I bought my first Khalia in the summer of 2019. It has traveled with me to Paris, Chicago, Phoenix, and has been my daily companion at home. I love how easy it is to convert from a shoulder bag to a backpack. While in Paris, I always wore it over my shoulder and felt like I had great access to everything I needed. While in my hometown, I often convert it to a backpack so I can walk with my arms free. I love it so much I'm buying another one in another color.
I love this bag. I wanted a bag that could be my purse but fit extra items in and wear as a backpack when I commute by bike. It has been great for that. I have had it less than a year and I am bummed that it is harder to convert, as the clip broke. I emailed about getting another clip but they kept thinking I was asking about a whole new bag which I wasn't. I wish the interior pockets were a little bigger. The lining on one has ripped from me keeping my wallet in it so I move the wallet to the front compartment with my phone. That compartment if perfect for holding a phone so that you are not digging for it in your bag. I will probably order another Khalia when this one wears out.
I used this bag for a year straight before any seems started ripping. It was most definitely battered and abused and used to carry heavy books, several heavy drinks, a TI-84 calculator, and lots of art supplies; you know, everything school makes you pay for AFTER you already spend all your money on school. I was surprised it lasted as long as it did and it's still use-able as long as im not keeping everything i used to in it!
I moved everything i had in my school backpack(who has three slots) to this bag and i was able to put everything book notebooks. Love this bag
This bag is super! I bought it in early November and it arrived early December, they notified me of shipping delays and responded quickly when I emailed them questions. I’m so thankful if finally arrived, its just as I expected it to be so I will likely order from them again! Great idea being able to turn it into a back pack! makes it a good bag for travels or amusement parks. With that being said it doesn’t truly become a cross body if you are bigger like me. the handle extension is nice if you prefer a little more room for your arm it can be more of a shoulder bag.
I love my purple bag! It is light and it has plenty pockets to keep things organized.
Got this bag as my “airplane” bag. I was tired of the last on I had falling off my shoulder. It is amazing! I use it so much totally Worth is!
Material is lightweight. Not as many inside pockets as I thought and the ones that are there are small and narrow.
The color is gorgeous! I've only had it for two days now, but it is perfect for what I was looking for. The company was very responsive to my inquiries and it proved that they truly care about their customers.
This is great bag. It's the ONLY convertible bag I've seen where the backpack straps don't just slide around when you try to put it on your back! Very ingenious design. Double zippers are all it's missing!
I would love this even more with anti theft locking zippers
Of all the bags i bought this season, this was the one i liked most and the inside lining and outside pockets is excellent! Large capacity and inside i included a bag i had bought here in Ralphany i love all the outside pockets and plus i can cherry it on my back if i ever need to.
I really love this bag. It’s a little floppy and has less structure than I usually like, but the pros ourway the cons. It is a great size. Not too big but not to small, fits all daily essentials plus a ipad or books, if need be. The straps are sturdy and easy to switch from shoulder bag, to crossbody or backpack. Feels likes it’s made from very durable material. If you want a multifunctional bag, try this. Would be great as a travel personal item as well.
I bought this bag to take on my 2-week trip through 4 European cities. It was probably the best thing I could have used for all the tourism! The bag actually switches from cross-body to backpack to side-bag very easily once you get the hang of it (don't try for the first time without putting something in there to help give it some weight). It was INVALUABLE in doing walking tours of the cities (backpack for comfort) to being able to take it into the museums (side bag - because they make you check back packs at the door!)
If you want to keep your stuff with you but also have the convenience of a backpack, I highly recommend this product.
The zippered opening sort of collapses on itself while it is being carried as a backpack which I ended up appreciating as it eased my concerns with pick-pocketers: there was no way anyone was getting into that bag without me noticing. The fabric and design is simple and clean and stood up to quite a beating and different weather conditions on my trip - to that point, it has a nice slim design that allowed it (lightly packed) to fit under my raincoat in the bad weather!
I cannot say enough about this bag! I’m so glad I got it. I travel a lot and needed something that I could carry like a purse and backpack when needed. Look no further!!! It holds four 32 oz water bottles with ease while we were walking around Thailand. It holds three Complete changes of clothes, extra shoes and all of my regular purse stuff while we were taking a small trip to an African village for a few days. All of the kids water toys when we headed to a water park in Korea. Sometimes I forget it’s my actual purse not an extra back pack. The zipper at the top is so strong I never worry about overloading (I swear it goes on forever! I haven’t overloaded it yet!). I use it as my every day purse and the kids have taken to calling it my “Mary Poppins purse.”
Really worked well for me during my travels. A multifunctional bag that doubles as a purse and a backpack! It’s also much more stylish that your typical ‘backpack’. The nylon makes it very easy to just wipe off if anything gets dirty. Also has four small zipper pockets to store little things. I finally found my new travel bag!
I really appreciate the customer service I received and will definitely buy from this seller again! The bag itself is perfect for a commuter. I'm 5'6" so the dimensions are just right for me. I love the fact that it converts into a backpack.
Deux de mes amis m'ont demandé d'où venait mon sac à main LOL ! Je suis une nouvelle maman et ce sac est parfait, quand je suis avec mon bébé, je l'utilise comme sac à dos et quand il n'y a que moi, c'est un sac à main . Le tissu est durable et facile à nettoyer. J'aime aussi les bretelles qu'ils sont super confortables.
Years ago I had a convertible backpack very much like this one and I was in love. I searched far and wide for something, anything, that was similar- and here it is! I bought many other convertible bags through the years, but they all required you to unhook and rehook straps. With this bag all that is needed to change bag types is the way you grab the straps. They slide quickly and easily making my life so much less complicated. I recently went to a museum where backpacks needed to be worn on the front or carried by hand, but all I needed to do was grab my bag from the top to turn it into a shoulder bag. No need for me to pull over to the side and futz around while my group leaves.
I am known to over-pack purses, luggage, candy bags, etc. and this bag has been able to handle it all. I'm very pleased.
The only reason I was contemplative over getting this bag was because I wanted something a little more pizzazz, but I didn't let that stop me from purchasing it. I added a little scarf on the side, just to add a little flair and now I'm even more happy.
My order arrived early and I just love it!
I have so many pockets for my stuff I love it! Also it is light weight. Beautiful color purple.
I Love, Love, Love this bag! It was a great bag when I travelled last week. Perfect!
