Our Latest Backpack Reviews

  • JanSport by Agave Posted: Jan 26, 2015 Reviewer: from TX Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    I have an older version of this backpack that I bought three years ago, and it's been through about as much abuse as one can inflict on a backpack used for school, work, and travel. This backpack simply does not die. It's made from very lightweight materials, but don't let that fool you into thinking it's not strong or durable. It's the only backpack I've ever owned that's still roomy despite all the pockets, and also comfortable to wear. The straps are thickly padded and just glide onto your shoulders without scraping your arms. Will definitely buy again!
  • Samsonite by Tectonic Large Laptop Backpack Posted: Jan 26, 2015 Reviewer: Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    Great bag in every way! High quality zippers, and easy-to-use zippers and lots of organization pockets.
  • Samsonite by Xenon 2 Backpack - PFT/TSA Posted: Jan 24, 2015 Reviewer: j g from portland oregon Overall: 4 Stars Comfort: 3 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    I'm big and broad enough that the straps barely extend enough to be comfortable. The bag and all of it's pockets are also somewhat stiff, but I suspect may loosen up with time. So many compartments! I kind of wish the largest one expanded a little more.
