Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good bag Overall, I love this bag. It was stiff at first but after a month or so the straps and back were more comfortable. The pockets are great, especially the fleece lined sleeves for a computer, tablet, and phone. It is also pretty water resistant as I walked across campus in the pouring rain and all my stuff stayed dry. The only downside is that the water bottle holders are not very durable. I always carry a water bottle and one of the holders started to tear after only having this bag for a few months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for college Bought this for college due to back strain from other backpack. This ACA approved backpack keeps the load nice and snug on my back making it feel much lighter. My back problems have sub-ceded.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I loved the color of the backpack but I was disappointed with how stiff it was and how quickly it tore from the shoulder strap area. I'm not sure if mine was defective but I only had it for 5-6 months and I only carried my macbook, a five subject notebook, cell and laptop chargers and snacks while walking around campus. There was no way it should've torn so quickly and easily.

3. Have someone measure the distance between these two points, following the contours of your spine.
