Rated2out of5byStudentBackpackerfromUncomfortable strapsI was super excited about this bag - it's a good size and has lots of great features. Unfortunately, neither I nor anyone who has tried it on has found it to be anything but extremely uncomfortable. I'm a tiny girl with narrow shoulders, but even on me the straps are so close together and stiff that they dig into my neck and cause chaffing within a few minutes. I don't get why the straps don't just sit on the shoulders instead of riding up on the neck. The bag is pretty annoying to wear when empty and downright painful to wear with any weight in it. Not sure how this design made it out of the factory, but it's probably going to be going back - wish there were some way to fix it.
