I'm not sure about this bag...
on 18 March 2014
Like other Kipling bag reviewers, I don't think that the new spotted lining feels as good quality as other Kipling linings. The phone, Pen and iPod pockets are also too close to the zip, which means the contents don't fit as well as they do in other bags. This is a design fault in my view. The brown heather colour is very nice though, it has a glittery look and texture.
I've purchased this bag to use as a cross body day bag on a foreign holiday so that I can fit a notebook, map, camera, several pairs of glasses, sun cream, hat, wipes, light fleece and water bottle etc - rather than use a backpack which may attract pick pockets from behind in busy markets. The bag will certainly fit all these items in it. Also the shape means it hugs the body, so won't be bulky. The base panel means that the bag opens very wide and makes it easy to find things. However, I am concerned that the strap does not look like it is attached strongly enough for the size of the bag and therefore the load that may be carried in it. I will see how I get on with it on my holiday and update this review accordingly!
