just right for you! The pattern is a beautiful touch!

Love this Wallet/Clutch! It's a bit of a waterproof type feeling material, which I think will hold up nicely! It provides ample amount of pockets inside for all of my credit cards, cash and another pocket where I keep my personal items like band-aids and such. It's also super cute with it's fun print! There is also a nice handle on the back to make it easily carried when needed. It's just a really nicely made little clutch. Fits perfectly inside both my standard and mini Kavu Bags!

I chose the wilderness print. Looks even nicer in person! Love the comfort of the strap. My iPhone 6 (with an Otter box) fits well in the front small zipper pocket, and there’s still room for my wallet. I am really happy with my purchase.

This is a nice size bag and well made. It just didn't work for my needs. I wanted to use it for a Therapy Dog gear and my folding mat didn't fit in it very well. It's well made and lovely colors. If I hadn't wanted for a specific use I would have kept it. Very cute for general use.

Bought for my mom to replace a dark green one she had and I don’t think she liked this as much. The pattern is also really bright so it doesn’t match everything.

Perfect small bag - easily holds my iPhone X, cards, ID, chapstick, and sunglasses (if I set them in there correctly). I really don't like the carabiner clip; it's cheaply made and you have to make sure it's actually clicked closed because it often gets offset and doesn't close on its own. I got the geometric print and it is quite a bit brighter than pictured - it's actually neon!

Great bag for going on a day trip or a theme park. It’s a bit too utilitarian for me to wear every day, but great for when I want to carry a few extra things comfortably.

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!
