I love this backpack! The color is beautiful and I love the straps. They are a lot wider than those string backpacks so they do not dig into your shoulders. I am planning on using this backpack as my purse/hold my kids stuff when we go to Disney this summer. This is an awesome bag!

Cute design, but when it was loaded up with my credit cards it was too hard to get the cards out. I also prefer two zippered pockets - one for change and one for all those little reward cards.

I was on the fence for a long time because I think it is over priced. I ordered it anyway because of Zappos' excellent return policy. But it is not going back! I absolutely love the bag! It looks small but fits a lot and I am so glad I bought it! I hope they have more color choices.

The perfect backpack! It's so beautiful (I got the turquoise color). I love all the zippered compartments. It's roomy enough for my Toshiba notebook. A+.

Great light-weight bag that's neither too big nor too small. Has loads of pockets (9 total including main compartment) that's perfect for someone who likes to keep things organized in their purse. Main compartment has a divider and big enough to hold my LV full sized wallet, small umbrella, sunglasses and a packet of hand wipes. There are 4 more pockets inside the bag and one of them is zippered. There are also two outside pockets on each side of the bag. One of them is zippered and the other is velcro closure. They're perfect for things that need easy access such as my smart phone, small mirror, a pen and lip gloss. Although it's a cross body bag, the straps can be adjusted short enough to use as a shoulder bag and has a drop of 15 inches when used as such so there's lots of clearance on top of the bag. I'm 5'5" with a short torso so when I use it as a shoulder bag, the bottom ends up at mid-hip for me. The straps are wide and don't hurt my shoulder even when I pack the bag with lots of things. Overall, it's a great everyday bag that's easy to clean and maintain without having to worry about it.

I just returned this bag after using it for a week or so. Even though it wasn't for me it is still a great bag. All the organizational pockets are excellent and I especially like that there's velcro on the back pocket. The polka dot lining is wipeable and light so that it's not a big black hole when you look inside. I also like that the two drink pockets have zippers -- they help the bag with one of its best features: looking pretty darn cool. Ultimately I sent it back because it's a bit too big and heavy for my needs. Also, although part of why I bought the bag was that it features built in stroller straps, they did flap around somewhat and that bothered me.

I bought this for my wife after a long long search. It is perfect, nicely designed, functional, well made, sporty and attractive. Good mix of fashionable and practical. My wife really liked it.

I used this bag for the first time today. I wore it with a black dress to a wedding. With the patent leather (faux) trim and the gold accents, it worked really well. It fit my glasses, phone, lipstick, comb and a small wallet. Perfection!

I'm a little biased because I grew up with Kipling products in the late 80s/early 90s - and I still love them even though they're, sadly, now all made in China. The Cerulean blue I bought this in is absolutely fabulous, a beautifully vibrant color that just puts a smile on your face and is a perfect stand-out from the usual black or other neutral colors. I bought this to match the Noelle bag I bought in the same color and am very happy with it so far, although in all honesty I haven't had much of a chance to put them to the test yet. Still: form, function, practicality and style converge on just about all Kipling products, and I can only hope that their current manufacturing process, albeit outsourced, maintains the same standards.

It's a little hard to review this because I'm totally biased - I've known and bought Kipling brand items long before they became well-known everywhere. While, as I've mentioned in other reviews, I'm terribly disappointed that Kipling has joined the rank and file of companies outsourcing their manufacturing overseas, the overall unique appeal remains. I can't yet comment on the durability of the newer Kipling items, I can only hope that they'll stand the test of times like my "old" ones - some of which date back to the late 80s/early 90s and remain like new. I've NEVER experiences any rips, tears or other types of issues with a Kipling product to date, but I will admit that I don't use them on an every day basis. This tote is beautiful, vibrant, practical and perfect for a myriad of uses - I liked it so much I ordered the black one within days of receiving this one!

This is the absolutely most perfect carrying case for anyone who does journaling, sketching, smashbooks, runs around with a Filofax etc. Not only do you have compartmentalization for art supplies, pens, pencils - or, alternatively, beautiful supplies - the whole case is super lightweight and super cute! I have this in at least 6 different colors now and wouldn't hesitate to buy another one if a color/pattern came along I liked. I keep one filled with markers, another one for travel etc. Endlessly functional, practical and tons of uses!

I've owned Kipling items for over 20 years and while I'm hugely disappointed that, like everyone else, they've sold out and outsourced their manufacturing overseas, their appeal remains. In fact, I bought this tote just a day or two after buying it in blue - and finding the style so perfect for my personal needs that I just had to have it in black for traveling. As with all Kipling items, the lightweight nylon material is perfect especially for travel. What I do find lacking in the bags, though, is any kind of optional structure or internal compartmentalization - basically if it's not filled to capacity, it's going to slouch significantly. Also, I would've preferred the shorter handles to be a little longer and/or adjustable, and the strap to be removable for more options. But, it's a great purse for anyone who needs extra spacious bags for work, it's perfect for going to the gym and travel.

I've been buying Kipling items for a long time and have had various of their products since I was a teen. As far as I can tell, for the most part the quality and design are still the same, even if the monkeys are a little less "cute" than they used to be, and, sadly, like other major companies, Kipling also manufactures a chunk of their inventory in China now. What I was really disappointed and somewhat frustrated by with this particular purchase is that the product I received has a YELLOW tab on the zipper, not the black on black as shown in the picture - and I'm afraid that's on Zappos, not Kipling. I'm keeping it because I wanted a black one and it's out of stock now, but that's why I'm not giving this item a better rating.

I purchased this bag for a overseas trip and I'm glad that I spent the money on it. Being able to hike and run around without worrying about holding or forgetting my bag somewhere was amazing. This bag held all that I needed and more. I would recommend this bag highly.

I just got my bright pink bag and love it! Perfect size! Pockets for everything! Including the most important thing...my Kindle! Perfect length, hits my hips. I'm 5'7". Using as crossbody. Looked at thousands of bags and choose the Syro. Best decision made. Hands down, The Perfect Crossbody bag out there!

I bought this back pack in black for my daughter's first year in high school and it has held up as one of the most durable, strong and sturdy backpacks I've ever purchased. She commuted by mass transit every day, lugged unbearably heavy books, notebooks, lunch and ipad everyday with no damage whatsoever to the back pack. I sent her off to college this fall and didn't even think of buying her a new one. We washed this one and it is now in it's fifth year of service attending college with my daughter. Kipling is a great product. It will last and is cute too!

Great lunchbox. It fits my "bento" boxes perfectly. Also keeps foods nice and cold from morning 'til lunchtime. I like that this lunchbox doesn't look like a lunchbox.

I bought this for a trip to the theme parks in Orlando, and it has become my daily bag with the shoulder strap. The size is perfect - it is amazing how much can be crammed in, and the profile when worn as a belt bag is still small enough that I did not have to take it off for roller coasters etc. It holds my wallet, phone, phone charger, lip stuff, a small sunscreen, sunglasses, ibuprofen, even a reusable nylon shopping bag. Plus it is cute, stylish, and the black hides coffee stains. It is even somewhat water resistant. I would not trust it in a downpour, but my stuff was all pretty dry after several river rapid-type and log flume rides. This is my first Kipling bag, but it will not be my last.

I had a similar bag from Kenneth Cole that wore out very quickly. This bag is sturdy--both the zippers and the material. The outside pouch pockets (there are actually two on each side) are perfect for my phone, wallet, and keys. The outside pocket with the buckle is actually a velcro closure, so it's easy to get to. I'm short and had a similar experience that other reviewers mentioned of the long strap hitting the ground when I carry the bag by the shorter straps, but the long strap is removable, and I love that I can fit the shorter straps over my shoulder. The only downside to this bag is that it only came with one gorilla keychain, which my children fought over.
