"The backpack is great, I got the purple color because it's my favorite color. The color is a weird bright grape color. I feel like the front pockets are too small, and the little slots for pens are too flat to be able to actually fit a pen in it. I realized after I got it that it's a laptop backpack, but the extra pouch that's closest to the back when wearing makes it super uncomfortable because you can feel everything that is in there. The tabs are strings knotted once and one of mine has come apart. I had to knot it twice to make sure it doesn't happen again.
Overall, it is a great backpack and very durable. I especially love the fact there's extra cloth on the bottom so my binder and books don't poke holes on the bottom like it did with my old backpack."
"I purchaged the bag for my son and this is what he said: I like the bag - the only negative thing is you have to make sure the top is pulled over/out to use the zipper without any problems. Overall - a great book bag."
"This bag is very pretty, comfortable and organized. It has a large section to put my laptop and iPad in which I like so it doesn't scratch. One thing I wish it had was a bottle holder on the side for added convenience."
"I love the color blue. The bag is so much nicer to look at. When you open the big part of the backpack, it is very spacious . I can put everything I need like my lunch and school books. Even though it does not have the water bottle holder, the bag is just what I wanted."

"I originally bought this bag becuase my first choice couldn't fit my old laptop. Getting my old laptop to fit was my main reason purchasing this bag(15inch laptop with 1.25in thick when folded).
I like the amount of space & organization this bag has to offer. However my only complaint is that the straps on the bag are too thin. They end up digging into my shoulders if worn for a long period of time. If they can widen the straps, I believe this bag would be perfect."
