Study up.

School can be, well, boring, but Dakine's Hadley 26L Backpack can at least make the trip to and from class a little more interesting. It comes in a variety of unique patterns, but has practical details like padded tablet and laptop sleeves, an organizer pocket, and even a fleece-lined sunglasses pocket to keep your shades safe when you put on your "Look, I'm actually quite studious" glasses.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love this backpack. I use it for work - the pocket for my laptop is awesome. The outside pockets are perfect for my coffee and water and have plenty of room to pack lunch. Comfortable straps and it looks nice.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I just got this backpack delivered to me just about two hours ago.... and I have to say I'm already IN LOVE. It's extremely similar to The north face Borealis backpack. I was a north face faithful backpack user but not after this, officially converted to dakine.

I switched over my items from my northface borealis to my new dakine Hadley. When I put it on it felt like a dream because it feels so light! My northface was so heavy and bulky with my items in it (I don't really carry much)

Also, it fit my 15 inch HP laptop (not pictured). It fit without its laptop sleeve but I cant tell complain, it's hard to find a backpack that can hold my extremely large backpack. But if you're thinking about getting a northface backpack think again. This backpack is very well made, fits a lot of stuff, lighter in terms of weight and almost half the price of a northface backpack.

Northface Borealis DUPE!
