Love my bag!

I had thus bag for a few years and just got better looking as it gets old. The worn out look makes it like an old reliable fried.

Great quality

I absolutely love the quality and build of the very durable backpack. Im 6’ tall and have a large chest and my only regret is not getting a larger size. This backpack looks very small on my back.

the look and color she wanted...

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Style-check. Function-pretty much. You're not going to want to load this up with books for a day on campus or a hydration bladder for a day on the trail. But as a purse substitute for essentials and a puffy jacket and nalgene--does all that with aplomb. Wife loves it and style-matches the mini kankens our kiddos have. Color seemed a little off from what is pictured but that can likely be a 'monitor' or 'photography' anomaly vs dye lot.

Love this bag!

I love this bag! An excellent size, perfect for a small laptop and a book or two or just the size for a day trip. Great quality and the color is super cute. Above all I love this company, eco friendly and responsible. Will buy from this company again for sure!

Love It

I love this backpack. It’s a beautiful color and i love the leather. the size is good for school work. a little small and is better for non-heavy work but totally amazing for traveling and for aesthetic pictures. It’s super cute and you guys should definitely get it.

excellent for school!

I was worried that this wouldn’t fit my binders for school, fits 2 regular binders and a laptop comfortably. a bit on the small side if you pack heavily but okay for minimalists. also a great carry on!!

I adore it!!!!! It was pouring down rain and everything inside stayed completely dry!!!! Also small enough to not be cumbersome but big enough to hold everything I need.
