    This bag is just ok. I’m going to put my complaints first in case the company reads them. For reference, I’m primarily using it as a backpack.
    1. The zippers keep breaking. In other words, the zipper teeth split open even when they should be closed. Then you have to backtrack the zipper and hope it doesn’t get stuck. I’ve been using this bag for one week, and the main compartment zipper has broken 3 or 4 times. I am often carrying my laptop, so I’m very careful with the bag. The rest of my complaints are primarily stylistic, but having zippers that break frequently brings my rating down 2 stars already.
    2. The shoulder strap to use it as a messenger bag is cheap-looking. I would not use it this way unless I was carrying very little in the bag.
    3. There is no water bottle holder. I thought I could live without a water bottle holder on my backpack, but I regret that decision. It would be much better if it had one (or two – one on the long side and one on the short side).
    4. The outside compartments have the large one placed on top and the small one on the bottom, which can make the backpack oddly top-heavy.
    5. The interior pocket design is bizarre. There’s a giant pocket on the front side interior that always gets in the way when trying to put a notebook or book inside. It would be preferable if there were simply small pockets there.

    On the plus side, the bag looks clean and professional (in all black), the padding for your laptop is good, and the ability to use it as a backpack or briefcase or messenger bag is awesome. I’ll keep using the bag, but I wouldn’t buy from this company again.

    Edit: After using the bag for over a month, the zippers continue to break randomly, and I am constantly frustrated by the pocket placements. This bag is definitely not for regular use as a backpack. I would not recommend this for a student.

    This bag should get 4 to 5 stars, but the zipper is absolutely horrendous. It constantly comes open in the sections that are zipped. I like being able to carry it with the handles or backpack, but I’m afraid I’m going to start losing items out of the bag since the zipped sections won’t hold.
