PROS: Great design, completely unbranded. Nylon is pretty durable, plenty of pockets of decent sizes. One big security strap that runs from the top of the bag and creates a Y with a bottom strap good for securing load. Shoulder straps adjustable from both the top and bottom of the bag.
CONS: Since shoulder pads float between to adjustable straps (one at the top and one at the bottom), it may be uncomfortable for those used to having the shoulder pad/strap sewn into the top of the bag. Zippers are strong, but are a bit stiff to close/open. Main compartment, though fairly spacious, not as big as I expected given the dimensions.
FYI - Main compartment fits 15" laptop in it's case fairly snuggly, but corners of the laptop touch the perimeter of the bag.
OVERALL: Probably not your best choice for a school bag, but a stylish and handy bag for a day out in the city. Will definitely use for school on days I don't need to carry a lot of books, or as a bag to ride with.
