I absolutely love this bag!! It is super spacious and has tons of pockets. Not to mention the gorgeous color! And it looked exactly like the photo. I also like the adjustable strap. I defiantly recommend this bag!

This is nice bag. However, once I place my iPad2 in the outside pocket, the velcro closure won't close - it is sewn on too low to secure the pocket. Also, the pocket is only slightly padded, on the outer side. No padding on the inside-the-bag side of the pocket. There is only one zippered pocket in this bag, on the inside. All other closures are velcro, except for the single snap that closes the main compartment. It's a nice bag, but not secure enough, and it does not fit a naked iPad2 well at all.

Love this purse. The colors are what I expected from looking at the picture. I was a little surprised at how small it was buy still fits a large wallet, cell phone, and keys. Will probably buy the larger size as well for large shopping days and work!

These bags are all the rage with my 10 year old daughter's group. Roomier than I imagined. Seems to be very durable. She's happy so I'm happy. LOL. :D

This looked like the perfect bag to take on a trip to Europe. Could fit snacks, little items, small camera and a water bottle. But a seam ripped along one of the pockets by the stitching - must have had too much weight for it? Also, the velcro closures seem nice until you reach into the deep compartments with a sweater and continually have to pull it off the sweater sleeves.

Very cute purse- holds more than expected and as many others reviewed, loved all the pockets. No longer digging around for my phone/keys/lipgloss. I bought the wave print- it's very "busy" but cute for summer.

This is a great little bag. I ordered it and another from Sherpani to see which would hold my camera for an upcoming trip—this one didn't pass *that* test, but it's still very cute. Love the print, lots of pockets and still very roomy, so I gave it to my niece.

I love this bag! It's such a great size!!! I need a bag that can carry my stuff and a few things for my little kids and it's perfect. When I don't have the kids stuff, I can zip the extender at the bottom, which is a really nice feature. My only wish is that this bag would come in other colors!!! The black is fine, but it's not my favorite.

Love this bag! I'm usually a statement purse kind of person, but I really wanted function this time. There is room for everything that was in my huge purse, but it's so much easier to manage. A great way to downsize. Stylish and functional. I got the wallet too!

Love the bag! The strap really only works if you wear your purse over your neck and on the left side. Not too big but lots of carrying capacity!

This is my second Kavu bag and I'm starting to love this brand! Great size to sit on a hip, it can fit my DSLR camera snuggly along with my other items. It has so many pockets to separate keys, phone, wallet, and personal items. My dark wash jeans have rubbed onto the material a bit, but I guess that's inevitable, and it's on the back side so it's not visible when wearing it. Overall a great bag, everyone loves the print!

Bought this for my daughter and she loved it! She had the small bag but was wanting a little bigger one without losing the look & feel of the shoulder bag. This is perfect! It has extra compartments & with the extra room, it's great for a mom, with a baby & toddler, who still likes to have a "purse."

Love this bag. This is my 2nd one. I have one that is a lighter blue, I tend to drop them anywhere and the light blue shows dirt. So went with black this time. Plenty of pockets. and since it is a cross body bag can leave you hands free while shopping, hiking or most anything.

The KAVU Sidewinder purse is my everyday purse and I refuse to change it! I have two different patterns for the sake of fashion and occasional matching. I bought the purse for a 10 day trip to Costa Rica in 2013 and now I cannot do without it. It's very roomy but has a low profile. Front pocket: iPhone. First compartment: gum, snacks, ink pen. Main compartment: Wallet, change purse. Zippered inside compartment: hygiene items etc. Outside zippered compartment: my keys -- I never have to search! Also, the Folk Fest pattern is delightful. I get many compliments on the purse.

I don't buy a lot of purses, so I'm kind of picky. I also won't spend a ton of money on them. I am loving this purse! The colors are fun! And the style is just right for me. I like that it can be worn as a crossbody if I want and there are just enough pockets for all I want to carry. Also, it's not so big that I am tempted to carry too much. So far, it seems to be holding up okay. It's a really nice purse for a very nice price.

I love my new bag. I'm not really a big fan of purses, but it becomes kind of necessary when you wear skirts and things without any pockets. The Sidewinder is just the right size to hold most everything it need it too. My iPad fits (barely, but it fits) if I need to take it with me. A water bottle also rides nicely and I can have both of those in the bag along with my wallet and all sorts of other things I've found to carry around. I love that you can change the size of the main pocket and all of the zippered pockets are great to stash important stuff (tickets, passport, etc) you don't just want floating around in the main section. I guess the only drawbacks: #1: the velcro on the front two pockets is really "sticky" (a pro and a con) so it can be hard to open quietly. #2: I wish the other colors offered weren't so ugly. I like the simplicity of the black, but fun colors would be great too.

I've had this purse for about a year now and it still looks great, and not a single stitch is out of place. I get compliments on it all the time. It holds everything a mom on the go needs, with logs of extra storage. I've only had to open the expandable zipper a couple of times because it's so accommodating. I'm rough on purses, so the inside liners usually dissolve quickly, but this purse is well-made and still going strong.

I got my new black Kavu crossbody bag yesterday. I am so happy with it. I wanted something lightweight for summer that would go with a lot of different things and this is perfect. It's not too big or too small, it's well made, and has plenty of pockets.

I love this purse! In fact, I like the KAVU brand; I own other purses by them. It is big, but is not huge wearing it on your hip. I like all the separate pockets. I want to order the same purse in a different color/design!
