The good: I really like the back, it keeps its shape and enables breathability. The bag is cute and I love the purpler colour. Good size for a light jacket, water bottle, and lunch on a day day hike. I also wouldn't mind if it was 12L or 13L in capacity...
The bad: Not sure if this is a problem for others but the straps rub against my skin ( i was wearing a tank top) and it's painful.
I am a college student striving to go as paperless as possible for the environment. My iPad Pro 10.5 inch fits perfectly into the “laptop sleeve” (I think it’s intended as a holder for hydration system? But that’s not what I’m using it for) and the rest of my essentials-eating utensils, reusable shopping bag, cords, an A5 folder and notebook, planner, medications, water bottle, pens and pencils, wallet, phone, and umbrella-all fit into the main compartment nicely. I recommend that you choose a smaller water bottle if you’re using this backpack’s bottle holder as intended. Longer bottles really do stick out. Other than that I have no gripes. Excellent choice for people who like to travel light.
That being said, I do have my trusty Jansport Hatchet for the majority of days when I need to carry more stuff. It’s the best 10L backpack you can get, much better than the under-padded Arpenaz and, in my opinion, worth every penny if you use it often and for extended periods of time.
Bought this to put my fleece or jacket in when birdwatching. Super little backpack comfortable to wear. I can even fit my field guide in along with keys phone etc. Great buy
Great size for a day pack. Attractive style and colours.
My friend seen it the other day, and is going to order one.
great bag for cycling to work, so comfy and neat stays perfectly on your back. Great out for day out with the children (providing I am not carrying a days worth of food!) too. If it was perfect it would have a key clip but its pretty close!
