I ordered the large version of this f@*!ing bag in the hopes that I could use it for my 17 inch f@*!ing laptop that I haul around for work. The conventional bags that hold it are UGLY and huge and won’t fit under the seat on planes, especially the little regional jets. I can’t stand wheelie bags when traveling because I like to keep my hands free. So this bag is PERFECT. It has character, there are places for everything, I can use it for recreation as well as work. My only complaint is that one of the zipper pulls kept falling off, but I fixed that with a pair of pliers. So, yes, happy with my purchase!
VERY happy with these; we're early adopters, having bought two (large; one for my son) early enough in the start-up program that we had to wait several months for delivery. They're the best backpacks in this size range I've ever purchased. I expect them to last a lifetime, great construction quality and materials all around. The pockets are a good mix, with hardly any exterior protrusion to snag on things and abrade (if you overstuff the outside pockets, most of the bulge goes to the interior).
I see in the newer version you've added a clip-on top handle; I could use one of those, but get by with that fat closure strap on top -- which, BTW, is a great spot to stow a rolled up jacket.
I bought two of the same bag. One large and one small. I received these bags and instantly fell head over heals. My coworkers and family thought they were so neat. So many pockets and extremely roomy. I am soooo glad that I clicked on the link. Thank you for making these extraordinary Effie’ bags!
Thank you Angela! We are glad that you love your bag so much!
I happened upon Anvanda while scrolling through Instagram. Checked out the site and liked what I was seeing. The quality of the materials, choices of pattern and versatility really caught my eye! So much after I received my first bag I ordered one for my husband. Great find and highly recommended.
Thank you Donita! I am sure your husband will love the GFB as you do!
I wasn't able to make a return after 30 days of my purchase, I like my bag, but I wanted the grey with brown trim
