Favorite backpack ever!
So, I actually got this backpack in the Blue Melon color, but since its sold out I'll leave a review here.
I am absolutely obsessed with this backpack. I bought it for school and it was exactly the backpack I was looking for. The water bottle pouches are roomy enough for a standard size nalgene, the smaller compartment is the perfect size to hold all my school needs. I really appreciate that the inside has the laptop sleeve AND a small zipper compartment. It keeps everything so well organized. And it just so happens to be the perfect size to hold a standard binder. It is super roomy! Living in Portland, the water resistant fabric was super important. I'm happy to report that it holds up very well on even our rainiest days! I only wish the zippers were water tight, but then they probably couldn't be in such cute colors.
The only thing I would actually change is adding a chest strap for the shoulder straps. The straps are set pretty wide, which makes sense to fit an assortment of bodies. But having more narrow shoulders means that it feels like the straps are constantly slipping off. Maybe future editions can include a chest strap?! All in all though, this is literally the perfect backpack.
