This review is from: High Sierra Access Backpack (Sports)
The Backpack is nice, and to be honest there is a lot of room, but i think they really wasted some space with the rain-cover. Although if your area is constantly rainy then u probably will like this feature. I would rather use it as a separate spot for clothes or something though.

I got the green/charcoal and although the color is pretty bad (think pea soup) it was the 2nd cheapest at the time; (I got it at $40.) and much better than that weird black and white tree pattern that was the cheapest available.

I also wish it had either bottle holders on both sides instead of just one, and/or an umbrella holder on the other side.

Seems to be pretty durable but the front clip that you can strap in front of your chest ripped off with only a little pulling, Didn't really use it but I thought it was going to be a little tougher quality. Not really sure if the flex-suspension system really does anything but maybe it does. I can't really tell. And the breathable back really does not stop it from sweating that much either but I usually keep this thing pretty filled so it could be that.

I like the quick zip pocket both in the top/back for your laptop and quick access to books etc... but also the side pocket where i keep my sunglasses, 5 hour energy, things i want to grab while its on my back, That is a real time saver, although it would be nice to have a zipper on both sides for all the southpaws out there as well.

The laptop section is nice as well, i just use it for folders and easy access books but it fills up quick.

Also, it would be great of there would have been a divider from the laptop/books/files section, between the open pouch section because i have had some papers get crushed from water bottles and heavier objects i have had in the pouch section.

All in all, I know i am being picky on some of these things but i am generally satisfied with this bag and at the trade off for color to price i believe i got a great deal.

I've found returning the bag to High Sierra as a warranty return is pretty straight-forward so they are likely to send you a new one. They change some of the colors fairly frequently and the original color I had was discontinued so they asked me to send them 2 color preferences for a replacement. Since the strap broke anyway, you could always request a different color at the same time. You'd at least not have a broken strap and might be able to have something better than pea soup as well.
