This is a cool backpack for carrying around the town. Very sturdy fabric, pretty lining, padded pockets (not only the laptop pocket, little pockets inside the front organizer are also padded, good for phone/mp3 player), smart top pocket for sunglasses. Sits comfortably on the back. I used to choose how to dress when I had to carry something in a backpack - no skirts or anything of the sort, buy this one will go almost with anything, it's a true feminine backpack! I got lacey color, like it very much, though the purple pattern looks much more vivid in real life than in the picture, I didn't expect it to be so brightly purple. It was really hard to choose, I like almost all colors of this Dakine collection!

amazing pack back at last
I really decided to put some time and thought into my research for the perfect size, style, and attitude of the new pack I was about to purchase. It took me over 6months to really decide and weigh my options. Dakine's history as a company based here in the U.S, and simply their coolness lead me to buy the Garden pack. What excites me most is the unique design that allows me to carry a heavy pack without feeling that I am. It's stylish and 200% functional. I can't say enough. I will continue to purchase gear from Dakine since I am also promoting positive values of a U.S based company.

Excellent backpack. Bought as a Gift.
This backpack was a gift and the person I bought it for really loved it. It has lots of room and is just the right size.

Great looking backpack, only negative is that its somewhat thin
I love it overall- cute cheetah design and inside tie dye look is even cuter. It is just a little thin on the bottom (not for carrying a large amount of books over a long period of time) and there is no padding on the straps

Great backpack, a bit smaller than we expected
I bought the backpack for my daughter, it is a bit smaller than we expected. It has 3 zippered compartments, but they are all a bit small. Cannot fit lunchbox inside backpack when it has a large binder inside. Still, she loves everything else about it, especially the color, material and style. The straps are very comfortable, even when very full and heavy.
