I use it all the time now. I pack books and magazines and shirts and anything possible. I’m a 20 year old college student so I have trash in there and books and weird stuff that adds so much bulk but it doesn’t look or feel big. Its sort of like a magic bag. Plus the color is awesome and the straps are really nice. I love my baby! This backpack was way better than I expected. It was the cheapest one I could find on a college student budget and the material is a very thick sturdy canvas and it overall looks very good and doesn’t in the least look cheaply made.
