Comfort, Beauty, Craftsmanship
I've had my Studio 2 bag for about a month now and have primarily used it as my work bag. So far, I'm very pleased with it! I carry quite a lot of stuff with me every day and even when I cram my Caraa full, it is feather-light on my back. As someone with fibromyalgia, comfort is extremely important to me when it comes to everyday bags. It's an added bonus that this bag is so gorgeous because trying to find a bag that's both work appropriate and ergonomic is like a wild goose chase. If you're a fellow chronic pain warrior, I can assure you that the Studio 2 bag won't exacerbate your back pain.
I do want to note, though, that you shouldn't use the duffel strap with this bag if you plan on filling it with heavy items (such as a large water bottle and laptop, etc.) because the weight will just cause the adjustable strap to stretch out and start to hurt your shoulder. It's best to use this bag as a duffel only if you plan on taking it to the gym (or any other situation where you're filling it with lightweight things like your tennis shoes and a change of clothes). That is one of my only criticisms of this bag: because the fabric on the adjustable straps is so silky smooth, it is hard to get them to stay in place once you've adjusted them to a comfortable length. The backpack straps are less finicky, but the duffel strap is unreliable in that sense. For every day use, I leave the duffel strap at home.
That being said, I want to sing Caraa's praises for their stunning…
