The Cutility Pack is the most versatile of the Co-Kan lineup. It's a lolita fashion style ita bag with a secure, swappable fabric insert and two straps. It comes with a pack of color matching safety pins as well for your decorating pleasure! It's even got outside lacing, which is great for hanging decorations! The main interior pocket stays open on its own due to the sturdiness of the bag and measures 11" long by 8" deep by 3-4" wide. This ita bag would make a great purse, you can fit all sorts of stuff in it!
I love my bag! I got it as soon as I could
It looks great in person and as far as purses go, it has a lot of room. It doesn't have a lot of display space, but you can clip things to the ribbons to add more stuff. I bought the almond one to go with a coord and I definitely recommend this to others looking for a stylish looking purse/backpack. The only problem I had with it is that I kept pinning things inside upside down, because I'd flip out the insert, pin stuff to it, and flip in back in.
So I'm honestly really surprised by how roomy this is - it fits a scorbunny in there with 0 trouble and room for more! The material is smooth, I love the insert and the fact that I can switch from side bag to backpack and if I wanted to I can replace the ribbons (will possibly do for an OTP bag). In terms of space to display merch this *is* a downgrade from every other bag Co-Kan has had available so it might be better as an all around bag or rare pairs. I did wish there was a way to buy more inserts although I think I can use some of my inserts from older bags in it with little trouble. The only thing I dislike about the bag at this time is the front clasp. It's magnetic and the clasp itself holds well... but I'm worried that if I put too much force to open the bag it might tear the bit of fabric that protrudes out for the opposite side of the clamp. That said, it feels really well sewn on so while I worry about this possibility it seems very unlikely.
Thank you for your awesome review and pictures! We're aware of the front clasp and after extensive testing we decided it was sturdy enough for use. Simply put, we tried to break one and we couldn't. We'll keep an ear out if people run into trouble with it. We'll begin offering replacement inserts soon, so stay tuned!
So I originally bought this as a gift for someone during Black Friday, but upon receiving it and looking it over - I fell in love with it. While it lacks the back window, the ability to swap between backpack and messenger bag is probably the best thing about it. I love how deep the pocket is too. If the OTB was as deep, I’d be set since I keep my tablet with me. Only thing missing are the inside pockets like the OTB. Anyway, GREAT BAG!!! Waiting for the black to restock. Ordering another so I can give this one as intended.
Heya Cassie! Thank you for being the first to review the Cutility Pack! We're glad you like it! We'll be getting more in stock later this month. Stay tuned!
