"this is a high-quality, nice-looking bag. i bought it primarily for its large size - i have a lot of books to carry around. and it's perfect for lugging around books, groceries, clothes, etc. however, it's lack of structure is troubling when there's not much in it. the bottom really only has one seam/corner, allowing it to expand when stuffed. but, when empty, it has no shape and can be %*$bersome to find things in. also, there are no compartments, and only a few small pockets for pens, etc. would be great for weekend trips, etc...but is somewhat undesireable for books."
"I ordered this bag as a simple, carry books from class-to-class, and as an organizational item. Okay, number one, this bag has NO organization whatsoever. It's a bag, and with 'two' pockets. I say two, because in the middle, they are actually just one big one with two zippers. Nothing stays where it is (seriously), and there is no padding at all. I actually, I hate to say, loathed it, and actually sold it a few days ago. I really wouldn't reccomend it for school. But, it is HUGE! HUMUNGOUS!! It is very basic, and is just a very good durable material, and would be good to hold like clothes or something of that sort, but not books, or anything that you want to find again. You actually get lost in the thing. I was extrememly disappointed in this bag. Not worth the money unless you are going to drag it on the floor (really superb durabliity) or perhaps leave it on the roof of your car.
Even though this purchase of mine wasn't the best; I must add, ebags.com rocks though!"
"I bought this bag for my daughter who is entering middle school this fall. She loves it because it is big enough to handle text books, notebooks and all her supplies. It also has ample room for her personal items, which keeps her from carrying a purse.
This was our first purchase from eBags, but I'm certain it is not our last."
"This thing is HUGE! It's great to finally have a bag that can hold all my books at once. I knew I wanted this bag because two of my friends own them and wouldn't be without them. I can carry my books, my computer, an elephant, a handlefull of pens, a sack lunch, and still have room for my wallet, keys, and iPod. If you have a lot of stuff and you need a bag to carry it around in without breaking your shoulder or your bank account, this is the bag for you. Enjoy."
"This bag is durable and practical for school, work, or weekend trips. It fits my laptop, books, clothes, practically anything you could need. I've had it for six months and have dragged it all over the subway and it hasn't worn at all. It's comfy as well on my shoulder, unlike some bags which hurt."

"The bag is quite large inside...plenty big enough to fit a laptop and several books. (However, there is not a padded laptop compartment). The carrying handle makes it easy to pick up. It seems very well built, and I would reccommend it."
"I put a lot of research into this bag before purchasing and I couldn't be happier. My only hesitation ordering it was the incredible cubic volume the bag will hold. That said, from the numbers, I was expecting a bag that seemed much larger and when it arrived I was almost shocked at how small it was... until I opened it up and realized just how much this bag can carry. It will hold several textbooks plus a change of clothes and shoes, or leave out the shoes and toss in a 12 pack of your favorite soda."
