Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is exactly what I wanted. This pack is lightweight, sturdy, can carry my Mac in the front pocket, and carry everything in one pack!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Love Cut Short Great in concept and wonderful product for not XS sized individuals. I really wanted a professional looking pack that was waterproof for rainy days riding into work. I feel like this product would have done wonderfully, minus the fact that it comes as one size, which is enormous on my smaller frame, making it impossible to even ride a bike with it. I ordered the red -which is a cool color !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Waterproof i love this pack it is 100% waterproof, it has enough room to hold all of my college books and my laptop around, and it is very nice to wear while on my bike. i do have a problem opening the main compartment sometimes because the zipper will catch parts of the pack so just put your finger over the zipper to avoid this problem. i have owned the backpack for about 4 months now and it has not shown any sign of wear even though i abuse this pack daily. if your looking for a good waterproof backpack then this is the one i would go with.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Clasp hard to open I ultimately returned this item because the clasp was too hard for me to open and close. I wanted to use it as an alternative work backback, but I'm in and out of my current bag constantly, and I found that the clasp was a deal breaker. Too bad, though, because the bag itself is great. Fix the clasp and I might try it again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It Works... I bought this backpack for the intended use of commuting to work with it. Short road rides to and from the office (6 miles each way). It looks clean and professional enough to wear into work and the waterproofing is ideal for the PNW weather that is so incredibly unpredictable. I read reviews before buying and bypassed some of the comments others made with the thought "Meh, maybe it was just them being picky." Some reviews state that the zippers to the main compartment get caught on the fabric. This is in fact very true. Getting in and out of the main compartment requires two hands. Taped seams would have been a better design. The fact that it doesn't have a place for your water bottle is fine by me since I have a cage on my bike but I could see how that could be a downside for others when they're off their bike. The design is good for the general idea and use of the pack, accessing the insides is a bit of a pain. Despite the complaints, the pack is comfortable and the material is of a good quality. Have commuted in light rain with it and everything stayed dry inside.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor zipper placements I really really wanted to like this bag. However, the lack of "overflap" on the zippers makes this bag not as waterproof as I need. Everything in the top fold over pocket and side pocket gets wet with regular Philly spring rain. Even on a 20 minute walk in drizzle, the inside of the laptop pocket gets wet. Sadness. I will need to buy a different bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Bag! I've had this bag for a few weeks now and I love it. It's a very nice bag to commute with. I got my bag to keep my camera safe in the rain and it has done a great job! Only complaint about the bag is that the zipper likes to catch, which isn't a huge deal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features but a couple areas for improvement I have been using this bag for a little over six months now as my main bag for getting my gear to and from work. There are some great features of the bag: separate compartments for your laptop and gear, plenty of extra pockets for organizing those loose items, contrasting inside color looks great and makes it easy to find things, and the bag protects my laptop from the elements. Unfortunately, two things really could use improvement and are why I only gave it an average function rating. First, the zipper to the main compartment often gets caught on the overlapping material that covers the zipper. A bit troublesome when you are trying to get into the bag or close it up. Second, the padding for the laptop compartment has gaps between where the panels join. So, your laptop is not completely protected on the edges. If they fixed those two issues this honestly would be the perfect bag for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Commuter Bag Around I have gone through a lot of bags. This however is truly where form meets function. I have nothing negative to say about it. It contours great to the fit of my back, allows for ample space for misc. gear or day to day supplies like lunch, jackets, homework, work work and lets not forget the key feature of the waterproof front laptop pocket! Really! This thing is indestructible! No longer will I waste money on cheaper bike specific bags. (sorry Chrome bags)
