While the Dadgear Collegiate University of Georgia Backpack looks like just an ordinary backpack, it is anything but! I purchased mine at the beginning of my freshman year at college. I am a senior now and am still using the same backpack. While this backpack would be good for high school students and adequate for hiking, it really stands out in the college setting. Product Description The Dadgear Collegiate University of Georgia Backpack is a larger black backpack. It is ideal for those who are not trying to attract too much attention to themselves. There are two main large pockets. They are ideal for carrying multiple textbooks and binders around. There are two pouches on either side that readily fit most water bottles. Several pockets are located on the front of the backpack. These are ideal for storing your calculator and extra pencils. Criteria One of the main qualities I as a college student look for in my backpack is durability. Will it last being heavily used each day? This is the most durable backpack I have owned. As previously stated, I have use the same backpack for the past three years and it is still good as new. The arm straps are made out of thick heavy material that can support a lot of weight throughout the day. Even the small strap at the top can hold a lot of weight if the backpack is hung on a hook. I have used the Dadgear Collegiate University of Georgia Backpack with up to three textbooks in it at once and have seen no sign of the strap tearing. While the price might seem a little high, it is middle of the road as far as backpacks go. For the quality of product you are receiving it is a great deal.
