Poor quality

By Christopher S.

from Monte Vista, CO, US

From the first Akona bag I bought to this, the QC has certainly degraded dramatically. The first bag, a rolling duffel type gear bag was run through the wringer for almost six years before automated baggage machinery and nonchalant handlers finally wore it out. In the interim, I have bought more bags with mixed results, and as an Akona loyalist, I thought this carry on bag would be awesome. How wrong could one person be? Two trips in (on the first backpack) the shoulder strap stitching tore apart making it a one shoulder bag. Again, loyal rube that I am, I thought to myself, this is just not common, there must have been a sewing error at the factory and I bought a second bag. One trip later and I can see the shoulder strap is going to come apart on this one, too. Maybe I am overloading it, but with a 13" MacBook. its powercord, a qt size bag a toiletries, a spare set of skivvies, socks and t-shirt. my computer and BUD, a pair of sunglasses and a reusable water bottle ... a whopping 14# bag ... the quality of that bag can not handle it. Truly a disappointing investment.


Well Designed Backpack with Poorly Designed Shoulder Straps

By Kamau S.

from Washington , DC, US

The upper attachment of the shoulder strap is not stitched strong enough to consistently carry the loads of the bag. If strengthened it would be worth the price. As is, I don’t think so.
