    I use this backpack for weekend errands and shopping. I prefer to keep my hands free. I like the outside pockets for keeping my keys, metro pass and other things I need to get quickly. It is bigger than I expected but for the price, it is a keeper.

    First off, I only gave this product 4 stars because I'm not that excited about the color (the multicolored stripy one that I think isn't even available anymore). I kind of wish I'd ordered the grey or black one, but not enough to be motivated to exchange. I can get over myself with the color (I just feel, at 42, kind of old for what reminds me of those Grateful Dead era ponchos that my high school classmates were into).

    Otherwise, geez, not a detail was left unaddressed on this backpack. It has a compartment for absolutely everything. I'm messy by nature, so I'm hoping that having very specific pockets will discourage me from dumping everything in the main compartment and hoping for the best.

    The padded straps are wonderful, and do not dig, even with a heavy load.

    Really great, especially considering the ridiculously fair price!

    When I bought this backpack for my middle school daughter I had reservations that it would not have adequate room….and it did not. The “floor” of the backpack is less than 5” with the top portion even more narrow.
    It is a beautiful, well-constructed backpack with a very well-padded compartment for a laptop and would be perfect for a laptop with just a few books or binders. A gave the backpack a 3 rating due to its size and I will have to return it. If I were rating the quality of the construction of the backpack alone I would give it a 4 or 5.

    This is a great size pack for day hikes or to bring to work. Ample space but not too large

    This backpack is incredible for a college student who loves to organize. There are plenty of pockets for all of your little objects, including one for sunglasses and a cooler-insulated pocket. I cannot stress enough how sturdy and well-made the zippers are. They are hefty, but glide open and closed extremely well. The laptop sleeve can fit my behemoth of a laptop no problem. The shoulder straps are padded and very comfortable, and the waist strap is height adjustable. If this backpack was full of books, I'd imagine it would be way too big for a young child, but would probably work for most middle-schoolers and up. This is hands down the best backpack I've ever owned.

    I am happy with it. I had a backpack w way too many pockets/hard to find everything. I like how this one is easy to find stuff w 3 outer compartments that open directly to items/no shuffling around. The con is the pens compartment is very small, but it works. It remarkably fits everything i had in my huge backpack and i like that the laptop area is not bulky, so can use for books. It is comfortable to pack around, even w heavy books.. Note: it's not for packing every textbook u own. I comfortably fit 2 one inch binders, a 1 inch notebook, a thin textbook, and one huge 3 ring anatomy lab book. I love the glasses compartment. Handier than i thought it would be. The biggest pro is no more frustration and wasted time shuffling through a backpack.
