by vinnierinnie initially a great bag...but
bought the bag in grey in august and used it for a month - the seams on the back straps were starting to come apart (i usually carry some notebooks and my laptop, nothing too heavy). brought it into the store to do an exchange - they were super nice about this.
JUST took the new backpack out as they had to order it online since there were no more in store. i got it in black this time around.
immediately noticed two things:
1) large crease and dent on the glasses pouch
2) material very different from the grey one (cheaper material)
will be bringing it back into the store tomorrow. was looking forward to this the whole weekend and didn't think i'd have to make another trip back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jennerator Bring Back the Old Versions
I have had the older version of this backpack since 2012. It has worked like a dream, and I have definitely put it to the test. Zippers are fine, it has never melted, no ripping of the material, etc. The material on the bottom back side has started rubbing off from the foam underneath, but that is due to excessive use over 3 years.
I am looking to replace this bag, but given all the reviews on here I am nervous to do so.
Why were all the materials changed? Are they going to be changed back to the material from 3 years ago that didn't just fall apart?! All the GEC comments make it sound like lululemon want's to make this right - why not use quality material and do so?

Rated 2 out of 5 by Melhow Loved it and then...
So I have quiet a few male bags that I love from lulu and this bag started off being one of the best. When I first got the bag I wore it on day trips, hikes, and camping. I loved all the compartments and the ease of the bag. The problem came when I felt the bottom of the bag become very sticky. At first I thought I had spilled something...but as I cleaned the bag the bottom rubber part was falling off and was extremely sticky. This is a huge problem considering I am in dirt frequently with this bag. Now the bag is still very sticky and unfortunately will not continue to be a part of my life. Overall, the bag should not be sticky and basically melting on the bottom of the bag for the price that I paid for it. What is even worse is that the return policy of two weeks with tags on is ridiculous! I will be going back to REI to get a better bag that does not get sticky and melt on the bottom

All of my female friends RAVE about this backpack. Lots of storage and comfortable to have around all day.
PLEASE bring back the plain black color so I can continue to rave about it all around campus come September.

I was really excited about this product. A couple things that I think of when I think Lululemon, is quality, reliability, and built-to-last material/construction. When spending over $100 for a backpack I think the minimum life of the product should be one year of average use. I have now had the product for a little less than six months and the zippers have already fallen off, with light use, and the materials are horrible. Don't make the same mistake i did.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DanTheMan Great bag; imperfect build.
I've had this bag since September of 2014, have toured literally everywhere around the world with it. It is compact and light, but still holds a decent amount of stuffs. It has all the little pockets I could ever want!
However, the metal logo button has been bent since very early on in its usage, and recently the exterior pockets have started ripping off of the bag. Now I need to replace it, but I'm not sure what to do - I hate changing to another backpack and trying to get used to where I have put all my things.
I would recommend this bag.. but I wish they used better construction and maybe a few different materials to increase durability.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JPD7 Great Bag/Questionable Construction
Was super stoked to get this bag. Perfect size with a ton of great little compartments to stay organized, and awesome looking too! After using it for not even a day, the magnets stopped working to keep some of the outer pockets closed (they still close but not as secure as designed). Best bag ever if it weren't for this. I would give a full 5 stars but knocking it back since I question the construction and small details.

Rated 3 out of 5 by lovelulu4 Great bag, not so great straps!
I bought this bag at the end of January and I loved it. So many departments for my water bottle, gym lock, iPod, cell, lip glosses and even my yoga matt. Sleek looking on your back. But after 5 months, I have a tear in my one shoulder strap.. Such a shame because I was hoping this bag would have last me for years.
The heaviest thing I ever put in my bag was my laptop and gym clothes.. Not like I ever had textbooks in it as I used it for work/gym.
I checked out my receipt that I still currently have, says two weeks return policy :(.. That's the only con with this bag, everything else I love about it.
