Rated 5 out of 5 by judy in FL Measurements aren't correct--too big for me
I love the looks of this bag but had to return it as it is just too big. Supposedly 1/2" longer than the zip zip satchel, 1/2" shorter in height, and 1" bigger in width. Well I set the 2 on the floor and the hobo was easily 2" longer than the zip zip. I measured the height and the hobo is 10.5" at the lowest point and 12" at the corner where the shoulder strap attaches. The bag was much too deep for me to feel comfortable using it as it "wore" like a 12" deep bag.
Too bad as this looks fantastic, loved the Toledo leather, loved the teal color but I returned the bag as it was just too big. To bad as someone even questioned the measurements and the Dooney team repeated the 9 1/2" height measurements in the description, tho another owner commented she measured her bag and it was 12"x12" and that is more like how it feels.....

Mine is in black and I'm so happy I picked it. Very well made. I've received many compliments from friends and strangers alike. I've been wearing this bag daily for several months, instead of one of my everyday bags, though this is more of a dress up purse. But I don't care, it's just that nice.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bchap Best purse ever!
I have many purses, mostly 'name' brands because I'm rough on my bags and throw them around every day. This one is easily becoming my favorite in a very short time. I bought the grey and to me it's just a deep, rich dark brown. The shoulder strap is extremely comfortable, it hugs your body and that makes it so easy to carry. Beautiful finish and striking with the red lining. The inside pocket next to the zipper pocket holds my Kindle Paperwhite perfectly. I love the outside zipper pocket for items I reach for constantly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sunshine05 Perfection!
Perfect size, holds everything. Perfect organization, outside pocket for my phone, inside pockets for glasses, pens, and everything else. Perfect shoulder strap, lays down out of the way when you are searching inside the bag, and it fits and doesn't fall off my shoulder. Perfect leather, burgundy color goes with blue, black or brown.
Rated 5 out of 5 by MEADA Awesome Bag!
I took a chance and ordered this bag in olive, boy was I pleasantly surprised. This bag is the perfect size, color, weight and style. It even has a back outside pocket which holds my iPhone 6 plus and more. The bag itself holds a lot but gives a stream line look. It's an extremely
smart looking and great bag to carry, plus it matches
everything. This is one of the best bags Dooney has made besides the, "Lock and Lock bag" which I have 2 of and have given as presents on numerous occasions. Again, THIS IS A SMART LOOKING BAG. Please bring more Toledo leather bags.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Colorado Misfit So Nice!
I love this purse. It stays on the shoulder, the strap drop is perfect, and has an outside pocket for easy access and is just a classic D&B look. I own one in another color too. This one was Navy. The difference between the Navy and the Black band on bottom was hardly noticeable which bothered me. I'm returning because of that and because the price DROPPED $100 dollars several weeks after I purchased it. If it was just 20-30$ difference I would have kept it. But $100 is a lot of money. I plan to reorder.
Rated 5 out of 5 by seattlestarbird Bought three, kept one
Love everything about this handbag, first I bought grey that's actually brown, not bad but not a color I wanted. Then purchased black, but with the brown strap and red fabric showing through the zipper it added to much color and took away from the nice glossy black leather, not bad, just not for me. Then purchased rouge, STUNNING COLOR!! Just perfect !!! A deep romantic color! Love it. Oh and another thing dooney, I don't care for the snap on one of the inside pockets, to me its useless and annoying, just my opinion.
Rated 5 out of 5 by shannon1977 Great Bag
This is a beautiful bag! It's larger than I expected in person, even after watching the video. I have the "grey" color which is he prettiest muddy dark brown. The size is perfect and the strap is the perfect length which makes it SO comfortable to carry. The inside has sufficient pockets for me, and I especially like the wide, open pocket which fits my big iPhone perfectly. The only thing about this bag that I don't like is that the interior is red and green. It looks like Christmas. I wish they had used either all red, all green, or a more modern color like aqua. Or even any 2 other colors together. The zipper moves very smoothly and doesn't jam. The quality of the construction is outstanding. My mom and sister have been Dooney fans for years, and this my first. I have been loyal to Coach and haven't gotten a Dooney before since they are more structured than I like. But this bag had all the features I was looking for (1 strap, leather, size, and feet), and is so smooth and soft, yet still has feet and stands upright. Once the bag is broken in it's going to feel like butter. Perfect all around except the interior color!!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Debii Returned The "Grey"
Have to admit the grey is brown but would have kept it because it is a very functional bag and the color is a good brown. But alas the leather is not good quality control with half the bag the yummy smooth leather that describes Toledo leather but other half this rugged pebble leather right on the front that takes away from the beauty. First glance makes it look like two bags stitched together and not in a good way. First time a Dooney gets returned and not for an exchange.
Rated 5 out of 5 by chrisq2 The Dooney Gods have smiled on me once again!!!
This bag is PERFECTION! Like many others, I'm a big fan of the Toledo leather. Why even make anything else? There's just nothing else like Toledo leather, it shines, it glows and just gets better with time. I love the sleek design of this bag, it's an understated "no nonsense" look that oozes class and money. Tucked neatly under the arm this handbag will casually attract everyone's attention. While it is black, this smooth and supple leather somehow casts a sheen of multiple colors. This leather looks very substantial, but somehow isn't too heavy. And, yes, finally, an outside pocket for my large phone for easy access.
I had given up on "as is" due to a few bad experiences, mainly bags without straps. I knew that wasn't a possibility with this one (no removable strap), so I gave it a shot. Not really much cheaper than the sale price, but so worth it for this perfect spectacular bag. It is a little larger than what I usually carry, but would be a gret option for when I need more room. There's not a thing wrong with this one.
I took a chance and also ordered A257690, "as is" with the blue suede outside pocket with a lock on it for show. It came with the strap and in perfect condition. They both arrived today and now I don't know what to do. I thought surely one of them would be a dud and I could just keep the winner. I really only wanted one new bag, with an outside pocket. Both are perfect and A257690 is the perfect size, all my things fit in and are well organized. Not sure which I will keep or if I can keep both.
Rated 5 out of 5 by pinkhydrangeas Love the leather!!
Well, I ordered one a few weeks ago in the Gray. I knew what to expect and was not disappointed in the color. I for one actually love it, it's a very dark mushroom brown gray and yes, it does have a little olive in it too. This Toledo leather is very rich looking and If you put it next to an actual brown bag you can see how unique the color is and it will go with anything. At first I thought it was too stiff but I have it sitting, still in the box, and every time I pass by her I sort of softly massage her and the leather has softened up considerably, maybe it's just from being out in the open air. I just love the strap and I love the red zippered large back pocket. I do wish they had put two tassels instead of one but I can live with that. That said, I am still contemplating as to whether she is too large for me but I do think I am leaning towards keeping her. She has a nice leather smell, no chemical odor here, in fact I have 20+ Dooney bags and have never received one with a funny smell.
So, I think I will add her to my stable and I haven't removed the plastic from the strap yet but I think I will do so very soon.
