On first sight the Delana appears to be a very odd shape - far too wide for its height. It's not comfortable as a shoulder bag when there's not much stuff in it, nor is it a bag to be carried as a tote in one hand - it doesn't scrape the floor but it does fold or sag in the middle. However, extend the strap and put it on as a cross-body bag and the beauty of the Delana becomes apparent. Its shape and the two pairs of front pockets encourage it to fold slightly around the hip and it lies very comfortably and discreetly - probably the best shape for a large cross-body bag that I've found. And, of course, it holds lots and lots... I walk to work every day and sometimes need to carry spare shoes or a cardigan with me - and often do a bit of shopping on the way home. Using the Delana, I will no longer need to lug an extra shopper or carrier bag with me - the Delana will take it all with ease. It even makes more sense as a one shoulder bag once it's got a few large items in it.
There are still some major flaws to the bag. The main zip is not stitched in at the end, which does allow the bag to expand but is a bit irritating.Read more ›
On the plus side it is well made and feels sturdy. The outside pockets are useful for things you want quickly, tissues, mobile and travel cards.
The one thing that I dislike about the bag, is big gap at either end. There are 2 inches of zip sticking out, or you can tuck the end inside the bag, which makes it hard to use the zip. With a big gap either side, your content is open to the elements, and if you have a fair way to walk through rain, the content is likely to get soaked! I have other Kipling bags ( Elodie, Garan) which is made the same way, but the gap is less noticeable once the bag is worn. I feel it just makes the bag look cheap, as if the correct length of zip could not be found, and any zip with the right colour was used. So the bag looks a bit unfinished or sloppily done.
I am still unsure if I should keep or return it and get a different style of bag.
Amazon then came up with this bag in the sale at £26 . WOW am I glad they did, I don't think I will ever go back to a normal handbag again. Bag is roomy (I carry everything but the kitchen sink) and even though I carry alot in my handbag, does not feel heavy on my shoulder unlike some bags I have had previously.
My recommendation is that if you havent had a kipling bag before... go for it!!
