Rated 3 out of 5 by Keyfobfan Could be ideal but
The size of this bag is perfect, very deceiving. I would gladly purchase another few in different colours. HOWEVER, the quality of the zip is very poor, it is rouched and not smooth like my other Kiplings. The material seems harder than normal too. I hope Kipling are not skimping on QVC only items. If not for the zip this would easily be 5 stars

Bought this bag on a whim and so glad that I did. It is fantastic, the compartments are roomy yet the bag is not bulky, the zips are a good length unlike some others I have bought in the past. I have had no problems with the zips like other reviewers, they seem to work fine. The strap is a great length and not too thin. The best feature for me is that the seams are all reinforced which gives the bag great structure and doesn't slouch. Chose the dark butterfly print which is beautiful, love this bag. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants an everyday bag that holds loads, looks great and doesn't break the bank.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tullulah7 What a shame!
Being an avid collector of Kipling, I bought this bag to take on holiday & found it perfect to hold everything I needed. Wanted a shoulder/crossbody bag with front & back zipped sections & thought this would be ideal. Dark butterfly print is fab & yes, ideally the strap could be thicker, but my problem was the 2 nylon zips. As another reviewer said, they don't appear to sit smoothly in the fabric. Very stiff at first, but did loosen during my holiday. However, both zips wanted to stop an inch from the end & I got fed up using 2 hands to fasten, especially when at the airports. Shame, as it held an enormous amount, but reluctantly returned for refund.

I have many Kipling bags but this is my favorite. Just the right size with many compartments for all my stuff . l always take the monkey of but l think this particular color pattern makes the bag so expensive looking just beautiful and extremely practical.

As a big fan of Kipling I was so looking forward to the arrival of this bag but i was so sorry to find that the overall appearance was just not Kipling standard. I loved the colour, fudge, but the handle was just so long, even when drawn up to its maximum it reached the floor when held in my hand. My first ever return with this product range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by memememe Good and useful bag.
I usually like a very large bag but as this was a OTO I decided to give it a try, convinced it would be too small for my needs. It isn't! I find it so practical, love the outside deep pockets and the centre is roomy enough to hold quite a lot. It's slightly taller than stated at 9.5". The zips are a little stiff at first due to newness of bag but not a problem really. I bought the orangy colour which in reality is a deep brick shade. Just over a foot wide so very useful. I' m happy with my purchase and the usual Kipling good quality.

Rated 2 out of 5 by skinnyminny INFERIOR QUALITY
I have many Kipling bags all in various colours and designs. I even have two purses. All excellent quality. I do not mind paying a good price for a well made item. However, it looks as if this has been manufactured by another organisation. The colour is not denim or jeans blue...the zip is slightly shorter than usual...the zip is ruckled, I had to have several attempts before I could open it, although it is now free. The stitching around the front panel appears faulty. It does not look right This bag may have been badly packed but I do not believe it will ever revert to the correct shape.. OTO it may have been but it is still no bargain and is going back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Iolite NOT denim blue
2 stars because it is a good bag for design and size. HOWEVER, my denim blue and Kiplings denim blue are totally different. The monkey is definitely a teal colour and the bag is slightly teal. I may be getting on a bit but not colour blind. Sadly its going back.
