I have other Joey James the Label bags that are smaller for everyday use and I adore them. I needed a bag for travel and this backpack is chic and fun and I found it holds a ton since you can tuck items up in the top. It's great for an iPad on the outside zip sleeve - also where is also where I put my keys and passports. The inside has a waterbottle holder, but on the opposite side of the opening zipper which doesn't go all the way around. so you can't easily grab it out unless you pull other things out of it.
I LOVE that the opening is against your back when worn as a backpack. It felt very safe that way - no one was going to unzip it without you knowing! There are 2 features it needs for me. One is feet - I had it on the floor under my seat of the airplane and on counters daily. It does wash easily with a damp cloth so was easy to keep it's beautiful rich orange hue. The second is a strap to slide the bag over my suitcase when on the move. It won't hang on another way, so I used my cross body belt bag and wrapped it around the whole thing including my suitcase handle to keep it secure. I do recommend it for sure and would purchase it again! I received many compliments on the bag I'm sure because it looks luxe and the color is gorgeous. I can't wait to add more to my collection for every day life. Samantha Tote I'm coming for you!
This is the perfect over the shoulder, backpack bag for me when traveling. It holds everything I need. My business and personal cell phones, water, books, earbuds and medications. Everything is accessible and has a place. Now the leather is super soft and buttery. I can’t wait for future purchases to fill the rest of my needs in my work life and traveling. ♥️
If there was one bag in the entire collection I couldn't give up it's the Katie Backpack. My go-to when traveling. So streamlined int terms of design.. fit water, laptop, personal items etc, but it does NOT look like you are wearing a regular backpack! Gorgeous quality and construction. Feel great wearing it!
I originally got the Mila Mini and loved it so just HAD to get the larger Katie version. Fits my laptop and school books perfectly.
I am an adventurous traveler. I took this bag with me to Alaska and it was the perfect bag. The bag is super spacious inside and carried everything from my wallet, snacks, to my rolled up extra Patagonia jacket. I love the outside side pockets for my water bottle, glasses case, headphones etc. and they’re deep enough that you don’t risk loosing your water bottle. The front zipper allows enough room for my iPad which is super convenient when you have to take it out at the airport..easy out, easy in. Love love this bag!!
