This backpack provides way more protective coverage than other competitors and is the most functional backpack available. It has tons of room for storage and lots of packets and compartments, It even has two very large adjustable water bottle holders which come in very handy when out and about with the family. I am a 6ft 3in 300lb man and this backpack fits great. I bought one for me, one for my wife to use as a diaper bag, and one for my Mom for mothers day. My Mom is a social worker who does home visits in sketchy areas, needles to say she loves it. I will definitely be getting more when Christmas time comes around.
