Double Zip Backpack
I purchased this backpack last year for my sophomore year of high school and it worked really well, I have it in ribbons and I love it. It holds alot of stuff and I just overall love it. However, it may hold a lot of stuff but the bag isn't meant for that, I got a huge tear on the back of the bag at the end of the first semester. I still use it as I have just ordered a new bag, and the straps are about to come right out, you can see the pieces on the inside. I also have a friend who was in study hall with me one day and she stood up and her strap just completely broke off. This is due to putting in more things then it is supposed to hold, however if you don't try to put a lot in it really is a great bag.

Only one flaw
I ordered this backpack online (& on sale!) to use for an extended vacation which would include day trips and sightseeing with my husband. A big selling point was the zipper pocket on the back to keep wallet and valuables secure. The pack worked really well. Valuables were put in the back pocket. Unlike many VB backpacks, the side pockets are big enough for a water bottle. We also used them for umbrella & cell phone. The main compartment held lightweight jackets, an ipad mini, sandwiches/snacks and purchases. The front compartment was good for things we wanted to get quickly like sunglasses and lip gloss. My ONLY complaint is that the straps are uncomfortable for me--5'1" tall. The buckles on the straps hit right at my armpits. A lower buckle placement would have rated this a 5 star winner.
