    I got this bag in the light gray color so it could go with a variety of colors and clothing styles. I first tried it out at an outdoor festival where we were expecting rain. This little bag performed like a champ! The space of this bag is actually pretty misleading - you can fit A TON of stuff in it! I had a full sized wallet and collapsible umbrella in the interior sleeve but felt no weird bulging from them against my back. In the general interior I also had a bottle of spray sunscreen, my husband's wallet, my point-and-shoot digital camera in its case, and a pack of gum. I could easily have fit a bottle of water and some small souvenirs in there if I had chosen to. The outer straps were also a great way to keep my jacket secured but within very easy reach. I think the best surprise about this bag was how comfortable it was. I was fully expecting my shoulder to get tired but there was no discomfort or feeling of unbalance even after several hours of walking and swinging it around to access it. I did not use the sternum strap during the outdoor event but it felt very comfortable and easy to adjust when I played with it out of the box. And just for clarity: there is a tiny little pocket where you can tuck the strap away if you don't want to use it and don't want it flying all over the place. I really cannot recommend this bag enough. If you are looking for a great day pack that can hold all of your necessities within easy reach and not tire you out, go ahead and order one. I sense some great adventures in store with this bag!
  • Sakroots by Sakroots Artist Circle Flap Backpack Posted: Jul 27, 2014 Reviewer: Liz from NYC Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    I am in love with this bag. I bought it in the Neon One World style. I use it for work and I love how much it can store! I can fit my t-shirt, sweater, a couple books, a make up bag, and still have plenty of space left over. I even used it to go grocery shopping, and fit about 4 containers of salad greens. It's very comfortable, the design is beautiful, the side zipper comes in handy! Perfect bag for an over night stay, a shopping trip, carrying bulky items. Will not disappoint.
  • Dakine by Cosmo 6.5L Posted: Jul 26, 2014 Reviewer: from Oregon Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    This was perfect for taking to the airport for me because I tend to over pack my largest purse and my carry-on to where I am hurting and hauling around bags that are too heavy. So this little pack was my purse and small enough that even when stuffed it is not too heavy and it is evenly distributed on my shoulders. I also took a rolling carry on this time. No pain on my shoulders yahoo! There is a bunch of zippers and organizing slots in this pack, too.
