This is my second eBags purchase -- I ordered the eBags Piazza Day Bag bag in Chestnut about a year ago and really like it as an everyday bag -- the bottom opens up nicely to sit straight when set on the floor; the zippers and pockets have held up excellently to the daily commuting abuse I put a bag through. It's clearly not brand new, but there are no worn, faded, or scuffed spots which is impressive since my handbags are work horses. I felt confident ordering the Piazza's big sister bag, and was not disappointed! I just received the Kalya yesterday and am grateful as I leave for France this afternoon and was hoping to take this along -- eBags is GREAT on delivery. The bag is actually a little bigger than I was expecting, making it perfect for travel or work. I can carry a smaller purse, book, toiletries, and my netbook with room to spare. Also, it has a nifty zipper bottom section on the back that opens up to a fold-out flap with clips so that a yoga mat, towel, or jacket could be easily toted -- very convenient! Cleverly, the clips tuck back into their own little spots so they are not waving about when not in use.

The various pockets are just like the Piazza bag but bigger -- so there are plenty of options with which to organize. The bottom spreads as well, so it will sit nicely wherever it is put. I am a bit concerned that the front flap is held by magnets, but have not had problems with magnets and electronics in the past -- still, I'll be keeping the netbook inside the bag rather than in the front pocket.

The Willow color is lovely -- not too lime or yellow, but still unique enough to be easily spotted. My only wish is that eBags would create a third bag in this excellent series -- one about 1/2 between the sizes of the Piazza and the Kalya, which would outfit anybody who needs a tough, roomy, well-thought-out bag to serve a variety of daily uses.

I'm an inner-city commuter, and need an all-purpose bag that can hold all my every-day stuff plus carry occasional items from the store or stuff delivered to my work, lunches, and general whatnot that a city dweller runs into needing to carry without a car. I am replacing an old north-south laptop messenger bag that serviced me well for nearly three years. This one fit the bill after several hours of shopping and comparing. I've already transferred everything from the old bag and all of it has a spot to live just like the old bag - that was not easy to find, options seem to have slimmed down since I last shopped. I need to be able to find things easily, like my CTA card, cell phone, keys, and a couple self-defense items - with one hand and preferably without having to look. This bag is perfect. I wear my bags cross-body to be hands-free and this one is a classic design that feels light and roomy, yet not bulky. Already had a couple compliments on it, and look forward to years of use.

LOVE this bag! Its conveniences exceeded my expectations! Perfect size as a travel handbag. Padded, adjustable shoulder strap that I can use as a cross body, freeing my hands. SIX large, zippered compartments, and one large magnetized flapped pocket. Inside, 3 half-size pockets: 1 zippered; 1 small pocket to accommodate cell phone/ipod/credit cards, and pockets for 2 writing utensils. Attachment for keys if desired. The bottom compartment contains straps to secure an umbrella or rolled up jacket, towel or exercise matt to the outside. Two additional side pockets, one for a beverage (most being under 3" wide fit just fine, though maybe not the very wide sports bottles), and one to accommodate a cellphone or iPod, which includes a port for earphones. I was looking for a large purse that would accommodate both an iPad and a beverage, as well as toiletries and plenty of other travel items, while being scuff resistant during storage under plane seats. No woman wants to drag around an ugly bag even if utilitarian, and having a choice of colors cinched my decision. While it seemed to have what I was looking for and had a great design, I had no idea just how much attention to detail went into it until I received it. SO well thought out. Kudos!

It's definitely as big as they make it out to be. It holds my gym shoes, clothes and accessories comfortably as well as purse stuff without having to trudge through one to find the other. The multiple pockets definitely come in handy in trying to keep organized.

I ordered this bag for a long car trip coming up. It arrived just in time for me to try it out on weekend getaway. My first impression is how well made this bag is. This is not a cheaply sewn together bag. The zippers are heavy, the fabric is tough and will clean up well. The pockets and layout is well thought out. The flap even has a couple of hidden magnets at the corners to hold it down. It is the perfect size for packing any essentials for travel. I paired it with a small cross body sling purse which tucked nicely inside with plenty of room for my book, my camera, a light hoody and my ipad with room to spare. Because it's fabric it's light to carry and doesn't take up any more room than what you put inside it. I'm very happy with this and looking forward to using this handy bag for my long trip. I can tell it's going to be my favorite go-to bag for any travel for years to come. eBags does it again with the travelers needs in mind.

I have used this bag for work (I am an actor) and it is great for packing costume items, scripts, make-up and other necessary items for a show. I look forward to using it for travel in a couple of weeks and know it will be a great "personal item" for carry-on, since I can stuff it with a change of clothes and small toiletries (3-oz bottles) for emergencies in case my checked luggage becomes "re-routed." :)

Was looking for a bag big enough to hold my electronics, books and other things. this bag is great. It is big for one thing. But it has lots of compartments that I can put my plugs into, phone, water bottle, Kindle and what ever else I may be carrying. I just have to remember which one is which. It is easy on my back, which I needed to worry about. Even has a place for my umbrella which I put on the bottom. It fits perfectly there. I got it in eggplant. What a nice color. Not harsh but soft and really pretty. Easy to carry, zippers glide easy and the shoulder strap is perfect with the extra padding. I am shorter, so it fits me perfectly.

I gave this to my significant other who uses it to carry her teaching material to and from school. She likes it because of all of the functional pockets and generous main compartment size. It's grey inside and looks pretty good for such a functional bag.

I purchased this bag to use as my doula bag. When I bought it I was concerned that there would not be enough space for all that I needed to bring. This has a ton of space. I love that there are so many pockets. It is very easy for me to keep things organized. I have many different types of stuff that I carry; cloth, food, massage oils, aroma therapy, and personal items. With all of the different compartments I am not afraid of anything mixing that shouldn't.
This is also very durable and seems to be strong. The fabric is water proof and would clean very easily. The shoulder strap is adjustable and comes with a removable pad. The pad is nice for me because I am quite bony and my bag is fairly heavy. I will defiantly be purchasing more from this company.
