I needed a clear backpack asap for a festival. I read the reviews and purchased anyway....mistake. It serves its purpose if you need a clear bag, but be prepared for frustration. The zipper on the main compartment always...really....always gets stuck on the fabric. There is only one zipper so in order to open and close the bag you always have to go from one end to the other. I like a bag with 2 so that you can have the zippers meet in the middle and if one side did get stuck at least you'd still have another one to open. So, when this one gets stuck you have no choice but to fix it right away......MAJOR pain. The two small side pockets that you would assume could hold a water bottle are just way too small.
So disappointed! These straps are horrible and cheaply made. After using this backpack for a total of 9 hours one strap completely broke and the other was ripped/separating. Otherwise, the clear backpack portion is made well. Good luck if you plan on using this for a festival or concert... it might not last.
My review is mostly based on the aesthetic appeal of this backpack. I love it! It is my new favorite bag. I'm hoping it will withstand many uses since I've only had it for a couple weeks. My 13in laptop fits comfortably (there isn't a protective laptop sleeve just in case anyone was wondering). I usually only carry a few light items (e.g., books, notebooks, pencil pouch), but it is sturdy and fits quite a bit. The quality appears good.
