Review- Go Lightly Backpack Mesh Mini Jaded

July 16, 2017

A few months ago, I ordered the regular sized Go Lightly Backpack and returned it after seeing it was too big for my small frame. When a mini version came out, it looked super cute on the model so I wanted to give it try. The size of this bag is 13.5 inches high, 9 inches wide and 5 inches deep. From the side, the backpack looks small, especially when it isn't stuffed full with things. From the back however, it still looks like a regular sized backpack on me. (For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches tall.) 

The outside of the bag is entirely mesh and overall a very lightweight bag. There is a two way zipper and inside there's a pocket to hold a water bottle. I use S'well bottles and was pretty excited about this. However, the opening is very tight with not a lot of stretch to it. I actually had a hard time slipping my regular size (17oz bottle) in it. But once I did manage to slip the bottle in, the fit was perfect. 

The bag is very well made. The bottom of the bag is lined with a faux leather material that is pliable but seems like it would also be durable. The bottom of the bag also has a zipper that opens up to a large pocket to stow a pair of sneakers. 

The straps are adjustable and as you can see here, I have it set to the shortest length possible. The bag also has a hidden pocket to hold your cell phone or wallet. 

 Overall, it's a very well made bag but I decided to return it since it wasn't as small as I thought it would be and I already have a couple of other backpacks around the same size so I didn't need another. If it were maybe 2/3 of the size I may have kept it. I'm on the smaller end of the height spectrum so it just doesn't seem "mini" to me at all.
