I like everything about this bag, the pockets are the right size and numerous, except that you must zip it or it upends and spills. The zippers are not as useful as the magnetized closure on another bag I had and as you have to go around corners for them to work its not as efficient as it might be.
This was a perfect backpack, just the size for me, a great look and just enough pockets and zippers for everything. And then, after I'd used it so happily for 5 days, the lower strap broke off the bag, rendering the backpack useless. I could probably return it, but it is a lot of trouble and extra money to figure out to pack and then mail it back.
It is stated that it can be zipped up to use as a sling bag, but it doesn't really work that way. The pockets on the sides fall open and I had things fall out. The inside zip pocket already has ripped and so what was in there is in the lining of the bag. Waste of money.
The Adi Designs Flip-Top Backpack is perfect if it is going to be used as a purse. It's medium size fits a wallet, makeup, cell phone, tissues, etc... The quality is in line with the price. Nothing high-end, but sufficient. The one draw-back is that it arrived having a foul odor. I allowed it to air out for about a week before using it. Otherwise, it is a great backpack/purse at a great price.
Got this backpack elsewhere for about the same price - best purchase I ever made - great for shopping as it keeps ur hands free and little risk of forgetting it - love to walk to library with it to bring books home - durable, spacious and Even has an inner zipped pocket - does fade on light colors in the summer due to sweat - just wear a dark shirt if ur going on a long hot walk
