I am a commuter at a large state school and I often have classes all day. I have to bring my books and notes with me but it's also essential that I have other items such as my water bottle, hand lotion, lunchbox, etcetera. All of the stuff I need adds up and it takes a special kind of bag to be able to 1) be large enough to fit all of that and 2) to not be a total burden on my back.

The bag arrived on time and in good condition (despite the blizzard on the east coast so A+ to Amazon!) Upon unfolding the bag you'll notice that:
1) It is VERY large, which at first alarmed me. There's a happy medium when it comes to the size of a tote bag because if it's too small it's useless because you can't fit everything you need and if it is too big it's usually already very heavy or can be easily made heavy because you just throw stuff in there without thinking. This bag is not heavy at all when empty which is always an excellent quality in a tote or carry all.
2) The material is washable! It does not attract dirt or dust, which is great because it's unavoidable to put a bag of this size on the floor when you are a student. (Though the lack of dirt on my bag may be because I got a darker color.)

After using it for several days I can fit my iPad, planner, pens and pencils, several notebooks, water bottle and lunch box with plenty of room to spare. The provided pouch is perfect for storing chargers or wires you may need through out the day. My 15 inch MacBook Pro also fits comfortably and the bag is not terribly uncomfortable, though it does start to get heavy when you're standing on a bus for 20 minutes. The nice thing about the bag is that it is big enough when I need to take my laptop or extra items to school for a long day or if I want to keep the load light. You could feasibly throw in a change of pants or work out clothes (but I don't know about sneakers) if you didn't have too many books in there.

The only negative I've found about the bag is it's lack of organization which I think is understandable on LeSportsac's part. They wanted to keep the bag's weight low and adding bells and whistles like keychains and extra pockets might make that more difficult. It has three outer zipper pockets that are good for your phone, wallet, keys or even storing a pencil case for easy access. They would easily fit a standard size disposable water bottle. I use a 24 oz Thermos reusable water bottle that does not fit in it perfectly but as long as it's in one of the outside pockets, the top of it that is sticking out does not bother me.

I would recommend this bag to any commuter or for anyone taking a day or weekend trip. But I would also tell them to have some smaller pouches or a purse organizer so you don't go crazy trying to find your phone or favorite pen at the bottom of this enormous bag.

This bag is multipurpose. For work you can throw in your netbook, blackberry, papers and a bottle of water and have room for your kid in there. For play, you can throw in the kids snacks, ipods, sneakers, etc. It's huge, tons of room. I love it.

This bag is very durable as well as being a cute addition to your travel accessories.
The only thing that would make this bag perfect would be if it had a flat bottom. You really need to stuff it to get it to stand up. It would also be nice if it had a few more pockets on the inside, like one for your cell phone and one for your ipad. It wipes off nicely and it's waterproof. The three pockets on the outside are nice but not practical. They need to put 2 side pockets on the ends, one for a water bottle and one for such things as easy to reach snacks, gloss and sunglass case.

I love this bag. Initially purchased as a weekender for short trips on the train/plane, I use it all the time! It fits a ton of stuff but is also not too bulky if you only have a few things in it. I would recommend this bag to anyone.

I didn't think that this was going to be nearly large enough for all the items I needed to fit in it; but I took a chance because of the beauty of the Sugarland print. I have a large arm and sometimes when bags do not have a large enough drop between the top of the handles and the beginning of the bag I have troubles. I do not have to worry about that with this bag. The picture of the shiny black bag (if it remains the same as when I purchased it) is a good example of how this bag can get taller if need be, or stretch out width wise for those stuffed full moments that I am sure are coming. Overall I am happy with another LeSportsac product!

It's lightweight and attractive and just the perfect size for a gym bag or weekend bag. I was so bummed when I discovered that it was not flat on the bottom. The lack of shape or bottom made the depth of this bag seem much smaller. Don't get me wrong, this is a LARGE bag. Just the shape didn't work for me. I much prefer a bag that has a flat bottom because it helps keep the bag organized and keeps stuff from just sort of shifting and floating around all over the inside of the bag. I normally love LeSportsac bags, but this one fell short. I am still going to keep it because it's super cute, but it won't be used for its originally intended purpose.

I adore this bag. Bought it for a trip to Europe, and it was perfect for travel. I did make one change. I added straps on the back to slip over my luggage handle. They made a huge difference. If LeSportsac did the same, this would be a 5 star. Note that when fully loaded, like with a pillow, the top extends up about 3 inches, which is great. Only problem at all was the way the top zipper pulls would get stuck in the corners. When that happened, it took some finagling to get them to pull. If you haul a laptop, get a neoprene sleeve. I easily carried a 17" wide laptop in this tote. All in all I highly recommend this bag.

I was looking for a big bag. This is very light and you can easily store in another bag until you need it. I mostly use this as my gym bag, but this works well as mommy bag.
