honestly, don't understand all the hype

i really wanted to love this given all the hype around these backpacks. i purchased it for my trip out to CA since it wasn't a normal backpack that made me look like i was going back to school, but rather could be worn casually with different outfits. the thin straps look better than a normal backpack (i'm comparing it to my north face backpack that i used for school and still use for traveling today) but if you're wearing a tank top, they will scratch your skin (it's fine with a short/long sleep shirt or with a jacket/sweater). it is super light so that's a plus but there isn't much in the way of padding or support so not ideal. also, it's just a big sack in the middle so if you want to organize your stuff, you need pouches. my healthy human bottle doesn't fit in the side pockets so i just used those for chapstick or my phone. it won't replace my north face backpack for traveling purposes but i can chuck it in my luggage to use out and about when exploring a new city and if i don't want to wear a purse or tote. if i could, i would probably return because i don't think it's worth the money but since i can't, i'll keep it and use it when i can.
