Its a great bag - waterproof, tough, quite roomy, good zips, ethically sourced, well constructed. I don't like the magnetic catches - they don't stick well - so I might sew some velcro or botton on, one day. I am also not so keep on how the front looks like a muppet's sad face - 8-( - which I didn't realise until it arrived. ;-)

    The bag is sturdy and appears to be well made. With this though it means it’s not the lightest and probably doesn’t have the capacity of other similarly sized bags. Note that there are no hip straps, which I feel would be an improvement and allow for better weight distribution but the shoulder straps are wide, comfortable and strong.

      Hi Tim, thank you kindly for your review! It’s great to hear you like the sturdiness of the backpack and thanks for the feedback regarding the hip straps. It’s the first time we receive such feedback but we will definitely take it into account for future product designs. We may consider at some point doing one backpack more oriented at hiking and trekking, which would probably include hip straps. Appreciate you giving our ethical Dakhla backpack a go 🙂

    Bought for my son as he is very conscious of the ecological impacts of the textile industry and he loves it. Size is fantastic and can carry his 16” laptop with loads of space left for everything else. Great buy, price and ethos. Would agree with previous comments on magnets but yet to properly put it through its paces. Also loving the sad muppet as in previous comments 😉
