This backpack is so cute and durable. It does have tons of pockets, which in theory is a good thing, but they are all competing with each other for space. If you use some you can’t use others. (See photo of water bottle. I can’t use the inside pocket if I have a water bottle in the outside). I also felt like I had to work to get my water bottle into the outside pockets (I can only get it in one, but a backpack being able to hold my water bottle is huge for me, and I would’ve had to give this way fewer stars if I hadn’t been able to make a water bottle work.) I also love the key ring inside (perfect for my AirPods), but the weight pulls that whole section of the backpack in. It easily fits my surface laptop, so it’s the perfect size for me as I work part-time, but I’m also in grad school. It can hold my laptop, a binder with some articles in it, and a spare set of clothes/shoes for workouts. Overall, I do love it and would recommend it. Especially if you are like me and don’t actually need 1000 pockets.
I LOVE this backpack. It is so sleek and chic, and also built for the Alaskan weather (where I live). It is lightweight, and offers a multitude of pockets. I have a slim water bottle, that even fits in the exterior side pockets, which I was not expecting, given the other reviews. However, it is not perfect. The neoprene lips over the zippers make it hard to adjust the zippers (aka open and close the pockets) and I wish the exterior side pockets went all the way down. My canteen is on the taller side, and I am afraid it will one day fall out, though that has yet to happen. The bow is flatter in person, which I was not expecting, but still pretty cute. I also would love a second large pocket, as opposed to just the major giant one. The insulated shoe pocket is very handy, and a great feature. As other reviewers have stated, I would also love to see the laptop pocket padded. I love how I bring a little bit of Cassey around with me, throughout my busy days. :)
There is no nicer backpack than the one that Blogilates offers. I bought them in BOTH colors. It’s comfortable. I love all the pockets. I will say the side pocket doesn’t hold my water bottle. I don’t really use the side pocket.. anddd I wish the laptop pocket had more padding and was bigger. Because the pocket is smaller and sits higher up on the back pack, it causes my backpack to lean forward... I also just want some extra protection for my laptop than next padding... there is no benefit to having a laptop pocket if there’s no padding. The pocket doesn’t even fit my laptop very well. I think padding would fit that, if at least offer protection. Overall, it’s my favorite backpack and it had the same back pack for YEARS. I bring my backpack to work everyday (because purses are over rated) and it gives a classier look. The one I had previously was a green/blue tie dye backpack I got from Target in 2012. Nice backpack but this one seems more professional and matches my outfit more.
Hello! I am a single mom with 2 kids, a Culinary Arts Instructor, house cleaner, and have a cake/pastry making side hustle. Put simply I am Very busy. I have a lot on my plate and needed a back that was durable and could keep up with my daily responsibilities. While also not looking like the hott mess I feel like. When Casey came out with the Bia Backpack I watched the unveiling video so many times, too many times. Oh the pockets!!! I needed this backpack to consolidate my many bags that I carted into school daily. So I put it on my Christmas list and waited... apparently the 10 and 5 year old rely solely on me for monetary needs, who knew! JK, I knew. Anyway after saving up for a bit I took the plunge. Which turned out to be not such a sharp fall thanks to AfterPay. (Check that out if you are of the frugal nature, life saver!) I was so excited when it got here I hid the box for like a week until I had the time to full organize and transfer all of my things. It was a beautiful 5am morning when I decided to open my sweet surprise. It. Was. Worth. The. Wait. I can not even express the gratitude or thankfulness I felt in that dimly lit quiet space. This was something I did for myself. Not for the kids. Not for anyone else, it was just for me. It is perfect for me. It has all of the pockets, small spaces, big spaces for all of your organizing needs. I am pretty sure Mary Poppins would swoon over this backpack. I can have everything I need (sticky notes included) all in one space. It's also weather proof, so no matter where I go it can take the elements. On top of all of that IT IS GORGEOUS! I look like a flipping adult who has their stuff together, literally and figuratively. The no fuss outside with the single bow is very much my kind of style. The beautiful pattern that lines the inside is like opening up a present every time I open it. The little things make such a huge difference. All I can say is I love it. This was something I needed and wanted. It hit all the check marks. Thank you so much!
It is a really beautiful and comfortable backpack, but as for functionality it is not practical. I travel for work 3 weeks out of the month, the outside pockets are not great for holding water bottles or even a travel umbrella. They are so small and tight. The description says this is for easy accessible items, but keeping my phone here is just asking to be stolen. It would make more sense to increase the size of these pockets to hold a water bottle. Keeping my water bottle inside the backpack, even if is leak proof runs the risk of leaking on my laptop. The inside pockets are great, but different sizes so I can’t keep both my cell phones in the upper pockets for easy access. The shoe storage is awesome. For the price I expected it to be more functional and safe. Would even love to have a safety pocket in the back for valuables.
I absolutely love this backpack! It's large enough to fit pretty much everything I would want to bring with me and the straps are comfy enough that it won't hurt my shoulders. The material is amazing and seems like it will hold together really well. When we're out of the pandemic, this will be the bag I bring everywhere with me. The only thing is the zippers are a little difficult to move, particularly in the shoe compartment area.
I purchased this backpack to take with me on the plane when traveling. Unfortunately, I haven’t had a chance to use it for that purpose yet but it seems like it’ll be perfect! The material is sturdy and high quality and all of the compartments are very useful for all of the stuff I need to take with me. And it looks so cute!! I love it and I’m so glad I decided to purchase it! It was also shipped very quickly, was well protected with the packaging, and it came with a matching dust bag.
