Rated 1 out of 5Â by AnonymousIreland Pretty useless
I was looking forward to buying this bag and waited for the blue to come back into stock. I have to say though its probably the worst bag of any sort that I have ever owned. I am onto my second one - the first one the material on the straps just ended up with big holes in after 7 uses. I took it back to the shop where they were excellent and swapped it for a new one without any issue. However, the 2nd one is still not great. Its impossible to adjust the straps in any way shape or form. This means that the bag can get really uncomfortable when you actually put stuff into it as it then hangs off your back putting extra drag/ pressure through your shoulders. I use backpacks rather than shoulder bags because I have had back surgery in the past so not being able to tighten the straps is an issue for me. I am very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by GymNotGin Perfect smart gym rucksack!
I searched and searched for a gym rucksack that wouldn't look out of place in the office and this is it! There are loads of useful compartments and it's plenty big enough for my gym kit and packed lunch. I've had so many compliments on this bag since I bought it. Im really surprised to read all the poor quality reviews because I have stuffed this bag full 5 days a week for 3 months and it is as good as new!

Excellent polyfunctional backpack that does not look out of place in any of the daytime activities. Useful compartments.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Julieo70 Lovely bag but beware
Bought this bag in blue which is a really stunning colour and great for not only carrying sports kit but smart enough to use for work. But beware the quality of this item is questionable-mainly because I think there is a design fault with the closure. I have had to have the bag replaced several times but thanks to the fantastic customer service from Sweaty Betty this has been done without hesitation. I was offered an alternative but the bag is practical for my need.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Katsen PERFECT FOR MY REQUIREMENTS
Wanted something for my swim kit including towel to fit into small locker. (LA pool)It does the job with room to spare and is light and comfortable on my back.
On the days when not swimming I use it to carry papers get the odd bit of shopping.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Cinny Looks good but not practical
Whilst the bag looks great, in reality it's not easy to use.
Trainers, flip flops, gym kit, swimming costume and a small wash bag are a squeeze, and rummaging to find something at the bottom of the bag isn't easy.
Sadly I'm returning the bag as it's opening is not widen enough to be really practical - despite its sleek looks.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Katiejaneyoga Great features, not usual SB quality
Love the features of the backpack, it has a waterproof zip area, the fact I can carry my yoga mat on the bottom, and it is hugely stylish. However, the bag is designed to have a folded top, but the material has already 'come away' from the structure, it looks really 'baggy' in that area now. I'd expect this to happen with the nature of the bag, but I wasn't expecting it to happen so soon after use. The bag isn't aging well and I've only used it for over a fortnight. Still love it, but I don't think it'll look nice in a few months at all-for the price, I'm not sure it's worth it.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Catzh Not even worn and fraying....NOooooooooo
Love the design and feel of this backpack, but having opened it on delivery one side has been frayed slightly. I certainly don't expect this when i've not even used it. I love SB products and buy many items and was delighted when this arrived, but I can't hide the fact that i'm disappointed in the quality especially as i expected more for the cost.. :-(

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer Shoulder straps of unequal width and thickness
As I mentioned to you already, the shoulder straps were of unequal width and thickness, something that only became apparent upon use. The bag, while attractive, with many useful features, appears unfortunately to have been very poorly made.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Claire00 Love it!
Great looking bag, love the material. Wish that it had a way of tucking in the bit bits of straps when you shorten them but apart from that it's a good sized bag with lots of pockets/ compartments.
