    • Nice for the price.

      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.

    • Just what I expected

      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

    • Good Medium Sized Backpack

      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.

    • Great design but not for a laptop

      I ordered this for my husband, who was having a hard time finding a backpack that didn't look like he'd stolen it from a 4th grader (he's 6'3") and could handle a lot of daily abuse. He's a student at the conservatory, so typically lugs his 17" laptop, books, notebooks, percussion mallets, metronome, lunch, water bottle, etc. around campus, so needs a bag with lots of storage. This backpack fits him very well, has high quality zippers and fabric, lots of organizer pockets, padded shoulder straps and is built to take a beating. And he really likes the color, the reflective piping and it's comfortable to wear when fully loaded. One downside--his laptop does not fit in the largest sections of the backpack. Now, to be fair, this bag isn't designed with a laptop compartment, but since the bag measures 18.5" long, I thought the laptop could fit in there as it measures 17.3" long. Still a great bag--but going to have to exchange it to find something that works.

    • Great backpack

      This is a great backpack! I am going back to grad school and wanted something big enough to carry a laptop, iPad, and my books- it does this no problem. It holds what I need without being cumbersome and the three main compartments make it easy to get to what I need. Very comfortable to carry as well. Much getter quality than some expensive packs I've carried over the years.

    • I love this backpack!

      I love this backpack! I work full time and am a full time graduate student, and I need a backpack that will allow me to carry my laptop, books, all 3 meals, and pretty much my LIFE; this backpack makes the cut! I've been carrying it around stuffed to the brim for weeks now, and it's still in the same shape it was in when I bought it. Hopefully, it lasts as long as my previous backpack (about 5 years!). This backpack is a great product, and a steal!

    • Great backpack / keeps cold/cold.

      We froze Capri Suns and Cokes in the freezer the night before, placed them in the back pack in the insulated part at 5:30 a.m. at 6:00 p.m. the drinks still had ice in them. Really kept cold/cold. The backpack has many pockets, appropriately sized, and all zippers can be closed on either side or the top, for your convience. I really love the back pack. But let me just say, so as not to mislead anyone. The Backpack was in the trunk of the car from 5:30 a.m. until 9:00 a.m., then on the train from 9:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m., then my husband carried it around outside from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m., then back on the train and stayed there until 6:00 p.m. This was in N. FL and S. GA in April. Still, I was impressed.
