This bag is a really classic and good design with a various different colours to choose from, it is a good size which can hold a lot of things and it cheap, however when i had one the strap broke easily and was non repairable, it has a lot of storage however can only just fit an A4 folder so is a struggle to fit in all of your school work which is a shame so i dont agree that it is suitable for college or school related things. I believe it is made from plastic type materials and is much thinner than other bags of simular design by other sports brands and companys. There is no padding on the shoulders and can get very heavy and painful as the material used for the shoulders is cheap and rough and digs into the shoulder. It is good how it has a front pocket with zipped so it is secure and safe. I think most people just buy it due to the popular and trendy sports brand of lonsdales's name on the front , the zips barley ever get stuck though which is good and easy to use, the bag looks very fashionable and smart.
I brought one of these bags for my son, for him to use as his school bag. It is very spacious and has a big, zipped front pocket, which he keeps his bus money and door keys in. It is light weight and the strap is adjustable so it can suit ages from school age to an adult. It is quite hard wearing, (as my son often scrapes it along the floor and chucks it down). It is good value for money. I think it is more suited for either a school bag or an overnight bag, but you wouldn't be able to fit a weeks worth of clothes in. My son manages to fit his school books, lunch box, water bottle and usually a thick winter jacket in it.
The only disadvantage I would point out is that there isn't any padding on the shoulder strap, however it is like a soft leather feel, so it doesn't dig in, even with quite a bit of weight in it.
It looks quite smart with the white piping, but it also has a sports logo, making it very trendy and versatile for the different range of ages.
The zips are easy to use and don't get stuck, they also have circular zips which is easy to grip and also have a logo on them. They are also strong zips that can with hold a hard tug.
Overall I would definitely recommend this bag to suit all ages and can even be used for both genders.
