    Really like the deep side pockets-- deep enough so water bottles won't slide out, as they often do in other backpacks. Also like the two small easily- accessible small pockets on top. Great for sunglasses, snacks, etc..Another great feature is the built-in carrying handle on the shoulder straps.

    This day pack was a good internal size, but the straps were not long enough or sturdy enough for me, a medium sized woman, and the computer sleeve made it bulky (without a laptop in it) and actually came up too high on my neck making it uncomfortable. Not what I needed. I just returned it.

    First let me say that I'm 60 years old and yes, sometimes I still use a backpack ! In addition, I'm vertically challenged at 5'2" on a good day ! Having said that, this backpack is comfortable yet sturdy, roomy but not huge,and the colors are appropriate for any age. I suppose if you were a college student with tons of books it might not be big enough, but for everything else, I think it is PERFECT.

    I should first note that I do ridiculously large amounts of research on anything before I purchase it. I mean, I was even YouTubing this product before I bought it just to really see what I was getting (I recommend you do the same, if you're curious). I knew what to expect, so no surprise here that I give it a 5 star rating. The product was/is rated high on other sites, is really spacious (it can even hold my 17-inch studio laptop...not comfortably, but it zips up in there!), and looks stylish with quality design. It's a sweet backpack, end of story!

    I didn't like this pack and returned it. The colors of the pack did not match the colors on the picture: the dark grey looked white, and the green looked a diff. tone of green. Overall, the pack didn't look small and cute and nicely made as it looks on the photo, but rather cheap.

    Love, love, love this bag! Big enough to fit your laptop, few big books, lunch, bottle and other necessities, but super light... Two top compartments for your phone, keys, wallet... Front compartment for pens and other stuff and then there's your huge main compartment with separation for your laptop. Two side cmpartments for your bottle and you are set to go! This bag is super comfortable on my back, already took it to college a few times, can't be happier. Repaced another bag (NOT Dakine) whose own weight made it impossible for practical use. Anyone who is on the road day and night, working or studying would be a content owner, because whatever you need to take, this bag can hold it!

    Bought this for my husband. Way too small. Seemed like it would be for a kid. Wanted a manly version of the Jewel. This was not it. Returned.
