I bought this bag as my previous rucksack was too small for my laptop and was breaking. This one is great, looks good and is very roomy - fits in my laptop, 2 A4 size books, plus lunchbox, charger etc.
However, the shoulder straps are too long, even on the shortest setting as I prefer to have backpacks resting on my back not on my bum! - I am also quite tall so was surprised this was the case.
Also, once on the shortest setting it won't stay there, but drifts longer throughout the day. The adjusters (whatever they are actually called) don't seem to fit properly.
Also one of the buckles on the front strap is incorrectly sized too so the middle bar doesn't rest on the surround but slips between (hmm tricky to describe) and the buckle comes undone. Am worried I will soon lose the part with the magnet attached.
Overall though, the bag looks like quality and seems to be sturdy (I have had it ~2 months now, using daily and heavily loading it) with no strain showing as of yet. Just some irritating details!
