I got this backpack for my 9th grade daughter. She was very happy with it. It looked just like the picture. It was shipped quickly and she can fit everything she needs for school in it.This backpack was a great price compared to other sites we shopped at. We would order from Backcountry again.
Very Comfortable Backpack
This backpack is really comfortable and doesn't seem very heavy at all even when it's filled. Although Dakine's Garden backpack appears small, it can surprisingly fit a lot of books (depending on the thickness of the books), and it still holds its shape very well. The organizer pockets are great as well. I personally think that it has just the right amount of pockets, unless you're someone who prefers having an extra pocket or so. I have a really slim laptop so it fits just fine in the laptop sleeve. This backpack is the perfect size for middle school/high school, but if you're someone who likes to carry a lot of extra/unnecessary stuff around, then a larger backpack might be better. I'm really glad I bought this backpack and I would definitely recommend it.
Too small for a laptop
This is a beautiful, sturdy pack but it's too small to carry a normal-sized laptop. My other daughter use the larger (1500cc) prom pack for her first year at college and it isn't showing any signs of wear and tear. She loves it. Dakine makes a quality product so just be sure to watch the size. I think you'll need a 1500 cc or larger pack to carry a laptop and a few books.
This is a great backpack! It has plenty of room, but isn't one of those huge packs that looks like you are ready for a 10 day excursion. The laptop sleeve says it will fit 14 in. I was able to get my 15 in. Macbook pro in it, it was a tight fit though. Nice organizational pockets as well.
Some of the stitching is already coming out
This bag is really pretty but.... some of the stitching is already coming out. Plus the bag is a little small. When I first opened thought the size would be perfect. But once I put in my laptop, all the necessary cords for travel and and a few odds and ends it would have been nice if it would have been a little bigger.
Spacious and cute, can go wrong!
Bought this for my niece for back to school and we could not be more happy with it. The backpack may be pink but don't just go off looks Dakine makes a heavy duty and reliable bag. The straps are adjustable so it will sit comfortably on her shoulders and wont hurt her back. The convenient water bottle holder, and middle storage space for her pencils is a plus. She may not a laptop to utilize the padded laptop sleeve but I am sure she will find something creative to do with it. Plenty of space for everything you could imagine.
Back to school here she comes!!!
