It's a nice looking bag that falls short in its design.

It's a nice looking bag that falls short in its design. By adding too many compartments, they've lost valuable space. I liked the construction, but not the layout.

When I saw you reviewing a Jansport, my first thought was, "Jansport?" You answered a number of my questions. Nice review, Arson!

Too bad its function isn't as good as its looks. Nice video review.
