Marguerite Coin Case

  • Overall5Rated 5 stars out of 5

  • Style 5Rated 5 stars out of 5

This nicely sized coin case is really helpful for keeping organized. The unique shape makes it easy to find inside of a larger bag. It's nice round shape also makes it perfect to hold charging cords and/or headphone earbuds, which is what I'm using it for right now. It's almost too cute to keep hidden inside of a handbag though and would make a nice bag charm for a backpack or larger purse. It could also be used for a small on-the-go purse for cash and credit cards to tuck in your pocket, or use the included clip on a belt loop to keep needed items right at hand. I could also see this case being used for any number of small items you might want to keep organized such as medicine or cosmetics, or as a first aid kit or even a key holder ...I think I just might have to get another one!

Really awesome backpack, great quality. It’s a good size for a day pack, holds a decent amount. It’s very comfortable, with lots of pockets for organization. The straps only adjust to a certain length, which create a slack slouchy look for the backpack, which I personally really prefer, but good to keep in mind for your own taste.

Fundamental Backpack

This bag does not offer a whole lot of security. The draw string seems a little flimsy, and the flap is secured by velcro. This might be a cool easy day pack, but it takes a sec to open and securely close your bag since you have to fumble with the weak draw string and velcro seal. Otherwise very cute backpack.

Erica Cross Body Bag

  • Style 3Rated 3 stars out of 5

I like Kipling’s bags. They’re sturdy and somewhat fashionable. The Erica crossbody bag probably would work for most people, but for meit was a bit too big, looked clunky and had too many pockets, so I ended up returning it. This bag has at least six or seven pockets. The bagatelle bag I have now has a similar abundance of pockets, and I find it doesn ‘t work for someone like me. I’m not organized enough to remember to put everything in a particular pocket, so I often have a hard time finding what I’m looking for. Although I liked the Erica bag more, it was not enough to put up with the pockets.

Great bag, well made, nice and compact. Great for price. Loved it, but have to return: when folded over as shown, my very slim fabric RFID passport holder (really not much bigger than the passport itself) is too big to be zipped in, by just a quarter inch or so. Back to the drawing board. Too bad!

Alvar Crossbody Bag

  • Overall4Rated 4 stars out of 5
  • Comfort 4Rated 4 stars out of 5
  • Style 3Rated 3 stars out of 5

I love Kipling bags. They're not particularly stylish but they're lightweight and easy to keep clean. I've carried a Kipling Alvar bag for about five years. Each one tends to last a year or so, as the lining easily gets caught in the zipper, and sooner or later I break the zipper trying to get the lining unsnagged. But I keep going back to the bag because it's just the right size, especially for travel, and it's got so many compartments that it's easy to stay organized. I'm disappointed with the most recent version, as Kipling seems to have flipped its zipper and its internal compartments. If you're new to this bag, you may not mind, although if you're righthanded, having the zipper go from back to front isn't optimal. For me, though, after years of instinctively using the bag, it's a drag. I'll keep the ones I bought this time and reevaluate the next time I snag the lining.

I absolutely love my new Mickey Mouse backpack! It’s even better than it looks in the picture and it’s comfy and so, so roomy. I hope to have many special AND everyday adventures with it. Thanks Zappos for getting it to me so quickly (overnight when I didn’t even expect it)! Jessica chatted with me and made sure I received my points. The entire experience was FABULOUS — I can’t wait to order again!

I bought this purse for traveling. When walking or standing all day, I convert it to the "fanny pack" style, and it's much more comfortable than a traditional crossbody strap. I am able to fit my wallet, sunglasses, phone, keys, portable battery charger, and nothing else.

Great little bag - I had been looking for a light weight bag in a summer color. This is perfect for travel when you don't need to carry a lot. (I used it on a recent trip to FL - perfect. Also love the options (shoulder bag, clutch etc). Definitely would buy another.

This bag has it all. I like the handles coz I don't always feel like over the shoulder or cross body. I travel a lot so I need something big enough for my ginormous wallet, and I like lots of compartments for passport, phone, etc etc. Leather bags are too heavy, this bag is lightweight and strong.

I ordered the Kipling Lizzie bag for travel since it had a padded laptop area and a luggage sleeve. Good material and lightweight but found the height of the bag a little too tall to carry comfortably ( I am 5’4”). Also found a Kipling travel backpack model Micah at the Kipling store instead

Seoul Go Backpack

I wanted a backpack for travel and liked the material and many pockets , side pockets for water bottle and a padded area for a laptop. However I did not like the color (blue ) as much. Also I really wanted a backpack with a trolley sleeve to carry it on the suitcase handle that this style was missing. I ended up buying the Kipling Micah from the Kipling store since Zappos did not have this model and am very happy with it. The Micah is slightly smaller but had several pockets and laptop divider, also enough space for a small purse, camera etc .

Gosh I just love these little pouches. I have one that I use as my wallet. One for my phone accessories. One as a toiletry pouch in my travel bag. They are quite useful and the many pockets make them quite diverse. They are washable in the machine as well. Though I do let them dry flat. Come out like new every time. Have given them as gifts also.

I really like the softness of this bag. It allows me to put a lot of "stuff" in the many pockets. It also does NOT puddle when empty. As with my other Kiplings it can go in the washer to be cleaned occasionally. The weight is great and light. Highly recommend this bag. Just wish it came in other colors.
