I'm never a handbag kinda gal. I carry too much things when I'm out of the house: personal organiser, phone, a book, wallet, travel pass, a bottle of water, couple of snack, etc. I was attract to the stylish yet casual looking bag and the affordable price, and it did not disappoint!
I like the padded shoulder straps,; lighweight but strong canvas material; and the 3 exterier pocket (for pens, map, snacks, keys) with a small zip interier compartment (for a wallet / mobile phone).
Although it is a smallish bag, but it is big enough to fit a couple of textbooks (or music scores in my case) which is handy for the ligher days @ college. For busier days I would use a backpack with back padding for the heavier books. It is spacious enough for a day out and light travelling.
I find this backpack better value for money than similar ones I find on the high street such as Topshop (who normally charges a higher price!)
