Comments about OD VINTAGE STAR BACKPACK:

Great item, its roomy enough to fit my zounds of school books, only con is the straps, i'm six feet and the backpack still hangs uncomfortably low, unless your a person who doesn't mind that, or mind fixing it, it can be a huge pain in the but.

Comments about OD VINTAGE STAR BACKPACK:

What is amazing about the bag is its invisible outer pockets. You can't see them in the online images of the bag, but they are located under the top flap with the iconic star. These pockets have no buckles, so you can always reach into them without having to unbuckle the flap, and I just put everything that I need to grab fast inside of them, retaining the large central cavity of the bag for items that go in at point A and don't come out until I reach point B. You'll feel like a kid reaching into her Christmas stocking and marveling at how many goodies it holds every time you use them.

Comments about OD VINTAGE STAR BACKPACK:

Good looking backpack. The main pocket has a different kind of shape than your average backpack. Takes a bit of getting used to. Also, while the buckle straps are classy, they take a lot more time than a zipper backpack.

The shoulder straps seemed way too long... maybe I was putting it together wrong, but the bag was hanging off the end of my but, even at the tightest setting. Maybe it was designed for people 6' 5" and over?
I found a different, but still secure, way to hook up the straps but it made the bag fit a lot better but caused the buckle to dig into my shoulder. A few cotton balls and some duct tape fixed that.

Overall, I'm fairly happy with the bag- after a quick mod it fits well, works well, and looks good. For the price, it's not bad.

Comments about OD VINTAGE STAR BACKPACK:

This bag holds quite a bit; I got a few textbooks, my gym clothes, towel and shoes as well as my lunch, SIGG bottle, and jacket in here with alot of room to spare.
It has these great deep pockets that are covered by the flap but that you don't need to undo it to get to them. I also like all the D-rings on it, I'm considering taking it hiking, but the straps are a bit thin.
My only complaints are the flap straps and the adjustable shoulder straps. The top flap straps are needlessly complicated, I guess they're really for people who don't need to reach in their packs every 20 minutes like me. I just leave them unattached because I can't be bothered to re-thread the straps through the buckle 29 times a day. The adjustable shoulder straps aren't adjustable enough either, I'm super petite (4'11") so they're really just a bit too big for me, but I plan on altering them. For larger people I'm sure this wouldn't a problem
