Urbanathalon Backpack is rated out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by hanktothedank from Bottomless backpack When I saw this backpack, I knew I had to have it. Its perfect for people who are on the go since the backpack has a large main compartment with smaller pockets around the backpack. The roll top feature allows quick access to the backpack. But the downfall would probably be someone can easily get into your backpack without noticing. I wish the water bottle pocket was a lot bigger because it's tiny. As mention with the other reviews, when you stuff this backpack there is a lack of padding. But overall, this backpack is a solid backpack and I recommend it for any use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by monkeypuzzle from Not what I expected :( I wanted to love this bag so bad! I had been wanting to get it since it came out and finally caved and bought it. I love the idea of the bag: the large main compartment with small pockets on the outside and the roll top feature but once I tried it out I found it lacking in more than one area. What I DIDN'T like: 1. My biggest problem is probably the shoulder straps. There not padded enough and/or too stiff. Just wearing it around my house with my laptop, 1 notebook and a jacket inside it already hurt my shoulders. They're quite thin which in itself might not be such an issue but I think the combination of thin and stiff straps is what makes it uncomfortable. 2. water bottle pocket. its too small! I was able to fit my lulu glass water bottle in it but it covered so little of it that I would be constantly worried it would fall out. 3. Also, once you have a water bottle in it makes it really hard to access the pocket above it (which is a good size for your phone, sunglasses wallet etc) but I found the opening to it to be just a tad too small. What I DID like: 1. I like the fabric and the look of the bag and it seems sturdy enough to last a while. 2. The large outside pocket on the front of the bag is a really great size 3. The laundry/shoe bag is really big (bigger than the one in any other bag I've owned) and has a nice elastic drawcord. I can see it being really useful! 4. Its a good size: fit a lot of stuff but also doesn't look so bulky when its more empty LASTLY, -while I love the simplicity of it I do wish that the inside main compartment had AT LEAST one small pocket inside. It would help to have a small mesh pocket to throw small items into so they don't get lost in the bottom of the bag. Really hoping they come up with a new and better version of this pack because its a nice size and style

Rated 4 out of 5 by AAnnita from Perfect backpack for crazy daily life I bought this backpack couple days ago because I needed a huge backpack in which I'll be able to bring EVERYTHING (sport clothes, 3 pair of shoes, lunch, working clothes, laptop, etc.). I have to say that I am really happy with it. This bag is my lifesaver. This is a HUGE bag that needs to be filled, so if you don't plan to bring a lot of stuff, you should take a look at Lululemon's smaller backpacks. I have one recommandation for Lululemon and its about the straps. When the bag is heavy, the hard straps are really not confortable. They should be more padded!!!! This is the ONLY cons for this bag. Otherwise, I'm in love with it and it worths 100% of its price. And this kind of bag (but more colourful) should also be in the women category because we always have a bunch of stuff to bring !
