Lighten Up Large Backpack in Blue Bayou Great bag, extremely well made, organization plus! Love the two main compartments. I actually purchased two, as Vera sells out on these. Quality! Black Vera Logo Fabric Lined Interior has all seams covered. Looks like is it made to last years. I just love the colors, reminds me of Hawaii! Thank you Vera, Ruth C. August 10, 2014
Senior in High School = College I bought this backpack in Ziggy Zinnia, I thought it was going to be TOO BIG, but no it is perfect for a student serious about education and it amazes me how many things you can fit inside this backpack. I am a small girl if that helps. I can fit a lot in my backpack but I choose not to because I don't want to stuff it, the material is pretty good just don't over-estimate it. The material can rip but is sturdy. The third zipper toward the back can fit my 15" macbook pro. And I have a Sport Large Bobble water bottle in the side of the bag, and it is stretchable and goes pretty deep. The bottle fits inside perfectly and covers the bottle till the opening of my bottle. The second zipper from front to back i could fit a make-up pouch including small touch-ups and pencil pouch including over 15 pens. The straps are very sturdy and comfortable, it makes you feel like you have about nothing in your bag. The only thing I do not like about the backpack is when on-the-go and hurrying to put my bag on my hand sometimes get stuck in the strap and I always twist it, but once it is on my back it easily fixable. I love this backpack and will give a review again after a year or so! September 13, 2014
Heavy Duty This backpack is amazing. I am a freshman in high school and we already have a bunch of school supplies we need to carry. My school does a separate schedule where 4 classes are on 1 day and the other 4 are on another day. Here are a list of things it can hold for each day (we have an A day B day schedule): A DAY 1 2in binder 2 1.5in binder 2 five subject notebooks 1 textbook 1 expandable folder 1 school agenda 1 book 1 pencil case B DAY 1 2in binder 2 or 3 1.5in binder 1 expandable folder 1 composition notebook 1 school agenda 1 book 1 pencil case EXTRAS 1 cosmetic bag umbrella water bottle keys gum/mints eyeglass case calculator phone This backpack can hold a lot. I believe it is better than Jansport because I don't feel a lot of heavy weight on my shoulders and my backpack doesn't look humongous. The backpack itself and the straps are also very sturdy and strong. I think this backpack will last me all throughout high school. I know this backpack will stay clean because my high school floors are not dirty and are surprisingly very clean and shiny. I would definitely recommend this backpack to anyone that has lots of stuff to carry. The only thing I have to say is (which isn't bad) is that if you get Ink Blue, the white on it is not actually white, it is more of a light cream color. Thank you for reading this review.
