Our Latest Backpack Reviews

  • Dakine by Hub Sling Pack 15L Posted: Apr 22, 2015 Reviewer: from Southern California Overall: 2 Stars Comfort: 1 Stars Look: 4 Stars
    I loved the camo color, style, and overall look of this sling pack. Unfortunately taking it off and putting it on is extremely awkward. It's only meant to be worn on the left shoulder which limits it's versatility. Wearing it on the right looks and feels weird. IMO any good sling pack must be left AND right shoulder compatible. Returning it.
  • Mosey by Convertible Posted: Apr 22, 2015 Reviewer: from Bellevue, Washington Overall: 1 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 4 Stars
    Beware - the clasp on this bag falls apart! The bag itself is great - it's roomy with lots of compartments/pockets for organization and I love that it can be worn as a backpack, but I've purchased it twice and both times the clasp has come off the bag in less than one year's time of normal wear and tear.
  • Timbuk2 by El Rio Posted: Apr 22, 2015 Reviewer: from La Crosse WI Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    I wanted a backpack for travel that is slightly more "elegant" than my student pack (I'm sixtyish). This one is perfect: good color, holds books, magazines, personal devices etc. I wish it had an outside pocket, but otherwise look forward to using it a lot. Slides under airplane seats easily and is a tough fabric.
