My purchase of this backpack was for our family vacation use and it was well used. With multiple compartments and easy wear we could fill it with food, light jackets and everything a mom needs. Great purchase and great Zappos experience.

I am very happy with this backpack. It has plenty of pocket locations and sizes. I like how the back of it (the part that rests against your back) is padded and somewhat rigid. It is also nice that it has a laptop sleeve and a smaller tablet sleeve. Quality materials and zippers. The adjustable, sliding straps that go across the chest make it seem a lot lighter when fastened.

Side pocket is good for water bottle. I carry my lunch, notebook, tablet, and purse in the larger compartment. Lots of cool pockets and places to put stuff. I like the Velcro pocket labelled for head phones especially. Very comfy straps. Love it!

Great pockets, things stayed dry when it rained. The key clip on the inside was great, I will never go digging for my keys again! Really like this bag.

Amazing order from Zappos, I love this backpack! Bought for a 6 week trip to SE Asia and it's working great so far, packed lightly though. It's a great quality Backpack for sure. Kelty makes good stuff.

I am using this backpack as a diaper bag for two kids, and I love it! I am able to organize and fit everything we need (diapers, change of clothes and sweatshirts for both kids, potty ring, blanket, coloring books/toys, baby food, bottles and snacks) with more than enough room to spare for my keys, wallet and phone. Also, when loaded up, the bag is still very comfortable to wear. I doubt many people are using this as a diaper bag, but, if so, keep in mind that it may not fit in the storage basket of your stroller, but it's great if you use an umbrella stroller or baby carrier (like me).

I was excited about this backpack. I needed a new carry on sized pack that would also load a laptop and this seemed like the perfect fit. But there are a few issues. Once it arrived I loaded every item that the bag is intended to carry in the pouches labeled for said items. Laptop in the back, table, cell phone, chargers, pens, pencils, sunglasses, etc. Once all was in, that was it. No more room. Well actually that doesn't work because I needed to carry those things and some pajamas, toiletries and a day's worth of clothes. But there's no room left. After all is in you can MAYBE squeeze in something the size of a text book. One single text book. I also don't like some of the structure of the bag. The laptop sits closet to the back which means it's extra padded and hard. This sounds logical but as a woman of some weight, this means the heaviest and hardest part of the bag sits right on my lower back/tailbone and HURTS. Also the labeled compartments are neat but if you use anything bigger than earbuds they won't fit in the headphone pocket, my "battery" (laptop cords?) don't fit in the battery compartment and etc. I would prefer the labels stay off the pockets so I don't feel wrong for fitting other things in there. It looks great though! I liked the construction, the color details and the many pockets. If you're just looking for a laptop bag and don't have a sensitive back, this will do.

This is a fantastic backpack my wife got me for Christmas and I couldn't be happier. Particularly it has a secret stash pocket, a great fleece lined pocket for my cell phone, tons of storage, an organizer as well as a padded spot for a laptop and a tablet! The bag is made of great ripstop nylon materials as well. Can't go wrong here!

The size is just right for my commute. It's smaller than my last pack (a Burton with laptop pocket) and it works great when I'm on the bike. I'm right-handed, so it did take about a week to adjust to the direction of the zippers. I enjoy the organizational pockets in both compartments!

I love this backpack! It holds everything I need it to; I take it to work with me - use it for carrying water bottles, jacket, laptop, etc. I first tried the Patagonia Cascada backpack and the straps on it were very uncomfortable, so I got this one and it's great. I didn't think I'd use the front helmet flap thing, but it's actually come in handy for holding a towel or jacket. And to top it off, the colors are beautiful - purple and turquoise are my favorite.

This has been a great backpack for my son, who is in middle school. It is lightweight, durable, and it offers a lot of pockets. The zippers work well. I just wish it were a little larger, as I don't know if it will be large enough for the load of books in high school. Maybe, they will only use on-line textbooks by then?

I love this backpack. I am in law school and have to carry 3-4 dictionary sized books every day and this backpack fits them comfortably - and then some! I can fit all my books, a few folders, my laptop, and even a blanket in this backpack. It never hurts my shoulders or back either. Oh, and bonus, it's pink. I would highly recommend this backpack.

Not what I thought that it would be. The material is thin to the touch and it is much smaller than I thought it was going to be. I do not think that is worth the price. Definitely paying for the name.

You won't be disappointed. It seems a little expensive but worth every penny. Sometimes you get what you pay for and that is true in this case.

This item is no what it seems. It sits very low to the ground. I am not sure how they call this a basecamp kitchen. Unless you are three feet tall, you would have to be on your knees to cook or use this table. It is more of a side table with understorage. This product is very well made, if it were only twice its height it would be perfect.

I bought two of these for my kids, 3 and 6 years old. They are cute, sturdy, and the right size for them to carry themselves. They are perfect for airplane trips and they also take these to preschool and kindergarten. They hold their lunch, water bottles, a change of clothes and a few books and notebooks. The absolute best part about these backpacks is the zippers - they are flawless. They never get stuck, open and shut easily with one hand. Totally worth the price.

I love the look of this backpack. I got it at the start of my graduate program and it is great. It holds a lot of things, is comfortable, and the chest and waist straps are nice. My only complaint is that it is a little large for my 5'4" female frame. As a guy or a taller girl it probably would not be so bad.

This bag is perfect for my 11 year old. It's light and spacious but only spacious enough for exactly what he needs. So he is no longer carrying around this heavy, backbreaking bag. It's cool, durable and he gets compliments on it all the time! Love it!

This backpack is perfect for my 3 year old. She is of average height. It looked so small in my hands but once I put it on her it looked on the large end of perfect. It was important for me that she have an appropriately size pack so she can manage it all by herself, which she can do with this one even when fully loaded. It is extremely lightweight. It doesn't extend below her bottom so she has complete mobility and can run and climb with it on. The orange color is bright and happy, it is easy to identify, and it doesn't have distracting patterns or characters. The main compartment: The back is well padded, keeping from objects carried from poking the wearer and making it very comfortable. The padding also gives the pack structure which makes it easier to load. For school, my daughter has a flexible folder that fits in but the upper corners have to bend a bit. Also, she takes a lunch box (4.75" H x 6.75" W x 9.5" L) that can fit snugly in leaving space below (because the bottom is angled (for something like small stuffed animal) and above like a jacket or change of clothes or her cot sheets. The front pocket is is a useful size (packs a beanie baby sized toy) but we haven't used it much. I like that it doesn't extend out of the backpack, but inward, keeping the silhouette sleek and it wont sag or catch on anything. The side pockets are great. A water bottle is held securely and it is the perfect spot to wrangle mittens or a hat. The elastic is tight enough to keep a full bottle in but flexible enough for little hands to easily access. The zippers are top-notch. My little one has no problem opening or closing them herself, even when packed full. Zipper quality was one of the top considerations for me in spending a little more on a backpack for pre-school. Also, for hiking it will be great. She can carry her own load. The size is perfect because it won't be overloaded with too much and it isn't saggy and loose which can become very uncomfortable. The wide, padded shoulder straps synch nice and short so the pack doesn't swing about on shoulders, again keeping the wearer comfortable. The bright orange keeps her easy to identify from behind, whether she is ahead on the trail.

I have only had this pack for four days and I have already received many compliments. I will continue to use this bag daily as I commute to and from work. It is smaller than your average backpack, but can hold everything that I need and more. The organizational pockets inside each compartment are great. Although there is a slight drawback that you cannot reach into the bag quickly while it is still slung over one shoulder. I love this bag, so I will have to adapt.
