    Great Backpack!

      I purchased this bag for college and found the multiple compartments of the bag roomy. There is enough space to lug a good 4 books including a laptop in the main compartment. I used the smaller compartments to stow power plugs, and other loose articles. An interior zipper pouch in the middle compartment houses my calculator, pens, mouse, usb sticks. The exterior sides of the water bottles are a great idea to avoid taking space inside the bag, and the straps comfortably distribute the weight of a heavy bag pretty well without killing your shoulders or back. Both the bottom and the exterior material seem fairly sturdy and appear to be capable of handling tough environments. Overall I would say this bag is great and doesn't disappoint.


        This backpack is exactly what I need, there's plenty of room for all my stuff, lots of packets, the materials looks durable. The only negative about this backpack is the zipper, they could have used a better one.
