This bag is perfect. Slightly longer handles so that it is comfortable on my shoulder, but also a cross body strap. I like having that bit of extra room in my bag for "little bits" of shopping. This is definitely a favourite, so much so that I have it in two colours.

I got this bag as I wanted something that was a decent size for work without being bulky. This bad certainly fits the bill. It is like a tardis, I can fit a jacket in if needed as well as my usual bits and bobs ie lunch, notepad, toiletries but by the same token it also looks good when virtually empty. Love how the sides are soft so it is very versatile. The fabric is lovely, I chose the brown snakeskin as I wanted something a little different without standing out too much and it is perfect for autumn. The leather on the shoulder strap is also a nice touch which adds to the style and reflects the quality of kippling. Very light which I think is so important when you can pack so much in. Fantastic buy.

You can get all the essentials in there from glasses and book to purse and brolly. It's got compartments for your smartphone and a couple of pens, and plenty of room left for picking up bits and bobs. The side pocket is handy for travelpass and things. The length of the two handles is ideal for rushing around and holding the bag on your shoulder but close to you in crowds, or you can have double security and wear it across the body with the extra handle. I'm a recent convert to Kipling (is it obvious) and very pleased with the quality and design. The designs aren't as funky as some others on the market, but this one is totally practical, comfortable and hardwearing and hey, dare I say a little more grown up than bags I've had before. The dark blue is lovely and rich and looks great with jeans! Couldn't recommend it more, worth waiting for a price reduction as they seems to pop up regularly via Amazon.

I am a Kipling addict. There, I have said it.
This is by far, the biggest one I have ever purchased to date. I love it. It's too big, according to my husband. Yeah, righto!
The brown snake pattern is beautiful. A lovely Autumnal / winter colour, which would easily take you into Spring too.
I can get everything in this bag. Purse, make-up bag, keys, phone, tape measure, wallpaper sample, perfume, umbrella, water, Kindle, MP3 and much more. Lucky it's a cross body bag or I'd have broken shoulders.
Honestly, when it first arrived, I thought 'crikey, it's too big, it's got to go back' but I persevered, chucked everything in it, and it's stayed.
Would I re-sell it? - Not a chance.

I just dont know how Kipling keep coming up with so many different designs.
I have got a lot of Kipling but ordered this bag in the Cafe Latte, a colour
I have never gone for before. What it reminds me of a coffee cream chocolate.
It is a very nice colour and I love the bag as well.
It holds so much and just like another reviewer one of my favourites is the
defea and have about 5 in different colours.
This bag does not have the outer pockets, but it looks more slimline but still
having plenty of room.
I hope to get another one soon.

This will be a great weekend and holiday bag, holding everything I need. The good thing about Kipling bags is that they are so light yet so organised. Another Kipling for my small, but growing, collection. The colour is a lovely autumn colour, and I love autumn colours.
