Just received my Kate Bedford in black! It is just beautiful and allows for amazing organization. Fits the bill perfectly for work and travel. I have spent much more for other bags that proved to be impractical . This bag is perfect! Thanks for making it in the USA!! That means a lot to me! I will be back for more!
I purchased Kate as I wanted a bag big enough to cart around all my work items. For ages I have had a bag to carry my laptop, ipad and other work needs, and a separate handbag for my purse and other personal items. Well - thanks to the Kate - I now only need one bag for work. This is a great bag - and all the pockets make it easy for me to find things. I always know where my things are instead of endless searching feeling for items at the bottom of a bag. This was my first MZ Wallace bag and since then, I have purchased 4 others. I'm a convert for sure!
Purchased the Kate as a baby bag and completely fell in love with it! Organization is amazing and plenty of room for all of baby's needs. Love the durable material which is easy to wipe and clean as well. However, after a half a year of use (and I am very gentle with my beautiful bags), all of the zippers started to get really stuck. Definitely a struggle to open and close. They don't even round the corners to unzip. I had to leave this bag in the closet as it was just too much of a pain. I want to use it again, but what to do about the zippers?!
Love Kate! I'm on my second one. It's the perfect business travel bag. Fits my laptop, files, headphones and a giant bottle of water underneath the airplane seat and looks fabulous. I love seeing fellow MZW loyalists on my work travels rocking the same bag! Please make this a travel version like the Frankie! PLEASE!!! Ready for my 3rd TRAVEL Kate!
Amazing bag--I am able to fit a couple legal-sized files and my Surface Pro with no problems. Love all the pockets. It's a great work, diaper, and travel bag for sure. My "wish list" for this bag would be to change the rolled handles to flat leather ones like the Roxy, to re-position the front pockets so that the large zip pocket is on the right side rather than the left so that it's easier to access when I have it over my (right) shoulder, and to have a long zippered pocket on the front like the large Roxy and the Belle. With those things added it would literally be THE PERFECT bag.
If, like me, you are the sort of person who likes to be organized and have a place for everything, then this is the bag for you. I use this as my daily work bag. There are so many pockets that I always know where everything is. The bag holds a lot and is of exceptional quality. Some reviewers said the shoulder straps are uncomfortable, but I do not find this to be the case for me.
This is a large bag that holds a lot without appearing bulky. I hope the nylon will hold up and resist stains. I would have preferred the amethyst with gold/bronze hardware. But I bought it as I love purple.
Hands down, by far the most wonderful mom bag anyone could ask for. There are so many pockets I have no need for extra organizers. There is a place for everything. It stands up to my baby's drool and dirt, and still looks gorgeous enough to walk into a party with it on my shoulder-baby or no baby. I may never use another bag again...unless I get my hands on Roxy :)
I want to say fortunately for me, maybe unfortunately for MZ Wallace, this is the last purse I will ever need! It is large enough that I can commute to work and no need to bring my extra tote bag to cart around my other things. It will go with everything, and the inside is my signature color. And the best part, I ordered it just this past Friday, and Saturday morning, FedEx was there delivering it! I have been loving this for three days already and I will love it forever!
I finally purchased this most perfect bag. I love, love, love it. I don't have any babies but I do carry a lot of "stuff" and it all fits in this bag with room to spare. No more searching at the bottom for everything. All those wonderful deep interior pockets organizes everything . The exterior compartments keep my keys, metro card , cell phone ,etc right in reach with a nice long easy to pull thin tassel.. The red leather trim is stunning. The style is simple and the size is not overbearing and most of all it is light weight. I don't know how I went from bag to bag before I made this wisest of purchases .My search has ended. I treasure my beautiful Kate.
I have grown to love this bag. As a mom of 3 (one newborn and 2 elementary aged boys) this bag is perfect. POCKETS galore, inside and out AND space left over inside for an area to just throw things like a blanket or jacket. In many popular diaper bags, the pockets take up too much of the open space in it-not this bag. Besides MZ Wallaces popular and standard 6 pockets, the Kate has an additional 6 open pockets in the lining and those are PERFECT for things like sunglasses, bibs, snacks, lipgloss, toys, quick access wipes etc... The reason I deducted one star is that it does get heavy when completely filled and for the first week or two of using it, I thought I might return it. But when I packed up my old purse and used it for a day, I realized that living without the thoughtfully and perfectly laid out pockets in the Kate would be torture. I am a baby wearer and now I barely even notice the bag's weight. I don't pack it completely full (unless I'm traveling and then I push it on top of my suitcase so the weight doesn't bother me). I also use the small Sutton for quick trips (into grocery store or to pick up other kids from school) and the metro backpack for long days out (like a museum day) when hands free is needed.
I'm absolutely in love with the Kate! While it's billed as a diaper bag (and comes with a changing pad), it is the perfect workbag. I was tired of carrying a purse and one bag for my laptop and decided to splurge and buy the Kate. It not only fits my 15 inch laptop and battery, but all of my essentials (hair brush, gloss, balm, Advil, breath mints, tissues, etc), but has enough pockets for headphones, pens, my parking pass and more. I also have to walk over to my client's offices several times a week and it's so nice to have everything in one place. And if I ever have a baby on the way, the Kate can transition from work to Mommy mode nicely without looking like a diaper bag. I highly recommend it!
I was using this as a work bag, but I recently used it as my carry on bag on my last flight. It has a ton of pockets, inside and out, which makes it easy to keep organized. Highly recommend!
I absolutely love this bag. I bought it a few years back when I was expecting my first baby. It is perfect for toting around baby necessities and is super easy to keep clean. I love that it fits my needs as a mom without me having to compromise on style. I have recommended it to all of my girlfriends as a must have have when expecting a new addition to the family. It simply never disappoints.
Just received this bag today for a trip next week. I am now asking myself why I didn't order this bag earlier. I travel a bit, and I had been using a popular travel bag that is really one large sack. I got so tired of trying to dig for travel documents and other odds and ends that I decided to purchase the Kate. Some have mentioned that it resembles a "diaper bag", but I don't think so. I ordered the Dawn, which is a sophisticated navy. It is gorgeous and practical. The fact that it will stand up if you set it down is also appreciated. Yet is is still soft against the body when you carry it crossbody. But if you do carry it as a diaper bag, what a great diaper bag you are toting!
Kate is the best all around bag. Great for busy moms on the go without looking like a baby bag. Super functional and stylish.
I love MZ Wallace bags and have about 6. I purchased the Kate "diaper bag" as my work briefcase and adore it! As always, it is indestructible and takes a lot of abuse! I fit my THINKPAD, makeup case, huge wallet (it's doubles as my "daily bag"), brush, file folders, two Iphones, various charging cords -- and I can get that bag to weigh close to 20 pounds!!! Not a scratch on it! Many of our female executives have now joined those of us who have no infants or small children but use the Kate baby bag easily and with pleasure as our "work" bag. I also use the cross body for every trip I take and I travel about 45 days of the year. 6 years old and still going strong. MZ Wallace is one of the finest, best made and easy to love accessories ever! Susan
This bag travels so well with me. It carries my laptop easily. I love all the pockets, inside and out. This color will work well with my coat.
I love the Kate bag for use on weekend trips. It recently helped me keep everything organized for an important family occasion. The Kate bag holds up well as an extra bag for formal events that require taking along a change of clothing or other necessities. I so much enjoy using it!
Kate is a wonderful bag! I purchased it two years ago and it still looks brand new. The classic black with the red lining is absolutely stunning and timeless. Originally, I used it as my baby bag. The external pockets were perfect for bottles, pacifiers, and other items you need to access quickly. Now I use the bag for work or travel. My iPad air and charger fit in the large back pocket. The row of 6 pockets on the inside are quite narrow and it can be hard to reach the bottom, but they work for slim items like pens or lipstick. I also own a Belle and love them both equally. The classic Mz Wallace bags can't be beat for style, functionality, or quality!
My wife loves this for travel - it's the perfect size for her to carry on a plane and keep her essentials close. It's heavy, so pack something else to use as your purse at your destination!
The Perfect Bag. I am on the go being a pedestrian in NYC where one has to look chic and at the same time keep up with the fast pace. The design of this bag allows you to assign outside pockets for essentials so they are always at hand and you are never searching the interior while trying to do transactions, grab your phone, find your metro card, etc. The interior is big enough for your files, your iPad, your make up, your chargers, and the long back russeted pocket can handle your gym clothes or a big scarf. It is great that you have two outside pockets for a water bottle so water doesnt empty out in your bag. (I do wish MZ Wallace would put that feature into more designs) I keep my sunglasses in the other pocket.
My wife considers this her classic style of MZ Wallace shapes so I purchase various colors for her. She especially appreciates the various compartments, which help her keep everything organized, both inside and outside, which is important for her during the day. The purse itself is relatively lightweight so it can be filled and yet much more comfortable to carry throughout the day than some leather purses. The many zippers also provide additional protection when out in crowds.
I use Kate as my carry on bag. It is roomy. The outside pockets are great for extra glasses,etc. At Christmas I am able to fit smaller previous gifts like jewelry in the bottom. And as with all MZ Wallace bags smudges of dirt can easily be wiped away with a damp cloth. This was my second MZ Wallace bag and I have been hooked on the brand ever since. I love having a beautiful unique bag that many women in the Midwest are not familiar with.
I purchased the Kate bag this summer. I've traveled all over the US and internationally with it and it is fantastic, so many pockets to keep organized. Can't tell you how many compliments I've gotten. Thank you for this terrific design.
I love the Kate Bag. It has plenty of pockets on the outside for a water bottle, keys, phone and anything else you need quick assess too. I don't use it as a baby bag, but it would be perfect as one. Inside there are multiple compartments to keep your valuables separate and easy to grab. Only flaw is that if you load it up (which I love to do since it fits everything) is that the handles are very solid and they can dig into your shoulder and pinch a bit.
This is a great bag, I have it in more than one color! Not too big, hold all and has multiple ways to carry! Super chic!
I purchased this bag as a gift, and was wishing I had one of my own. I love the different pockets and versatility of the bag. Seems to be very durable bag, and I love the stitching.
I've been using the Kate for years as a diaper bag. I love that it's not obviously a diaper bag, that it has a separate pocket for the diaper supplies so that they don't get mixed up with all the other stuff you carry. Also, the outside bottle pockets are essential.
The only thing missing are two water bottle pockets on either side... or one water bottle and one umbrella/newspaper pocket(a little longer) Please try to add this and it will be the best bag in New York. Also you don't offer the Daphne to review but I was greatly disappointed It has no long strap... From now on I will go into your stores to purchase or at least view before buying online... Thank you... and please continue with the non leather material - it's important. (please keep my name confidential - thank you)
The best diaper bag! I've used it for 2 kids and countless trips and it's still a beautiful bag! It's perfect to hold bottles, extra change of clothes and your own essentials and can carry cross body and on shoulder making it incredibly versatile and very important light with all the stuff you have to haul around. Empty it out of kid stuff and it makes a chic work bag! Love it and will get another one!
I love the Kate. It is very roomy with tons of organization options without being overly large. I am a mother of two and a teacher. We commute into the city everyday and the Kate allows me to carry hair accessories, brush and comb ( for those mornings when my daughter's hair gets done on the train or bus) my breakfast yogurt, muffin and a contigo thermos full of coffee, a sweater, my Lexi wallet, snacks for later in the day, house keys, work keys, extra keys for my mom's apartment, my cell phone and reading glasses, as well as whatever school work I have brought home. Even after all that, there is usually room to put additional items I may have purchased along the way. The cross body options offers great versatility and no matter what I'm wearing, I always look very stylish with the Kate.
I use this bag for traveling. It is like a Mary Poppins bag, the available room is extraordinary. Ipad, shoes, sweater, sunglasses, book, Iphone, etc. It fits it all with room to spare. The cross body strap comes in really handy when going through airports, because your hands can be free to wheel your luggage. Definitely is a keeper.
This bag is hands down the best I've ever owned. I bought it seven years ago to use as a baby bag when my daughter was born. It still looks as good as the day I bought it, even though it has taken a mighty beating. It is gorgeous and stylish and goes with everything, and best of all, it makes me feel put together, even on the days that I am definitely not. I cannot recommend this bag highly enough.
I LOVE my Kate bag. I wanted a diaper bag that didn't look like a diaper bag. This was the perfect bag. It holds everything and then some. It also serves as a great overnight bag!
I bought this bag about 6 years ago and still looks great. I originally bought it because I just had a baby and loved the all room but now I travel every week for work and can not live without it .. I put my water bottle on the side and I can easily carry my laptop, sweater and everything in between. I receive compliments all the time and questions on where I got it! I'm thinking of buying another one!
This bag is perfect for travel. Amazing pockets to keep everything organized. You'll never fly without it again.
This is a beautiful bag with so much space and organization. I had a lot of trouble deciding between the Kate and the Belle. I have a two-year old and wanted a diaper bag/purse combo. I first purchased the Belle. However, the Belle tended to pull out from my body as I was loading the front pockets and not putting much inside the purse (it has one extra front pocket than the Kate). I really loved the baby bottle/water bottle pockets feature of the Kate and decided to purchase one. I have no regrets! It is a stunning bag that is so functional. Also, since it is not as tall as the Belle, it tends to hold its structure more instead of slumping over. I use the water bottle pockets all the time. I wish those were added to other styles. This bag would be great for anyone with a child or anyone needing to commute or have a travel bag.
I bought the Kate after spotting some really striking bags at the DC airport that I hadn't seen before. I noticed the detail and how well made they were. When I got home I did an internet search and found that these bags were made by MZ Wallace. I have gotten many compliments on my bag. The numerous pockets, sturdy, comfortable handles and vibrant color really fit well with my work attire.
This beautiful bag makes the perfect diaper bag, doubling as a travel bag whether your kids are small or grown. Love the navy!
Love this style nylon bag! Lots of pockets for organization and always fashionable. I will have to add more colors.
I got the Kate for a baby bag for my first child. So far it is has exceeded my expectations! I have other MZ bags, but the Kate adds an extra layer of pockets and space for organization necessary to keep you sane when traveling with a new baby. Plus, it is stylish and lightweight. I would recommend to any mom out there!
This is by far my favorite bag. I love love love all the pockets and the organization. I think the size is perfect. I don't use this as a diaper bag, I use it as a purse and it is definitely one of my favorites. I highly recomend this bag for anyone who enjoys larger purses and lots of pockets.
Love this Bag! It's perfect with everything. Lots of different compartments which is a bonus! The strap is great even with a big winter coat! It's perfect!
I love this bag! It's great to have a diaper bag that I can feel good about carrying.
This is the ultimate baby bag! I have had two children since receiving this bag as a gift, and it still looks like new! I can wipe it down when spills happen, and it keeps everything organized. In between having my first and second child, this bag also served as a great work bag. All around, one of the best purchases (gifts) ever!
This is the best handbag I've ever had. If you carry a lot of stuff, like to be really organized, and have easy access to everything then this is the bag for you. The big bonuses are the comfort of wearing this bag and the great sophisticated look of it...I can't find any other bag I like better! Please consider making a deep burgundy color and I'll be the first to order another one!
LOVE this bag! It was my first MZ style, and by far my favorite! I've gotten many compliments for this bag and have this model in a few colors. I love the multiple zippered exterior pockets, roomy interior, and the fact that the handles fit on your shoulder or you have the option of using the adjustable strap. I've seen many classic MZ styles get discontinued but hope this one stays around!
Love the Kate! I go from chic baby bag to work bag all in one; a spot for baby wipes and a separate spot for a laptop! And one of the best parts of all MZ bags, it is light for its size and durability.
This roomy bag was purchased for my family member and for use as a baby bag. It holds plenty of personal items as well as baby gear, is not heavy (even when pretty full) and the nylon can easily be wiped down. The large strap for carrying "hands free" is a MUST and I highly recommend this bag for baby and non-baby use. (I'd use it as a carry on for travel).
This bag has it all- multiple pockets, comfortable shoulder strap. It is very functional and can carry everything specially if you have a toddler. I have it rust color and can't wait to hopefully purchase it in black one of theses days.
This was given to me as a gift for a baby shower. It's gorgeous. Very well made and sturdy construction. I get so many compliments and don't feel like I'm carrying a diaper bag at all! I am new to MZ Wallace and have fallen in love with their line of bags!!!
I've been using my Black Bedford for two years as the Baby Bag and it's been wonderful to have so many pocket to put everything I need. It has carried diapers, wipes and an extra change of clothes. I used the small pocket to have a small stock of band aids, thermometer and ointment in case of emergency. I love it, love it and I feel classy with my bag. Great space to travel with it and the baby.
I have been looking for a nylon bag for a very long time and kept coming back to visit this site for their navy collection to return. This is a beautiful bag with lots of compartments which is something I look for in a bag!
i love the kate! it is roomy and holds a ton of everyday and not so everyday essentials. i love the shoulder strap. i need and use all the outside pockets. i can no longer buy any bags but mz wallace bags. the pockets have ruined any other bag for me!!!
I own a bunch of MZ bags and this one is my favorite! I'm a wedding planner so I carry a ton of stuff with me on a daily basis and this bag goes everywhere with me from fittings to wedding day. It holds all of my stuff and the best part is with all the compartments I know exactly where my things are! And it looks so chic which is a bonus!
For me, this is the essential everyday bag. I use it for work (it fits my computer and all essential so that I don't have to carry an extra bag) I use it for the weekends (it can hold the diaper bag and all the essentials for a mom of two kids) and everything in between. It's got great storage, and I love the pockets everywhere to keep things organized. the bag handles a lot of wear and tear and is still in great shape. I have the bag in teal, and love the unique color. I'm waiting for the next great color to re-purchase!
I am beyond impressed with this nylon bag. It is extremely functional and the perfect size for me (I gravitate toward the big bags). The outer pockets are wonderful, especially when commuting. Shoulder drop is just right, especially over a heavy coat. I started with the black and am sure I will end up with more colors.
I love this bag! Aside from the fabulous construction and the luxurious material, the room is tremendous. This is a great bag for everyday use. Dawn is one of my favorite colors and allows me to spice up my outfits with a splash of beautiful.
I love how big and spacious it is. The pockets are deep and can store multiple of things. The material is very liquid resistant and repels stains well. The shape is great and if folds easily in airplanes and general travel. I love my Bedford bag!
LOVE. LOVE. LOVE the Kate Bag!!!! A perfect daily work purse! I have the Kate Black Bedford that has served me well over the past few years. I was looking for a lighter weight, more practical alternative to a Chloe Heloise purse and found the Kate. The bag is lightweight and travels well - during daily commutes or during business travel. The handles are a perfect length for wrapping over luggage handles. The bottom of the bag is flat, so it conveniently sits on the top of luggage. The fabric has the right amount of sheen, class and (best of all) is durable and easy to clean. The side pockets are ideal for a water bottle during travel. The front pockets keep me organized - cell phone/work ID in larger front pocket, desk keys in small side pocket and house/car keys in top pocket. The large back pocket can hold magazines, boarding passes, etc. This Kate has lots of interior pockets for ids, metro cards, etc. I love this purse so much, I have convinced 2 others to purchase it. I am a MZ Wallace Kate "ambassador"!!
I have had this bag for five years and carry it almost everyday. I love it! So many pockets, so comfortable. Love the longer straps for winter with coats. I have nothing but positive things to say about it and I get complimented all the time!
Great bag and convenient. Best bag I own.
I love my Kate bag! It's the perfect everyday bag! I can fit a ton things--- toys for my kiddo, snacks, and moms things, too. There are tons of zippered pockets that are great for neatly separating the little things that would otherwise float around. I love this bag so much that I'm going to purchase it black, too!
This was a bit big for everyday use (I'm 5'-2"), but worked great for overnight trips and the gym. It will soon be enlisted as a diaper bag. The shoulder strap is very handy.
I use this as my work bag, I love it! I throw anything and everything in it and it's super comfy too.
I LOVE my Kate! It's the first MZW I purchased, three years ago and it's still in great shape! I use it as my laptop bag for daily work and travel. I'ts fantastic - all of the pockets are well sized and the interior has more than enough room for my 17" laptop and related peripherals. The outside pockets are great for my other 'stuff' so that I don't to carry a separate bag when I travel. I've also purchased three of them for expecting mom's as baby bags -they LOVE them too!
I love my Kate bag. A friend of mine has one and she uses it as a diaper bag. I saw it and fell in love with it. It is stylish and super convenient with so many pockets. It's great that I can use it now as a diaper bag and the possibilities are endless for future use. Love it so much that I bought two at the same time to save for later use!!!
I purchased this bag as a travel bag, it was definitely an upgrade from my bookbag! The Kate arrived packaged beautifully & when I opened it I was blown away. There is so much space in this bag along with multiple compartments, perfect for traveling & hauling things around on long international flights. The option of wearing this as a crossbody or over my shoulder is perfect. I have received so many compliments & have even had people stop me in airports asking where to purchase. The Kate has been perfect on airplanes I can fit it right under my seat, which I actually use the changing pad that it came with & sit my bag on top of that instead of nasty plane floors. Super easy access to everything I need without ever having to heave it into an overhead compartment. Best bag I've ever purchased, ladies invest in this gem!
I love this bag it is the perfect size and also like the shoulder strap that comes with it. I have the Bea bag which I love but wish I could have it with shoulder strap!@ This bag has plenty of space and pockets can't wait for Fall to start using it
The Kate bag has become the everyday diaper bag in our house. My wife loves carrying it and I love having all those pockets to fill with stuff for us and our little one. Well done MZ!
Absolutely love this bag. It has pockets galore, a great appearance and fits my 13 inch MAC Air perfectly. Since it is pricey, I had to consider whether function and durability made it worth a dent in my budget. It definitely is worth it! I use it for travel but think it will work anytime I need to carry a bag with organized storage.
I love, love, love this bag (along with Paige and Metro). I use it when traveling. It has so many compartments I can go through my day easily from the time I leave in the morning to dinner time. I use it dressed up or just casually. The black never goes out of season.
very easy bag for whatever you are planning to do. lots of pockets and space!
I love this bag. I own it in two colors, a dark green and a burgundy. While its original purpose is a diaper bag and it is great for traveling, I find this shape is my every day go-to bag for its organizational qualities. Not only does it have 4 zippered outside pockets but it has 2 elastic side pockets which are great for sunglasses and an umbrella or a water bottle. In addition, it has more interior pockets so I can keep more small items neatly tucked away.
My first bag and still my favorite. A must carry whenever I'm heading to a plane-- room for everything-- pashmina, flip flops, iPad, Kindle, etc and a change of clothes. I usually put my jewelry in a Penny bag and slip that inside the Kate.
I love this handbag! Very roomy and has plenty of pockets inside and out. I receive a lot of compliments when I use this. Great purse!
I love the shape and amount of pockets on this bag while looking stylish. I wish the diaper pad tied easier. Love the contrast Colour it makes it easier to find things. It's spacious and super easy to find what you need without having to take everything out of the bag. Love it!!
This bag has spoiled me for all others! I'm one of those who totes around a lot of "stuff" every day. This bag has a place for everything, and all the pockets and zip pouches keep me super organized. I have it in two colors now, and there may be another in my future.
I've owned many handbags in my lifetime, but this is by far my most favorite bag. It's great for kids, travel, work, weekends, or even running quick errands. For it's size, it's very lightweight and has so many compartments. The material is easily cleaned. I'm constantly getting compliments on it. I absolutely love this bag!!!
This is the perfect bag for traveling. All of the pockets keep me organized and I can put the things that I will need (iPad, headphones, chargers, etc.) in the outside pockets and not have to rummage through the bag to find them. Also I can keep my purse (yes, my Penny bag) inside along with a sweater or shawl and a magazine. With the market purse, I can keep things that I don't need all the time handy (pens, lipstick) and still have it readily available when I need it. I'm only 5'1" and the bag is NOT too big for me!
Love this bag! Purchased this to use as a diaper bag and it is perfect. Room for everything you need, not too big, comfortable to carry and great looking. I really didn't want a cheesy 'Mom bag' and was so happy to find this. Highly recommend this bag!
I purchased this bag about 6 months or so ago. I really wanted the Jane bag but looked into this one because it was on sale and it was in the same color that I was looking for. The salesperson at the upper east side store where I purchased it did not mention that it was a "baby bag" and just told me how great it was. When I got home and started to put my belongings in it, I noticed it came with a changing pad and it was then that I realized it was meant to be a baby bag. I was disappointed because had I been told that then I wouldn't have purchased it and I would had just waited especially since the Jane bag went on sale shortly after in the same color. So I ended up giving it away to a friend who had an infant baby. I love MZ Wallace bags because they don't get stained and they can be used in all types of weather but I certainly didn't want to carry around a baby bag looking handbag with no baby. So if the salespeople can be more specific on the bags that would be great. Unfortunately it was final sale so I got stuck with the bag and never used it.
I love the look, shape and functional pockets in this bag. However, I have used it for the past 3 years as a diaper bag, and materials have not held up as I would have hoped. The shoulder strap hook attachment pulled out within the first month; I had it professionally repaired, and it broke again. The inner lining has ripped in a couple places as well (and I have never carried anything sharp or that may snag it). I still love the bag, and will probably buy another MZ Wallace bag, but my expectations for durability are lowered.
I love Kate so much I currently own three. After trying numerous diaper bags Kate has become my go to bag when I'm out with my son. All the pockets help me keep my contents organized and easily accessible. Dawn appears to be a beautiful color I would consider trying in the future.
The PERFECT Work Bag! I have searched high and low for a bag that will hold all of my work essentials, plus my purse contents. This is the ONLY bag that fits the bill! Thank you MZ Wallace! First, it is a gorgeous bag. I love the styling and the little details that make it such a standout. But it's the functionality that won me over. I carry a 15" laptop, a TON of papers, file folders, business cards, lunch, ipad, day planner, and brochures. They all fit easily within the main compartment. My purse contents securely fit into the zippered outer compartments: Wallet, make-up bag, sunglasses, keys, large cell phone, and more. And I always bring 2 bottles of water, which fit into the outer two bottle holders. This may have been originally designed as a diaper bag, but it is the best work bag! It is sturdy, without being heavy. I am now an MZ Wallace fan for life.
LOVE THIS BAG!! I can't tell you how many compliments I receive on carrying this bag and its perfect for commuting/travel. With all the pockets in it, I'm able to fit a book, extra pairs of shoes, toiletries, etc. It becomes a carry on in itself when I travel for work. Plus the fact that the material is so durable, who can compare!??! Please keep this design. It's my favorite!
This is the Perfect Diaper Bag for a mom with two kids. I also use it when traveling for the weekend. It easily holds two ipads, change of clothes, diapers, games, snacks and water bottles. Tons of pockets for easy organization. I love having two handle options for cross body or shoulder.
LOVE-LOVE-LOVE this bag! I am already on my second one, having abused my first Navy Bedford Kate for over 3 years. I am horribly abusive to my bags; dropping it on the floors of city buses, washing it in a washing machine, and even hiking with it (in style). It has handled everything I have thrown at it with style and held up incredibly well. This bag was designed with LOVE, and it shows.
Kate is a great bag for a girl with lots of stuff! All the pockets help me organize and I love the option of the cross body strap!
Kate is NOT just for someone with small children, Kate does not scream diaper bag, Kate is as multifunctional as any woman, does not matter if she is a mom, a working gal, an adventurer or someone who needs to carry lots of stuff for whatever she is involved in. I travel, I work with animals, I shop and schlep with the best of them. Kate can be loaded up easily, organized to function as you need it. office one day/ travel another/ dog training on the weekend. Who cares what you throw at her or into her. She can handle it all! When I think of Kate, I imagine the real Kate, Katherine Hepburn, a true individual, hauling her stuff everywhere she went. Kate is for EVERY woman, and does her job well and with style and class. guess that is why I own a few colors.
Kate was my first MZW bag and it's the one I turn to all the time. It's my work bag, diaper bag, and just recently, travel bag. It always looks so classy with pockets galore. I drool every time new colors are released. Thanks MZW!!
The Kate is the first bag that drew me into MZW and started the obsession. It's a fantastic work bag and I get tons of compliments on it, and now I have 3 (black, vermillion, stone.) It fits everything I need as a case manager working in the human services - files, 15 in laptop, Surface pro tablet, two phones, kindle, business cards, pens, etc. and the workmanship is top notch and the bag wears like iron. Plus, the MZW brand/logo-ing is perfectly understated for my line of work. I would love to see Kate come out in more fun bright colors (greens, purples, etc.), and also fun contrasting interior colors!!
I use this bag almost exclusively (and when I change, it's to another MZW bag). I DO use it for a diaper bag, but it's so much more. I don't switch it out when I don't tote the kiddos stuff with me. And I use the sutton pouches for organization. It hangs right, it's easy to access and it's comfy. I own 2, and will probably buy a 3rd.
This is the most versatile bag I own. I use it as a purse, a weekender, work bag, and flight carry-on. Best. Bag. Ever.
I absolutely LOVE the Kate bag! I currently have it in 4 different colors, but have had it in up to 6 at a time. This bag is so awesome! I love a bag with great pockets and this is definitely it. Between all of the exterior and interior pockets, it is the perfect bag for me. I use mine as large handbags, travel/ carry-on bags, diaper bags, gym bags, work bags, and everything in between. The strap drop is excellent and the side bottle pockets are very convenient. I get compliments and questions on this bag in any of the colors that I carry so often. My favorite so far has to be my Navy with saffiano leather trim and the gorgeous berry lining! Please bring back the colorful linings and no more warm cafe! The saffiano and pebbled leather trims wear the best out of all the MZW bags that I have. Would love to see more colors released with either of those two leather textures. Happy to hear that Vermillion has saffiano leather, though it's not a color that I would wear. I missed out back when Kate was released in Peacock and Plum, so I would love to see a purple colored Kate or another turquoise/ teal one (with a pretty, vivid lining color, maybe even bring back the wonderful diamond logo lining). It would also be really pretty in a Black Moto release with silver hardware, saffiano or pebbled leather trim, and maybe the flat shoulder straps that are on the retired Alice or Francis Tote (love those straps on my bags, incredibly comfortable). I've heard several ladies say that they'd love to see one released with the extra horizontal zippered pocket above the front 3 pockets and back pocket (like on the Frankie or Belle or Francis Tote), and I'd have to agree. That would only make the bag I love even more amazing!!
I have two Kates and even though my kids are older (5 & 7 years old) it is the bag I use the most during the week with them. I originally bought it because I had to have a bag with a cross body, but I don't even use the cross body because the straps are comfortable to use. Having the outside drink pockets, plus the way the bag sits and doesn't get floppy makes it so easy to use.
I love the Kate so much that I own five, yes five, of them. And I will continue to buy more. Why? Because this bag is amazing! The handle drop is perfect, the size is perfect, the organization is perfect, and it so stylish. I have two toddlers and this bag perfectly carries their stuff and mine. The outside pockets are so appreciated when I need to use one hand to access stuff such as keys while carrying a squirmy toddler. Most diaper bags look and feel cheap. The Kate is luxurious and does not look like a diaper bag, so I will gladly continue to carry this style as my children get older.
Kate has turned into the greatest bag ever for me and my child is 4. Didn't use it as a diaper bag initially, but have fallen hard for it now that I have less to carry and use it as a handbag. Would love to see this in Black Moto with red lining as well. Also would love a true purple color with silver hardware in this bag and other styles and small items as well!
I have coveted this bag for a long time - but I only buy silver hardware products, I don't like gold anything - so even though I held out for the bag in black moto w/silver hardware I decided to break away from black and decided on the Smoke gray because it was the on-line weekly Friday special at a great price (in case I was disappointed). But I love it am completely glad I made the decision to buy - and at a fantastic price... A win-win for me all the way. I love "big" bags with lots of pockets and this bag does not disappoint (its not really as large as I like, but it is large) & MZ Wallace never disappoints.
I bought this back in fall 2010 as a diaper bag. This is the best bag! It is durable, you can crush it and shove it on the bottom of your stroller, under the seat on the airplane or carry around on your shoulder and it always looks great. Wipes easy if any food/milk spills on it. Lots of great pockets too. I highly recommend MZ Wallace-quality and style can not be beat!
I got my first Kate a year ago and have used it for about 8 of the 12 months. I have 4 other MZ bags and love them all, but Kate has the Pockets!! I love the interior pockets so much, it is an organizer's dream especially when I have a bit of trouble with organizing. I have just purchased the Belle and am looking forward to seeing the difference. My real reservation is that the Belle does not have the Pockets in the inside like the Kate. I will be purchasing the Kate again and look forward to the new additions of the Kate in the coming year. MZ Wallace is never a disappointment it is such quality and fun. Keep them coming.
I've been looking for this bag for many, many years. I purchased it for traveling, but it has become my everyday bag. It's stylish, lightweight, and amazingly strong. It can hold a lot (laptop, notebooks, gym clothes, lunch, plus purse items) and still sits comfortably on my shoulder and doesn't cause back pain. I have carried it through rainstorms and snowstorms and the contents stay dry, and the bag still looks brand new. I have a closet full of other bags that I no longer carry, because this bag can handles everything and look fantastic doing it. Thanks, MZ Wallace, for finally giving me bag nirvana!
Terrific bag, great for work
I bought my black bedford Kate in 2009 when I got hired on by an airline. I wanted a purse to keep me organized but it had to be large enough to carry the important things I don't like to check. I travel extensively and have had moments in airport restrooms where I hang my Kate on the back of a stall door and cringe, hoping the handles won't break under the weight of the massive amount that I can pack in that bag. After 5 years, there is not a crack in the leather, not a loose thread, not a single rip or tear. It cleans up easily and has kept me organized for years. The only issue I've ever had is with one of the outer pocket zippers, but I've learned how to make it work. I'm sure I could have exchanged it, but I fell in love immediately, and couldn't send it back! I can't say enough good things about the Kate and the quality of it's craftsmanship.
Just received my Kate after admiring my co-workers Kate and another co-worker's Jane. I could not be more pleased with the quality of this bag. Well worth the wait. I commute to the city during the week and will no longer need a second bag besides my purse-my back thanks you. The look is so feminine and sleek. When not commuting, this is my go to bag - does not look overstuffed or too big. Just a beautiful bag that every girl should own.
I've finally found the bag of my dreams! This bag is truly The Bag! It isnt my only MZ Wallace bag, but it indeed my favorite. Will definately be getting another colour in this.
The Kate is THE BAG. The ONLY bag I'll ever need. Seriously. I've always loved purses and traditionally have steered away from bags with lots of compartments, but now that I have the Kate, I can't seem to ever carry any of my other purses because the Kate keeps me so organized. My MZW addiction started with the Jane (black) and now that I have the Kate (mushroom) I'm dying for the Kate to come out in a Kelly Green! I see it referred to as an overnight bag or diaper bag, but I carry the Kate as my everyday purse. I get tons of compliments and the mushroom color just goes with everything!
Love this bag! It is versatle and stylish. I use it for travel and it comforably holds my laptop, ipad, wallet and other essential items. It's lightweight and I love the Clover color. It's a must-have for travelers!
I bought the Kate when I was looking for a non-traditional diaper bag. The nylon is great with kids since it wipes clean. In addition to a diaper bag - I found this to be the BEST travel bag. When traveling for work, it easily fits my laptop, file folders, headphones and anything else I need on the plane. I've had countless people ask me where I got this bag. What more can you ask for?
I bought this bag in advance of a move to Berlin, Germany because I wanted a bag to double as a city on-the-go bag and a diaper bag. This thing is not only beautiful but so functional! It will be perfect for traveling and every day running around. There are more pockets than I know what to do with as well as what I think is a nylon changing pad (which will probably show how not-in-tthe-loop of fashion I am). If it is something else, I apologize profusely and would love to know what it is. Bottom line: love love love this bag!
I received this handbag today and I am absolutely thrilled with it. This beautiful cranberry color is AWESOME! I first saw MZ Wallace in Berkeley, CA. and I knew I need to have one. My heart was set on getting it in black and I think I still may, but when this cranberry one went on sale, I had to have it. Very classy design and appearance, lots of room too. I am planning on using it for travel. I can carry my personal items and my Nikon in this baby with ease! Thank-you MZ Wallace.....You Rock! PS. Packaging was done well and shipping to Hawaii....Super Fast!
Amazing bag. I ordered as a diaper bag- I'm only 6 months along, and couldn't wait to use it. I have been toting it around as my everyday purse! It's got a pocket for everything, slides over the shoulders perfectly, stays put, and has an ever so handy messenger strap that's adjustable. This may be the most perfect bag I've ever owned. Excellent quality. To top it off, the color is fabulous- just the right shade of discreet purple. I'm not sure how I'll feel when I have to actually fill it with baby items! Perhaps I'll need one in another color? :) Buy this bag immediately!
I have this bag and I love it! Of course - it is not my only MZ Wallace bag - but they are all my favs!
Just got the Chocolate Bedford Kate bag for my birthday. Love it, thought it might be too big for everyday but I love having room for my things. Everyday I have worn it, I receive compliments on the color and the outside pockets. Side pocket is great for water bottle.
this style bag has changed my life...it has organized me with style...im not stressed leaving the house! cant wait to get this color!!!
This bag was a splurge for me but I saw it in Travel and Leisure magazine and I had to have it. I was debating about nylon at this price but I do a lot of traveling and it has been doubling as everyday bag / carry on. I'm definitely not sorry I spent the money.
the kate bag has changed my life...im much more calm as i leave the house everyday...knowing i have everything i need and i can get to it quickly! no more putting my bag down on the ground and rummaging thru for my phone, keys, credit crad, lip gloss...etc! thank you for this bag!
