Just received my hobo bag in the ink blue today.I find the quality outstanding and have no issueswith the zipper. The colour is a bit darker than I thought it would be but lovely just the same. I wear a lot of jeans so the color will be perfect as it like another reviewer said like a light navy.My only complaint would be that I do find it a bitheavy. The leather is thick but supple.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love this purse. Got it in the wine shade and love the pop of colour. Very roomy and the outside pockets are great to hold my ID pass for work. I did have problems with the zipper but I worked the leather tab that was tucked inside the purse to the outside and it's been great ever since. It does pop up occasionaly but I fold in down and tuck it up against the shoulder strap. Can't beat the sale price for this one.:-)

I purchased 2 of these purses during the recent clearance sale and so glad I took advantage of it!! I got both the burgundy and the metallic and they both GORGEOUS!! Neither one had any problems with the zippers. I do agree with other reviewers on a couple of points but they are not deal breakers for me. The buckle strap and hardware do make this purse a little on the heavy side and I believe another hole can be punched (just like on a belt) to make the strap a little longer "if" so desired. They are extremely well made and the leather is not flimsy or thin, nice and solid! Definitely a GREAT deal!

After reading some of the reviews regarding the zipper I went ahead & ordered this purse anyway because it looked lovely & was a great deal. Sure enough the purse arrived yesterday & I too had a tough time with the zipper, so tough that I couldn't close the purse! I put my thinking cap on & realized that the problem with the zipper is that the end of it where the leather tab is, was tucked INSIDE the purse. It was a quick fix simply by carefully coaxing the end of the zip OUTSIDE of the purse. Zipper works like a charm now! It's good quality metal zipper. It just was installed improperly in my opinion. The purse arrived packed with paper & unzipped so that tells you something...even staff at TSC warehouse couldn't zip it up!! I've solved the zipper problem & the only other fault is that I wish there had been an additional hole so as to make the shoulder strap a little longer so that I can wear it over my shoulder with my winter coat...options are a good thing! Having said all this, the "ink blue" which I ordered is indeed a light navy, not electric or cobalt blue which I was hoping for, but quite nice all the same & I like the tan trim, it looks classy. The purse is made of beautiful, supple leather & is a nice size for my needs. Keeping it. Could only award four stars though because of that zipper thing. :)

Worst bag I have purchased in a while
When I first purchased this bag I noticed the problems with the zipper but decided to keep it as all the other bags I had didn't have a zipper and I wanted a bag with a zipper for the winter. Really wish now I had returned it. The zipper is extremely frustrating when out shopping. Also after 3 months of use the handle is cracking and starting to break away on the edges. Will stick with The Sak and Soprano handbags in the future. This one is going in the garbage.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have this hobo handbag in the cognac color...it is a lovely color...kind of a cross between pumpkin and rust..beautiful! Unlike other reviewers, I have no zipper issues. The leather is soft and supple - this is my fifth Isaac handbag...he is a "fave", along with Aimee K.
zipper sticks from day one, very poor quality. Nice-looking but heavy, cavernous inside - could use another zippered pocket or divider. Green leather is lovely.

This is the first handbag I've ordered in a long time that I plan to keep, mostly because of the other bags having an intolerable chemical odour. While this bag doesn't have the distinct smell of quality leather, it is good quality for the sale price. It's fairly light weight, and large enough for my needs, and looks like it will last at least a couple of years. The zipper is OK so far, and it has several interior pockets which I like, and for the price I won't be worrying if the kids spill on it either.
BETTER THAN I THOUGHT

This bag is actually very nice in the burgundy colour. It has tan accent pieces on the outer pockets too which sets it apart from other bags. It's a bit on the smallish side (I like a huge bag) but that's just my taste. I would agree with another reviewer(s)that the zipper sticks a bit - but the more I use it the less the sticking occurs. I would definitely recommend it at the sale price - not sure I'd pay full price for it however.

I ordered this bag in metallic and it is a lovely colour. The leather is very nice, soft and good thickness. I do agree with comments about the zipper, though; a couple of times it has got caught and not wanted to zip shut, so I question the quality of it, but so far, it has not broken. The bag is also a bit heavy, but has adequate strap length to comfortably wear over the shoulder, so this is not too much of an issue.Generally, a nice bag for the price, unless the zipper breaks.
