Rated 5 out of 5 by from Schnawesome! I actually got this looking for a new "purse" (I'm not a purse kind of girl). And I love it! The zip pockets on either side help me organize and the front little pockets are great for my phone and random small things I have. The main pockets are not big enough for big books (like a normal book bag), but if you are only carrying one book around plus purse things, it is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect every day bag + great hiking companion! I've wanted one of these bags for over a year and I'm so glad I bought it! This bag is convenient and has enough space to fit everything I need on a day hike or just being out and about. I use it every day. The adjust-ability is perfect and the pattern/fabric selection is almost unparalleled. The bright Sunset pattern I bought is adorable and happy and the colors work so well together. My coworker/friend/fellow outdoor adventurer saw my bag last week and loved it so much that she just bought one herself! (Trail marker pattern)

It's great for a day pack- fitting books, a water bottle, other day essentials & the exterior pockets are perfect for keys, cell phone, & whatnot. Definitely have gotten & will continue to get a lot of use from this bag!!

does this bag have a place to hold a regular size water bottle ?

Asked by: benson
This bag does not have a pocket designed specifically for a water bottle; you would just use the main compartment.

Can you put a small water bladder in a Kavi back pack?

Asked by: Hearts4u
This bag does not have a sleeve for a hydration reservoir or a port for the reservoir tube to be routed through. You can still put a reservoir in the pack, but it will not be easily accessible or as easy to drink from as it would be if it was in a traditional hiking pack.

Can this bag be comfortably worn on the left shoulder?

Asked by: Griggles
The Rope Sling Bag is designed to be worn over the right shoulder. We have heard feedback from users that some wear it over their left shoulder and find it feels just as comfortable. Others say it is not so easy to wear on the left shoulder, so it may be subjective.
