Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I ordered the Sky Blue Kipling backpack for an upcoming school trip is Europe. I also ordered the matching pencil case. Unfortunately, I never recived the pencil case, but I got two backpacks! I gave the other one to my sister and we both love them. They hold a fair amount and have many pockets. I would recommend this backpack to students and travellers as the organizational pocket is the perfect spot for a passport and other essentials. This backpack will not hold more than a 1 inch staples binder, a huge high school science textbook, large pencil case, big five star notebook and large lunch pail. (If you place the items in pockets.) Other than the absence of an exterior water bottle pocket, this is an awesome backpack.
I was cleaning out my backpack a couple days ago and I realized I couldn't find my review on Amazon for this product. Well, what I can say is that this is an amazing bag! It has just the right amount of padding on the straps to make it easy on your shoulders. There are enough pockets and compartments to keep all your stuff organized. The construction is top notch - I bought this backpack on September 2011, it's nearly August 2012, and I can't find a stitch out of place.
I'm very, very rough on my backpacks. This was used every day as I lugged around heavy textbooks, my laptop, and sometimes even changes of clothing. I took it to the airport as my carry-on bag and it went through security with no problem. I'm used to backpacks lasting me a year at most in highschool...but as a rising sophomore, I see that this is going to last WAY longer! Overall, I'm very pleased.
A word of warning, though: "laptop protection" on this bag is only on the sides...NOT on the bottom...
I love all of my kipling bags and have been purchasing them since 2010. The design is bright, unique, and efficient! I love putting my beats headphones in the compartment at the top for easy access. Also, I had a water bottle that leaked and luckily it did not soak through my whole bag! It's strong enough to hold all of my books (undergrad with texts as big as my head), or I'll use it for short trips which require flying (organized compartments allow for speeding through TSA). Kipling should be a household name, the quality of these bags are amazing!
