I ordered this backpack and another to test out which had more space, stood up on its own, and accommodated my supplies for long days on campus. This bag was cute, good material, but it had a classic zipper open compartment that was less convenient than the purse-open-top style I ended up choosing instead.
After putting my binder, anatomy textbook, and laptop inside, there wasn't room on the sides for my water bottle. It's like you could only fit a to-go bottle on the outside if your bag wasn't full?
The bag was somehow more narrow than expected. I had a hard time fitting two 1in binders in it with my book, so I downsized to a single 1.5in binder and it fit but with some difficulty.
I think the bag is aesthetically pleasing but if you really need the space, it's not going to work well for you. If you are able to use a locker or leave things in your car instead of packing everything in a backpack, order it and test it out with your books etc. It just wasn't for me.
