I'm like Goldilocks when it comes to bags: not enough pockets, too many pockets, too small, too big, wrong color, too heavy, not durable enough the list goes on! So I was looking for something that could double as a wallet that I throw in my tote for work days, and a clutch that already has my cards, money, and lip gloss, and still enough room to add my phone and keys to, when I'm running errands, going out for a meal, etc. Previously, I had the Keen Hazel Wrist Wallet in Khaki. It did all those miraculous things and it's made of recycled aluminum and cork vegan suede (bonus!). But after a year and a half, it got abused badly. And, after realizing how much I use it as a clutch these days, I wanted it to be a little less "casual." Sure the Keen had function, but I wanted some style too! First, I purchased a Hobo Lauren in Stone Vintage leather (grey) wallet (not from this site). Although it did fit everything I wanted, it could barely close. It seemed like, with all those pockets, there's little room left for things to put in them! So after spending a day looking everywhere a my local, pathetic mall, I lost my patience for brick and mortar and did some late night shopping here. I couldn't decide which I liked better, Hobo Vida, also in Stone Vintage Leather, or Harvey's Seatbelt Bag Hipster in Storm (silver). That's what I love about Zappos - free shipping, free returns - so you can get a first hand look at both, then decide. Bonus, it comes within 2 days! Upon first opening the box, I was leaning toward Harvey's Hipster, because it's such a fun and unique material, seems durable and roomier. And the silver color is far more beautiful than the Hobo Stone Vintage Leather. But when I put my wallet belongings in there, it was hard to configure with so little pockets. Then, the phone and keys test. Not as roomy as I first expected. Although the material it is made from seems practically indestructible, it also makes for a heavy bag. Not good if I want to throw it into my tote that I wear on my shoulder and I already have chronic shoulder issues Then came the test for Hobo Vida. Yes, it's quite boring sitting next to Harvey's. But if this is to be an everyday bag, I did want it to be fairly neutral. One thing I do love about it is it's simplicity with cute attachment of strap. It also fit my wallet belongings, with just the right amount of pockets. And, there was still enough room left to fit my phone and keys without it looking too bulgy. That's what I was most worried about, but now after carrying this thing around now for a couple weeks, the leather has broken-in and forms around whatever it's carrying, so even less bulge. It's also sleek, it's easy to carry under your arm or use the strap around your wrist if you don't have any hands available. I've even taken it to a weekend full of concerts in the desert and found myself dancing with it in hand without it getting in my way. I just hope it doesn't start falling apart as other reviewers have mentioned. Now that I've fallen in love with it, I'll be so bummed if it does!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this bag!!!!! It holds everything you could need! I have the iPhone 7 plus which fits perfectly and then ALL my other stuff!!!! It's so beautiful I ordered another for a friend! I love that I can just grab it to take with me when I don't want my whole purse! It fits all the essentials and feels really good in my hands. People have complemented me several times on how much I can fit inside. I want one in every color!!!!!!!!

I wanted a small bag for when I am traveling. It packs flat and holds my phone and a few other essentials. It's a great looking bag and can be used day or night. Very happy with my purchase.

I love Hobo's leather and this bag is no exception. The leather gets better with time and wear. Perfect size although a little longer than I'm used to--fits cash, cards, key fob, iPhone 7 w bulky case, 3 lip colors and has room to spare. All organized nicely.

I don't know why this received 4 stars - I think it is the perfect wristlet/clutch. I have about 5 Hobo bags of various sizes and this one is just about perfection! I chose the Coral color, it's very soft, perfect for Spring/Summer. It holds my cards, lipstick, comb and fits my Iphone 6+. I ordered it yesterday morning early and it arrived today. Zappo's is the best, great price and the shipping and customer service is second to none. I am a big fan of Hobo and a big fan of Zappo's. Can't go wrong with this bag, I am in love !

I do not like to carry large purses. This is perfect for all my credit cards, keys and iPhone 7 plus. I love the strap that fits around the wrist so that my hands are free. I carry a large work bag with files and my computer. I can easily pull this out to take into stores or restaurants. I bought the coral color which is perfect for spring. I will likely buy another color for the fall.

Bought the Hobo Vida over a year ago and STILL love my little clutch!! It has gone with me on numerous trips and pretty much stays in my car for that quick and easy throw a couple of items in and run. This trendy little clutch is perfect for an evening out on the town to a casual lunch with the girls! Like I said...this bag keeps on going with me everywhere and doing a great job keeping my life in order!! Thanks Zappos for caring GREAT products!! JuJu

I love this purse....obviously since this recent purchase was the 3rd one like this. I get so many compliments on them (black, taupe, and rose colors). I use it as a "Wallet Purse." It carries all my essentials (credit cards, insurance, ID, money, checkbook, keys, phone, and lipstick, as well as other small items) and then I just throw it in my work bag or larger purse when need to be able to tote around more non-essential items. If I don't feel like toting my big purse into store or take my workbag to lunch with me, then I just grab this small purse and go. Its just the right size to do this and rarely take the bigger purse. I haven't found any other wristlets that have the style and capacity of this purse/wallet! Got melted chocolate in it and cleaned up well! And another great thing, is the leather softens with time providing a little more capacity and still looks great (maybe better!)

Love this clutch. Admired one that my daughter had (in a different color), and darned if she didn't send me a gift certificate to get one for myself. I use it as a wallet, and keep it in my bigger handbag. But when I don't want to carry the big bag, I just pop my cell phone into the clutch, and off I go to shop or run errands. I have everything I need in the clutch.

Cuuuute bag. Holds all my stuff for a night out. I like it so much, I bought it in two colors. Please be aware if you buy the turquoise color that it is a TRUE turquoise and not the robin's egg blue that it looks like in the pictures. Otherwise, great bag!

Lovely wallet/wristlet, just perfect for the essentials including iPhone6+, keys, lipstick, cards, and coins, It feels great in your hand. Gets softer every day, loving the unusual green color. If I need something bigger, it simply gets tossed in my big bags and ready to go. I've spent years trying to get used to a crossbody but hated them, their straps tangled up in seat belts, and among everything else in your bigger bag. This hobo wristlet is the perfect solution for "quick runs" to the store, to get the kids, etc. Again, just perfect.

Brands I'd also recommend: kate spade, longchamp

Gorgeous and very versatile Hobo clutch. I love Hobo International bags anyway, and this one did not disappoint. Perfect for loading with your essentials, including a phone, lip color, pockets for credit cards and cash. I used mine inside my larger tote and then pulled it out for a special occasion.

Brands I'd also recommend: Botkier, Hobo International

This is the best little purse for everyday use. I love that it holds all my cards and license. Room for my cell phone, a checkbook and nice compartments for money, etc. It looks smart and I don't have to lug around my heavy coach purse anymore.

This is beautiful and classy. It is just a perfect size to grab out of my larger tote for that quick run into the store or cafe. I usually carry large bags, but this is easy on my back. I adore the handle.
