Fit Review Friday! Go Lightly Backpack

Ok, so this isn't really a fit review, but still a review and tomorrow is Friday. Before I start, I want to let you all know, my husband bought this backpack for me as part of my birthday gift. So I'm still doing well on my ban!

As of right now the dark chrome color is sold out online. Midnight navy and black are currently available. I really fell in love with the midnight chrome color. It's different than your typical black colored backpack. Of course because it's so light in color there's always a chance of it becoming dirty. 


This backpack is definitely on the large side. It's big enough to fit my 15 inch macbook pro easily. What's nice about this backpack is the back compartment is specifically made for a laptop. That's pretty sweet.

The main compartment zips halfway down on both sides with double zippers. Inside there is a mesh pocket and even comes with a separate shoe bag. 

Double zippers are very nicely weighted.

The bottom part of the backpack has a large zippered pocket where you can store your water bottle or even your shoes. There's also a top handle which gives you options on how to grab your bag when you're on the run.

On the side of the backpack is a small zippered hidden pocket that can stash your phone. I don't think the pocket is that easy to get to if when wearing the bag. I think it would have been better if the pocket was slightly lower. 

The straps are not very adjustable. You can see how long they are in the next photo. The straps themselves are very sturdy and padded.

 Here you can see how little you can actually adjust the straps. I already have them set at the shortest  possible setting.

Unfortunately the bag is not very petite friendly. I felt like it hung too far down my back and sat on my butt too much for my liking. I will say the straps are very comfortable.

The bag looks really nice with my darkest magenta First Mile Jacket. The contrast of the two colors work well together.

I've also read some reviews on the bag and most seem to agree that the quality is not up to par. For $128 I don't want to have to worry about the bag falling apart. The straps coming apart seem to be the common complaint.

In the next photo I found it a little hard to get around the strap of the bag to reach the hidden pocket to get to my key holder. I'm using my key holder instead of my iPhone because I actually use my iPhone to take all these photos. 

Overall I prefer my Run All Day Backpack which I have a review of here. If the straps were more adjustable I probably would have kept the bag. But unfortunately this one is heading back and yes my husband is okay with that! =)

That's all for today! I have to wake up super early tomorrow for a 7am meeting. Really not looking forward to waking up at 5:30 am. But at least it's Friday! Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
