Stylish but not worth it...
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This backpack LOOKS great... unfortunately the design of the continuous strap is terrible. It's not worth it in my opinion. Every time you put it on the backpack falls down to the back of your legs and the other strap collapses making you look foolish as you try to get that other arm in! The same is valid when you take it off... It's super embarrassing to sneak into class late, slip one arm out and have the backpack slam on the desk behind you... Don't ask me how I know. ;) The only explanation is that nobody at Nixon or BC ever tried this on because it is impossible to look past this flaw.
Trying to love it
I really like the idea of this pack and I love how minimal it is and it fits such a small amount of stuff but is what I wanted. Here are my gripes. the backpack straps are one continuous strap that moves between a rectangular D ring in the top center. Which means every time you take the pack on or off one strap instantly takes all the slack and becomes twice as long. Drives me nuts, so i've been wearing it as a messenger bag and it works great this way. Also my 15" Macbook Pro barely fits and I have to take it out of it's separate sleeve in order for it to fit and the zippers scratch the surface as it slides in. I really am trying to love it, but we'll see how much the pros and cons can balance out.
