"One of the most thoughtfully designed backpacks I've ever owned"
The straps are cushy and soft and comfortable to wear. The sunglasses pocket at the top is good for anything you want to carry that's fragile -- I carry my ipod, camera, and sunglasses in there (which is a slightly tight fit but it does fit). The back of the main pack is padded so that if you're carrying pencils or anything in there, it won't jab you in the back. All the little pockets and whatnot are useful for finding things. The main compartment holds my netbook, two changes of clothes and more. I get complimented all the time on how cute it is, and even though after fairly intensive use it still looks almost new.
"Fits my 15" Macbook Pro and my frame (5'4)"
I have tried many backpacks trying to find one that stays slim while holding my laptop (15" Macbook Pro). I love Dakine bags as they are durable. I have tried a few other ones which were great in style but a bit too long for my torso. This bag is perfect!
I bought this for school, it looks really small but once I got it all my books fit. Mine is the plaid pattern with teal, yellow, and gray. It has a sunglass pocket at the top with soft fuzzy material inside! It has a slot for a lap top in the large zip pocket, and the front zip pocket is insulated!! I always get complements at school and work, everyone loves this backpack!!!
