"Originally bought this pack for a commuter pack, but found it to be a bit on the small side. My daughter ended up taking it and using it for church school. Large enough to hold what she needs to carry....folder (although it is a little short for the folder to be carried with out bending the edges), note book,& pencil case. I bought it because I loved the pockets on the outside and the smaller pocket just above the two double pockets, just wish it was a little (just a little) bigger. Overall great pack if you need a small one."
"Buyers be warned when buying this Firefly bag, because I received a 'Lippa Drawstring' in the package instead. Luckily, this backpack is just the right size as a school backpack to carry my high school items. There is a pocket on each side that fits my 4G iPhone and keys perfectly!
The downsides to this product is that the front compartment has a pencil pocket and mini phone pocket, but they are unattractive and I won't use them. The big pocket inside can carry my retainers.
The material is water-proof, so that's a plus because it's almost always raining in NYC. Even though the Lippa Drawstring is cute, I wish the back had more composure, because it's always slouching. There's no support at the back, but at least it makes the bag soft and comfortable to place on my lap on the subway or bus.
Overall, I would recommend the Lippa Drawstring for school, business, or heavy travel, but I would use the Firefly for travel or as a light substitute."
