Rated 3 out of 5 by DrPebbles Not a hobo bag
I'm disappointed at this product is misnamed. It's not a hobo bag, it's an overnight bag. I blame myself for not closely looking at the measurements, but I've come to trust LL Bean so much that I failed myself. I REALLY want a hobo bag -- a normal-sized purse --- that has all these wonderful security features. So I'm not returning it, just hoping to get your attention for creating an item that really is a hobo bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GrannieBeanie Perfect bag for a trip
I bought this bag for a trip due to its safety features and roominess. I had room for my camera, iPad, a bottle of water, and anything else I wanted to carry. The water resistant feature also came in handy as I did not have the worry about getting it wet like I do with a leather purse. Unlike what another reviewer said, the handle length is indeed adjustable. I don't plan to use this bag for every day; but it will go on every trip. I recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SchoolSLP Lightweight, Strong, and Intuitive
I got this bag because a wanted a cross body bag that was light, roomy, and strong for work. I was worried that it would be too big, but it is just right for carrying my work binders, iPad, personal items, etc. I like the design which features a big, central pocket, and interior, side pockets for iPad/laptop, smaller pockets for phones, pens, sunglasses, etc, and a roomy interior zippered pocket. The inside design and layout of the pockets seem completely intuitive to how I use my bag. The material is really soft, but strong. It completely repelled water when I got caught out in the rain. The cinched, outside end pockets are really useful for holding a water bottle, or umbrella. The padded strap is very comfortable. It has a lot of additional safety features, too. I am so glad I got this bag. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BusyMomandOT If you have a lot to carry!
I read the other 2 reviews and decided to go ahead and purchase this bag. It is true, it is BIG! But it is perfect for what I do! I am a busy mom and an itinerant occupational therapist. That being said, I juggle my personal and professional life. This bag is perfect for my professional calendar, my tablet, cell phone, wallet, and occasionally toys or other types of supplies that I need to carry into my client's homes! I can safely carry my personal and professional items, keeping them organized as well as safe. Things are separate and so far, I have been able to find whatever I need within seconds. I have looked for years for something that is durable and professional looking that I could carry it all! Thanks for carrying this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ginOs totally thrilled
this bag is HUGH and has many exciting feature ... clips to lock zippers, locking clip for strap, snapping tabs (don't know what they do), various inside pouches, area for iPad or small laptop and several D-rings to adjust the Hobo shoulder strap. I didn't understand the "safty" features, but with the info included with purse, I'm thrilled. THANKs for such a great product!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by GreenLover Disappointed
I just received this bag and I'm afraid it will have to go back. The bag is huge and has an extremely long shoulder strap. I cannot find any way to shorten it. Being 5' 4" tall the bag hangs way too far down and I feel like I have a suitcase hanging over my shoulder. There are several zipper departments but it's hard to determine what they are for. For the price of this bag I expected something attractive and practical. This bag is neither. Sorry LL Bean! Usually I like your products but this one's a disappointment.
