This was a gift for my boyfriend who is a hiker / commuter / carries things like books and a laptop or clothes for day trips etc. He loves it! It's not the most compact or lightweight, but the rolltop is super functional, it's waterproof/ water resistant, the hidden phone pocket in the back is great, the shoulder straps are comfortable, and we both love that it's made from recycled plastic!!!! This bag seems super durable and well-made. The stitching is all heavy-duty, and the magnetic closure is super strong. Would definitely recommend this bag! It seems like it will last for years.
