Colour Name: Lacquer Black
The Kipling Defea is the perfect bag. So there.

But seriously... we just got back from a holiday to the Arctic (wait, this is relevant, honest) and my Defea was the ideal travel companion. Allow me to explain.

My husband always ribs me about the amount of luggage I take anywhere. To be fair to him, I usually do take way more than I actually end up using, so this time, despite the fact that I had a legitimate excuse to take more that usual (Arctic temperatures, so need more layers), I packed a medium rather than large suitcase and dug out my Defea to use as carry-on luggage.

Typically I use a Jansport rucksack as carry-on, believing that the 2 straps over the shoulders will make carrying all the rubbish I insist I need on a flight easier. But this didn't fit in with my pared-down packing plan, so the Defea it was.

Wow. Since the bag is so light to begin with, it was remarkably not that much heavier when full.

Colour Name: Emerald Verified Purchase
I am a kipling fan, let's make no bones about that, and most things kipling please me. They are uniformly well made, good colours and joy of joys they can be thrown in the washing machine and laundered as and when they need it, giving them much more longevity than normal bags.
The Defea is for women like me who carry a lot of random stuff around. Not only does it have the usual slots for phone, mp3 and the like, but it also has plenty of pouches and places to store keys, makeup, cheque books, credit cards and so on. Add to that the main compartment of the bag easily takes one sony vaio notebook, mouse, spare battery pack, mousemat and two university books along with a notepad (the paper type) and pens, and STILL has room for the heap of old receipts, the purse and the assortment of clutter I hike around with....and it is still NOT FULL.
The capacity of this bag is even more amazing given that it does not look that large from the outside.

When I am not carrying around heaps of study material, I have loads of room for small amounts of shopping in this bag, meaning no carrying around a spare bag, and this for me is a great bonus.

Reliable and sturdy, I cannot fault this most favourite bag of mine, and the colour is a nice one too - it is advertised as Emerald green, and I thought it would be bright and loud, but it is not, just a nice deep emerald colour, not at all youthful and funky.

Highly reccomended and the best bag I own!

As other reviewers have said this has multiple uses! Handy pockets, shape makes it good to carry even when full. The size is great as a mum of a toddler as fits my stuff and baby stuff. Highly recommend!

Colour Name: Black
I am 53 and have never had a handbag. When I have needed to carry something I have used a small rucksack or just pockets. My sister-in-law has one of these bags in red and I thought how nice it looks. So I took the plunge and bought one for myself in black. I am SOOOOO pleased with it. I can carry loads of things; keys have their own little ring ro attach to, so no rummageing around to find them; lots of different pockets making it easy to store wallets, pens, business cards and other things like that. The main section is big enough to comfortably hold a large bible and note pad.
I look after my grandson regularly and it has been easy to carry all the necessary things, change of clothes, food, drink, cars, books, toys, with still plenty of room for my few bits.
Last week a bottle leaked in the main compartment so I stuffed the bag in the washing machine and it has come out as good as new.
Overall, I love the bag and can highly recommend it.

My wife assures me that the bag is very practical and roomy: good quality fabric, waterproof and lightweight. It arrived very promptly. I am a little concerned that this is Kipling bag number five!

Colour Name: Yellow (Sunflower) Verified Purchase
This is a review for the Sunflower Yellow Kipling Defea. I just want to state that i'm a long time Kipling fan and this is not my first Defea. The bag itself is excellent, a perfect mid size bag with all the trimmings you'd expect from the Kipling brand. But then we come to the colour. As you can see from my photo it is horrendous. In what universe is that sunflower yellow? I normally go for dark, jewel toned colours but wanted something nice for the summer - even on amazon the colour is much lighter. Dont be fooled either - Kiplings may be hard to photograph, but the colour you see in my picture is EXACTLY the colour you will get. Gutted really as i saved ages to buy this but it will definitely be going back. Stick to some of the safer colours like Canard, Winter Green and Dark Aubergine - all lovely.
