Super good quality!

I wasn’t sure what to expect but oh my goodness, the thick quantity, not only of the fabric but the zippers as well, also has compartments for my laptop, water bottom and what not as well which is great. I was comparing quite a few sustainable book bags and ended up going with this one, super happy with it. Best decision! Thank you!

Can’t Review

I live in the UK and the back pack was a graduation present for my Granddaughter in California. It arrived when you said it would and was exactly what she had asked for. I can’t comment otherwise, but I’m glad to know that I gave a sustainable gift. The star rating should be ignored.

would recommend!

This What is my first time ordering from this company and it was a little pricey but sustainable lifestyle is so I was OK with it. They gave me a free little pouch and I really appreciate that. The backpack was exactly what they said in the description and I love it.

Best backpack ever

The quality is amazing so much better than all those dinky other ones. I got it In black and its a good colour its not fade I even had to spot wash it and no colour leaked it was great! Pockets are deep. ONLY thing is that the watterbottle pockets are a little tight so its hard to fit the bottle in there but I honestly could care less cuz the backpack itself has so much space I just put my bottle in it with my laptop and textbooks etc. I recommend this backpack to everyone I see and get constant compliments on how sleek it looks and the quality! GET IT! not to mention to feel good buying it because of the sustainability aspect. no buyers guilt :P

Very comfortable

I had the first backpack Terra Thread released. but wasn't overly fond of the design, or the bottom being a different color from the rest of the bag. When Terra Thread released this version I bought it, and have been using it since August without any complaints. I like the style a lot better. I wish this bag had been available when I was in college.
