An awesome bag for active people!

The backpack I received is the real deal: the proper zipper, seal, fabric, stitching, country of origin, and little Swedish flag inside as the cherry on top. I've had it for a little over a month and a half. I use it every day for work, and also took it on a trip to Yosemite for a week. It holds everything I need! I usually bike to work, and I bring with me my lunch in a fairly large bento box, a 32 oz bottle of water, a small bag of daily essentials (band-aids, pocket tissue, bobby pins, lotion, chapstick, a compact mirror, a small portable charger), my wallet and a snack bar in the front pocket, a poncho in one side pocket, and my phone in the other side pocket). For Yosemite, it was the perfect little camera bag/day pack with my camera in a protective foam insert, plus my bag of essentials (which is light and won't hurt my camera when it's all packed), wallet, phone, and a 1.5 liter water bladder that I clipped to the outside handles when my camera was in my bag, and tucked inside when I had my camera out while hiking. It worked perfectly! The fabric is rugged enough for daily use, even in the mountains. It was scuffed up against rocks and boulders many times, with no tearing. I got a dark color, so I don't know about stains, but it's still a beautiful blue. It's also truly waterproof, inside and out. My bottle once leaked during my commute, and I didn't even notice until I opened it up and found about 8 oz. of water sitting along the bottom. I emptied it, and it dried out completely within 8 hours when it was time to go home. I love this bag and am looking forward to using it for many more months to come!
