Hey everyone, I'm always super skepti of reviews on this site, esp. 5-stars, but I was thinking about buying a new backpack today (it's on sale) and thought...why? I have a good one already — it's this one — and felt compelled to write a review. I've had this backpack for nearly two years and use it almost every day. Sometimes it's just my laptop. Sometimes it's stuffed with climbing gear or going on a multi-day bike tour. Sometimes it's raining. Sometimes it's adorned with bike lights or GPS trackers. It's never broken (well, I smashed the buckle on the chest-strap, but it's not big enough to ever be heavy enough to require it, so no biggie), it's never ripped or torn, and it always seems to have that extra couple inches of volume that fits that one last thing I probably won't need. It's a great backpack and I encourage you to buy it if you care about those things. It's not the most stylish thing I own (hence the thought about the new backpack), but you know what? It's a backpack. I never see it while I'm using it anyways.
Bought this backpack for a Disneyland trip. I liked all the pockets and it was comfortable to wear. The only thing I didn't like was there was only 1 mesh water bottle pocket and it was too short so my water bottle kept falling out of it.
I read the reviews on this item and was very happy to find that I got what I was expecting. The pack is large enough to carry a day's worth of camera, wallet, water bottle, maps, first aid kit, snacks and the like for our trip to AZ. It is well made, has a couple of very padded and expandable pockets, and is a great choice for someone seeking a light hiking pack.
From other reviews I anticipated that this bag would be big enough for my middle schooler. I am sad to say it is barely big enough for a preschooler. No room for lunch or a binder. The only reason I gave it 2 stars is because the quality seems decent. the size description, I felt was misleading. It definitely is being returned, so if you are looking at this as a school backpack, it is not big enough.Very disappointed
We purchased this backpack primarily for airplane travel, as we needed a bag that could hold a purse and fit under the seat in front of us. This backpack does the job well and is comfortable to carry. We can put a pair of shoes in outer mesh pocket which is a real plus when traveling. I'd buy it again.
The internal capacity is MUCH smaller than it would appear by the dimensions indicated in the description. The internal pockets for pens, phones, etc. do not hold a smart phone and / or a case for glasses. The first time I tried to use the internal key strap (one of the reasons, I chose this pack) the snap hook came loose form the strap. Apparently not sewn on very well. Since I have used it, and discarded the tags I cannot return it so look for at a Goodwill store near you soon.
It's great to carry this lightweight backpack, which has tons of storage pockets and space. Can't believe this is made out of recycled plastic materials so it's also eco-friendly. It was my carry-on to Morocco, and I took it everywhere, even when camping in the desert. Love it! My first backpack in forever, and I can't believe I lived without it all this time.
