First Backpack Love

(December 25, 2012)
"I purchased this bag when it went on sale for $30 which was already a fantastic deal. When I went to check on the status the next day I found that it had dropped to $20, so I immediately cancelled the first order and reordered the red bag. I waited a few weeks, wasn't really in a rush to get it but I was super excited when it arrived.
Firstly, the rich red colour of the bag is simply fantastic and the fabric is so soft. The pleather parts are extremely soft to touch as well, a clear indicator that it is not real leather, but I don't mind in the least considering the price I paid.
Second, the size of the bag is larger than I expected. I use it daily for school and I can comfortably fit a 15" laptop, my pencil case, phone, chargers, wallet, miscellaneous other junk that finds its way into my bags, and either (1) a few notebooks and a textbook, or (2) a notebook and two textbooks. I generally don't like to lug everything around in the bag, so I'll hold onto a textbook or so just to be safe but if you're not carrying the contents of your locker in there it should be fine.
Looking at the other reviews, I had some worries that the zipper would be an issue for me as well, but it's been over a month and I have had no problems with my zipper, so either I'm more careful with the bag than I realized, or Deux Lux responded to the feedback and adjusted the zippers accordingly.
Finally, some misc things that I wanted to cover:
- only a bit worried about the top where the straps are sewed onto the rest of the bag, mainly because of the weight of things that I throw in there
- this bag is legit the cutest bag ever and it's a fantastic backpack and I have gotten so many compliments with it on
- if it come back in stock, I recommend that you buy it on sale, only because if you do stumble upon those pesky zipper problems that others have, $70 is a lot to lose, unless you have the means, in that case, have at it"

Mehh...

(December 12, 2012)
"I bought the gray and brown one, thinking it looked really cute in the pictures. When I got it in the mail I didn't think it looked the same. The zippers are really shiny, which maybe some people would like, but it wasn't what I expected. It also seems a lot bigger than I thought it would be. I guess I can see someone else really liking it, but it's just not my style I guess. Looks more uppity/expensive from far away in real life than I wanted, but the quality isn't even that great. Just be careful!"

Cute and Soft but...

(October 11, 2012)
"I'm not so sure how this will hold up in the long run.
The fabric and faux leather material both look and feel great, however, mine also came with a zipper that was not properly stitched to the backpack.

Cute but cheaply made

(October 10, 2012)
"This bag is as cute as it looks online. I got it in the tan color. Unfortunately the zipper broke within two days of using it. Even after being very careful, the zipper came right off the track. Its too bad because this bag would match with so much. I will be returning this."

The backpack is adorable!

(September 29, 2012)
"When I first got this backpack, I absolutley loved it. I ordered the red one and the fabric is super soft. I have recieved TONS of compliments. Though, I gave this backpack a 4 because the zipper is a bit odd and I have to be careful when I zip it. Also, the two big front pockets are a bit difficult to close ( theres no magnetic force ) other than that, I absolutley love the backpack and totally recommend it!"

High Hopes

(September 14, 2012)
"This backpack is adorable! The contrast of ultra-soft fabric and leather is really pretty, however, after one week of using it, the zipper slid right off of the main compartment and the place it was attached ripped. I paid the full $70 for it and I'm upset to say the least. At $30, it's more appropriately priced, but just take into consideration that it won't hold up through (what I consider) average daily use."
