  • Patagonia by Black Hole Pack 25L Posted: Apr 16, 2015 Reviewer: Marissa S from Newark, DE Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    Awesome backpack! I am a grad student and I use this bag for school. It can hold everything I need for a long day on campus and the entire thing is waterproof (great for biking!). It looks from images like the top pocket is not waterproof, but it is lined on the inside with the same plasticy material.
  • Patagonia by Kids Refugio Pack 15L Posted: Apr 15, 2015 Reviewer: from Richmond, VA Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    Perfect bag for school! It's simple with not a lot of pockets and zippers and very durable. Perfect size to last my son through many years.
  • Sherpani by Access Backpack Posted: Apr 15, 2015 Reviewer: from 7 Cities, VA Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    Very durable, stylish, and comfortable. I've had my Sherpani for almost 2 years now. I get compliments on it all the time! And I love that it's unique - in those 2 years, I've only ran into one other person that has had the exact same bag. For living in as large of an area as I do, in addition to regular trips to DC, Philadelphia, NYC, etc... that says a lot. As a mom of 2, I've stuffed it full as could be before, what with putting water bottles, books, cameras, and snacks during day trips, in addition to using it as an every day purse. It's held up extremely well - it almost looks as good as the day I first got it. Love Sherpani & love that Zappos made it so easy to get.
