Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I used to have a perfect backpack for my computer and daily needs. It was a climbing backpack, so it was quite narrow at the bottom, and a little wider at the top. It was perfect because I'm 5'4", and while my shoulders are wide enough to be considered athletic-looking, they aren't particularly broad. That bag finally broke, and was discontinued, so I've been on the lookout for a couple of years for a replacement. I hoped this could be that replacement.
The problem is that while the bottom of the pack is nice and narrow (really nice for women), then top is so wide that it looks like a beetle back on my back. It's just too weird. I'm 50/50 on returning it, because I love the green color. If it had been the full price like on a certain recreational store's site, I would definitely return it.
The moral of the story is: if you're 5'6"+ then this bag will probably work really well for you. Just not ideal for the petite lady.
I have had major trouble finding a backpack that holds what I need it too (like a whole binder and in this case, my mac actually fits inside the well-protected inner compartment perfectly) because these types of packs always look so dumb when you put them on if you're a normal size human or smaller.
All of the compartments make storing small items perfect so you can access them easily even when a lot of big items are still inside. The craftsmanship is top notch and I think the material is high-quality and durable. Haven't tested it out in the rain yet, but there appear to be several flaps and closures to prevent water from getting in through the zippers. I couldn't be more satisfied with my purchase. I don't think you can go wrong as long as you buy this size.
I love this for it's size although it is low-profile. It just barely carries all my stuff for school. I manage to stuff it with my laptop, and several notebooks and one binder. It's not as great for large textbooks or large binders, but you can make it work sometimes. I also manage to carry pens, pencils, wallet, iPod, phone, etc. in the extra front pockets, but wish there was more room in that area.
The low-profile means this pack stays close to your back. I feel like this reduces the strain on my shoulders most of the time. It is very nicely built for a woman's frame.
