This is my favorite back pack ever by far. This is my 2nd time purchasing the same bag so if there is a warranty I need to et one. I'm super rough on stuff ad my first bag lasted me 3 yrs before the chest strap piece got stuck in a chair lift and ripped off. I recommend this bag for any one that rides anything and needs to keep food, extra shoes, gear for travels ad hikes and pretty much all around outdoor adventure bag!!
great backpack for any purpose. I carry my college textbooks in it everyday, and then use the bottom cooler part for storing drinks on football gamedays. I have had it for over a year, it is showing no signs of wear. great value.
This bag is simply great! I have never had a bag that I use so much that has lasted this long. It is an amazing bag that is durable and has a lot of room with a lot of pockets, so you can store practically anything you want.
I've used this for a year now, from school to trips. pretty durable and very water proof. my laptop loves the cushy padded slot for it. lots of room for many things, i was surprise. the media pocket is great with the headphone cable port. the pack feels pretty light and very comfy. the cooler compartment works pretty good considering what it is.
I ordered this for my high school son, and it's great. The straps are very cushioned, and the side compartment for water bottles is a deep zippered pocket, not a mesh, so the drinks don't want to topple out. It looks a little small but holds a lot. Very sturdy construction.
I am extremely happy about my back pack! I took it on a flight to Colorado for Thanksgiving and I packed it as a carry on and put my 1 yr old daughters bottles of breast milk in the bottom pocket which is insulated and kept her milk cold and was easy to get to!! This bag is exactly what I was wanting it was a great price and the zippers work and there is no rips or tears! I knew how big it was and how many pockets it had so I knew what to expect and w it being so cheap I was a little skeptical about the stitching and quality of the overall bag? But since my trip and the multiple trips to the mountains and the beach since then the bag is perfect w no rips or years or zippers being stuck! So I strongly recommend this back pack to anyone looking for a back pack! It also holds my long board between classes in school when I can't ride it! Love it! Thank you so much!!!
I bought this bag for my junior year in highschool. The bag is very big and i can fit 3 binders, a large 3 subject notebook folders, papers, 3 one subject notebooks, and a textbook and still have room for my lunch! Its also very water proof got caught out in the rain with it one day and not one thing got wet... Only thing i dont like is there is no spot for pencils in the bag, so they get put in the side pocket... Overall great bag gonna convert it to my boarding bag next year!
I have now used this bag for almost a year, and I love it. I use it everyday to carry my stuff around, but have also used it to carry my stuff for the weekend. The zipper pocket at the bottom easily sepates my running/dirty clothes, find that very handy. It also has a compartment to keep a 15 inch laptop, that's convenient too. Would buy this one again if the current one wears out, which seems unlikely any time soon.
We bought this backpack for our son to use in school. He's had it for over a year, used it daily for school and recreational purposes, and it's still in excellent condition. We would definitely recommend this backpack!
I bought this bag for my husband to use at university. When I gave it to him he was shocked that I paid such a low price for such a high quality bag. I love the look of this bag and it's durability. It can hold so much and the straps make it comfortable to carry. I was looking at bags that cost 3x as much, but I am glad that I chose this one. It's simple and classy styling paired with it's great quality make this the ideal bag. Plus all those pockets and the cooler in the bottom are an added bonus!
It still has lasted me quite some time. owned it for about a half year and it's still kicking good condition. No signs of wear just yet. The cooler is kind of a nitch and not really needed after some uses. I had turned my judgment over to not needed other then another pocket. sense this backpack lacks a over pockets I think it only deerves a four star to the most, lacks compacity and cargo room. But if your settling for less paces to carry things this backpack maybe what you need sense it can also hold a skateboard.
I use this bag a lot. It has a bunch of different pockets, and the cooler is a nice touch. Board straps on nicely, too. I can't say I would recommend paying full price for it, but I say that about a lot of stuff. Just wait for it to go on sale
I'm looking to invest in some skater hobby a bit for past time besides riding a bike. It has a cooler. so I was just wondering about the cooler part. it may or may not be a good investment. but worthy to give it a shot
For school will the wires on my notebooks tear through the cooler?

Best Answer:it depends I guess on the aulity of your notebooks...I say that because I have had notebooks with wires and unless they fall apart, which mine have not, all is well. this is an excellent bag for the price- you are actually under paying if there is such a thing. I have run it through so much wear and tear and after putting it through its first wash last week after owning it over a year, it still looks like new. cheers! I hope this was helpful
They would have to be some seriously pointy wires. I use this backpack for everything from short weekend trips to beer runs to school and it has yet to be damaged with over a year of hard use. I carry my laptop and cord in it, no tearing.
My son has had this bag for 3 years, it's been used every year for school, every winter for snowboarding & every summer for diving. It still looks like new and hasn't shown one sign of damage. I love this bag. :)
I had my backpack from two years ago and it is still working great! Not tear or ripes. Best if you register your burton back to the company they will replace it. It's their warranty deal for their customers.
Will this hold a 17.3 in laptop? dimensions are about 16 in long, 10.25 in wide, and 1 in thick.

Best Answer:I love this bag. I have taken it skiing to Maine, and surfside on south beach. It works best in the rain and snow. not too much space inside- but my HP fits snug, though mine is a FULL 17 inch diagonal closed and like 3/4" thick...you are better off buying a TARGUS for yours cuz it will fit awkward...other than that, it's a real fun multipurpose bag!
Best Answer:It has a big zipper at the bottom of the bag with insulation inside it. But since I put stuff inside like books and my chrome netbook, I never use it for foods since they will get crushed. It has small pockets on the sides and a small pocket on top for keys and chapstick and stuff. The big zipper is the one for the area inside. It's a great backpack for regular daily use, school, weekend or daily travel and excellent in storms.
One main pocket and two small outer pockets for wallets or phones; I like to use one for a water bottle. It's a fairly small bag so not great for school but perfect for day trips.Its also got an inner laptop sleeve in the main y pocket but too small for my 15.4 inch, but perfect for extra water bottles or shoes.
One zippered main compartment. One iPod pocket, side pocket and a cooler compartment on the bottom. Plus a holder for your skateboard.
Not truly big enough if you haul around lots of books. Good quality tho.
