Both as expected, and a little surprising.
on February 8, 2016
First off, this arrived a few days early, which was wonderful. I plan to use it for my gym clothes so I don't stink up my regular backpack. So far, I'm very impressed! I don't know what other reviewers are expecting at this price, but this purchase fulfills all my expectations. It is a drawstring bag, please look at the size description before you buy! And keep in mind that while it is technically 17 inches across the top, you pull the drawstring close when you use it. I would not recommend using this as an everyday backpack if you have to lug around several heavy or large textbooks, I can't imagine it would last that long. Since I'm using it mostly for clothes, this isn't really an issue for me. It recently carried 3 athletic outfits (a t-shirt, sports bra and joggers), my wallet, my phone and my water bottle, as well as a pair of shower flip flops, and that filled it to the brim. This is more capacity than I anticipate needing on a regular basis, so it works perfectly for me.
I will say there was one nice surprise, which has me putting 5 stars instead of 4 for the quality of the product. There is an outside zipper pocket. I put my phone and wallet in this pocket for easy access, and I plan to use it for my phone, wallet, and headphones in the future, though it could probably hold more. This pocket is mentioned in a few reviews, now that I'm looking for the information, but not in the product listing, and its not shown in the pictures for the product. Hence, surprise.
