Rated 5 out of 5 by from got so many compliments! i got this bag a few months ago for school days i need to carry my laptop. so far it's been holding up quite nicely. i especially love the blue/burgundy color combo, it's my favorite color combo for the fall/winter time. So the bag goes with a lot of navy color and wine color items i got. it is very light weight and very well made also. recommend !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and compfy I bought this back pack to use for schlepping my computer from home to work and it's perfect. I don't feel like my back is strained and its very comfortable on my shoulders. Bike messenger bags are usually ugly but I'm not embarrassed to use this as my everyday bag, which I do. I have the black and white polka dot. I think its the best money I've ever spent on a bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and practical I got this bag in the polka dot pattern and it's perfect! Sometimes I feel a bit like I'm still in high school when I use my backpack but this one solves that problem. It has a "mature" polka dot and the gold zippers add a special touch. There are also small bits of purple leather on the zipper pulls and on one of the straps! It's super practical with the laptop pocket and the little hook for your keys. Enough pockets to divide all my things without having so many that things get lost. A worthwhile purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bag!!! Want to buy another for back-up I love this bag! It is a little smaller than a regular Jansport style bag. It feels very durable. The colors and style details are amazing (not shown is the inside candy stripe interior and key ring holder in front zip pocket). There is a laptop pocket inside main pouch. This bag is great for biking around Manhattan which is what I bought it for (as well as a stylish everyday bag). The fabric is a little scratchy but the quality feels nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Colors I bought the coral & red version of this backpack last year. I loved the colors and it fit everything I needed for school. I've also gotten tons of compliments on it. My only complaint is that it is a bit on the small side compared to other backpacks that I have used before. Because the threading on the front of my backpack has started to come apart a bit (to be fair, I am a bit rough with my backpacks), I decided to get this backpack again, but in the blue & yellow. This one's colors are also adorable (albeit not as cute as the coral & red in my opinion). The cornflower blue is totally true to the color in the picture and the yellow is very yellow. I can't wait to use it when school starts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, but.... I love this backpack. I got it in Mint & Orange, but they need to make it bigger. My 15" MacBook Pro fits, but it's a super tight squeeze and the corners of my laptop bulge out the bag. That's without a sleeve :( So I'll be returning it. I wish they made them big enough for 15" Laptops.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very stylish I ordered this for middle school daughter because we fell in love with the polka dots. It was simply stylish and not garish like many of the backpacks out there. The inside was beautiful with red and white pinstripes which made opening it fun. Sadly we had to return it because it was too small for the amout of books my daughter has to carry and it had no water bottle holder which was a must have for us. I was also a bit leary of the zippers. They only went one way and kind of stuck when using. So close to perfect...
