Durable and StylishDec 29, 2011
I just picked this pack up a few weeks ago and here are my thoughts:
+ Durable: This thing is the sturdiest backpack I've ever owned. If you're used to lugging your stuff around with a Jansport, you'll be very pleasantly surprised how nice and thick the material is. I've seen a few people complain about broken zippers, but they seem just fine to me.
+ Comfortable: The 'yoke' style straps are great and well padded. The back also has a very nice semi-rigid material that keeps it flat against your back, rather than bulging when things are packed in it.
+ Well designed: In addition to the previously mentioned rigid back panel, the laptop compartment keeps your laptop suspended above the bottom of the bag. This is an awesome feature, since it'll keep your laptop safe when you carelessly drop your backpack on the ground. The chest strap is also terrific. It's adjustable in two different ways and keeps the bag really tight against your body if you need it. Also, things like the fleece-lined, top glasses pocket are great little additions.
+ Perfect Size: Before ordering this backpack I was kind of stuck between this one and the Campus bag. The campus is a little bigger and since I will sometimes be using it for school I had concerns that I'd be able to fit all my books in the Factor. I definitely made the right choice. I'm a pretty small guy (5'6") and the Factor is ideal. It can easily hold a couple textbooks, a binder, and some other small things, but is still small, streamlined, and stays tight against the body when I'm bike commuting.
+ Cheap!: Seriously, at 25-40 bucks this is an awesome deal. I think I paid almost as much for my crappy Jansports. And I had to replace those every year or two.
+ Stylish: Sexy. What more can I say?
- Hmmmmm...The only thing I can think of is that it would have been nice if there were a latch to hold the laptop in place on top. Not a huge deal.
AAAAAnd that's my review. This is a terrific product and well worth the money. Unless you're looking for something that can hold 7-days worth of food, traveling supplies and a tent, this bag is exactly the right size.

Great "smaller" portable traveling/ recreational pack!May 02, 2012
By Jason Wang
Great backpack exactly what I was looking for! 1st off let me say that I primarily will use this backpack for recreation / traveling, not for school, for this use I was looking for something smaller sized, with a laptop compartment and a few organizer compartments. While I label this as a smaller backpack it's really not, its just a normal size, I think you can prob fit a 14in laptop, folder and 2 textbooks (depending on size). It would work well for school depending on your class load but if you carry a bunch of textbooks you may want to go with the 101 (which I also have and plan on using for school). But this is the perfect pack for traveling, it's small, comfortable and has a lot of functionality!

I mainly use this bag for school and travel and it is very convenient for both. It holds my laptop and books fine and isn't to big for airplane spaces!
