Hobo Summit Leather Great Lengths Satchel with Crossbody Strap
I have several Hobos. All of which are unique in color and style. I love love love them all. However this purse disappointed me. The color was amazing the leather was great and the number of pockets were perfect, but to call this purse a crossbody is a joke. I am 5'2 and this purse fell right under my breast when I attempted to wear it as a crossbody. Not at all where it should have hit! Very very disappointed!
Wonderful leather, great organization
I love the organization of this bag and the leather is very nice. I like the unique olive colour - very me! I also took the longer strap off because it is not long enough to be a crossbody. I like using the handles better and they do fit over my shoulders. The zippers are heavy duty and a little too obvious on this bag. I love the side zippers - very convenient. The lining is lovely - great colours & design. It makes me happy everytime I open it!
No need to mislead on a great bag.
I purchased this bag about 4 months ago. My first higher end bag. The leather is fantastic, the zippers are heavy but not rough and I do not worry that they will break easily. I love the organization and lining. My one criticism is the cross body strap. This is NOT a cross bodystrap . I am a size 8-10 woman and a standard crossbody strap should fit someone like me. With just a couple more inches of strap, this bag would really be perfect and fit the description given by HOBO. Why didn't they just add a couple extra inches of strap? It seems easy enough to do. It's a 5 star bag but it is not but it is not a crossbody as advertised so I have to knock it back to 3.
Beautiful purse with one HUGE flaw
This is my 4th Hobo purchase, but it is the first time from QVC. The purse is a great size and the leather is so incredibly soft. I specifically purchased this purse for travel purposes because I wanted something hands free. The description calls it a cross body purse but it is way too short to be a cross body even on a petite woman. This was a huge disappointment, and I have considered returning it but its such a cute purse that I would rather keep even if I am still on the hunt for a true cross body.
I couldn't give this 5 stars because this bag has some flaws. The Crossbody strap is
not a crossbody because it is way to short. I removed it from the bag and I actually like it better that way. The zippers are a problem because they are sticky. They weren't a deal breaker for me because zippers mean pockets. I love the pockets because they give me lots of organization. The best part of this bag is the leather. That is why I loved the bag in the first place. I purchased the bag as a lunchtime special. I got a really good price and I couldn't say no because this really is a leather lovers bag! Oh, I forgot to say I bought the olive because I don't have anything like it in my collection. I wouldn't recommend this bag because it is flawed and I would insist that I talk to each potential buyer before they made the purchase and that isn't going to happen. Sorry!
Like it, Except for Non-Crossbody Strap
This is a great bag, because it has FOUR, yes four outer pockets, which are awesome for organization. I like the shape, and the leather, and the zippers on mine were fine, but the description that the detachable strap is a CROSSBODY strap, is so misleading. Sure, if you want your bag to hang right at your chest. That's flattering. So I tried putting another strap on it that is a TRUE crossbody strap, and wouldn't you know it, the rings on the bag were cumbersome, huge, and too thick. So, really, there are only two options to wear this - over your shoulder with the double straps, or...over your shoulder with the "crossbody" strap. Sigh.
It's OK but not a I thought
I ordered both the black and the olive. I LOVE Hobo but this bag is just ok. It's not as roomy as I thought and the zippers are really cheap. I will keep one and send the other one back. I bought one for my daughter but it's kind of "old" for a young 20something. A little disappointed but with easy pay not so bad.
ugly and cheap looking
this bag is cheap looking the crossbody strap is short and awkward the zippers are rough i didnt like it at all i would not buy anything from this line again
First the good: the leather is really nice and the bag is well thought out in terms of organization. Now the not so good: both of this bag's carrying options (shoulder or crossbody) are awkward. The rings that the crossbody straps attach to do not lay well if you take that strap off to carry with the shoulder straps only. They stick out and look out of place. If you try to carry it as a crossbody, the shoulder strap handles do not lay well - it becomes a jumbled mess of handles. Either way, awkward. My second complaint is the zippers on this bag just simply do not match the quality of leather or the price. They are rough and jerky. I have bags at half this price that have better quality zippers. Overall, love HOBO. This is my third HOBO purchase and the only one I am not satisfied with. I will be sending this one back to QVC.
LOVE HOBO BRAND
O.K.... I went a little crazy with this brand when I realized Q.V.C. was now offering this line. I am completely happy. This leather is really so very nice. This bag is very soft and pliable...slouchy but sits nicely so one can see contents. I love these straps with two carry options. Next I'm looking for a wrist-let or wallet in olive. I would also love to see a satchel with these features in a more structured version...especially with the two straps. A nice plus to these bags is that they are not heavy and petite girls can carry and look good too. thanks.
LOVE THIS BAG
I bought this bag when it was first aired. I love the rich leather and expecially the side zippers for change and my keys. This is my go to bag because it is not heavy and everything I carry is secure. It is worth the money. I write very few reviews but I will write one on this bag and I must disagree with other review.
Smooth leather and ROUGH zippers
Quality is all over the bag EXCEPT for the zippers. They are so rough and I can't stand rough feeling zippers. I just don't get why these zippers are even used. And this line is designed by WOMEN!?
The leather rivals that of B.Makowsky. The inner lining is super cute. Love the low logo presence. The name is embossed into the leather on one of the bottom corners.
Have to return due to the zippers and they don't open smoothly enough for me. SAD :(
