I have thought about purchasing this backpack for quite some time and it was on sale so I bought it.
I read so many good things about this backpack. It's simple design and looks functional.

Greatest Backpack EVER
May 25, 2019
I have been searching for years for the perfect backpack - one that is stylish yet super functional and doesn't overwhelm my small frame but can also fit a ton of things. Yes, I was asking a lot from one backpack and was constantly disappointed with the ones I was finding. I am a bit of a Marimekko obsessive and have been looking at all their backpacks for a while but just could not decide which one would be best for me. I have both the Pal Bag and the Cash and Carry, which are the crossbody bags from this line, and I love them SO MUCH so I knew that if this backpack was even half as functional as those, it would be perfect. And I was right! This thing is amazing! What I love the most is the structured shape that allows me to pack it every day with my laptop, my lunch box, a jacket plus a water bottle and it still keeps a shape that doesn't let everything fall to the bottom and overwhelm my body. It also has so many excellent pockets and is going to be an absolute perfect carry-on bag for upcoming trips. I love this bag!

best urban backpack ever!!!
September 14, 2014
I bought this backpack in grey about 4 years ago in Berlin. I was immediately fascinated by how light it was. When I brought it to Oslo, it was a nice surprise to find out that the material was very water resistant to begin with. Water resistance lasted quite long, as I wash the backpack every once in a while. It is incredibly spacious: returning from work and doing groceries for dinner, it would fit most of the things. But it is still smaller than a backpack you need for 2-3 days hiking in the woods, so sometimes you would end up carrying some extra groceries in your hand. I estimate the maximum capacity to be approx 18-20 L. Though the fabric is light and technically "advanced", being water resistant, the rest of the features are straight-forward. One large opening, three side pockets and one (or two?) smaller, "hidden" pockets on the back. Note the two rings hanging from each side - I clip on reflex figures (of course, Marimekko's are the coolest) in the winter as it is very dark here in Oslo - so yes, it would also make a very good and stylish school bag. The big opening has two zippers and a slight disappointment happened when one of them lost its "handle" after heavy use. Otherwise the zippers are of high quality. Remember that you can put a heavier rain cover over it for extra safety and rain protection. I do not recommend it for sports, however, as it lacks some features. But I need to stress that it has side reflex lines to add to the safety in the dark. I adore it.
  • light, elegant, water resistant
  • for urban use, none
