Rated 5 out of 5Â by CaraLovesBarre3 Just had to have this backpack!
I adore the All Sport Backpack. I have the blue one from last year but had to have the black one when I saw the rose gold zippers since it's the color of the season. Perfect for all my gym gear and clothes. I'm a fan for sure!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by kcoloraturaacro A few design flaws...
I love everything I've purchased from Sweaty Betty (all in-store purchases in London). This was my first online purchase, and I expected to love it just as much. I received it this evening, and unfortunately I will be putting it back in the mail tomorrow.
Just a few notes:
The bag does look beautiful. The design is sleek, and the rose gold zip and accents are super sparkly. But that doesn't make up for the strap and fastener issues.
I put one small book and one notebook inside it to test the fit and comfort. As soon as I closed the (nearly empty) bag and put in on my back, the snap fastening on the top came undone.
I couldn't adjust the straps while wearing the bag, so I took it off and shortened them (not easy, because the edge of the buckle has points to keep the strap in place) to the appropriate length (basically as short as they'd go), took the book and notebook out, and put the empty bag back on.
Even for my hyper-mobile shoulders, it was uncomfortable to put back on. Once I had the (completely empty) bag back on, I still couldn't move without the snap popping open. And, for the few seconds it did stay closed, the folded top on the empty bag would bulge out.
I'm sad to send it back, as I really do love the rose gold.
Maybe, if we're lucky, this color combination will show up again, but on a more structured backpack.
