I really like this bag. This is my third Kavu bag. I have the rope bag, also seen in the picture. I decided to purchase this bag because my mini keeper broke. I was afraid this bag would be a lot bigger than the mini keeper but it is a great size!
I has a nice little padded pocket next to the snap closure in the main pocket that just barely fits my samsung s6 phone in height, but it works :)
I also really like the color. With Kaku, I would suggest the solid colors because the canvas is dyed. My mini keeper I had originally was a print. They paint (screen-print) the canvas and begins to flake. The solid colors just fade with wear and look nice (at least to me). I've had the purple rope bag about 8 months and it still looks great.
One other thing, the strap is pretty long. It says it is adjustable but even at the most adjusted length, if I don't cross-body it, then it is lower than my hips. I'm 5 foot 6, so if you have a short torso this bag might be way too long for you.
Update: Almost a year later. I still use this bag every day. It has faded quite a bit as expected but I think it adds charm.
This bag is super cute. The size is perfect for what I need to carry. The day after I bought it, It went on sale for 10 dollars cheaper and I was unable to get a refund for the ten dollars. I like the inside material and the little compartment for the cell phone. In the front there is a nice little zipper part and a velcro pocket in the back. The bag hangs well and has an adjustable strap. It doesn't adjust very far, luckily it is a pretty good length for me, its hangs longer than many bags. Love the blue design and the rope strap.
I LOVE THIS BAG!! It is the PERFECT size. Fits my wallet, keys, little bag of lipstick/essential oils, my moleskine notebook, my checkbook, gum, mints, phone, basically all my every day carry perfectly. Its a great size that takes away the stress of digging for things and fits perfect at your hip. I love the style of it and the climbing rope crossbody. It has an inner pocket and two outer pockets, one with a zipper and the bag has a snap button to close it. The strap is adjustable so you can make it whatever length works for you. I love it. LOVE it. Will be purchasing this bag in different colors for ever.
I love the adjustable strap. I like cross body bags to fall right to my hip but I'm also quite tall, so it's difficult to find bags that work. This one worked out great and I can always adjust it back depending on my needs.
I bought this bag for my best friend for her birthday, and she loves it! The "Check it" pattern is so unique, but it goes well with all outfits. The bag is fairly small, but it fits all the essentials. One thing I didn't realize before I bought it is that it doesn't zip at the top, it just buttons to close. I'm sure it says that somewhere in the description, but I missed it. The button has been fine though. Great bag!
Returning this as color is much darker than pictured. Darker teal. Well made and. Cute but not as summer-y as I am looking for. Wish it was!
I love this purse/bag. It is just big enough for my wallet, charger, cell phone, and sunglasses. I have received many compliments on it. The rope strap was a bit longer than I wanted, so I folded the strap just above where it connected to the purse and put a couple stitches in it with needle and thread. Then I just tucked the folded part into the back pocket. If I want to use this as a cross body instead of a shoulder bag, I just need to clip those couple stitches to lengthen the strap.
Although I LOVE the look and size of this purse, I find it painful to wear. I wear it across my body like a messenger bag (not just on one shoulder) and the 3-rope strap is incredibly uncomfortable on my neck. I often cringe when I'm wearing it (think: rope burn). I wish I had returned it when I first bought it a long time ago.
