    Absolutely perfect

    I love my new backpack so much. This is my first Gunas purchase and I am super impressed with the quality!

    Hi Natalie! Thank you so much for your kind words! We are so happy to hear that you love your new bag.
    Nice Bag But Not As Pictured

    This is a lovely bag and very comfortable to carry. However, the bag was significantly different than it looks in the picture. The color of the straps are navy blue (rather than the camel color pictured) and not the same color navy as the blue of the bag which is a much deeper color. The logo is different as well. The Gunas symbol is a raised gold charm however, the word Gunas is embossed and is the same color of the camel in the bag. Finally, the interior pockets are not at all what is pictured on line. There is only one zipper compartment on the inside as opposed to a zipper compartment and two interior pockets. The interior of the bag is identical to the interior of the quilted Cougar. While I am happy with the bag now, I was initially quite disappointed with the differences, especially the color of the straps and the interior pocket configuration.

    Looks great

    I haven't given it to my wife yet, but it looks great!

    Perfect everyday backpack

    I love the sleek design and it's roomier than you think. It fits my 13 inch macbook in a sleeve, a small water bottle, wallet, keys and phone. The front zipper pocket is a little small and only good for chapstick or keys. The straps are comfortable and adjustable. I'd recommend this to anyone wanting an alternative to carrying a tote!

    Don’t like the changes from a few yrs ago

    I bought the same bag a few years ago and hoped to get the identical bag. I like the first bag better. This one is a bit too white - the last one was a little more of a cream color. Also the first bag had a silkier fabric inside and this has more of a coarse cotton. Also the first one had more little pockets inside. so I probably wouldn’t buy it a third time. I see you’re trying to save money but I would have preferred the same bag for a little higher price.

    Hi Kristine, Being a small brand we are limited by the kind of fabrics available at the time of production since we don't buy in bulk. The Fabric for the lining was switched due to customer feedback as people wanted a lighter lining to be able to see inside. The old lining was also not as sturdy and was easy to rip. We are not trying to save money by any means. The new materials are in fact more expensive and we haven't changed or increased the retail price of the bag. Thank you

    The most adorable bag!

    I wanted this bag forever and it is the cutest thing in the world. very high quality material, and the bow is perfection. The reason I'm not giving it five stars is because it's quite difficult to snap both front snaps at once, which is frustrating if you're in a hurry. Also the bag will not stand up straight, it mostly will lay on its side, so when I'm at the checkout I have the lay the entire purse down, taking up most of the counter, which is a pain.

    Hi Kate, Thank you for your feedback. Did you purchase the classic version or the Premium version? The Premium is stiffer and snaps easily and can stand on its own. We are phasing out the classic version and have added these upgrades in the premium one.
    My favourite bag

    I absolutely love this bag (I have the blue one) and I use it everyday. Fantastic quality, heaps of pockets, love the charm on the front zip too. Love that Gunas are cruelty free and ship internationally.

    So cute!

    I really like this bag. My only complaint is that I wish it were bigger and had silver hardware instead of gold. But the bow is the mail reason I bought it.

    Dear Marissa, Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. The size is listed on our site and the Cottontail is designed to be a spacious yet compact cross-body/Shoulder bag. Sorry you thought it was bigger. We'll consider making a bigger version in the future with silver hardware. Thank you


    Love the grey!

    I have this bag in black, so already loved it -- well made and the perfect size for my everyday use. Have been wanting it in grey for a while and finally purchased it. The color was a little darker than what it looked like on my screen, and darker than my light grey Cher tote-- but, I just LOVE this color! It's a marvelous neutral color for all seasons. Love Gunas!
