I ordered this backpack mostly to carry my books in grad school but also to use for the occasional hike. The blue color is very bright and cheery! The backpack is very light weight and seems to be of good quality. I love all the pockets it has.
I like this backpack, seems pretty sturdy. But I ordered the blue shown, which is turquoise, and it came in light purple. I have noticed people having this problem regardless of where they ordered it. Also, no yellow accent stripe. I will keep it, however, just a little disappointed.
