So practical in all situations
I got the Cruiser Backpack recently but am using it since in tough conditions (mud, dust, sand), being aid worker, travelling a lot, especially in Africa.
Nothing more to say than it makes the job for sure! I can carry everything I need, including laptop, paperworks, cables,...
Resistant, discreet, comfy to wear, in a word, perfect tool for me!

So apparently this is a men's bag... who knew. As a woman I love all the pockets and bought this bag for school and then later to use for work. Sadly after about 2 years of love, the zipper broke, and I stuck it in the closet with the intention of getting it fixed. I brought it back to the store figuring that they might be able to help me get it fixed, and I was pleasantly surprised that they offered to exchange my old (more than 2 years old - and full of coffee stains and pen marks) bag for a new one, since they said that the broken zipper couldn't be sent away for fixing.
I'm very impressed with the customer service, and am happy to be back in action with my new Cruiser bag :)

Personally, I don't use backpacks however I purchased the cruiser backpack for my husband. After this backpack, amazingly he became a Lululemon fan. Literally, everything started with this bag and now he cannot go outside without his bag. It comes with many pockets which he uses for pens, cellphone, PS Vita, sunglasses, mini iPad, water and computer. Also, when he travels the backpack doesn't look bulky which is a life saver at the airport checks. I'd recommend it for everyone.

More Colours For Girls?
Hey, I have had this cruiser backpack since grade 10 so now fourth year of uni that is like almost 7 years of use now! It definitely is time for a replacement since it has become very worn out and ripped in places; however, the cruiser back pack original only comes in very boring black dark colours. I really regret not picking one up a few years back when they had come in so many fabulous colours and patterns. I remember the lining being amazing bright patterns. Mine is black with different coloured zippers and lime green lining.
Can we please get this backpack in more fun colours for girls? I know i constantly am complimented on it since it is such flattering structure and very functional. GIRLS LOVE the CRUISER TOO! I have many female friends with the cruiser, but we all need new ones!

Love this bag, however it is a little brittle
I bought this 3 or 4 months ago. It looks great, is practical and versatile. Cleverly and beautifully designed as per all Lululemon products. However within a very short time frame and with really minimal trauma (travelling from car to work), the fabric has become quite scuffed and the iconic metal emblem has fallen off. Such a shame! I too am questioning the overall quality of build in this product.

great...but worn out
I bought this bag about 4 years ago.. and I love it! I have used it for school and it is nice, big, sturdy and durable. The only problem with it now is that its starting to get in rough shape. It is now very worn out, the straps are very thin and it has rips all over. I wonder if Lululemon replaces worn out items? The one I have is an older version of this bag, but this one is the exact same, just different colors.

Great for busy student-athlete
I have had this backpack for about 6 months now. Got it during the summer because it is the only men's bag available. Then when the semester restarted I realized how amazing this back was! Being a commuter-yogi-crossfitt'ing student, I am able to carry my necessary items: laptop, books, charger, pens, mat, wrist-straps, and lunch. With all the compartments I tend to think that I left stuff at home, when actually they're just securely placed in a separate compartment. It's great!! I don't know what people are saying that it's "not roomy enough" - if that's the case I no longer feel like a hoarder leaving my house because clearly you are taking too much with you. I highly recommend this backpack?in this subtle pattern as well.

Awesome backpack but falling apart already
I got this backpack as a gift 2ish months ago and love it! The compartments are amazing and fits all of my needs. However, it gets scuffed up really easily and about after a month of using it the lululemon emblem fell off... I love the symbol but now I'm wearing the backpack without any symbol attached. I wonder if the quality of lululemon is starting to decline.

So disappointed :(
I just purchase this backpack three days ago for a trip. I was torn between this backpack and the Travelling yogini rucksack. I ultimately went with this one because it was a little bit smaller and fell in love with the fabric. When flying home two days later, carrying what I consider to be a light load; the backpack I found to be extremely uncomfortable. To be honest, I had my husband carry it 5 minutes after putting it on because it was so uncomfortable. My husband said it wasn't awful and hopefully it would break in. I am really alarmed after reading the comment below about it being great in the store when it was "EMPTY". I am not looking for any restitution, I am just extremely sad that being such an advocate of Lululemon (I am even apart of the R&D program) that I didn't think twice about taking off the tags. If I still had the tags and receipt I would be returning it for the Travelling Yogini Rucksack. Thank you for your time to read this review--any resolution to this unfortunate situtation is greatly appreciated.

The weight of the world on my shoulders.
I so so so LOVE all of my other LuLem products but this one.
Feels good in store EMPTY.
Tried so hard to love this bag for 8 months but gave up.
I carry my books, Om bag and yoga mat by hand now.
One text book and yoga mat hits comfort weight capacity. Pack is slightly heavy to begin with. Anything more your straps will begin to tear away from the pack at the top.
Was not the all in one bag I was expecting.
I only use this pack now when carrying my tank and skinny wills with nothing else in it.
Struggling student who invested on what seemed to be a heavy duty and backed by the Lululemon seal product.
