PRODUCT: Built with a busy lifestyle in mind, the Fly Racing Bandit backpack by Ogio features three separate large compartments, two fleece stash pockets, a water-bottle pocket with lock feature, padded back design, adjustable shoulder straps and a large organizational panel with zippered pockets.
POSITIVES: The materials used and the construction hold up to tons of abuse. All the zippers are heavy duty and resist spreading apart with beefy, steel, oversized pull tabs. Tons of pockets for storage and the fleece lining on the laptop compartment are great in eliminating the chances of scratching that expensive computer. The padded shoulder straps and back make it comfortable even when wearing it for long periods of time.
NEGATIVES: The zippers on the two large pockets towards the front seem a little shallow, making it tough to pack things in the bottom. If you actually load it down to its full capacity, you would have to be a body builder to carry it around.
BOTTOM LINE: We have thrown it into just about any kind of situation you can think of and haven’t experienced any type of failure. The Fly Bandit backpack by Ogio is one tough cookie! It has adjustability, padded shoulder straps, a padded back area and more storage than even we know what to do with. We don’t leave home without it.
