FYI it says "DOUCHEBAGS" on the front

As someone who was not familiar with this brand, I thought the name was "DB." I purchased this for a family member and had to return it because of course they don't want to go to work with a bag that says "douchebags." I think it's poor advertising to not have that more visible on the website. If you zoom in, you can barely make out what it says on the bottom and no where else does it say that that is the brand's name.

Great pack for the commuter!

I've put it through the wringer

I commute via bike for everything - work, errands, play. This backpack has been a great addition and I've been using it everyday for about 6 weeks now. It's surprisingly roomy and water resistant. My only concern with the pack is DB's apparent lack of trying to implement widespread sustainable practices into their business. I think it's time we start demanding more from our favorite brands.
