This backpack is nifty. I honestly use it all the time. For my 20 mile bike ride to work, it's a great way to utilize space without straining my back, and my stuff also stays secure because of the cross body feature. There's no annoying 'flopping around' that occurs with the typical two-strap backpack, and the backpack is also easily synched for the desired tightness. Other's argue that it's too small, but I've been able to fit a Macbook Air, textbook, and small personal items in there just fine. There's also another inside pocket within the larger one for valuables, etc. Overall, a fantastic backpack. I get compliments on it all the time, and am really glad that I bought it. My only desire would be a smaller, water-tight pocket within the smaller of the two pockets on their, but a small water-tight case easily fixes that dilemma. I'm highly satisfied.
