Beacon™ Daypack is rated out of 5 by 37.
Rated 4 out of 5 by SamO from Small backpack I bought this for an upcoming trip I’m taking to Olympic national park. I didn’t need anything fancy just an extra book bag. When I received the bag it was much smaller then I expected. I will still use it for my trip and then give it to my son to use for school. If I had paid full price I would return it. But since I got it on sale I feel I paid a fair price. It’s perfect for a Child’s book bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CaitlynNg from I highly recommend this product I’m 5’2” and I use this backpack for college. I usually have my 13.3inch laptop, a big notebook, a planner, and this backpack fits so well. At first I thought I would hope for a bigger backpack but this one turned out to be a perfect size for me. Not too big but not small either. This one is also waterproof, and it’s super helpful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dpcope from Great little daypack Love this backpack & considering the red too!! The only complaint that I have is not with pack but with the description......It does NOT have a sternum strap!! Not a deal breaker for me but could be for others. Also...It is on the small size, but I like that!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by dogwalkingmommy from Back to school pack Got this for my third grader. It's just a little big on him, which is perfect for me to borrow. Love the side and front pockets. This bag opens narrow, so not for large loads! Perfect for his folders and jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WesTex31 from Simple and straightforward. I was concerned with it being a little too small, as this doubles as a day pack and my backpack for school. However once it arrived, my laptop, several binders and other things fit with ease. I would recommend this product to anyone who's not looking to pack heavily.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Christina16 from Does not have a sternum strap! I wish I could’ve kept this bag as it was otherwise perfect for what I needed. I ordered it because of its lack of compartments and sternum strap, as I wanted it for a daypack while trekking. When it arrived, it unfortunately did not have a sternum strap as listed in the features. Otherwise looked to be the perfect bag for me. Columbia was great and accepted my return without a fuss.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MrBigglesworth from There are aome things you need to buy in person Backpacks are one of them. There is no sense of scale when looking at a lot of items on the internet. This pack is very nice and light. But it is very small. Id say you could just about fit a sweatshirt in it and a few random items that you may need for a day out but dont expect to bring this with you on a real trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gerlie from The Right One This is my 3rd purchase of Beacon Daypack. It is perfect size and fit for me. Not bulky, yet I can pack clothing & misc enough for a one week outing. Quality is good and the general appearance is nice. I still have mine, but I bought another two for my brothers. Great product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by FUN4KV from Just The Right Size I needed something to work for a day trip. I didn't want anything too big. Just something that was just the right size for a trip out to work with the dogs. This was a hit. Not too big and not to small. Also very well made.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jack123456 from Description of interior I purchased this item in March 2017 in the black plaid color. As there aren't any pictures of the interior of the main compartment, I thought I'd hopefully help someone out by describing what the main pocket entails. You can sort of see this in the front image, but the base of the bag is actually tapered so that it is wide at the back (where the bag would touch your back) and narrower at the front. I think it could easily hold maybe 2 textbooks and a sweater, but not much else. There are not any other pockets in the main compartment. The bottom is made of the same material as the rest of the bag, so it is not reinforced in any way. The bag was too small to hold a lunch bag flat on the bottom (so as not to spill soup). The bag does seem to be well made (zippers work, etc.) and is comfortable to wear for a 5'3" person. I would recommend it for light use, but not for carrying multiple heavy textbooks (lack of reinforced base) or if you have something rectangular you need to lay flat like a lunch box (tapered base). I rated it a bit lower as a result because I think most people would consider this bag for school and would need it to be a bit more heavy-duty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Axl1 from Functional Excellent day pack, fits even big boys. Easy to adjust. As usual from Columbia it of excellent quality. Two inside areas, on big enough for a lunch bag and an out side pocket, 2 bottle holder. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by DotingAunt from Pretty and Durable I bought this backpack for my 12-year-old niece. I choose this backpack because I like that it is smudge proof and is water repellent. I also like the size. I let her pick the color, which she choose the color LYCHEE PLAID. She loves her new backpack and thinks the color is pretty.
