Color: Ash Verified Purchase
The backpack itself is pretty nice. The fabric feels sturdy, the flanel pocket for glasses is a nice touch, and here are plenty of pockets. I removed two stars because, after owning the backpack for about 3 months, several seams have started to fray. You can see in the attached pictures that the thread used to sew these seams must be poor quality, or just extremely prone to fraying. I've used Dakine bags for many years, and I'm surprised how quickly this bag is seeming to deteriorate. Maybe I got a lemon.

I have now purchased several Dakine backpacks, and these things are virtually indestructible. All are made with tough 600 denier nylon, extremely well-sewn seams, and are designed to be as user-friendly as possible. (I don't drive a car, therefore, I bike or walk everywhere, including to the grocery store. The two Dakine packs that I have used for more than a year to haul everything from groceries to books are still in pristine condition.) My two sons' backpacks (not Dakine) were literally falling apart, and so I bought them each a new Dakine backpack. One was the "small campus" version, the other was the "large campus" version. The large one I bought for my son with the 17 inch laptop. The laptop measures 16.5 x 11 inches. It fits perfectly - in case anyone needs to know that. (The descriptions of these packs usually only specify that 14" or 15" laptops will fit.) However, FYI, a 17 inch laptop does NOT fit into the Small Campus pack.

What I have found to be especially useful is to "waterproof" these bags when they're new. (I have found that "Kiwi's Camp Dry Fabric Protector" works very well, and does not change the pack's color.) Not only does it keep the packs dry - but it also keeps them clean!! Dirt seems to fall right off of them. I also make sure I waterproof the shoulder straps as well, as these get handled the most. Great backpack. Highly recommended.

The Good:

I received the back pack 1 day before the expected arrival date. I am very satisfied with this purchase. I needed a large back as I have broad shoulders and over 6 feet in height. This bag fits me perfectly and the size is great.

I use this bag to keep my 15.6" laptop, some note books and my tablet and the bag feels very sturdy. Feels like it will last a few years under some harsh conditions. The most outer pocket can keep your cold drinks cold and your hot ones hot which is a plus if you do lots of walking in the city.

The Ugly:

One thing that turned me off to it however was the material inside the bag is bright orange. This wasn't a deal breaker however the bright orange was a bit unexpected and felt that the color clashed with the overall color scheme. Not a huge deal.

One design feature that I think could have been improved is the laptop sleeve. At times I can feel my CPU slap against my back as the sleeve is not high enough to keep the laptop in place. I'd say it covers about 75% of the surface area of the laptop. I don't expect the sleeve to rip or tear, but if there is anything I dislike about the bag it would be the sleeve.

Overall I gave it 4/5 stars because of the price,fast delivery and quality.

Note: I had seen the same bag at an offline retailer for about 30% more expensive. Cannot beat the price!

I bought this backpack my first week of Freshman year in college. I needed a strong, sturdy backpack that also looked classy. This backpack is GREAT for students. I attend a university with a large campus, lug my backpack around everywhere from biking around campus to using it as a weekender bag to go home. After a full year of abuse, it still looks good as new and I still get compliments on it.

I would pick it over the Northface! Buy!!!!!! Good price too :) I have the Carbon one!

Well worth the money. This pack holds a surprising amount of weight and does so without straps or stitching giving out. The front pocket cooler pouch is kind of lame and shouldn't be marketed as such. The padding is too thin to be effective for the advertised purpose. Otherwise, it's sturdy and reliable -- also carries nicely with adjustable chest strap.

I got this backpack on time and everything was good about it other than the coloring. The picture shows a white looking front with darker sides. When I received it, what I thought was going to be white was more of a pale green look and gave the backpack a more male look than what I was looking for. There was nothing else wrong with the backpack I just didn't like that the picture was so different from the product that was delivered.

I've owned both the Campus SM and this one. The small one works ok if you only have to carry a laptop and a book or 2, but if I wanted to carry a jacket, then it was really bulky. With the large version I don't have that problem, I carry my college books, a laptop and a jacket and have some extra room. The insulated pocket is much more useful on this version too.

for the price you will not get a better bag. it's totally insulated, and feels super durable. I have had the walmart brand bags my whole college career, and this is heads and shoulders above that. I dont see myself having to replace a bookbag every semester now. Definitely worth it.
