Rated 5 out of 5 by watssen Love The Hornback
Just received mine in the black hornback and love it. Yes, it's a little stiff but I can deal with that. I think it will soften with time. I love the hornback design and have been wanting a bag with this embossing for quite some time. The bag is a bit large for me, but I'll be able to fit my necessities and more inside and it will look great for the office. I just wish the straps were a bit longer. I like to carry my handbags on my shoulder but don't think I'll be able to with this one. I did not receive the tassel with mine, but I'm going to call and see if they have any. It doesn't matter because for the "as is" price, I can live without it.

I was so excited to get my bag! It was soft, loved the fringe and tossel! But, when the strap attached to the magnet, it was crooked! I thought I could live with it, but couldn't....I sent it back.
Rated 2 out of 5 by AnnMS Stiff and Heavy
I ordered the black stirrup leather hobo bag. I was so excited to get it. However, when I opened the box the handbag was so heavy and very stiff leather. (Now I know why they did not spend a lot of time showing the black one.) I do not know how long it takes to "soften" but did not want to wait around to find out. I sent it back today and ordered another GILI. Hopefully, this one will be softer than the previous.

Black bag very stiff and uncomfortable. Straps says 8 inches but feels shorter.like the style and shape but very stiff don't think I'm going to wait for it to soften.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dinainme Nice Bag!
I've ordered this before and didn't care for the feel of the leather but decided to give it another try and as an As Is item. I can't tell if the one I received was carried but it seemed to be a little softer than the one I received when ordering before so maybe it does break in over time. The only thing with mine is there was a small knick on the top near the hardware but I can easily color the small knick with black marker and no one will notice. The tassel also seems like it could use a little more glue to seal the upper part. Overall, I am pleased so I am going to keep the bag. No sense ordering a brand new one and pay $100 more! Glad I took another shot at this one! I have some cowboy boots to match it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by JGRA Black Hornback Leather Gili Hobo Bag A No Go
I waited for ever to get this bag, missed it the night it aired. Purchased as is which is not an issue. The design of the bag is the problem, the handles are to short and not comfortable when gripping the bag. When you actually put your stuff in it, it definitely will be difficult to carry. A suggestion longer handles, so you can put over your shoulder and a strap, Sometimes we need to be hand free.
This leather is not soft enough to for a hobo and if it does soften over time it would take years.
Over priced......even for an as is.
