I gave my daughter 2 of them not knowing which pattern she would like. She uses both. Puts half her books in one and the other half in the other - she has a lot of books! Keeps her organized and they look really great. Have never seen anything like them before.
OMG. I just received my bag today. I love love it. I love the shape the size, i love the martial. I just love everything about this beautiful bag iwwent back to get another one. The value is unbelievable. Thanks over stock. I have about 9 gigi hill bags now in every shape and size. Great hand bag.
I bought total of 13 pieces of totes, backpacks, suitcases, messenger bag, & duffels. I am giving some as gifts and I am sure they will be appreciated. One simply can't beat the price for the quality, style, and pattern/color one gets. The backpacks are simply beautiful and unique in colors, but it's a bit on the heavy side. The zipped interior pocket is small but there is a keychain holder which helps. The Velcro strap for closure on the outside adds more security. It's generous in size so it can be a large purse or a medium backpack. But the backpack straps aren't ergonomically designed or padded so don't expect comfort if one packs a heavy load. I am using a cane for support so the backpack won't get in the way. It's a more stylish than using a regular school backpack for children. Overall, I am happy with what I bought and can't wait to use the suitcase and tote.
This is a very nice backpack/purse. I have been looking for one this size for a while as the tiny one I carry all the time is just too darn small. This on is very roomy, will carry all my stuff, and is nicely finished off on the inside.
It's a great size for a large purse, the interior compartments are very small though, especially the zip pouch. The material it is made out of is stiff and slick. On the upside it won't get dirty. I did notice some discoloration on the back where the wrapped straps were resting against the white purse. For the super discounted price it doesn't bother me but be warned if you buy the lighter colors. Plenty of room in this purse to fit an Ipad or kindle in it's case.
Wow these backpack are beautiful. I am a backpack purse type of gal, don't like to have to hold a purse nor have the purse on my shoulder (it usually slides off). Afew years ago backpack purses were all the rage, now you can't find them. It's so hard to find a backpack purse, let alone one that is beautiful and doesnt look like your going out camping :-) These are beautiful, they are very large though. I was floored at how much space the purse has, I'm scared I'm going to over fill my purse, I'm good at that. But they are exquisitly made, very sturdy and beautiful design. I bought 4, just in case I like them and they run out....I love them all. I just ordered another one and a couple of wallets and check covers. These backpacks are well worth the money, heck I could see paying *** a bag (I'm cheap and it's hard thinking *** let alone ***. But *** a purse,! you can't beat that with a stick :-)
I bought my first Rachel backpack a year ago, and it was STOLEN out of my locked car (window got broken), along with all the contents in it. When giving the police report, I found myself saying, "I'm really going to miss that purse. It was my favorite." Fast forward to this year: Thanks to Overstock, I've been able to get 2 more Rachels in different patterns to suit my preference or the season at the time. I took one this fall on vacation to a theme park, and with our family of four, I was actually able to pack snacks, money, cell phone, some extra clothes, and even a water bottle or two. It looks nice enough to be consider high end, but yet it's rugged enough to hold all that stuff, and it just wiped clean at the end of the day. Gigi Hill, I'm sad to see you go.
This is my 2nd Gigi Hill bag and this one arrived well packaged and wrapped so as not to scratch or tear the material. Perfect size to carry, either on the shoulder, in hand, or on the back as a backpack. The quality of material is high for the price of this bag and I have been shopping for a quality bag since Christmas. They are expensive and not so well made so Overstock, you have done it again! Good merchandise at a reasonable price.
I bought the backpack for a Christmas gift. I loved the quality and the design so much that I ordered a second backpack for myself. This is perfect for day trips and outings where you will be away from home for an extended period of time.(going to the zoo or to a museum for the day) Functional yet fashionable. Gigi Hill has become my new favorite in handbags, sorry to see they are out of business.
Bought this as a gift for my daughter She loves it! She saw someone at her work with one and asked where they got it. What she normally would pick out I would consider too old for her 21 years. Finally she found something that I feel is more for her age!!!
