Rated 5 out of 5 by from I cant say enough good things about this bag I bought this bag almost 4 years ago. Durable. Great size. I took this bag with me on deployment and it held up in the Middle East, in Asia and closer to home where I take it everywhere. This is my daily bag and its great if you want to take a few things to the gym and it's the perfect size for day hikes. I also ride a motorcycle and this bag fits closely enough to me when I ride that I dont have to worry about it falling off or flapping around. It can also surprisingly fit a lot in it. The large pocket fits multiple books or a tablet (sorry not big enough for a laptop), sweatshirts, chargers even bottles of wine or a six pack of beer (not all at the same time of course). the small front pockets are great for items without it smashing anything in the bigger pockets. I usually keep my phone and wallet in there when I hike. I cant say enough good things about this bag. One of the best bags I've ever owned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More space than I expected I love the rope along bag, especially the camping pattern I ordered (the background color is more cream than white). It has 3 zippered pockets and one Velcro pocket which perfectly fits my small digital camera. The small pocket on the front would hold a large phone and still have space (in thickness). The one side pocket overlaps the largest compartment. The largest space has a small zipper space inside and is bigger than I expected it to be. I was very pleased. The rope strap could be a little uncomfortable on your shoulder if you put a lot in the bag (too heavy) or if it's directly in contact with your skin. Otherwise I love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bag I use this bag for work. I work 12 hours shift. It has lots of pockets and actually holds quite a bit. I've had it hold an outfit, bathroom bag, kindle, keys, wallet, and other small miscellaneous items. The only thing I wish it had, was a hook to hold onto your keys. I have to dig into the pocket to get the keys which manage to bury themselves down toward the bottom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nicer than pictured I bought this bag in the "Fable" print, and the have to say the online picture just does not do it justice. The colors are so much deeper. The material feels sturdy. It's a great size for every day carry. I'm very happy with this purchase, and imagine the other colors and patterns are equally as nice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic every day bag I purchased my first Kavu sling bag last fall. I liked it so much that I bought another one in a different print. I just ordered 3 more. The small, upper pouch is a great place to keep my keys handy. The lower pouch is perfect for my phone and work badges. I use one pouch for my medical supplies and the other for personal items. The interior pouch is a good place for small things that I don't want to loose. I was also very pleased with how well the bag worked out on shore excursions for our cruise. I could keep the bag on my back in areas were I felt safe and rotate it to the front when I wanted to keep an eye on it. Having my hands free was also a huge plus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gendered bags? Well there was no indication this was a "woman's" item, and frankly the distinction is silly. It's a sling bag. It's great for hiking. I love it, and I'm a guy. Please stop giving genders to objects that don't require one. This isn't a baby-doll t-shirt, it's a backpack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bag I was looking for a sling bag for the summer, and this bag is perfect. It has two outside pockets, one for my I phone 6, and another for my keys. There are two large zippered pockets as well. Lots of room for a water bottle, and wallets, and camera. And, it's comfortable too. The fabric is sturdy, and should last a long time. The color is exactly what is shown online.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect rucksack! I've had this bag for almost a month and LOVE it. It was my go-to while hiking in Utah and has remained so for daily use. It has a surprising amount of space inside and the different compartments are super helpful for staying organized. Great quality material all around. I would normally never consider a bag of this size for this price, but it's just awesome.
