This bag is awesome! A few years ago I bought this same style bag, only in a different color, but sadly it was stolen. I immediately bought the same bag, but in Avalon coloring because I loved it that much. This bag is great for toting small to big stuff around. I can fit books and my laptop (even has a cushioned backing for your laptop) in this bag with all my other stuff perfectly fine. The straps are great and very comfortable, plus you know this bag will last a LONG time as all of my Dakine bags are awesome. I have always received compliments on this bag and I love showing everyone the great quality of it. This bag has been through a lot with me and it was even machine washable! I can take this bag out for a night or during the day to work, class, boarding, traveling, etc. it is great for any and all occasions. Forget your Gucci, Chanel bags, get a Dakine and go home happy!
