rated 4.0 of 5 stars

This bag is best for everyday commuting to work and school, light hikes, and short excursions. I'd recommend it for someone who needs a basic pack at a cheap price.


  • Lightweight
  • Durable
  • Few bells and whistles
  • Lots of space


  • Back air-mesh strips

This is a very simple bag with no bells and whistles, which I like, because it means less weight and less that can break. It's lightweight, tough, and looks nice. There are only two compartments, one large one, which is quite spacious and one small front pocket, which is good for a book, wallets, keys, and other simple small items.

I have only had the bag for about three weeks, and the only drawback I notice are the air-mesh strips on the back panel. I'm not so sure how much they really help keep you cool, and when the bag is loaded with stuff, you can feel them a bit. This may bother some people and not others. Personally, I would prefer it with a simple padded back. But then again, this bag isn't made for major expeditions where you need to carry tons of things on your back, so I doubt it will matter too much in the long run.

It's easy to use, the zippers work great, and it has a ton of space for a 22 liter bag. I would say it is well-worth it for the price.
