"I am so disappointed with the second version! I have the original version and was excited when I found out that they updated it by keeping all the same awesome old features and adding some new pockets, zippers, etc. However, upon arrival, I noticed the middle compartment was not a 2 way zip as described and the internal organization pocket is missing a zippered pocket and does not look anything like the photo! I am currently using my old one as a diaper bag and purse. It rocks... and is still in great condition. Too bad the new version doesn't match the description or photos... will be returning it! Missing the following that was described: Exterior front two way zip round compartment Interior includes zipper pocket, three pen holders"

"Being an avid fan of Kipling all these years, the latest revision to the Challenger II is a huge letdown. To begin with, they have taken away all the features that makes Kipling so awesome: now ALL the zips are one-way, when before, the 2 bigger compartments spotted 2-way zippers; the 2 side velcro'ed pockets have also been removed, as was the extra zippered pocket in the second compartment. I had really liked the side pockets for keeping small items like transport passes, lipbalms, hand sanitisers, packet of tissues and even my bunch of keys etc. I haven't any luck with putting my waterbottle in the side pocket without it jutting out too much, but I've been able to put a small foldable umbrella there. Now those two pockets are gone. I was also partial to the additional zippered pocket in the middle compartment(one of the upgrades from the original Challenger)--I used it to keep more important receipts or even extra cash when I travel. This too, was removed in the latest Challenger II. What remained was the hidden ipod pocket at the top back of the bag, another nifty feature I love, so although I was glad to see that it's still there, it wasn't enough to make up for my overall disappointment with this bag. Perhaps the only improvement is that Kipling has changed the material of the shoulder straps from matching canvas to the same material as the body of the bag, so this is a good thing as the crinkle nylon repels water better. However, this really should be the most logical move, as I imagined it would be easier to just use the same material than to hunt out matching canvas for the shoulder straps, so again, I really don't see it to be such a major upgrade that warrants the removal of the other features. This entire revision smacks of cost-cutting measures, which brings up another beef: the workmanship of Kipling bags isn't as fine as they used to be. Just take a look at the too-long zip in the second compartment--they made the bags look like factory rejects."

"It is a great backpack, is not too big and it is not too small for everyday use. lightweight and have so many pockets. I had an older version too but this one is even better improve from the old one. The sewing inside is much better and has a zipper inside the front pocket and ipod zipper on top which the old one doesn't have."
