I got a Kipling backpack because I've seen them and they seemed really durable and great, and my old backpack that I got online was falling apart after 2 months. So I thought Kipling would be a reliable backpack to buy online, and they look really great. Then I was reading the reviews, and I got confused. Half of them say it's a great backpack and it's really durable, and the other half said it was a piece of crap that fell apart really soon. So I was kind of nervous to buy it. I got the Espresso color from Amazon.com. I noticed that there were 2 different sellers for the backpacks, one of them was LuggageXpert and the other was Amazon, so I figured probably one of them was a bad seller and the other was good. Anyway, my backpack got here yesterday and it was in new condition and packaged really well. It had all new tags from Kipling, and inside one of the pockets was a card that said it had a 1 year warranty. I think that still applies even though I got it from Amazon instead of Kipling, but either way that shows that it should last at least a year. I've only used it for one day, and so far it seems durable and like it will last a really long time. I'll write another review if it falls apart, but I don't think it will. Also, it looks really big in the picture, and I didn't really like that because I don't have too many school books and I didn't want to have a half empty backpack. But it really is a lot smaller inside than it looks. I'm not sure if this is a bad thing or a good thing, but to me it's good. It's the perfect size for me. :) It also has more pockets than you can really see in the pictures. In the main pouch there's the laptop protection, which is a pouch of cushioned material with an elastic velcro strap, and there's another cushioned pouch on the other side. Then in the medium pouch there's a smaller zippered pouch. And then there's the smallest pouch, which is actually pretty deep and can fit more than it seems, and there's the pouch on top by the handle and one on the right side, although these are pretty shallow and can't fit much. All in all, I'm really really happy with the product, and would recommend that other people get it too. :)

I was cleaning out my backpack a couple days ago and I realized I couldn't find my review on Amazon for this product. Well, what I can say is that this is an amazing bag! It has just the right amount of padding on the straps to make it easy on your shoulders. There are enough pockets and compartments to keep all your stuff organized. The construction is top notch - I bought this backpack on September 2011, it's nearly August 2012, and I can't find a stitch out of place.

I'm very, very rough on my backpacks. This was used every day as I lugged around heavy textbooks, my laptop, and sometimes even changes of clothing. I took it to the airport as my carry-on bag and it went through security with no problem. I'm used to backpacks lasting me a year at most in highschool...but as a rising sophomore, I see that this is going to last WAY longer! Overall, I'm very pleased.

A word of warning, though: "laptop protection" on this bag is only on the sides...NOT on the bottom of the bag. As in, there is no extra padding where your bag will come in contact with desks/the floor. Since I originally didn't realize this, my laptop got a bit scuffed up on the sides from setting my backpack down too quickly. However, that isn't too much of a drawback. My 16in screen laptop fits perfectly and that can't be said of many backpacks, so I'm very happy with it despite the lack of bottom protection.

This bag is perfect for a teacher who needs to carry a lot of things every day. Comfortable, with a relatively big space and the color is just amazing. The only problem is, that there is a very limited space for the laptop, I have a 14 inch one and it's just perfect. I am very happy with this bag!!!

I got it yesterday, and I love this bag! I'm a collge student, so I needed a bag that I could put a lot of stuff in. It's large inside, but it doensn't look bulky when you wear it.

I love Kipling products so when I bought my 13" macbook pro I knew I had to get this backpack! I just received it 2 days ago and I love the bag. It fits my laptop perfectly, if it was bigger than a 15" laptop I would say it wouldn't fit! I mean it would fit in the slot, but the strap would not Velcro over the laptop, which I am guessing it might not even be necessary. The bag is extremely light weight and comes in many colors. Mine is espresso and my gorilla's name is Danny. This bag has ample space and lots of pockets to meet every ones needs. There is probably nothing negative I could say about this bag- I just love it!

I love the bag, it has many compartments. I love the fact that there's a place for my ipod as well as my phone. Kipling is known for its durability and practicality. It fits my vaio laptop and there's room for books and the cable. Its a little big if u're looking for smthg small, and if you tend to fill the bag, it'll get heavy easily...b/c it just has lots of roooooooom!!
I recommend.

So if you read the negative reviews 4 of them are the same reviews posted on different dates, skewing the results. We received ours today and because of the other reviews checked for authenticity. Seems to be the real deal! My kid love them. If we find any faults after this school year we will write a new review. Especially love how lightweight the backpacks are.

Best back pack ever! Lots of space! Not for Laptop backpack. Even though they have laptop protection, very thin. Perfect for college books! Durable zipper.Shoulder pad is not think but enough. Comfortable when you wear it.

I had a blue backpack before and it was very durable.I bought Kipling Seoul just for change. It actually didn't disappoint me at all.
First, the shipping was amazing (I bought it in J&R Music and Computer World),I got it the next day. To be honest, I was like "WTH" when I first saw it. It was compressed and looked ugly. And the backpack's frabric didn't match what I was looking for.
But I wore it anyway the next school day. It looks good! Red is a good color for that. It is spacy(I put my AP physics book in it.) and very light. And what I like most is, it doesn't look big even if it has a lot of stuff in it. I hate people give me that kind of look when I carry two giant books and laptop - what a nerd. This is a good choice for basically everyone with a demand of heavy school work - like high school juniors or seniors or college students. Don't buy it if you are just a middle schooler: people will give you a nerd look..

Size Name: One SizeColor Name: Espresso
I bought this bag in True Blue for a two week trip to Europe. It sits well on the shoulders and is light. My husband liked it so much that he took that he took it once we returned home and I bought another one in Espresso. I don't feel weighted down with this bag and it holds a lot. The front section keeps things very well organized. I never felt on our trip that I was digging for passports, train tickets, hotel keys etc as everything had it's place. The back section easily holds a sweatshirt/light jacket with plenty of room for snacks, umbrella or anything someone might need for an adventure. This backpack is also great for long plane rides as it holds plenty to keep busy and keeps it organized.
