The Matix Ridgecrest Backpack sounds like it was named after some street in an upscale neighborhood. And while that may be the case, it is also a very useful backpack when it comes to suburban adventures. It can hold your skateboard, which comes in handy when you have to pull your board off it while being chased from cops for taking all the pink flamingo lawn ornaments. The rather voluminous main compartment and a separate front compartment can hold all the cookies you charmed from those young lady scouts.

this is a super comfortable back pack! compared to every other back pack i've owned the back padding is so cushioning i swear it's like wearing a marshmallow!! the gray is a really classy color and matches anything i wear. love the skate straps and the little pockets for everything (eyeglass pocket, key clip, headphone exit, laptop pocket).
sadly, the construction is not as good as other backpacks i had. this is the first time (ever!) i have not bought a DaKine bag- usually they last me at least 5 years. i've had this less than three months and some of the sewing on the back is coming apart (the "quiliting" area on the padding. i will probably try to reinforce this because it is close to the shoulder strap. guess i carry too many text books, heh.) also one of the bungies around the outside water bottle/side pocket is broken so i can't cinch it any smaller. in effect, it's useless if you have a small water bottle. if only the construction was better, i would have given more stars.
