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 :(

Great Bag! But not the greatest quality.
I bought this bag in September and it was great I could take it back and forth and it carried all of my books, but then the zipper fell off and it broke. So I brought it into the store and got a new bag and now the pocket ripped on the side. This is ridiculous I love lulu and there clothing but this bag has really let me down and frustrated me beyond belief. I must say I am disappointed lulu very disappointed.

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?
