Great Slight Design Modification
Was excited about this crossbody due to the outside pocket to hold my kindle e-reader..which I dont leave home without.
Pros: My kindle fits nicely hardcover protective case and kindle combine. Inside is roomy enough to handle my wristlet, small photoalbum, keys and kindle also at times.
Cons: With kindle in from pocket it tends to make the purse hang too much towards the pocket and tips easily when leaning over or bending with purse on. If you dont have it zipped your stuff falls out as its out of balance.
Design sugguestion change: Prehaps if the strap was attached on opposite sides of the zipper it would help offset the weight in the pocket.

Lots of room and can use as purse without tablet
Originally had mailbag to carry my ipad2 on occasion. Thought bag would be great since i love the hipster, but just didn't work for me. Saw the new tablet bag and new cross over body bag and was leaning to cross body until I saw this bag. iPad fits in perfectly with a case on it. Love having an inside pocket, open pockets and additional outside pocket besides flap. Holds my turn lock wallet easily and can even put the small hipster inside as well. Plenty of room and great looking traditional purse. Bought it in baroque and can't wait to use it.

Not just for iPad
I purchased this to tote around my Windows Surface tablet. Most of the iPad designed products won't accommodate the Surface due to its elongated screen, but this hipster is perfect! Some other reviews mentioned that it is front-heavy when a tablet is in the pocket, but I only found that issue when I tried to carry it on one shoulder. It's clearly designed to be a cross-body, and when utilized that way, there aren't any balance issues.
