Rated 5 out of 5 by BacktoTory second choice but turns out better than the first!
My first choice was the Amanda Double-zip- but, it has, what I consider, a design flaw... and was returned. The strap is connected to the lining inside. The lining pulls out when the bag is lifted by the strap- even without anything in the bag. The one I received also had very crooked and uneven seems on one side .
This Classic Hobo is great. The size is perfect and the removable strap is attached to the outside of the bag- as it should have been on the Double-zip. But, you can also carry it as a satchel or put the handles on your shoulder- as well as carrying it cross-body. The bag is roomy and can be used daytime for work or casual weekends. Try it! You will not be sorry.

I am very impressed with the quality of this bag and love the gold hardware. Bigger than appeared on the site, so a substantial size purse that holds a lot of items. Really like how even though slouchy, it is still structured and polished.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JB06 Great Bag!
I purchased this bag in store this past weekend and I love it. The size is perfect - not too big, not too small. It's a really heavy, durable bag and the leather is nice and thick. I'm very happy with the purchase and the matching Continental wallet is a great addition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kaitlin22 The PERFECT BAG!
I had been wanting this purse for months now and as soon as it arrived I loved it! I carry it with me to places that I don't even need to just because I cannot put it down! The one downside is that the purse itself is somewhat heavy even without anything in it. Other than that it is perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Steph bought when it first came out
I fell in love with this bag back when it originally came out in 2010 and knew I had to have it. I finally was able to justify the purchase when my birthday rolled around in December 2010 and I have carried it ever since. I LOVE THIS BAG and am seriously considering buying another in the same color to serve as the replacement when my original finally wears out. The Amanda hobo is the PERFECT SIZE for an everyday bag (unless you have little kids) and I love its versatility.
The only real downsides to this bag are 1) the cloth interior, which is sub-par quality for a bag so expensive, and 2) after a while, the shoulder strap will start to leave marks across clothes. It's hard to tell whether it's just gotten dirty or whether the actual material is starting to rub off. Either way, this bag is worth it and easily remains my absolute favorite handbag of all time.

Rated 2 out of 5 Love the look of the bad, but quality is fair
I purchased this bag in driftwood. Received the bag and loved the color and style. I have carried the bag for about a month now and it is showing serious signs of wear. I have not been rough on the bag, but there are several marks where the leather has already been damaged. Wish the leather was higher quality and would not have shown signs of wear so quickly.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Astromom Test of time
I have had this handbag in the cognac color for about 6 months and it is already showing major signs of wear. I noticed when I purchased it that the leather on one handle was smooth and the leather on the other handle had a drier pice with a pebbled texture. It didn't seem like a big deal at the time and I overlooked it because I loved the bag so much. The drier piece of leather is now beginning to discolor and turn black. Also, some of the stitching has started to come undone. I have other designer handbags that have lasted multiple years before showing these signs of wear, and they were much less expensive. I love the style, color and size of this bag, but I'm disappointed with the quality and workmanship. I expected more, especially for the price I paid.
