There are some bags out there that I see and instantly know I must have. The Coach Kristin Leather Hobo is one of these bags. Before I go much further, you all have probably picked up on how Amanda and I want to try and cover more Coach bags. Frankly, these bags are great and there is no reason not to cover them more. This all started back with Amanda’s review of the Coach Kristin Large Hobo which so many of you fell in love with. So, when I came across the larger bag in the Kristin line, I knew I had to cover it as well.

First of all, the version I first laid my eyes on was blue. The bag also comes in black, white and taupe, but I have a soft spot in my heart for blue bags. And this isn’t just any kind of blue, it is a dark, but not *too* dark blue. (Great description, huh?)

Second of all, the leather, like almost all Coach leather is amazing. You can notice this in the image here and if you happen to walk into a Coach store, you better believe that when you touch the leather, it will live up to all of your wildest dreams.

Finally, it’s just basically the complete package. You’ve got a great color, durable and supple leather as well as just the right hint of fashionable elements all rolled into one. I know I wouldn’t actually use the shoulder strap (10″ drop) but I would keep it attached and let it hang off the rest of the bag for added movement. Thank goodness for options! Buy through Nordstrom for only $298.

    Why are the all the Coach bag links to Nordstrom and not to Coach’s official website?

    • Amanda Mull

      Because that’s where we got the pictures from. Nordstrom is one of the usual places that we look for bags – it’s simpler for us to go through large department store websites than to search each brand’s site individually. We do this with almost every brand, except for those that don’t sell their bags on third party sites.

    I love it! Love Coach bags in general but this one is extra special. I would use the shoulder strap.

  • FashionIsMyHobby

    I love both the front pocket and the gorgeous saturated blue of the smooth leather. I never like the dark navy colors where you can’t tell if it’s blue or black.

    Love Coach handbags. They are classic and go with everything. Their Poppy line is so vibrant and colorful.
    This is a pretty bag, but I would definitely have to get the white one and wear it year round.

    This is a beautiful shade of blue! Coach hasn’t lost its touch!

  • Susan

    Oh, this is beautiful bag…love that shade of blue.

    I really don’t understand why people hate Coach. They clearly have their flops, but they prove themselves over and over with great bags like this one. You can see how great the leather is in the picture. Just looking at it, I know exactly what it will feel like. And the price point is great.

    This color is so lovely and I’ve been a fan of the Kristin line for some time now. I just don’t know whether I prefer the regular sized or large hobo.

  • nola

    Love the blue.

    Hate the pocket on the front.

  • Katharin

    Just picked up the Large Kristin in Taupe; love it!!! The lining is a lovely peach color and the pockets are large and deep. This is a take with you any ware bag that looks great with jeans or something a little dressier, it sits very comfortably on your shoulder or draped over your arm. The front pocket is great for my cell phone and or glasses; very handy. The interior of the bag is very roomy I took it shopping with me today and stuffed it with some of my purchases and the bag still felt comfortable and hung beautifully. I’m not really a Taupe person but I loved the combination of the silver hardware with this shade of Taupe and wanted something other than black for the summer that I could ware into the fall. I would defiantly recommend this bag.

    I also have the Kristen in the patent taupe. I love it, it’s so soft and pretty. I moved away from Coach for a few years, but I have to say, I am loving this line again. I recently bought the Madison gathered Sofia leather bag in the black. I love it, such a beautiful bag. Very well made and looks so expensive.
