Great for shopping and days out!!
on 18 April 2015
My wife spotted this bag and bookmarked it as a replacement for a rather tired work bag. I bought this for her and wow did I get some brownie points! She loves it and has used it daily since I purchased it.
The description however is slightly inaccurate and the measurements misleading and so our description is below:-
Measurements (approximate) 15” (38cm) long, 7.25” (18.5cm) wide at base, this does reduce as you get to the top of the bag for the zip closure, 11” (28cm) tall. These measurements give you the usable area of the bag, to below the area of the sunken zip. The bag comfortably holds a 1 one litre water bottle, a 2-cup Thermos flask, an insulated sandwich bag, compact umbrella and A4 size documents, with a little room to spare and the zip will close properly.
The twin handles from the top of the bag, to underside of handles is approx 9”. The shoulder strap is adjustable and removable. This measures 15” to 26” approx. from top of bag to underside of handles.
The bag easily holds A4 books, papers and will take slightly larger documents.
There is a clipped key cord, one pen pocket (not 3 as advertised), phone drop in (open) pocket approx 3.5 “ deep x 2.5” wide and .75” deep, this I would suggest has limited use now with so many smart phones around (it will just hold a Galaxy S3 Mini Smartphone). The media player drop pocket is 3.5” deep x 4” wide (probably OK for an iPod). The internal zip compartment is a reasonable size at 7.5” wide x 5.75” deep. This is a much better place to keep a Smartphone of Galaxy S4 or iPhone 5 size.
To complete the purchase you get the Kipling monkey key ring in hard black plastic (flat).
All in all, a great bag, very satisfied, so much so, she has gone and bought another for shopping/ days out!
