Rated 5 out of 5 by squarefoot Love the laptop sleeve
Pleasantly surprised to discover this bag comes with a laptop sleeve. It's a pretty basic backpack otherwise. Extremely well-made. Love the red and white striped lining on the inside. The actual color was a bit more lime and brighter than the photo, but I love it regardless.

Rated 4 out of 5 by rander Why These Straps?
I LOVE this backpack. HOWEVER: In the summer, I tend to use a backpack in place of a purse. This pack would be the perfect choice, if it weren't for the very utilitarian straps, typically found on a child's school backpack. You could have made it more adult appropriate by fancying up the straps i.e. using, instead, finished leather straps, perhaps even in a fun color. Regretfully, almost perfect.

Rated 3 out of 5 by petraH can recommend but with caveats
PROs -- padded straps, compact size, computer/tablet pocket, style (fantastic color, nice red/white pinstriped lining)
CONs -- no inner pockets for phone/wallet, no inner hooks/loops for keys
HIT/MISS -- drawstring opening (no zipper), outer strap has magnet closure (buckle is decorative), narrow depth (5" is less accommodating than expected)
COMMENT -- while i'm happy with this pack (love the color!!), i wish the product description was more accurate. the laptop pocket is fantastic (not specifically mentioned), but i had expected "handy compartments" to mean the standard small pockets for wallets, phones, etc. had i realized it lacked these, i might not have bought the bag. i wanted a new pack for weekend getaways, but this isn't what i'd call a "weekender" bag unless you can pack really lightly and don't mind fishing around the bottom for lost lip balm or keys.
