I have had this little gem for over 7 years now and have mountain biked, hiked, motorcycled, been a tourist, a spectator, and just schlepped to n' fro work with it. It's the go to pack because it's solid, durable, and small but packs a lot for its size. What allows this bag to be so perfect is that front zip section. Deceptively small, it has a key hook inside a zipped mesh pocket and lip balm/pencil/pen as well as cell/sunglasses slots, with a 3rd pocket for wallet, papers and tickets and other things you want instant access to. The main pocket double zipper helps when motorcycle riding because they need to both be at the bottom to prevent it opening a high speeds (guess how I know that). Roomy enough for a slim pair of shoes like Sambas, Chuck Taylors, or flip flops plus a tank top, shorts, and your work out log, iPod, and bike locks and saddle once you arrive (in DC anyway). Only now, after years of cramming Whole Foods groceries, work stuff, travel gear, electronics, and dog supplies, has the front portion pulled away from the bag at the seam. I will sew it though, because these colors offered now are not my thing (mine is solid black). Buy it and you'll see how soon it replaces every bag/purse you own.

I was disappointed when I received my back pack. I was going in to high school and this was fit for a kindergartner.

I bought this backpack to use as my purse while on vacation. It's comfortable. It has a lot of compartments and pretty spaceous for a small backpack. I could fit my water bottle, camera, sunblock and all my necessities for the day out. I definitely would recommend this product.

I adore this backpack. It is small, but that's exactly why I bought it. I have a 6-month-old baby I'm carrying everywhere and purse straps just cause extra hassle. I love having a petite backpack that holds the contents of my purse so that I can have my hands and arms free to do other things. Super adorable and I'm so glad I bought it.

I purchased a Dakine Cosmo mini backpack for my daughter and she loves it. It came very quickly and had no problems in purchasing it. So far so good on construction. Would recommend this website and this product! Same thing in the store was more expensive.

Very cute little backpack that you could take anywhere as a purse or on a daytrip where you didn't want a lot to load you down. There's plenty of room for an extra shirt, sunscreen, water bottle, and various things that you would keep in your purse. I'm planning on taking it with me as my day bag on an upcoming trip.

This has become my everyday bag. It's small enough and flat enough not to be cumbersome but has enough space to fit wallet, checkbook, Kindle, iPod, and keys at least. Definitely recommend it!

I was shopping for a small backpack to take along on a Disney trip in a few weeks, and I found this one. I loved it right away as soon as I opened the package! It has a lot of pockets, and fit all my stuff well. I'm sure it will make a great travel companion! I also love the color, ordered the sunset. Very bright and cheery! Zappos also rocks, had this to me overnight!

I got this for my daughter and she LOVES it. She gets compliments all the time. She really gets a lot of use out of it, all the little pockets, she stores all her 'stuff' in them. Really good quality too.

The pattern on this bag is pretty. It's very tiny, smaller than other day packs I have owned. The inside pastel pattern is lovely. It holds my color Nook, long wallet, iPod classic, hand sanitizer, a few pens, and a small cell phone. Another reviewer mentioned carrying her shoes in it. Don't buy this expecting to carry your shoes in it, unless you have really small feet. I wear a size 6 and my shoes wont fit. Nor can it fit groceries. But if you want a small pack for maybe cycling, or as a gift for a young girl, then it's a good buy.

Brands I'd also recommend: keen, crumpler

I just received my cosmo in tartan. Very cute mini backpack. I love the organization on the front pocket. The main compartment can fit quite a bit for the size of the bag. This is no "book" backpack, but I bought it to use when taking my 5 year old and 2 year old to the zoo. I can fit a couple diapers, soft wipes case, a change of clothes, some snacks/juice boxes, and my person items. I don't like to haul around a heavy diaper bag. This seems to work well. I do wish it had drink pockets on the sides. Also, the bag I got didn't have the nicely matched up print on the front that you see in the stock photo. Overall, I am pleased. Good price.

This is really cute. I purchased it for crowded events like concerts, festivals and other days where I don't like having a purse take up extra space at my side in that regard this bag is an a+ for everyday usage it gets a bit cluttered with everything ending up in a big mess at the bottom of the big zipper section since there are not really pockets.

I've used these as my main 'purse' for 5 years! I can carry a large magazine (rolled lengthwise) or a full-size hardback book, without any discomfort. Only complaint is the smaller zippered pocket (for small items) is within the outside section, leading to bulk at that side (the patterned side you see in photo) - so, needs better organizer pockets. Comfortable, perfect size for everyday. In crowded travel situations, could be vulnerable to pickpockets.

I loved the bag itself, but it was way to small for me to use as a purse. I am a mother of 2 with a 1 year old niece that I take care of during the day and there is not enough room in this bag for me. I gave it to my 5 year old so there was no loss. I wouldn't recommend this bag if you are looking for a lot of room to store things.

Great small bag. Used it for travel. Was big enough for my normal purse stuff plus a water bottle and camera. Lots of pockets to keep things organized. Only drawback was that the shoulder straps wore on my arms a bit (that could be because I wore a tank top every day) though.

I just received this little backpack - it's exactly what I was looking for. I have sloping shoulders, so it's impossible to keep a 'shoulder-bag strap' on me without hunching that shoulder up (thereby resulting in a nice headache after more than 1 hour). I've got several 'cross-body' bags, but for travel & wearing to work here in Aspen I wanted a mini-backpack which hangs from both of my shoulders and out of the way; I'm not doing a 6-hour day hike, or climbing a 14,000-foot mountain, so I don't want or need the usual day-pack size. I also love all the colors and patterns available - I had a hard time choosing one, but finally went with the purple 'lacey' design, which has purple-and-white zebra stripes on the inside. I'll probably purchase a lighter-color pattern also, since these little packs are definitely machine washable/dryable (made out of nylon, not cotton quilting). Important nore: The straps on this Dakine pack are long enough for adult women! I looked everywhere on the internet, & nowhere was it mentioned how long the straps are, so here you go: they can be adjusted to a maximum length of 31" as measured from the top of the strap to where it's attached at the bottom, plenty long enough for even this plus-sized gal (I even have 2.5 "extra" inches of strap when I adjust them to the length perfect for me.) I had bought a 'girls' backpack once before, but was disappointed because the strap-length was really designed for girl-size bodies, not women.

Very cute but very small. I was looking for a small pack to use on a trip instead of a purse, but it was to small for what I needed to put inside.
