I love my new backpack. I especially like the bottom compartment for storing my gym clothes and shoes separately. The front compartment is handy for slipping in things I want easy access to. The side netting for water bottles seems good and sturdy too, which I like. The inside holds all my things so they are organized and easy to find. I use my pack daily during the week. I wish the bottom of the pack was flatter, but that's only a minor complaint--adjusting my belongings in the bottom compartment helps with that.
