Good not perfect backpack

Reviewed by teacher from VA on Wednesday, August 13, 2014
I bought this for a school backpack knowing that it was probably larger than I really needed it to be. It's a Marmot so the quality is obviously there and its a steal at this price. But I returned it based on the zippers. They are very difficult to open and close due to the little cover flap on them. The pulls are not well-designed in terms of allowing easy access. Since the zippers would be used multiple times per day, it just wasn't practical to keep. Otherwise, it is a great pack - lots of pockets,a very firm (perhaps too firm?) back to the pack and well-padded sleeve for the laptop. The bottle pockets on the sides were ample and easy to use. I would have kept it if the zippers weren't so difficult!
