Rated 4 out of 5 by Fitfeet09 Very roomy
I bought this in mini-geo which is pretty and goes with navy and maroon colours particularly well, especially as winter is upon us. It is very roomy, and my only gripe might be that it tends to look a bit square and boxy when filled.

Love the Geo print option in this bag, but unfortunately it just doesn't keep any shape when worn across body.
It has to be really full to stop the whole thing collapsing which is a pity.
I do wish Kipling would use a more substantial material in the larger bags so they keep their shape.
Sorry to say the new fabrics seem to be a lot thinner than previous styles.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Wisebuyer Absolutely love the centre zip compartment, but...
I cannot get to grips with this bag. It just somehow seems really bulky. I think I am just a cross body person and so this style is not comfortable for me. I feel that when it has grab/shoulder handles and you use the added cross body, that the handles just dangle and look untidy, plus the shape seems to go all to pot. What I absolutely love about this bag is the centre zip pocket. It holds my Brownie purse easily and very securely. I also like the new gathered top on the larger inside open slip pocket that this style has. I chose the tan rose - another thing I am not sure about, never having had a bag with a large pattern on it before. What would be perfect for me is a proper cross body, like the Gaelle, but with the super centre zip compartment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by girlygirly Another Great Bag
When I saw this, I like the style and the shape of this bag. I chose the Rose Bloom Tan and I love the colours. I do like the middle pocket. I also like the fact that there is two outer pockets ideal for either tissues or keys. There is more room than you think. I am not keen on Velcro fastenings. The grab handles you can place them on your shoulder quite comfortably. Another great bag from Kipling.

What a bag. Bought on OTO, in the blue feather.
The print is brilliant, It has a good variety of blues and creams. The bag it self does exactly what it says on the tin. I can get an IPad, A5 note book, purse, pencil case, 2 small bottles of coke and 3 balls of wool in it. The wide base allows me to get a lot more in it then I had at first thought. But, as is usual for Kipling bags, it looks just as good when not quite as overloaded. I love the extra organisation, a place for everything and everything in it's place certainly works with this bag.

Rated 3 out of 5 by puppylover Smaller than i thought
I ordered this in the mini Geo wish i had ordered the plum as i dont like this pattern at all, and the bag seems fairly small unless you fill it right up which would then be to heavy for me,
So i am returning this more postage wasted ..I think i will have a break from kipling for a while now as they seem pretty small for a medium bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lover0f6lamour My new love
What a beautiful bag this is! I have been waiting for a proper red colour for some time now, and Kipling clearly listened, as Marie-Francoise said. Brilliant lipstick red! As well as the colour, what really sold it to me is the section in the middle. I love my Cyro, Jopan and Taube with this feature, and here is new love. The sections that are either side of partition are of good size, taking comfortably my large purse and all other can-not-go-out-without bits. Bottom part is not too wide to look bulky, yet nicely accommodating as mentioned before.The bad holds shape beautifully, handles are long enough to go over shoulder, perhaps even with coat on, but not too long as to be uncomfortably low, if held in hand, for a more petite person. I also like side pockets, though feel I can only put something I could loose and not mind, like folded carrier bags and tissues in them, as they have no closure, which is fine. Glad I bought it at special price and on easy pay, what a treat for myself. Now I fancy this bag in another colour! Well done, Kipling!
Could we have more bags with a mesh pocket for water bottle, like Marie-Francoise bag, please?

Rated 5 out of 5 by jingle123 A good size bag and a fab colour!
I bought the red one and it is a fabulous red, not a pinkish red or a purple red. More like a beautiful poppy or pillarbox red. It has in the centre a zipped compartment, as I do not like them I have placed a piece of strong cardboard in it and it divided the two areas without it drooping in the centre. I can still carry my items and get them within easy reach. I really love the shape of this bag and it stays upright and quite sturdy.
