The backpack is the perfect size for carrying especially soft items. I purchased it to wear with my casual linen and cotton outfits. I wanted something naturally beautiful and it is all that and very professionally constructed, as well. The only drawback is the fact that the 'button holes' are a little small, however, I noticed that in time they stretched ever so slightly and that's a plus. The side pockets are great for my cell phone and keys and I keep small snacks in the larger side pocket. The drawstring closing the opening of the backpack functions like a charm and there is also a 'holder' attachment if you want to carry it by your side or in a crowded area. This backpack is great for holding a paperback book, a towel and a change of clothes. It is made of 100% hemp and is lightweight and very, very sturdy!...

The bag is very light weight and thin, I tried to get past the mildew smell which is impossible, I have hemp products and they have a nice smell..This is bad..The price was too expensive ..I would return it if the shipping wasn't so high..I am disappointed.This is a Kathmandu product it says recycled hemp..Its recycled alright falling apart recycled..I don't know how they can sell this???Read More
Love this bag, I have taken it all over the world. I've received many compliments and comments on it. It does smell a little when you first receive and when it accidentally gets wet.Read More
This bag is very strong and durable. It is a perfect size for overnight trips, or groceries. I always choose hemp products over cotton for the durability and hope that one day the United States will grow this amazing fiber plant like all the other industrialized nations do.Read More
I bought two of these backpacks I think last year. I was going to give both of them as gifts, but once I got them, I had to keep one. I have a balance problem, so I like to carry a backpack type of purse. This is quite large for this, but I don't care, it's just wonderful. I've washed this bag several times - and I probably shouldn't have done, but the fabric itself is, of course, holding up perfectly. There are some long fly-away strings that stick out of the pockets now, but I tuck them in until I can trace them and see if it'll be okay to snip them. Yeah, the buttons all fell off the pockets, but they were just held on by a thread looped a couple of times, and I didn't expect them to last. znot the way I use this every day as a purse! I bought some Vel-Cro tape and use that, although with the drawstring main compartment, I didn't even *really* need to do that. So anyway - it's a year old, I'm still getting compliments on it. The one I did give away I sent to a teacher who uses it for a book bag. I don't think it would be a great bookbag for a high-level highschool kid or a college person, because they have to carry such huge loads, but for anything short of that, it's wonderful. Just wonderful.Read More
This backpack is EXTREMELY well made with precision to detail. I am very pleased. I was looking for a light backpack that could still take a beating with all the things I do. Natural looking and timeless, it fits my needs perfectly. It is very roomy on the inside with a large opening, but has a soft yet strong rope to cinch up the top. The buttons are a little hard to manipulate and the shoulder straps are not padded ...but that only affects me because of recent surgeries to neck and shoulder....resulting in clumsy fingers and a overly sensitive neck. But the material will only get softer and I am looking forward to using it for everything....ranging from taking care of business around town...to a sudden overnighter camping trip. I am considering buying one for a friend. I say buy the bag and support these ladies for their hard work!Read More
This bag was great but after a few months and a few rain storms the buttons fell off and the bag started to fall apart. I would recomend shopping around before you buy this bag.Read More
