BRING BACK BLACK
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.

Oversell -> Under-Deliver
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.

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.

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.

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.

Versatile with Style
This bag lives up to all the intended design features! I wear the Cruiser daily to and from work since it has comfortable shoulder straps and has padded locations for all of my tech gadgets. The Cruiser is also great for traveling with since it fits perfectly under airplane seats.
The only reason that I didn't give the Cruiser 5 stars in this review is because the Lululemon logo fell off.

Baby's got backpack...
After perusing the lackluster selection of chick backpacks, I decided to see what the guys are packing. It is there I found the holy grail. The be-all-to-end-all backpack that holds all my ish and a bag of seaweed chips. That bag, my friends, is the Cruiser.
The storage. The padded laptop compartment. The soft-lined hard pocket for sunglasses. The stealth yoga mat sling. The water bottle holders. The special area for wet clothes after a walk of shame, er, I mean hot vinyasa class. The Cruiser has it all.
I mostly do yoga and crossfit, so I love that this bag will function for both. It'll also be perfect for the hiking trip, yoga retreat and/or cruiser bike I've been planning to purchase for the last five years (but haven't).
So, for now, I'm just using it to replace the stunning but disc-herniating and storage-devoid leather bag I carry to work, which is always accompanied by several other bags and a water bottle that routinely plunks on the ground because my hands are full.
Today I am proud to be plunk free. My cumbersome laptop, cheesy work badge, files i'll never look at, multiple lip glosses (sorry guys - at least I didn't say tampons), ear buds...they all have a place in the Cruiser.
So if you're debating this...especially if you're a dude...don't. I'd totally check out a guy who's rocking this backpack, even if it isn't exactly "unisexy" on me. Most men probably won't the mind the plaid-ish striped lining pattern on the inside like I did. It looks like an '80 LeSportsac.
To the reviewer who's bag melted in the sun, I totally hear you brother. That definitely sucks and I hope it doesn't happen to me.
That said, given the price of this thing which is pretty reasonable, I'd say it's worth the risk whether you're a guy or a girl.
P.S. I ordered yesterday and it arrived today. Bonus.

Like a moth to a flame....
This bag is made of a very cheap plastic material that no word of a lie melted when I left it in the sun for a couple hours..... When I say melted, I don't mean slightly disfigured or warped, no we are talking a massive hole right through it!!! I immediately threw the bag away because it was a gift (I already have way too many backpacks from another Vancouver company anyway). I wish I kept the bag to take a photo because it was laughable..
Just as a warning if you get this near anything hot it will melt immediately (I am thinking about electric baseboard heaters, warm air vents, campfires, etc), so please be careful!!!! It is a fire hazard!!! At least I still have the laundry pouch to use.... Darn expensive laundry pouch.... Hahah.

Great bag but didn't wash well
We have this bag as well as a slightly older model which we use to transport our gear to the yoga studio, as a carry-on and as a diaper bag for our daughter. I recently washed it in the washing machine like I would with any other and it came out ripped in several places. Very disappointing :(
