If I had seen this in the shop , I would have not bought this item. The material is very thin and the bag isn't lined. It was a purchase for my son as a school bag. I don't think it will last very long and at over £30 it was not worth it. We have bought Vans bags in the past with no problems but this one is not robust enough for a school bag. Maybe better as a gym bag or for carrying light things with no hard edges.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
