This bag is ideal for my use as it has a roomy compartment where you can see at a glance whats in it and the pockets on the outside are easily accessed with one hand. It can be carried either as a handbag or a shoulder bag. It can also sit on the floor without flopping over.

Its not a fashion statement for taking to a wedding or anything like that but is a very practical useful bag. It will be ideal for taking on a budget airline flight where you dont want to pay extra for hold baggage as it can fold up and go into your small flight case until you get through security.

Well ditto all other comments. Ive had the brown version of this bag for 5 years now. I got it to use a baby changing bag and handbag combined and i'm not lying when I tell you I have used it everyday for the 5 years, it has seen me through 2 babies and all though its not a massive bag it holds everything! I have also had my own childcare company for the last 18 months which means im still in the world of nappies and bottles and the bag lives on! I love this bag and have now ordered one in Tangerine to be my summer bag to match sandals/outfits, you no how it is when you want to look yummy not grubby mummy,lol. The brown one lives on, not a tear, flaw or fault but I fancy a change so this will be my winter bag!!!

I have loads of bags but this Kipling Defea Shoulder Bag has got to my one of my favourite ones! I've got the purple one- the colour is gorgeous, and the quality is superb. You can carry it either on your shoulders with the small handles, or carry it across your body like a handbag. I like the fact that it's machine washable, but I haven't had to wash it yet as I can just wipe clean it very easily. The size is brillaint- it looks small on the outside, but it can fit loads inside. I take my baby girl to baby groups and I manage to fit everything I need inside this bag- including nappies, wipes, cup of drink, baby snacks, my wallet, keys and phone, and there's still lots of room inside. I particularly like all the little compartments which is really handy for putting small things like keys and phone. There are also some compartments on the outside which is good for putting packets of tissues or keeping some coins for easy access. I think this bag is suitable for taking to work, as well as for everyday use. I love this bag- if it ever breaks (which I don't think it will!), I will definitely get the same one again!

I love Kipling bags in general, and this style, the Defea is definitely one of the very best. If you are a minimalist, you might find it a bit too big for day to day use, but for travelling, holidays and days out, I find it absolutely ideal. The main compartment is sizeable and within it, there are drop pockets for pens, a large mobile phone (like my Galaxy S3), and a smaller one which would work for a smaller phone but which I use for my inhaler. There is also a zip pocket within the main compartment for things you want to keep extra secure. The main compartment opens with a double ended zip which means you can open it just a little way to find what you want. Having said that, the opening is large enough with the zip fully open to get quite large things inside. There is also a zip pocket across the back of the bag which is quite sizeable. I sometimes use it for my Kindle and when travelling, I use it to keep travel documents/passports etc close to me and secure, yet easily accessible. There are also four smaller outside pockets on the front of the Defea. I can get my Kipling New Money UA Wallet into one of the larger ones, which still gives room for other bits and bobs that you'd like to be easily accessible. Finally, and not obvious from the picture, there are pockets secured by velcro at each end. You can either use these for extra bits and bobs or stand a small bottle of water in one of them if you are out and about for the day.
I tend to use this bag as a shoulder bag in the summer - the straps are just about long enough for that - although with a heavy coat in the winter, this wouldn't be as easy. I should note that only recently have the straps for the defea been long enough to put over the shoulder.

I have been deciding whether to buy this bag or not as I love the colour. I bought it eventually and love it. Holds all you could possibly need and more, loads of pockets and zips. My only small complaint would be that the carry handles don't have the leather bit on them that folds the grap strap but that is not a big enough issue to stop me wanting another. great bag, love it

Like the other reviewers, this bag is great: spacious and practical. I'd like to add that the removable shoulder strap, even when worn cross-body does not make the bag look too crumpled (thus the bag retains its shape pretty well).

One thing to note that it does not fit A4 documents, papers, files: that might possibly make the bag too large and cumbersome!

A very nice bag with a lot of pockets. I love it I use it when I go swimming everything fits in ( towel, swimsuit, shampoo, lotion etc. ) althoug the measurements given by the shop is twice the size than the bag actually is. I higly recommend it, I bought it in fuchsia and it is a nice pink colour :o)
