5.0 out of 5 stars A veritable tardis of a bag, 10 Dec 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kipling Women's Defea Shoulder Handbag (Apparel)
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!

A fantastic review - except that I STILL don't know whether it will fit across the body.

It does. I have been using the strap (extended to fit) cross body to keep my hands free when out and about with my mischievous child whilst wearing a winter puffer jacket. Hope this helps.

Great post, I'm a huge kipling fan but surprisingly don't own one of their best selling Defea bags! I'm still contemplating between the Kipling Elise and the Defea. I actually bought the style Indira recently which I love as I need a bag that carries a lot of my junk but unfortunately doesn't fit my my Apple laptop which is 13inches. As you mentioned being able to fit your Sony Vaio in the Defea, what size laptop do you have?
