sagging and a long strap designed to be worn on the shoulder.
 Hobo bags are made of soft, flexible materials and tend to stagnate, or sag, when laid down.
There are many different sizes and shapes of this popular women’s fashion accessory.
10 Amazing Hobo Bags On Sale Pictures
I’m so glad I chose this bag! I needed something specifically for day trips and traveling,
and I think this is it. It’s big enough to hold a pair of sneakers, a travel beach towel, a water bottle, my long wallet, my small cosmetics pouch, my phone – with lots of extra room.
It has a top zipper that closes it from end to end- no one can just reach in the back end and grab something like some of the other bags I was looking at (ultimately this is one of the biggest reasons I chose this bag).
Also, the end pockets are really useful for things that aren’t valuable- I’ll keep my water bottle and flip flops in there, plus a small package of baby wipes, bug spray, sunscreen, etc.
The pieces of “leather” on the bottom end stick out really long and weird, so I just cut them, lol. You can’t even tell. I also bought an alternative strap to switch out-
My only real complaint is:
as another reviewer mentioned, the magnetic snap buttons for the end pockets aren’t strong and they unsnap with just a bump.
I prefer the option of 4 smallish pockets rather than 2 biggish ones, so I’ll likely sew it or put on an additional stronger snap.
I included a ton of pics to give people an idea of the real size and to see what it looks like on. For reference, I’m 5’6″ and size 18. The hobo bag is exactly the size I prefer for this style, I love it!
It’s cute, it’s durable, it’s big can fit a book,
water bottle, and all the other useful crap I carry around all day,
and contrary to other reviews, I can fit it over my shoulder without any difficulty.
I think I have pretty normal-sized arms and I was able to carry it on my shoulder while wearing a coat,

I was excited to get this purse. I just pulled it out of the box, and it is beautiful. Just the right size. Not too big, not too small. It is just right for my needs, and has a zipper closure on top! love all the pockets and storage.
It is light, and the strap is just right to fling over my shoulder. I don’t like long purse straps.
This bag is perfect! I will be ordering in another color for sure…maybe aqua or pink! I got the light coffee, and it almost looks grey, but brown…can we say greige! I’m in love!!!
UPDATE: Initially I loved this bag. It is just the right size and I loved everything about it.
I ordered the hot pink for summer as well as the stone color. I am currently using hot pink on a daily basis. And after less than a month of use, the pink is flaking off and looking worn in places. (See pictures). I suppose for the price – you get what you paid for. But I am less than disappointed that it is already looking shabby and worn after only using for less than a month! Don’t buy this bag!
This is a great bag. I bought a winter bag for $250 an didn’t want to spend much for a spring bag. This is incredible for the price. While some may call this a small bag, it is clearly a medium to me. It fits my zipper checkbook, wallet, datebook, little makeup pouch, many extras and several spots for cell phone, calculator, tissues, etc. It doesn’t have feet, as someone pointed out, but it feels sturdy, and the strap is just the right size in width and length. I bought the stone, but if it holds up well, I will buy another color for this price!

I waited a week to review so I could see how I liked it, and I LOVE it! Just the right size and color. The zippers (with the exception of the middle inside pocket) are high quality and don’t snag. I love that if I don’t want to zip it, it holds itself open and upright (as long as it has enough stuff in it). If you’re not a lover of ridiculously large purses and just need something cute, high quality, and functional to carry your stuff… buy this hobo bag!
Just the right size. I love everything about this hobo bag. Even the inside compartments although the ones on the side are small they are perfect for my trinkets and gadgets
Medium size hobo bag with room and designed nicely. Bought the black version; it’s made of vegan leather and my looks very nice, had no smell, & stitching is great. Two outer pockets hold my keys, and my cell phone with room to spare. I was hoping for room inside to carry a personal water bottle and it will (partly because it has a flat bottom). In fact, I put a pair of regular slip-on shoes inside when visiting a friend last night instead of socks. The lining, if “plastic” is flexible high-end textured with pattern with look & strength of fabric but also waterproof! I was not sure I would like the wide shoulder strap but it is so comfortable and does not slide off the shoulder so I count it a plus! I panicked when it first arrived as all the zippers were gapped in a section … quickly learned they are “self-healing”. Trying to convince me it’s not too selfish to buy another … in navy.
I love this hobo bag. As many other reviewers have said, it’s not too big or too small. I’m able to stuff a ton in it when traveling but it’s fine as is with just my wallet and phone as well. The interior pockets and separator sections are useful and it’s easy to adjust the strap. I like the exterior zippered pocket is for my keys and the hobo bag horizontal pocket for my phone. Well thought out purse!

I’ve been looking for a long time like a lot of people and, was getting very ‘skeptical”, about materials, sizes, the whole package…finally decided “one’ more time…and I am really really, pleased, very nice wine color, good size, nice material, nice sections inside I like it so much ordered another in black..that’s me when I like something I want it in every color they have lol..but I think 2 is gonna have to be it for now..the description of this hobo bag is very very accurate…try it you won’t be disappointed, unless you’re over the top fussy.. mean that in a nice way.. 🙂 JK
This purse is a really nice size – not too big and not too small, with lots of compartments to use to keep everything organized. Looks very nice as well.
Really love this purse. I didn’t like the shorter strap, however. The hardware is too heavy and oversized and the strap is too short. I wish the manufacturer had included hardware such that the longer strap can be used without the shorter one. So, I just added two silver split rings and now just use the longer strap by itself.
The faux leather is soft and supple. It actually looks nicer than some leather purses I have had like the Sak hobo this one replaced. Love the turquoise color! I also ordered one in the indigo blue color. I wish I could get one in fuschia or dark purple.
The color is so rich of a brown & looks EXACTLY like the picture. The size is absolutely perfect. When it got here it was wrapped so good.
Very securely the strap was detached from the purse so they could wrap it separately to keep it in good condition (I Luv that) so I unwrapped it & hooked it to the purse (of course duh lol) & I Luv the design of the strap & buckles. I love the single strap so one doesn’t slip off your shoulder as u try to keep em together. The strap is wide & VERY comfortable. It’s butter-soft but has a soft firm feel of stability. It stands on its own (no feet of course but no biggie) got enough pockets. The back zippered pocket is wide & deep for my phone (VIP) which I really need. The inside is a great width on each side of the divider pocket.
I absolutely love this purse (& I’ve bought ALOT lately trying to find my perfect purse & my husband is happy of that lol) it’s amazing. They shipped it in 1 day & I got it in like 2 days tops. Depends where u live tho of which fulfillment center it comes out of (they find em closest to where u live & mine came out of Humble Tx. Anyway order this for Christmas (still time) cause I HIGHLY recommend it & you’ll be happy.
It’s made very well very sturdy & soft. Zippers work great & made sturdy (nothing cheaply made @ all) & all the lining is intact & not loose either. Just an all-around the perfect purse. I really pray it holds up for a VERY VERY long time (I’m tired of buying purses & hunting for the right size cool purse. Great job guys & Amazon.

This bag is beautifully made, a synthetic material that looks like leather. The color Champagne is gorgeous, not silver, not gold…perfect for someone who wants that in-between color. But the BEST part is that the straps/handles are interchangeable. This is not one of those bags that has that annoying shorter strap hanging down on the hobo bag while you attach and use the longer strap (like I do for a cross-body bag). Each handle/strap snaps on and off so you have just ONE strap on the hobo bag at one time. BRILLIANT!!! All bags should be made like this.
Perfect size. So many pockets and middle section to keep things separated for easier finding. The color was perfect for what I was looking for. Loved the hobo bag so much I bought it in black and plan to buy other colors too in the near future.
This was a gift for my daughter who has been looking for over a year for a bag like this. We finally found one. The size is perfect and she loves the color. The matching smaller bag is an added bonus.
Yes Ladies (and some gents), this is bad to the bone super sincere fashion-forward hobo bag. It doesn’t hesitate, to be cool, to show taste and to be efficiently large enough for just about anything you need day to day, while still maintaining its capacity to be the best “go-to” if you need to run somewhere for the weekend. Plus, it looks really good doing it. 5 stars.

Wowwwww! I’m impressed! I ordered and received this hobo bag the same day and am quite pleased with my purchase! The purse is actually larger than I was anticipating – which isn’t a bad thing! You know how it goes, our purses are either too small or too big, never just right! Ha! The purse comes with a little mini purse that is perfect for makeup or incidentals (and it comes with a Lil Clippy strap if you’d like to clip it to the mommy purse). Inside is also a crossbody strap for big mama but you don’t really need it because the purse sits just perfectly under your arm. The fringe is a nice change from what I’m used to and is fun to fiddle with while strutting! I think once the material wears in a bit, this purse has the potential to be one of my favorites of all time!
I LOVE THIS hobo bag!. It is large and roomy as I prefer.
It comes with an attached pouch inside It has 2 different handles so that you can carry it on your shoulder or use as a cross body, messenger bag, which is great when traveling.
I wanted a medium purse that could be used both as a shoulder and crossbody bag. This comes with two straps that can be swapped out to make it one or the other.
It seems well made for the price and will meet my needs as I’m someone who likes minimal, functional purses because, in all honesty, I have neither the space nor bank account for several pricier bags. Will it hold my wallet and my phone? Yes? PERFECT.
The color is slightly darker than the photo—more of a coffee brown, which I like.
I never could keep up with the times. Gold’s not my favorite, but, again, minor detail.
The only downside, depending on your preference, is that the bag is smaller than it appears in the picture.I don’t THINK it’s big enough for a regular tablet, but I’m pretty sure you could squeeze a Kindle in here. I like that it’s not TOO deep so I’m not diving in for my keys, but you certainly have to prioritize what you’re putting in there.
There are two large zippered pockets and two open little punches inside, which I like very much.
So far, it’s a keeper!
I needed a small to a medium purse for an up coming event. I am on a fixed income and not able to spend what I would really like. However, I am very happy with the quality of this purse.
This purse is nicely made, at the bottom of the purse there are pleats at all four corners, which I feel it makes unique in its own way.
There are 2 inside pockets, and a pocket in the middle of the purse inside. Also has 1 pocket on the outside. Which I like to use for my keys.
The color is a coffee color with some lighter color of coffee high lights. The material is nice n soft.
The size of the purse is a small-medium which is what I was hoping for.Delivered fast.

Exactly what I was looking for. I didn’t want a big old lady purse and this fit the bill. I only used it for a week or two though because after I put all my stuff in, the purse was so fat it looked ridiculous. Maybe if I get a slimmer wallet and put less stuff in there it would be fine. At this point in my life, I need to carry a suitcase. In the future, I plan on using it again because I really do like it.
Another great addition to my everyday bag collection. The material looks and feel like real leather. It’s easy to clean. The color is great and goes with anything. I love that it’s small enough to not be heavy but big enough to carry all my essentials without being overly weighted and bulky. I’ve been using for work, church, and play. It came with two detachable straps that create two totally different looks. One is short to wear close to the body and others can be used to wear as a crossbody. Very versatile.
I am PICKY about my purses and I really like this one. The short handle is removable (I hate multiple handles). The interior of the black purse is brown. I would have preferred a different color, but the brown is better than black. The purse closes with a zipper and you can see the main interior when you open it. The outside “leather” is super soft and feels good to the touch. If it holds up to everyday use, I’ll order again.
Big, but not too big! If I pack it with heavy things, it’ll be a burden, but I’m using it for books and everyday items and it isn’t too heavy. I love that the strap can be short (for elbow carry) or long (for cross-body– you think I wanna elbow carry in a snow jacket with three babies?) and there are three easy-to-reach outside pockets (I’m not rifling through my purse for keys in the winter, just sticking them in one of the outer zipper pouches, and all three have zippers). The inside has an open slot, a zippered slot, and another open slot (so that my books slide in easily, but my “lady paraphernalia” can be concealed by the middle slot).
Two open pouches on one open slot and a zippered pouch in the other open slot. The top of the purse zips shut so I don’t have to worry about pickpockets. Honestly, this bag is a lifesaver: spaces for everything, easy to organize my stuff, good closures, and the cross-body strap is sturdy!
This is my new favorite bag and if I won the lottery, I’d buy a bunch and hand them out to my friends.

My new favorite bag! I ordered khaki but they sent me apricot. I debated sending it back,
but I love the color so I kept it. I plan to order another in black.
Perfect because it fits an 8.5×11” folder for work, with separate compartments.
Love the shoulder strap and crossbody strap which is actually long enough for me (I’m tall).
This bag is light and roomy and fantastic!
The top zipper seems not to be fastened at the end very well.
have to hold end when using to close. Otherwise, seems well-made, Lots of room, and the longer strap is way long enough for crossbody use.
The handbag a little on the heavy side, but the metal accounts for some of the weight.
All in all, it is well worth the price and will get a lot of use. I carry my life (it seems) in my bag.
and there is room to do so.
This purse worked perfectly for a trip to Europe. Please note that the current model is different from some of the pictures/videos listed in older reviews as far as how the clips connect (see pictures). The top zipper has the connector/clasp and connects to a ring on the top to secure it (the older model had the opposite where the top zipper had a ring that would connect to a connector/clasp on the purse). A similar change to the front zip pocket. The side pockets hold regular-sized water bottles as well as small water bottles (12 oz bottle in the picture). The only thing I didn’t like about the purse is when the purse arrived the hook/clasp on the purse handle was not connected to the handle (the hook/clasp is shown in the picture with the water bottle) … you had to put it together yourself which posed a bit of a challenge since a) there were no instructions on how to do it and b) the small “c” clip that was supposed to keep the hook/clasp attached kept falling off (I had to use a set of pliers to tighten the “c” clip a bit before I used the clip to fasten the connector … it stayed on after that but I was still worried that the “c” clip would fall off). A suggestion for Travelon/seller would be to have that hook/clasp already attached when sending to the purchaser.
Took to Paris, March 2017. Loved it. Let me say first I am a designer bag, the only girl. So, this is my first non-designer bag in years. I am so glad I choose this one. It held up really well.
I used this bag every day in Paris for a week. It held 2 bottles of water, a camera, phone, 1 small 1st aid kit, pocket travel book, tickets for attractions, 5 snack bars, billfold, small roll-up tote, with room leftover. Served a family of 5 well.
I am 5 feet tall, and the bag wasn’t huge on me. Loved the locking zippers. Two girls standing practically next to us near Notre Dame were arrested for pick pocketing.
Someone tried to get my husband, he stopped them, and luckily I had his stuff in my bag. So yes it does happen.
It didn’t rain while we were there so I don’t know if it is waterproof.
I did take a couple of Ziploc bags and put my camera, billfold, tickets, and travel book in just in case. I just recommended this bag to two co-workers traveling abroad.

Travel bag workhorse. So practical for those who enjoy walking Europe. Love that I can fit my DSLR camera no problem inside with more than enough room for rain shell (doubles as padding), in what I would consider a medium-sized bag. Quality made.
Very durable material. Crossbody style, RFID protection, secured zippers, locking strap, etc. provide peace of mind. Plenty of zippered pockets for water bottles, maps, credit cards, chapstick, hand gel, kleenex, sweater, camera & more. I’m an LL Bean Stowaway daypack kind of girl on domestic & most international trips & for me this is a more secure travel option that fits the bill nicely.
It is water-resistant for walking in rain (my items stay dry) but I haven’t tested it in an absolute downpour. Since I carry my camera in this bag, I wear my LL Bean Gortex rain shell over it for protection in torrential downpours & Cross-Body fits comfortably underneath. Note: some European hotels provide umbrellas for use during a stay at no charge so I don’t pack one.
Travel tip: Do not let ANYONE walk away with your passport.
Once on an overnight rail, officials checking id asked to take our passports & return them in the morning.
I kindly said I didn’t want to do that & asked if there was another option.
I was told the alternative was we would be woken up & passports checked again in the middle of the night.
My wife bought this purse since she didn’t have a good-sized purse for travel and she absolutely loves it.
It’s very intelligently designed lightweight and a really pretty purple. The size is also perfect
– it easily fits her tablet (which is not a mini), wallet, passport, travel guide, glasses case, sunglasses, phone, keys,
headphones, sweater, snacks, and a variety of other travel items
Her only complaint is she didn’t realize when she bought it that the RFID blocking ability was only in a few credit card slots that are built into the side of the purse,
instead of the whole purse being RFID blocking.
Fortunately, however, one of the slots is big enough for her to fit her small travel wallet inside, so it doesn’t really matter.
Okay so probably for the first time I have a lukewarm review for something I bought. The handbag is exactly as it looks in the ad and there is nothing wrong with it, just thought it would be a bit bigger. It really is attractive and you probably won’t see this handbag on anyone else–the problem–if you are like me and you like your hands free you aren’t going to have that with this bag. The handles have no room to slide up your arm, especially over a coat so you have to use a hand to carry this. There are however very nice straps in the handbag that clip on the sides. I usually do not use these straps. With this handbag, I will use them to slide it on my shoulder. There are two thin straps, not one thick strap which is kind of nice and I clipped them on immediately. This is nice for any occasion. I bought this for work. It will work for me. But I doubt my book will fit in it. It is really different looking though. And it goes well with the gray coat I bought from Amazon. I will need a tote however to lug my books with me.
I love the look of this purse and it was just the right size I was looking for. The color is really pretty. I love the nice soft gray. I love all the zippers and it has plenty of storage capacity for a purse that is not ultra big. It is lightweight, which is a bonus, too. It feels like it is made out of paper and makes a crinkly sound, which I do not like. Otherwise, I really like the purse a lot!

It’s a unique style. The quality is great. I like the tiny accessory it looks cute. It’s a good size to put all my things. The zipper works perfectly.
I like all these extra side pockets (two on each thin side, one long low one and one upper short one). It lets me keep my items like phone, lip balm or keys in easy reach. I also like how the bottom has these studs so it stays off the ground.
yes, this purse is thin and slouchy.
It does not completely close but there is a magnet, and a little hook and eye kinda clasp to keep it somewhat closed.
I typically prefer bags with a zipper and an exterior pocket for phones or chapstick.
this has neither and I still love it.
I use the liner closed zipper bag in a bag to hold all the nondaily stuff
like all the junk we keep in our purses for husbands or kiddos.
and I leave my wallet, keys, phone, pen, and chapstick in the large part of the bag.
I love it! it is super soft and slouchy.
not stiff or rigid. It looks very casual and kinda relaxed. I want navy blue and army green. I need more colors than black, brown, and red.
my least favorite purse colors.
I bought dark grey and it basically looks like black to me, but again.
I still love it!
As pictured and destined. Soft silk-like insert inside to help organize inside. Soft leather, no offensive odor, color is a bit more orange than I’d hoped… but matches the color on my screen. I’m using it and the black version exclusively now as my go-to bags.

I got the gray – just the right color not to light not too dark. Plenty of room in the bag for lots of stuff. I wasn’t sure I would like the handle – but I do. I don’t like a bag that is open to the world – this bag has a clasp to – but I like how it keeps the thing in my bag for my eyes only.
Wow!!!! wow!!!! This bag is gorgeous!!!! I just received it and it’s very soft and light. I think I’m going to order another color!!!!
