Summary: This backpack was very comfortable to use especially because I care many heavy books all day long. Only thing that bothers me is I was told by website it was waterproof and the tag doesn't stay anywhere that this backpack is.
Summary: I'm very pleased with this bag. I am converting from a shoulder bag and bought this because the compact size should allow me to place under airline seat and still carry on luggage for overhead. I am slowly figuring out the placement of my regular items to be the most efficient. Access to Passport and travel docs are critical for me. I also will carry business documents and it all is compartmentalizing well, so far. I give it high marks for a bag of this price.
Summary: I took my old Targus backpack for 3 trips to Asia totalling over 3 months of travel. Then I spent 3 more years trudging around San Francisco on the streets and I always had it loaded down. There was not a single tear or hole anywhere on the backpack. It survived some brutal wear and tear. It could have still gone more years, but I was ready for a new one, so I bought another one just like it.
Summary: This case fits my 15.6 laptop very well. Zippers and zipper pull tabs look pretty sturdy. Ample padding and easy access to remove and store laptop. Delivery to Walmart food store close to me was very helpful.
Summary: I love my CVR600, having owned it about 6 years and used it heavily for 4 of those. The zipper finally succumbed to my relentless abuse, and I went shopping for a new one. Found it, bought it, got it, hate it! Look around for old photos of the CVR600, and you'll find a small zippered side compartment on the left, pen-loops inside the rearmost flap, and a mesh sleeve inside the main compartment. Also a belly-strap for long hikes, though I seldom used this.
Pros: solidly built , affordable , very comfortable
Cons: lacks enough pockets , poor use of vertical space , changed without telling anyone.
