If you're looking for a simple backpack, that is, not a large mountain backpack, then this will be great. I've had the blue/grey/black one for probably a year now and it hasn't disappointing me yet. I'm a student so I typically have a couple books, a couple notepads, and there is a separate (cushioned) compartment within the large pocket to put your laptop in. I like the little pocket design for the phone, but it's not android phone friendly (made for small phones). All in all, it's perfect for me.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
The Polyester material is strong and durable. Depending on the day to day stress that you will be using the bag for, you should get a few years out of it. With The multiple embroidered branded logos on the bag and the colors chosen this bag has a great look as well!
