    Is it worth the £88?

    Only 2 pockets
    Uncomfortable straps
    Does a laptop even fit in that?

    Why spend £88 when you can get a better bag at 1/4 of the price

    You can find much better/more practical bags for much less money... you would not be able to put much in this before the straps broke, and it would be difficult to fit a laptop and books in it.

    Sports direct have some great deals on Karrimor backpacks right now, which would probably last a bit longer... The one I ordered for 2nd year just arrived and I'm very happy with it. It's about £18 for a pretty large and sturdy one, and you may be able to find similar deals on amazon.

    That thing is £88 and has only 1 logo on it? I got my bag for £20.

    Karrimor don't look that good tbh. Do you think this is better: (it fits a 15" laptop) https://www.amazon.co.uk/Herschel-Su...schel+pop+quiz

    If you're looking more for a certain style of bag rather than how much it can fit/how long it will last, sure. I personally wouldn't pay that kind of price, but if you like the style then go for it.

    It seems quite expensive for £88, I would recommend getting a cheaper bag for university.

    What's with you choosing 10 pound bags for 50+?

    Bit expensive. You can get better bags for cheaper and I'd go for cheaper since I'm on a budget

    but I want it because of durability, its a reliable brand and I hope it lasts for ages... I had a kanken in oxblood like a crimson colour and it lasted sooo long like 3 years but it needs to be handled gently lol don't bang it on walls whilst rushing for classes like I did! I have a netbook and it fitted well

    Personally, I wouldn't wear that cos I like side bags better and it's hella pricey for somewhere like school :/ I like the colour and it is nice. But then again what do I know? I dress like literal trash.
