The zipper on my backpack from high school finally gave out - amazing after 15 years of service! I was hard pressed to find something I liked and hadn't been backpack shopping in a long while. I looked and looked and finally settled on this little beauty. I often commute to work by bike, so I wanted something spacious for a change of clothes, but also not cumbersome for the bike ride. At first I was concerned that the very thick straps would bite into my neck (I am a female with average shoulder width and a small neck.) They certainly felt a bit uncomfortable, but after adjusting the straps a bit - I had no problem. I wore the backpack around the house filled with books and was surprised at how light the backpack felt once on my back. I think I am going to fall in love with this one, but will need a little time to get used to it. Especially after using the same backpack for 15 years!
