Criteria Used in Choosing the Best Kavu Bags

Size and Capacity

The size of your Kavu bag is going to determine what you can put into the bag and how much the bag will hold. This is a great area to start because if you end up purchasing a bag that is too small for your needs, then you will not be able to use the bag the way that you may have intended to use it. On the other hand, while it can be helpful to get a bag that is slightly larger than what you need, you do not want to end up with a bag that is way too large either.

When you are determining what size you need, you need to think about what sort of items that you plan on putting into the bag. If you only plan on carrying a few items such as a wallet and a water bottle, then you are not going to need a large bag. On the other hand, if you plan on putting your laptop into your Kavu bag, then you are going to need a bag that is much larger. While you are shopping for a bag, you should try and get the size right because you do not want to end up with a bag that is too small for your items. If you aren’t sure, then you should go for a bag that is slightly larger because this will give you some buffer room. You should make sure that the bag isn’t overly large for your needs as this will become bulky and may end up making the bag into a nuisance.

While you are looking at the size of the bag, you are also going to want to consider the overall capacity of the bag in terms of weight. Regardless of the size, your Kavu bag needs to be strong enough to hold the items that you are planning on putting in the bag. If the bag is not strong enough for your needs, then it will break and ruin the bag. Even if the bag doesn’t break completely, too much weight may stretch out the bag and weaken it. For these reasons, you will need to consider the carrying capacity of the bag as well.

Larger bags will need to be made from stronger and thicker materials than smaller bags. Thicker material will naturally lend strength to the bag which will increase its carrying capacity. You will also want to look at the kind of strap that is used to carry the bag as well. The larger the bag is, the thicker the carrying strap should be so that it doesn’t dig into your hands or your shoulders. All of the straps should be sewn firmly to the bag so that it doesn’t rip or tear at the straps. If you have any reason to believe that the bag isn’t built solidly enough for your needs, you will need to look at a stronger and more durable model of Kavu bags to prevent issues due to weight.

Storage compartments are related to size and capacity and are also a factor. When you are shopping for Kavu bags, you will want to pay attention to how your items will be organized. Some bags only offer one compartment while other bags have multiple compartments and even pockets. It is best that you look for a Kavu bag that is suitable in size, capacity, and storage so that you get a bag that is proper for your needs. As you add more items to your bag, you will want to have a means to access your items quickly. Storage compartments will also help protect items that can be delicate or fragile as well which is another reason why you will want to think about how items are stored in the bag.

When the Kavu bag has pockets, you should make sure that you can close the pockets securely so that nothing falls out of the pockets. This is critical on exterior pockets because if an item falls out of the pocket then it could end up getting lost. Interior pockets should also close secure as well but you are less likely to lose an item when it falls out of an interior pocket.

The better job you do of thinking about your needs, the more likely are to end up with a Kavu bag that works best for you. Kavu bags are sold in a wide variety of sizes so you will have more than enough choice when you are picking out bags. For this reason, it is important that you know what you need from the bag so that you can get a model of Kavu bag that is properly matched to your unique needs. This will help improve your satisfaction with the Kavu bag that you end up purchasing.

 

Features

Since there are plenty of different Kavu bags that are available to purchase, it can become confusing when you are deciding which bag you should end up purchasing. One of the ways Kavu helps you tell bags apart is by adding features to certain models of bags which will help you differentiate between the different bags. While there are more features than what can be mentioned here, it helps to know about the more common ones so that you know what you are looking at when you are shopping for a Kavu bag. This will help you make a more informed choice about which Kavu bag is best for your needs while you are shopping.

Some of the larger Kavu bags have padded back areas which help make the bag more comfortable to wear on your back. When a bag is worn on your back, you may feel the items that are in the bag poking against your back. This can lead to discomfort as well as back pain which is something that you are going to want to avoid. When the bag has a padded back panel, there is a layer of cushioning between you and your items that are in the bag which improves the comfort and makes it easier for you to carry a heavy load in the bag.

Many Kavu bags are singled strapped and are designed to be worn cross body. The cross body design is popular with many people who are hiking, camping, or mountain climbing because it provides you with a way to keep both of your hands-free while you are wearing the bag. The cross body bags can be worn on your side, front, or your back so they are highly versatile in their uses. The versatility is another reason why the cross body bags are popular with many consumers.

Some bags are even expandable which allows them to be folded up into smaller bags when you are only carrying a few small items and then you can expand the bag when you need more room. For example, you may choose to use the bag as a purse or a small knapsack most of the time when you are running errands but then you can unzip or unfold it to make it larger to pack more items. You should keep in mind to check the weight capacity of such bags so that you do not overload them, but expandability is a great feature to have when you are not sure what size Kavu bag you are going to need when you purchase one.

Zippered pockets are another feature that is found in almost every kind of Kavu bag because it provides you with plenty of organization. For example, when you are using a Kavu bag as a purse, you may decide to put your phone in one pocket, your id and credit cards in another pocket, and your money in a third pocket. The pockets are located on both the interior and the exterior of the bags so you will need to decide what sort of pocket configuration is best suited to your needs when you are picking out a Kavu bag. Having zippers on the pockets is important for security reasons since it is less likely that your items will slip or fall out of the bag when the pockets have been closed with a zipper.

There are also Kavu bags that come with mesh water bottle holders on the outside of the bag. A water bottle holder is a great place for you to store a drink or a beverage on the bag without worrying about the items inside of the bag getting wet should the container leak. This feature is popular with people who are active so many runners, joggers, hikers, and other people tent to look for bags that have water bottle holders. Of course, you may be someone who likes to keep a beverage on you at all times in which case a water bottle holder is a great feature for you to have with your Kavu bag.

These are only a few of many popular features that are found on Kavu bags. You should keep in mind that when you are shopping for a Kavu bag that you are unlikely to find a bag with every possible feature. Instead, you should think about your needs as a shopper and then get a bag that has the proper features for your needs. For example, somebody who plans on using a Kavu bag for camping will need a bag that is very different from someone who plans on using their bag as a purse. The features will help you tell the different bags apart and will likely indicate what sort of consumer should purchase the bag. The better job you do learning about the different features and what they are used for, the better you will be able to match a bag to your needs.

 

Material

Kavu bags are made from different materials so when you are picking out a Kavu bag, you should take the time to understand the different fabrics that are used to construct the bag. This will tell you a lot about the bag and what sort of things it can be used for. For example, some bags are water resistant and are great for when you are going to be walking outdoors in a light rain while other bags are not water resistant at all and will leak water if they get wet. The material used to make a Kavu bag will also help determine how strong the bag is and how much it will weight. Finally, the material plays a role in how the bag looks and feels.

There are just a few reasons why you will want to learn about the different materials used to make Kavu bags. Kavu bags are either made from a cotton canvas or a polyester material. Both materials have their benefits as well as their drawbacks which is why it is important that you know about the different materials in order to make a good choice about what sort of bag you want. You will also want to pay attention to how thick the material is as well because thicker bags will be able to hold more weight than thinner bags.

Polyester is the most popular material used to make Kavu bags. Polyester is an artificial fabric that is weaved together into a cloth. It has a look and feels that is similar to cotton but has a few benefits over cotton. One of the polyester’s main benefits is that it is easy to mass produce which makes the bag cheaper to make. This is one of the main reasons why many apparel products use polyester or polyester and cotton blend fabrics. Bags that are made from polyester generally cost less to make than a bag that is made completely from cotton which generally results in a lower price tag on the bag itself.

Since polyester is a synthetic material, it will not retain moisture. That means that many bags that are made from polyester will have a degree of water resistance since the fabric will not absorb any moisture. You can always check if a Kavu bag is water resistant by putting a little bit of water on the bag and checking if the water beads off of the bag. If the water soaks into the bag, then it isn’t water resistant but if it stays on top of the material and rolls off of the bag, then your items inside of the bag will be better protected from weather conditions such as rain.

Kavu bags that are made from polyester are also easier to clean than bags that are made from cotton. This is because in most cases, you can wipe the bag off with a damp cloth if the bag gets dirty. However, you can still wash bags that are made from polyester as long as you follow the cleaning instructions that are provided by the manufacturer. This can help make the bag last longer and look newer than a bag that is made from cotton canvas.

However, there are benefits to having a cotton canvas bag. For example, cotton is easy to dye so that means that the colors on your Kavu bag will last for a longer time than what they might on a polyester bag. Cotton is also completely organic and it isn’t made with potentially harmful chemicals either. Since cotton is a natural product, it is biodegradable so you won’t need to worry about impacts on the environment when you decide to throw the bag away. Fabrics that are made of cotton are also soft and strong at the same time. This means that your Kavu bag won’t feel scratchy against your skin and it also won’t scratch sensitive items that you happen to put into the bag either. Another benefit to cotton is that it washes well so if your bag happens to get dirty, you should be able to easily clean it according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

When you are picking out a Kavu bag, you will want to pay special attention to the material that is used to make the bag. Almost all Kavu bags are either made of cotton canvas or polyester. When you are looking for durability, you should go with polyester because it is likely to last for a longer period of time than cotton would. On the other hand, if you are looking for a bag that has a more natural look and is soft to touch, then you should pick cotton. Each kind of material has its own strengths and weaknesses and it will affect how the bag looks and performs so you should evaluate each bag and pick one that is right for your needs.

 

Intended Use

Since Kavu makes a lot of different kinds and styles of bags, it can be hard to pick out which bag will be best for your needs. One of the strategies that you can use is to think about what you plan on doing with the bag. Your intended usage is ultimately what is going to decide what sort of need that the bag will have to address so this is a great way to pick out the bag that is perfect for you. Since each bag is different, there is a good chance that the company will have the perfect kind of Kavu bag that perfectly address your needs as a consumer.

Some people require a large bag that can hold a lot of different items. Many athletes, students, backpackers, travelers, and hikers need to won large bags that can hold plenty of gear. If you fall into this category, then you should consider getting a rucksack Kavu bag. Rucksacks are large and usually have multiple compartments so that you store all of the gear that you may need. For example, an athlete may want to store clothes in one compartment of the rucksack, shower gear in another compartment, and then tie shoes to the molle webbing on the exterior surface of the bag.

Likewise, a student may want to look for a rucksack that has a dedicated laptop sleeve so that they can store a laptop and a tablet in one compartment and then their other school suppliers in other areas of the bag. People who need to carry large and heavy loads on will also appreciate the fact that rucksack style bags have two shoulder straps that allow you to wear them as a backpack. Since Kavu bags are known for their durability, this will help make sure that you end up with a bag that is able to handle a lot of gear at a single time which makes larger models of Kavu bags ideal for such purposes.

Kavu makes a variety of satchel style bags as well. These bags are smaller in their size but in many cases are expandable so that you can pick between two sizes. They have a thick and sometimes padded shoulder strap so that you can wear it over your shoulder and across your side, back, or even in the front of your body. These bags are great for people who are on the go. For example, when you plan on going to spend a day at the beach, you can put items such as sunblock, snacks, and other small items into the satchel bag. One of the main benefits of owning this style of Kavu bag is that you have both of your hands-free so that you can carry other items with you. This is part of the reason why these bags are marketed to hikers, backpacks, rock climbers or other people who need to have both of their hands available.

The satchel bag can also be worn as a purse as well since many of them are expandable between two different sizes. You can fold the bag into its smaller form and use it as a handbag because these bags do not have a lot of bulk. Their strength, durability, and stylish looks make them a great option for a larger purse or handbag. Of course, if you are looking for a dedicated purse or handbag, then Kavu has plenty of choice for you in this area as well. For example, they have a mini bag that is large enough to carry essential items such as a wallet, cell phone, and a few other items that are commonly kept in a purse.

You will also see other Kavu bag models that are designed specifically to be used as a small bag or as a purse. These bags have a traditional purse or women’s handbag shape to them and have a thin shoulder strap so that you can carry it on your shoulder. The bags themselves come with more than enough pockets and organizers so that you can easily find your personal items such as your credit card or driver’s license when you need it. In other words, if you are a handbag shopper, then Kavu has plenty of bag models and designs for you to pick from.

Since Kavu makes so many different kinds of bags, you should take a little bit of time to think about how you are planning on using the bag. This will help narrow down the selection of Kavu bags and will help direct you to the proper bag for your needs. The better that you understand what you need from your handbag, the better you will be able to match the bag to your needs. This will improve your overall satisfaction with your Kavu bag and turn it into a bag that you love.

 

Quality

Although Kavu bags are known for their durability and quality, you should still take the time to look at some known trouble areas to make sure that you are getting a well-made bag. This is because even the best quality control and assurance practices can still allow a bad product to get shipped to the store. Should you end up with a defective product, you will want to know about it right away so that you can exchange the item. The other reason why you want to look for quality is to make sure that you have gotten a genuine Kavu bag. Regrettably, there are plenty of online businesses that sell counterfeit goods so you should be on your guard so that you are actually getting the product that you paid for.

When you are looking at a Kavu bag, you will want to inspect the bag and look for areas that are commonly known to have problems. One of the first things that you should check is the material of the bag to make sure that it has the proper thickness. Although the bag should not be overly thick and bulky, you also do not want to end up with a bag that is too thin either. The thickness of the bag should be proper for the material that is used to make the bag so a cotton bag should be thicker than a polyester bag. If the material looks as if it is paper thin, then this is a sign that something is wrong with the bag. You will also want to make sure that the material is consistent throughout the bag as well. For example, there shouldn’t be any random areas that deviate from the general thickness of the rest of the bag. The exception is reinforced areas which may be thicker.

After you have looked at the material, you will want to look at the bags stitching to make sure that all of the sewing is high quality. This is a critical area of importance because the stitching is what holds the bag together. Weak stitching will cause the bag to separate at the seams and fall apart which is something that you do not want to experience. There are a few different ways that you can tell if a bag has low-quality stitching or sewing. One way is to look for any loose threads in the bag since loose threads will get caught and start to unravel the rest of the stitching. There should not be any loose threads when the bag is brand new and should they start to develop as you own the bag, you will want to cut them off promptly. The other thing that you will need to check is the stitching is tight and all of the threads are grouped closely together. This will help improve the strength of the seams which will make the bag stronger in the long run.

After you have looked at the stitching, you should turn your attention to the zippers on the bag if they are present. One of the signs of a low quality and possibly counterfeit product is zippers that are made of plastic rather than metal. Plastic zippers cost less and they are not even used on Kavu bags so this is a warning sign that something is wrong. All of the zippers on the bag should be made of metal and the zippers should move freely as you close and then open the bag. When you have closed the zippers, they should stay shut so that your items do not fall out of any the pockets. You will also want to make sure that the zippers do not catch on the fabric of the bag either because this can cut into or tear the bag.

The shoulder straps are the final problem area that you will want to inspect when you are looking at a Kavu bag. One of the things that you need to check is that the strap is large enough for the size of the bag that you are buying. In other words, it is ok for a small and lightweight bag to have a small shoulder strap, but a heavy duty rucksack should have strong and wide shoulder straps. The straps also need to be attached to the bag in a strong and secure fashion so that they do not pull away from the bag and tear it.

If you take the time to look at these areas of the bag, then you will most likely end up with a Kavu bag that you can count on to be a high-quality bag. The better job you do at inspecting the bag up front, the less chance that you have of getting a bag that you will need to exchange or return. This will save you time and frustration and will also lead to you being more satisfied with your purchase.

Q: Are Kavu bags waterproof?
A: Many Kavu bags are water resistant but none of them are fully waterproof. Generally speaking, the bags that are made from materials such as polyester and nylon will resist water because these materials do not absorb moisture. Bags that are made from cotton canvas will not be water resistant because cotton absorbs moisture. You can always test that the bag when it is empty to see how well it will resist water which will give you an idea as to how well it will perform in the rain.

Q: Can I treat the cotton canvas bags to make them more water resistant?
A: There are plenty of waterproofing sprays and treatments that are available on the open market which will help improve the water resistance of any fabric. They work by plugging the air holes in a fabric or material that would normally allow water to penetrate through a fabric in order to make it more resistant to water. If you want to improve the water resistance of your Kavu bag, you can try one of these treatments but you should do so on the inside of the bag first to make sure they do not harm the bag.

Q: Can I get the same pattern again in my bag?
A: We have all been in a situation where we love what we have and would simply like to replace an old and worn out product with exactly the same thing. Unfortunately, Kavu does not make the same pattern twice which means that you will never be able to exactly replace a bag. However, Kavu is always updating their styles so this will give you the opportunity to find something that is more modern that you may like even better.

Q: How are the sling and rope bags different?
A: Many consumers are confused by the rope and sling bags because they appear to be similar products. The difference between the two models is the type of material that is used to make the bags. The sling bags are made from polyester which offers you better resistance to water and moisture. The rope bag, on the other hand, is made of cotton canvas which gives you the opportunity to purchase a softer and more natural looking product.
