My first of these backpacks broke in 2 weeks. After returning and thinking it to be a fluke, the second back broke in the same exact location. The top compartment seams are barely glued together, with no reinforcement. If you plan on accessing your laptop, or storing anything in the top, this will likely break the seams, and render the top compartment useless.
I really wish this part didnt break, as I love the bag otherwise, but for the price, is not ok for it to break so quickly
