It is not very big, good for going to a meeting or something. A little small for an overnight bag for business trips. Pretty well built, definately good for the price.
However, the entire bag seems very durable. LOVE! The size is perfect and I am able to fit everything I need. I already want another in a different color :). I'm interested to see how long the straps last since those are the first to go.
I got this bag because my previous backpack looked like it belonged to a 12 year old. Seriously, it was rainbow colored and had little flowers on it. It did not say, "this bag belongs to a grown 34 year old woman, don't mistake me for a lost child. " This backpack however is sleek, simple, light weight, and beautiful in its simplicity of putting things in the bag, and taking stuff out of the bag. It does what a bag should do; hold all your hopes and dreams and gives you a bit of sanity. I respect this backpack, I cherish it, and I would be sad to lose it on an airplane. P. S. I bought the rainbow colored bag at Target because it was cheap. There, I said it.
Great bag! Perfect size, LOVE the wide-mouth opening and bright color inside so I can see and reach everything. I had to ditch my leather briefcase due to back problems. I expect more will too. This is light weight and the purse-style handle adds flexibility. I already have one co-worker who bought one.
I attend school on the weekends so the is great, and pretty roomy as well. It's just the right size, not too bulky and it suits my needs perfectly.
