"A great bag overall. I like the 2 pockets on the outside which are big enough to hold a bunch of small items but don't add any bulk to the bag. The mesh bottle holder is a great plus too. The only issue I have is if I put items in the main compartment but not in the laptop compartment (the large pocket closer to your back) it makes the bag sag and pull, but this is easily remedied by moving the items to the laptop section. Really a very tall bag for even 17" computers...will have plenty of room for my stuff and even room to throw in an umbrella or sweater!"

"Book bag is GREAT! It fits all of my books/binders plus my lap top and its accessories without looking too bulky on my back. The padding on the straps makes it a comfortable wear for my 7 block trek everyday to class."

"The Merit is a spacious and light pack. I like the large sleeve that easily fits a 15 laptop, and I like the two main compartments that hold a lot of books. I am a law student and the books are bulky and heavy. So far, the Merit has held up to the abuse and holds all the books for a week of class (if you are insane enough to carry them) at the same time. If I could change something about the bag, it would be to make the bottom organizer pocket larger and give it two zippers for convenience. Otherwise, I am very happy with the bag."

"I am a high school student and I needed a new large, durable backpack that would hold all of my school books and laptop because I generally don't have time to go to my locker between classes. I looked at a lot of backpacks in the store and nothing seemed large enough. My mom found this website and I read the reviews of many backpacks and this one sounded like what I was looking for. When it came in the mail it was so flat and lightweight I thought for sure it wouldn't be big or strong enough, but it is. I've carried it every day for about a month now with tons of books and my laptop and it's been perfect. So glad I got it. Highly recommended."

"Overall a great backpack! fits my 17" laptop which eliminates the need for a separate bag for that. wish it had more compartments for pens and pencils etc. fits my notebooks and textbooks perfectly. the straps are great because they distribute the weight of everything nicely. would recommend for most students.

"Actually I am rating this for my high school student son. He uses this bag every day at school and it has held up well. Because it is black it doesn't show dirt and is rugged enough for someone who is not gentle with his backpack."

"This item was bought for my daughter who is attending the university. She needed a backpack that's much roomier than the average, able to hold big heavy books, laptop and art supplies. Other than portfolio-sized items, this backpack holds everything. It's a great size and looks cool, too. Definitely worth the price!"

"Appearance is good, and I don¿t really care much about it. The most important thing is: it is big enough for my books, two laptops, and meal boxes. So I guess it must be designed for heavy load. So I would recommend this if you need to carry a lot."
