"Received the bag and it is fantastic. It's my third bag of yours and I love them all. The quality has surpassed anything I have ever owned. Thank you for creating such a fantastic product, including my latest edition :)" 

Zipper Backpack - Cuisenaire Blocks (Green) - Kylie N

"Loving the bag! It's working really really well, the laptop and the few papers I need to carry (and occasionally a power pack) fits in really well. It's a great size, it forces me not to carry too much crap which is a good thing when carrying a laptop on your back. It is so easy now to carry my laptop to/from work which I do a few times a week on public transport. Thanks very much."

Zipper Backpack - Wattle Branch (Raspberry) - Katie

"Just writing to let you know that my backpack arrived and I couldn't be happier. Love the design (those birds are my favourite) and sturdy construction - will be using constantly over the summer."

Seatbelt webbing
50mm wide seatbelt webbing is used on the bag which is quadruple sewn into main seam and is fully adjustable. There is also a grab handle on the back of the bag.

YKK zippers
A heavy #8 zipper is used for the main compartment while #5 zippers are used for both the front and inside pockets.

Large full width zipper pocket
This pocket will fit an iPad and other items you'd like access to but still to be kept secure. It has a double slider zipper (like on a sleeping bag) so you can open the pocket from your preferred side (and padlocked if you're so inclined).

Feature fabric panel
The printed fabrics used in our bags are generally screenprinted or digitally printed on high quality upholstery baseclothes.

Side mounted backpack straps
As the straps are sewn into the side seams the backpack will always be quite comfortable and not dig into the hips or waist.

First internal pocket – mobile phone
A very handy pocket for a mobile phone (or pens, an ipod etc) is located just inside the main zipper. Will fit iPhone and other wider models.

Second internal pocket – zipper
Next to the mobile pocket is a recessed zipper pocket. This is great for passports, ipods and other bits and pieces.
