This backpack has been thoughtfully designed; it provides a wide range of options to organize your belongings with its multiple pockets and large compartments. The yellow straps are nice looking and provide you with a nice way to adjust the width of your pack whether for daily use, or for traveling. The shoulder straps are comfortable and distribute the weight evenly. The side pocket has an elastic band that securely fits multiple size water bottles.

Pros: Build quality, Ease of use, Great value
