This is a really great crossbody handbag. I really love all of the organization that comes with the bag. I have another Kipling bag and really prefer them as they have allot of organization and are very lightweight. I would prefer a wider strap but understand that it is the width that it is due to it being a thinner handbag. I also like that the strap is adjustable and enjoy the berry color I got for spring/summer. I think that this handbag holds allot without it feeling too heavy. While being a thinner handbag it is still able to stand up on its own. This would be a good handbag to take traveling. I always switch out my handbags after a few months of use but I have the feeling I will be using this all summer long.

Great wallet! This wallet is very light but comes with tons of organization. It matches my pink Alvar handbag perfectly.

I am delighted I bought this backpack. It fits my laptop, my agenda, lunch, coffee cup and everything I used to carry in my purse. I used to pull a rolling suitcase and carry my large tote on my shoulder and lunchbox in my hand. It was acceptable as long as I didn't have to get to upper floors. I like to take the stairs, but all the stuff I had to carry made it too hard. Now I have everything in the backpack, don't need the elevator anymore! Love the navy blue colour, the silver zippers and the navy monkey. It has a ton of pockets so my stuff is nicely organized. My husband is envious, I can see how easy Father`s day will be this year!

Perfect! I was looking for a larger waist bag that would hold more without looking too bulky The Presto is very roomy, and since it spreads out over a larger area of the waist it doesn't look overly bulky when being used as a fanny pack. I found that it adjusts easily, and also works fine as a shoulder bag. Since I like to hold the bag up high and close to the body for security, I didn't need to re-adjust from the waist bag setting to be used this way. It would probably need to be lengthened a little for a crossbody however. I'll still probably use it as a waist bag most of the time for hands-free use. I really like the helpful little key leash clip in the main compartment as well.

I have been using my Kipling Syro Crossbody as my travel purse for several years and I am very happy with it. But... when I saw this Angie, I thought that maybe it was time for new travel purse... change for the sake of change. I like everything about it except those two teeny weeny zipper pockets on the front. IMO they are totally useless. Room for a piece of paper or something really really small... and even then you have a hard time getting things out. These pockets are purely for decoration and I need all pockets and compartments to serve a useful function. It's typical Kipling quality and like my other Kiplings, especially my Syro, will probably last for years and still look good. I returned it and have decided to continue using my travel companion, my Syro. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

I ordered the Galaxy Twist color. I was expecting it to be a pretty matte pattern of grey and black, but in person, it was a monstrosity of silver sparkle - very shiny. I like the style of the bag and it seemed like it would have be very functional; just wish it wasn't sparkly. Anyways, I ended up returning it. Customer service was great. Return and refund was seamless. Just wished I could have gotten back the $25 rewards code I used to buy this.

This is a nicely sized wallet that has lots of places for cards, money and I.D. On the side with the fold-over snap tab, there is a good-sized mesh ID pocket and a flap with three vertical card slots. When you turn the flap over, there is a second mesh ID pocket as well as an additional horizontal card slot. The bill pocket is fairly deep which also helps keep your money nice and secure. On the zipper side, there are three compartments for coins, additional bills, and other miscellaneous items. In addition to coins, I've used it for various things such as stamps, band-aids, small eye pencil, lip balm, compact comb, etc. You could also fit a few keys as well, making this a good grab-and-go item when you don't want to carry a larger bag. It's a very nice, practical and handy wallet - and very cute too!

I was so hoping to use this as my out and about travel purse. Unfortunately, the two 'small'zippered compartments are totally useless as far as I am concerned. You can fit a lipstick or a few pieces of paper in them, but it is so small that it is a pain to retrieve anything. They are mere decoration. My old Kipling which I have used for years and there is no need to replace it, is far superior to the Angie...sorry old standby - I was shopping just for the sake of shopping.... I am returning the Angie.

Finally. I found the perfect smaller Kipling petite bag just right for my size and frame, 5'0", and full figure sz 16. This bag is great for the quick Saturday errands, fits nicely in the gym bag, slips easily into my Kipling Experience Laptop backpack, and will accommodate the Kipling New Teddi wallet or the New Money wallet in one of the two outer compartments. I like that the top zipper is in a dyed-to-match color of the bag, instead of the signature silver, giving it a sleek, softer look. And when you zip it open, there's a center silver zip compartment with a 7" opening. In total, 5 pockets that keep my stuff organized in a great small bag. The 5/8" wide strap has a 26" drop, a 52" total length strap..enough to carry as crossbody for my frame! Or, adjusted down as a shoulder bag, of course! This is my 11th Kipling, and I love 'em all, from my rollaway Alcatraz, my large Alvars, the Art tote, my vintage convertible crossbody/messenger bag, etc., right down to my many wallets....I can't get enuf! And it all started with the vintage hybrid crossbody/messenger, in 1998, with steel blue color fuzzy monkey! LOVE.

This is a compact bag with lots of organization. It is lightweight and even though it is fairly small, it has lots of room to carry everything I need including a full size wallet, sunglasses and more in the bag's main compartment. I like the 3 zipper compartments on the outside of the bag - two small ones and a full size one behind the 2 small ones. One word of caution: I bought "galaxy twist" thinking it was a black and white tweed. Wrong. It is a black and silver sparkle fabric. Hence the name "galaxy" as I found out when it arrived. Love the style, not sure about the color. I wish there were more colors to choose from.

This is a nice purse - it’s small and light weight, which was what I as after. It still holds my big wallet, cell phone, sunglasses (which are in a large case) and various other things that purses tend to accumulate. In addition, there are lots of pockets. I would recommend this!

This pouch is perfect to drop into a bucket bag to keep your small items together. I use it for car keys, small credit card holder, lipstick, mirror, etc., etc., so I don’t have to deal with contents falling out of an open top bag. Like another reviewer, it would be perfect if it came with a wrist strap.

This is a great, casual purse. I have not had the opportunity to use it yet but I plan on using it for trips and casual affairs. It has adjustable shoulder straps so you can use it over the shoulder or as a crossbody bag. The size is perfect, not too big or small. The material is soft and the purse is very light as far as weight is concerned. I love it and I’m thinking about buying another for my mother.
