I hated my old work bag! It was giving me shoulder pain mainly because it was a tote and I was ready for a backpack. I didn’t want anything “designer” as most of them are not practical. I researched a work backpack for a long time, wanting something that looked professional enough, that was lightweight, offered good organization. I ordered a few different bags before discovering Caraa. I LOVE this. I was afraid that wearing a backpack on both shoulders might makes me look about 12 years old, but it's not the case with the Studio Bag at all. I've gotten multiple comments from people asking where I got it, and then sighing that they REALLY need to get a backpack, too. I ended up going with the large size because I do carry a lot in my bags. On any given day, I fit my sneakers AND my gym clothes AND my lunch in there. Great design and awesome look!
