Questions about Kooba Sydney

  1. Does anyone have this bag? It's on sale at Neiman Marcus. I'm worried it's too heavy/bulky? Also, is the strap comfortable?

  2. I have one of these in cream. I like it a lot. It's not too big, not too small and comfortable to securely shoulder carry.
  3. It's also one of the lighter Kooba bags.
  4. Is the cream an off-white or a bright white? I would prefer if it's off-white/bone/ivory color, but it's hard for me to tell from the pic.

  5. It's a true cream color - like old fashioned vanilla ice cream.
  6. Has one thousand and one outer pockets. Great for someone who likes organization in their bags. The inside is big and spacious. It really is rather cool but I found I would lose myself time hunting through all the pockets to find what I had in them. The back and front are identical with 2 big pockets each and then those pockets have an additional zipper pocket on them. Then the sides have pockets. The inside has pockets. You like pockets???? THis is the bag for you.
  7. I have fondled that bag at Saks, and the pocket issue hit me, too. I like a nice open bag with a few compartments for cell, sunnies and keys. But it was a nice substantial bag with a great feel!
  8. I like the Sydney. It's a bigger bag in real life than I would have thought. Be warned that the ivory Koobas have had issues with color transfer, smudging and the like. It's a delicate leather. You'll need to be careful with it, baby it a little, to keep it looking good.
