Top critical review
Stylish but not functional for a student in year 12.
on 16 June 2017
(bag purchased in colour black/black)
I purchased this bag for school, to carry a lever arch file, 2 textbooks and 3 notebooks, as my previous bag is starting to fall apart from use. I was surprised to find that I could only fit my lever arch file inside, I believe this is due to the separator between the laptop compartment and the rest of the bag, this separator has very thick padding, which isn't a bad thing, however the padding is not replicated on the other side of the laptop compartment (the back of the bag). I also noticed that one shoulder strap was significantly more padded than the other, making the bag feel uneven on my shoulders, this is probably just a manufacturing error but the perfectionist in me is very disappointed in this lack of attention to detail.
Design-wise, this is a stylish bag made with good material, the drawstring closure and zips are smooth, and the stitching seems strong, however I haven't used this bag for any period of time as I returned it, so I cannot say how it holds up with everyday use. I also really liked the silver buckles as an accent to an all black bag. I don't feel I can say much about speed of shipping as I used free one-day delivery with Prime.
Overall, I wasn't pleased with this item and returned it as it didn't fulfil my needs like I believed it would, based on the description and other reviews.
