I got this backpack and the first thing I noticed is the size. It's taller than you may think. When I store my binders,books,etc. inside, there so much space at the top. There are only 3 pockets and 2 water bottle holders. It needs more pockets. It stores a lot(obviously) and that's what's enjoyable. The padding feels great, no aching back. But the height threw me off. Cute designs. Would recommend for highschooler or better yet, a travel pack.
