Usb phone front pocket is bigger! It can finally hold a smartphone
Reviewed in the United States on August 27, 2019
The reason why I bought this is because I had one before that was recently stolen, I loved it so much I just had to get a new one.
My only two complaints about this model (my first purchase) was the zipper on the quick access pocket broke, rendering it useless - you can't put a wallet or anything important in a broken pocket on the back of your backpack for risk of it falling out or someone stealing it.
My other complaint was the USB phone pocket with way too small, it looked like it was designed for a flip phone from 2006 and there's no way a smartphone would fit believe me, I tried.
When I was looking at pictures this one it looked the same, so I assumed they didn't update on the design. I was pleasantly surprised to see that they actually fixed it, it will now actually hold a smartphone.
My only regret is the color / texture I chose. I wanted to try a different color, my old one was the black and red, the material seemed more durable this, this material almost feels like a polyester Jansport.
they also updated the USB port which is also more secure and rubberized instead of plastic.
I'll update my review and several months to tell you how the zipper is held up on this one.
$100 price point seemed high considering it went to $85 the next day after I bought it, and it originally only cost me $69 at Target.
Other than that, overall it's a great backpack my orginal probably would lasted me 20 years if somebody didn't steal it. Hopefully I can keep this one safe!
