One of the better backpacks I have owned. The pack is probably more organized than I am. HOWEVER, the zipper from the main compartment broke only 3 months in... I have no clue how to go about replacing it. So just be careful when it comes to the zippers I guess.

BEST BAD I'VE EVER OWNED BY FAR
So, I 've had this bag for about 6 months and it's honestly changed my life. Being a professional musical theatre performer, I travel a lot, and live out of a suitcase when I'm on the road, and with all the pockets, all of my items have their own place in a different compartment in the bag. I especially love the sunglass pouch. I also live in NYC when I'm not traveling and it is definitely able to stand all the commuting and subway riding I do. I also love how the bag is water resistant so I can walk around in the rain or snow and not worry that my stuff in my bag is going to get wet. A must buy. LOVE YOU LULU LEMON.

The best bag ever
This bag is awesome. I no longer am 'the bag lady' carrying around a million bags. This bag has a spot for everything and is perfect for travelling (use as your hand luggage/carryon). I have also gotten a million complements on the bag. I have the subtle black camo - I like that's it's not girly and makes me seem like a bada$$.
I've had it for over a year and just recently the metal logo emblem fell off and the ipad case inside ripped. I'm wondering if lululemon will replace or repair this?

Best back pack I've ever owned
I have had this back pack for around 5 years, and I got to say it has been the best pack I have ever owned. This back pack has been covered in mud and soaked in sea water. It's been biking with me, camping, hiking, sailing and Kayaking. All straps are still in tack and the zipper still work perfectly. The fabric has faded a little and the bottom looks warn, but it is still up to all the challenges I throw at it. On top of everything it goes through the wash very nicely. Its hard to find words to describe how much I love this bag. I will be purchasing another once this one finally kicks the bucket

perfect in everyway
I got this for my husband. He used it for the first time on a trip and he loved it. Says its super comfy, and loves all the pockets- especially the sunglass pocket and laptop sleeve.

PACK IT UP, PACK IT IN
so... I needed a new backpack because my old one was ready to kick the bucket, and the decision was between the Cruiser and the All Access backpacks.
ultimately, I chose the Cruiser because of the yoga mat pouch, which is not featured on the All Access pack. I have the Big Mat, which is pretty heavy, and I think that walking or biking with the Big Mat strapped to the All Access backpack would be too iffy considering the fact that it has two straps but no pouch to secure the bottom. having said that, i haven't tested the All Access backpack so i can't say for sure if there would be any problem with the double-strap-no-pouch design... i just like the idea of the pouch at the bottom.
the Cruiser feels nice and sturdy on my back, and the straps stay in place without sliding (i had this problem with my old backpack, which drove me crazy, because the strap would slide right to the top and there would be too much slack, causing the backpack to angle away from the top of my back).
there are tons of pockets, which is great, and i especially like the glasses/sunglasses hardcover pouch. however, as one reviewer mentioned, the side pockets for water bottles can be tricky if you try to pack the bottles after putting your gear in your bag, so my solution is to pack the bottles first, and then put my gear in. no biggie. i asked an associate if i could bring it back if it didn't fit all my gear, and she said as long as the tags were intact, I could do that, so that helped me to make my final decision.
the bag is about as close to perfect as i can tell, and i am very satisfied with the quality of construction. i also like the subtlety of the print on my bag (i got it in black camo).

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!
