Favorite Backpack

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have had tons of different backpacks and this one has definitely been my favorite. It easily fits all of my college books and never looks overstuffed. I bring it with me everywhere that I go and use it for almost everything and anything. I wouldn't want another backpack.

I love it!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The color looked better in person and it's quite lovely. The only bad thing is that there isn't much space for all my books, but there is a laptop sleeve which is great. It's my everyday backpack, but I use it for some of my geology trips and it works well for it too! There's a compartment for your pencils and supplies so that's handy. Overall, it's worth the cost.

Not enough room...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

When I first got the backpack it seemed great, but after actually using it, i noticed the back compartment is very snug; I was lucky to fit my MBP 13" with a sweater (not a thick one) and a couple of books from school. If the backpack is "stuffed", any water bottle I seem to carry doesn't hold well and always fall out (my personal experience). I regret this purchase and now buying a new backpack this year. If you aren't carrying a laptop, a 2" binder, and two books, then you might be ok using this backpack. I do not recommend this model back pack at all.

My new backpack came in two days exactly, which was needed for a college student. The backpack is comfy and very durable for weight and weather wise. However it is very hard to carry a full load because you cannot fit a lot of stuff in the big pocket unless you are not carrying items in the front pouch. That is why I gave the backpack 4 stars. Aside from that little detail, I am pleased with my purchase! Would do it again for someone else!

What are these daypack priced at? and when will they be in stock?
