this product is very well made and has room for everything. I am currently using it to carry my computer and binders to and from work, but will be using it for travel, as well. It is just the right size and will be easy to fit into overhead bins in airplanes. I love the color and recomment this to all who want to save their backs.
I am a IT tech, so I need a bag with a lot of space to carry extra cables, extra equipment, as well as my personal equipment. I had an awesome Swiss Backpack but the weight was killing my shoulder, needed something that I could wheel when I needed to. The handle and wheels do seem sturdy so I am eager to try it out. I wish there more pockets, the side mesh should have been higher. I used to be able to keep a couple of surge protectors and a tiny umbrella in my old bag, not going to happen with this one. I like a lot of smaller compartments to keep USB drives, wire ties, etc...also lacking here. Maybe Olympia can make a backpack for techs in mind...
My daughter needed a sturdy bag with wheels & a handle & I came across this one. I'm SO GLAD I bought it. On most of the bags I looked at, the handle height was always too short OR the actually book bag was too small. I can tell you that's not the case with this bag-- the handle is the perfect height for her or me (I'm 5'11") & it's very roomy inside. She can carry it comfortably AND can drag it around with ease. I highly recommend this backpack!!!
Ordered this for my 6th grade boy. He has to put every book, a 3 ring binder and several 1 subject notebooks in this bag. It was pricey but well worth it. It holds all of his stuff. Wheels look very sturdy. He handle also works good because he sleds his lunchbox over the handle and pulls it with his backpack. I would buy this bag again.
This is my second Olympia Backpack to purchase. The first one lasted 17 years. The last 5 have been in a hot Texas garage not being used. The zippers were not as easy to use after enduring that heat. My new Olympia bag is awesome and I expect to get the same wear out of this one.
My 9 year old daughter saw this online and really wanted it for the next school year (2015-2016). It made it from August to November at which time the right strap came off and she could no longer carry it on her back. She liked the rolling feature but was uncomfortable to sit with it on her back on the school bus. I have never had a backpack break within the school year before and decided I would try to return or exchange it on this web site. However, when I did, I received the message that I was outside the return period. Very disappointed in this purchase.
So far seems great, have only had it a couple of weeks. We were going to get a Lands End, but reviews were not good. This one was also $**. Less. We got the green which is a much better shade in person. I was not crazy about the shade on line bit m6 son loves green. Darker and nicer in person. Very happy.
