The Polaris 33 is one of those rare items in life that actually looks better in real life than in person. Plenty of items can be stored in the 5 compartments. The very front compartment with the zipper pull down may be more of a gimmick than anything, but I still like it. I feel that there is always room for improvement on a backpack, but the only real complaints I have for the Polaris 33 is that the water bottle holders don't work that well and there is no little hole for headphone wires to pass through. The sunglass holder might look unusual, but I found it to be convenient. Good padding and support straps for a bag in this price range.
