Sought long and hard for this one

This bag replaced a 10 year old backpack for me and it has not been disappointing. I was pretty picking before buying this and this was the best combo I could find as far as functionality, looks, and price. My main use is for school. The organizaiton of the pockets is really nice and the water bottle mest holders are great for a nalgene and also holds my U-Lock for my bike very easily. The first day I used this it was raining pretty good and even with it getting water thrown on it from my bike's rear wheel, my notebooks were still dry. I can easily see myself holding onto this for another 10 years.

School bag / Adventure bag

Great for my kid’s school use and also on the weekends for day trips. My middle-schooler loves it.

Amazing backpack for travel

I used this backpack as my only pack/suitcase for 6 weeks of overseas travel and it was a perfect. I am a pretty minimal packer, but I still still able to fit things like all of my clothes, make-up, hair straightener, other toiletries, electronics, and other misc. items for 6 weeks. I like that the backpack itself is pretty light (roughly 0.5 kg / 1 lb) and is not bulky. It seems well constructed and high quality. I like that the exterior fabric is actually quite stretchy, so I was able to stuff some extra clothes/souvenirs inside as I did some shopping along the way, lol. I'm 5'5"/130lb/female and I found that it fit me well and was super comfy as I took it on transit/through airports, especially if I buckled the chest strap. 10/10 recommended.

Love this thing

This is well-thought out and consists of high-quality construction. Just the right number of compartments in the right places, including a laptop compartment, and it is so comfortable! This is replacing my old backpack that finally retired after 20 years.

Great bag for school & shorter day hikes

Been very happy with my other BD backpack but needed something a little better suited for campus but would also last me a long time. This bag definitely fits my needs for day to day school life as well as having a better design for long days on campus and shorter length hikes. Only have had this bag for a week at this point but I’d much rather spend this money once on a school bag that will last for many years rather than having cheaper, uncomfortably designed bag I need to replace almost annually. Laptop slot holds multiple different laptop sizes snug and having a few different internal organization pockets is super useful. Best thing about this bag so far is the water bottle/shoe holders. Haven’t had a chance to use them for my shoes yet but the super tall pockets allows for really secure storage of my 1L Nalgene, but you can fit pretty much any bottle size in there.
