Burton metal head back pack
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!!

love it
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.

Great Bag!
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.

Sturdy and comfortable straps
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'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
Abel o on Jul 4, 2014
The video made it seem like it had everything I was looking for-laptop storage, fleece pocket and board straps. The insulated compartment on the bottom was a bonus.

I purchased because of the video showing the functions of the bag, but Matt needs to lose the backwards ball cap with the adjustable strap. I had to deduct 50 IQ points.

Christmas present that my daughter picked out.
Shane B on Dec 7, 2013
I like the simple design with enhanced features. You can pack a snowboard on there and it has a key holder (my fiance always loses his keys). I also like the separate pouch for an ipod or mp3 player.
Taylor K on Dec 4, 2013
The insulated bottom pocket will be great for packing snacks when snowboarding/camping.

Maria C on Jul 24, 2014
For school will the wires on my notebooks tear through the cooler?
A shopper on Aug 12, 2014
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.
I hope this was helpful
Will this hold a 17.3 in laptop? dimensions are about 16 in long, 10.25 in wide, and 1 in thick.
A shopper on Jan 13, 2014
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" are better off buying a TARGUS for yours cuz it will fit awkward...other than that, it's a real fun multipurpose bag!
How many big pockets does it have? Like the number of zippers?
Gabriel S on Mar 14, 2014
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.
