I love the look of this backpack, but there have been a couple of issues. The water bottle pockets are quite small and can only hold a kid-sized bottle. Some of the stitching has already started to unravel after a month of use. Finally, the zippers are sometimes hard to access when they are tucked into the ends.
I'm an 80 year old woman who has never used a backpack before. I am very pleased with this one, my first. It is very capacious and holds all the items I like and need to carry with me, including my two epipens in an insulated hardcase. It is also much easier on my musculo-skeletal system than a shoulder bag, cross-body bag or tote. It is also sturdily built and looks like it will last a long time, just like my prior LeSportsac shoulder bags.
This backpack checks all the boxes and I get compliments daily!
