I really like this bag. It has plenty of room for when I want to take my ipad, knitting project, wallet, phone, etc. with me. The red is a great color and I get lots of compliments on it. The only bit of trouble is that sometimes the little latch closure is hard to unlatch. If I don't have it lined up just right, it doesn't release easily. Other than that, it's my everyday bag right now.
I rated this item as soon as I received it and gave it five stars. I now have to take away a few stars from my rating. I recently used it on a trip and the drawstring would not stay closed, you really have to pull tightly to get the drawstring holder to work, the backpack was too bulky even though there wasn't much in it, and I had to struggle to get the snap closure to stay closed each time I used it. I was concerned when it rained,that the projects in my bag might not stay dry even with the flap over it as there is space on the sides that remain kind of open since the drawstring cannot get very very tight. Not too happy with it and I'm giving it away.
This bag is perfectly sized, it's more of a medium size backpack. I love that there is a drawstring and no zipper on top to snag yarn. I have a few Namaste products and as usual,this doesn't disappoint. I prefer waterproof bags, as I very often knit near the ocean. I've been looking for a convenient, waterproof backpack for my knitting and this fits my needs.
