Highly Reflective!

I love this backpack!! I wish I could rate it 3.5 stars. I bought it for trekking through the Amazon rainforest specifically because it's reflective. Great day backpack, fairly comfortable with lots of pockets. Beautiful.
I wish it had more padding on the shoulders and back, even just for people caring textbooks to class. I also wish it was coated with something or made from a different material so that it wasn't so delicate & flakey. Travel bags need to be washable & sturdy, even if it's just traveling on the bus!

Thank you for sharing your experience with us!

Love this backpack!

I love this backpack and use it for travel- only issue I’m running into is there it stains super easily. I’m not sure if others have had issues with the backpack getting so dirty, and I’m not sure how to go about cleaning it which is why I’m rating it 4 stars instead of 5. Maybe it’s not meant to be used for traveling all the time like I do…but it is super spacious and has convenient pockets everywhere. I hope I can find a way to get rid of these stains!

Thrilled to hear that you love it!

Really Beautiful Bag

I love this backpack, the only issue i’m having is that it actually can look very awkward wearing it when there’s not many items inside? it sort of sags and the flap rides up. But other than that i love it!

Thrilled to hear that you love it!

Versatile with Minor Flaws

Overview: I love the overall design and color choice for this backpack. I am 5'3 tall and the size of this backpack works really well for my body frame. The magic flash color is amazing! At first I thought it was gray when I pulled it out of the bag, but once the light and the sunlight hits it comes to life. And I've gotten several compliments on this backpack since receiving it a couple weeks ago.

Pros: The number of pockets is amazing on this backpack! It has a really good bottom compartment which has been really helpful to take lunch for work. If I have the right size container. The straps have been cushiony and very comfortable. I recently used this as a purse/ diaper bag for a recent family vacation and the weight of the backpack distributed really well to where the straps were still cushioned on my shoulders and wasn't heavy at all. The number of water bottle holders is really helpful and having them on both sides on the outside and two on the inside is very convenient, especially if you are a mom who has to carry multiple things with you. I've used this backpack for work as well and it's been great for carrying two laptops on some days that I need to. And I really enjoyed the velcro strap that holds the laptops in place.

Cons: I love that there are pockets on the outer facing part of the backpack. But the magnets are somewhat inconsistently sturdy. It would be helpful if the magnet was a little bit more secure in holding down the flap and if the pockets were a little bit taller. For the laptop interior holder, If it was just a little bit taller, that would be helpful for keeping the computer from falling forward when the backpack is set upright. I didn't mind the top drawstring for closing the backpack at first. However, I have noticed that throughout the time that you're carrying the backpack it does loosen up as you move. And would prefer a zipper closure or magnetic closure instead to keep things extra secure at the top. Especially since the top of the backpack also has a flap that buckles forward. One of the more disappointing factors of the backpack was that after using it for traveling/ as a diaper bag/ for work in less than 3 weeks, if the backpack bumped up against something, the fabric would scrape off and there was no way to fix this and it's really obvious where parts of the backpack were bumped into or hit against something from natural movement because the color is gone. I'm not sure if this is because of the magic flash color in comparison to the other solid colors. But I am really sad that this happened because the color and the flashiness of the backpack really make it very versatile while also eye-catching.

Overall, I really liked this backpack. My husband even carried this backpack and felt comfortable with it as well. It's been great for both work and for travel and carrying a ton of stuff without it weighing you down. The only downside was a couple of minor things here and there, including The color being impacted by normal wear and tear.

Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us! Glad that you are loving it!

Fell in love at first sight

I've owned this backpack for a week now, and I LOVE IT!

Here are the features I appreciate:

+ Pockets: Great for organization!
+ Magical flash: Oh this brings me joy.
+ Light-colored interior: Makes it easy to locate items. (plus love love love the design!)
+ Comfortable straps: they are well-padded.
+ Thick buckles: Durable and reliable - hope it'll last years and years.
+ Spacious: Fits my laptop, tablet, other gadgets and everyday needs.
+ Two trolley straps: Keeps the bag stable on luggage.
+ Bottom straps: Originally made for yoga mats but it's perfect for securing my tripod as well!
+ Quality stitching: Seems long-lasting.

Cons for me are:

- Security: The front pockets can be easily accessed by others when worn. Perhaps making the magnets stronger could help?
- Bottom compartment: Too small for shoes but works for thin sandals/slippers or emergency items.

Overall, I can't complain about the price, but making the shoe compartment larger and the front pockets more secure would make it even better. I LOVE THIS BAG and I'm very impressed with PopFlex's quality products! Now a fan!

Thank you for the lovely and detailed review!

Not durable but pretty

Disappointed. For 140 I expected durability but the water bottle strap broke after 3 use and I didnt even put heavy things in it (just socks and candy bar).
