My wife loves this bag
My wife got this bag for Christmas last year and she loves it. Won't go anywhere without it. It has held up well and looks great after almost a year of daily use. I am going to get her another one for Christmas this year!

Disappointed
I received this bag for my birthday in January. I’m a teacher and was using it to carry my laptop and occasional papers to bring home. However, by May, the top strap started coming loose and pulling away. I contacted Carhartt several times and have yet to hear back. Disappointed that I can’t use this gift I was so excited to receive.

Airline, fishing, general, travel bag
Purchased 2 weeks ago. I consider myself a "bag" lady. I love bags. I have several but I couldn't find the perfect size for this trip from my stash. I didn't want to take my old ' bonafied' back pack. I purchased this bag the night before embarking on another fishing trip to Alaska. I needed a shoulder type bag to go with my roller carry on. This bag was perfect to hold tablet, camera, binoculars, snacks, meds,water bottle, etc. I even planned to take it on the river but didn't want fish blood on it! HaHa! The issue with the straps making the bag flop forward is to just carry it backwards - the label- zipper side pocket toward your body. Easy to walk down plane aisle & pack wheeled carry-on at same time. Stashes under plane seat. The bag also fits nicely on top of wheeled carry-on as the straps easily wrap around carry on handle. I was able to carry it on float plane as well by my feet. I never used it as a back pack but could have easily done so. I wanted a bag that looked nice but sturdy and the dark color to hide the stains fit the bill. I will probably use this bag a lot as it will be my "go to" bag for day trips and future adventures. Could have used a key fob strap tho. We are ranchers & Carhartts are a staple in our lives. Thank you for great products.

Best Bag EVER!
Literally one of the best most versatile bags I have ever purchased. I got it in the classic Carhartt Brown which goes with anything! Its so sturdy and well made, i've used it for work (construction management) and for my dog when we go on hikes to take her food/water and supplied, my airport carry on, my quad trip and canoe trip bag! i love it, i can wear it as a backpack or a cross body, the pockets for organization are perfect. Easy to clean and still looks brand new over a year later!!

A Massively Flawed Backpack
This Carhartt Legacy Women’s Backpack Hybrid bag is sold as an over the shoulder, backpack, and shoulder carry bag.

It is not.

It is only, and that is awkwardly and clumsily, a back pack.

As a fan of Carhartt products I am embarrassed and ashamed that they would put this poorly designed bag on the market. Clearly quality control is not a concern. How this bag passed the initial design stage to go into production remains a mystery.

The bag is a nice two tone color of rugged material. The interior is a striped material with decent pockets.

The bag has one fixed carry handle on the front of the bag.
On the back if the bag is one long strap adhered at the base which then runs through 2 clips at the top of the bag. This strap is supposed to adjust to be
1. A carry handle
2. And the shoulder crossbody handle
3. Two backpack straps.

1. As shoulder carry handles it fails as the fixed strap is not spacious enough to word comforably.
2. As a crossbody it fails because, when you put items in the bag and carry as a crossbody, the whole bag leans away from your body.
3. As a backpack it sort if works. It certainly looks nice as a backpack and if you can get around the straps completely realigning every time you put the bag on or off then it might work. It doesn’t work as a backpack using just one shoulder as the strap extends and drops the bag down.

Carhartt went to a lot of trouble and expense to create a video making this backpack look versatile and usable and, in my opinion, it is deliberately deceptive. They have lost me as a customer for life.

Great except for one design flaw
I purchased one of these for my wife to take on a recent hiking holiday in Japan. Having read other reviews previously I installed a couple of plastic clips to hold the shoulder straps in place. This did the trick, otherwise the existing adjusters won't hold the straps at the correct length. The clips did their job and my wife found this backpack indispensable on day trips. She has now thrown out her old day pack.

Could be a GREAT bag if not for some minor design oversights
I like most things about this bag. The quality material, versatility and amount of compartments/pockets are my top three.
I do wish there was more thought put into a way to secure the straps when using it as a backpack (which is my main use). Every time I take the bag off the straps slide out of place and have to be readjusted every single time I put it back on. Also the shape of the bag make it a little difficult to to fit anything irregularly shaped in the interior or on the side pockets.
In summary, I am not totally dissatisfied but the bag did not live up to my expectations because of these things.

Great backpack with options
I was looking for a back that can be worn multiple ways for a cruise and came across this bag. It is sturdy and durable and fits the bill and the pricepoint! Some other bags I saw were 3x-5x more expensive and not as good of quality as Carhartt stands behind.

Straps are adjustable in length to accommodate cross-body, back pack, hand bag, or shoulder bag. I will most likely use it as a backpack or cross-body more often then not. Straps are not remove-able only adjustable so you have to adjust and deal with the straps depending on how you want to carry the bag.

Can the strap be converted?
A shopper on Sep 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I purchased this for my GF and she loves it! Its like 3 bags in one. Meaning you can just carry it with the handles, you can wear it like a backpack, or you can wear it like a pocketbook (one strap over one shoulder cross body or straight down. We get a lot of use out of it! Great buy, awesome product!
Is this bag machine washable?
Sarah S on Aug 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This style is hand washable.
Can this double as a camera bag? Is there enough space for a camera and a couple zoom lenses?
A shopper on Jun 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This bag measures 17" x 14.5" x 3.5" and can easily hold a camera inside. It is not designed as a camera bag, so while a few lenses can fit inside, it will not have any additional compartments to separate the lenses or offer additional protection for them.
Are there plans to make this in blue, green, or gray? Love the style just wanting a different color.
A shopper on Feb 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Not at this time, but we're glad to share your feedback internally.
Is this bag durable enough to carry small hand tools like a hammer, screw driver and bits? How many pounds will it hold?
A shopper on Feb 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the bag is big enough to carry a hammer, screw driver and bits, but I wouldn't load it down with much more than that. Although my husband swears I put 10 to 15 lbs. of 'stuff'' in my bag (I carry extra things to work in it)it's probably 8 max but it holds up great! One of the most rugged and durable bags I've had! I hope this helps to answer your question.
Is this bag heavy when it's empty?
A shopper on Jan 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Kinda. It’s not terribly heavy and it doesn’t make the backpack too heavy when it’s filed, but it’s definitely heavier than a jansport for example
how is there not any pictures of the inside of the bag? reason not to buy.
A shopper on Dec 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We will pass your feedback along to our web team.
How many liters does this bag hold?
Ellen E on Sep 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Approximately 14
How tall is this bag when folded and snapped? Would it still fit a 15" laptop?
Therese on Feb 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 12”” when folded .and snapped.
there is an additional top snap as well
as top zipper
So, is there anything about this bag that makes it specifically for women? I assume men would be able to use this bag without a problem?
Richard C on Jan 26, 2018
can i use this as a work bag/folders a few other things and shoes?
jamie edwards on Jan 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Depends... currently I use it for school and can fit my lap top, 2" text book, novel, wallet and coffee mug. It's a tight fit. If your talking a couple of files and some flats, I could see those fitting nicely. You'll really like it for a mid sized cross body bag that would hold a small book, wallet etc. At least that is how I've found it to be most useful.
Is this made from canvas or leather?
A shopper on Nov 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This style is made of 100% polyester.
Can this bag still be worn as a backpack comfortably when filled to the top?
A shopper on Nov 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. When the flap can't flip over to snap, there's a secondary snap towards the top that you can also snap. It still zips shut all the way. I carry a thin, 13" laptop, folder/papers, notebook, and a few small items in this bag for work regularly and can carry as a back-pack. Keep in mind the backpack strap can slide side-to-side, so the only downside was physically putting the backpack on my back takes two hands and holding the straps in place. It fits over bulky winter coats with hoods, too.
Are the tote handles long enough to wear over the shoulder? (I can't tell from the photos)
A shopper on Oct 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No. The front handle is stationary and maybe has 6" from top of the bag to the top of the arch in in the handle. The back handle is adjustable to wear as a backpack or carry like a tote. I tried to test the shoulder usability and it really doesn't work well as a shoulder bag.
How do I apply extra points to my account, I was given a code by sales person for extra points? And also a receipt for a purchase that points were not added due my profile not yet set up?
A shopper on Sep 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Please call Customer Service at 1 800 833 3118 so we can look into this matter.
Is this big enough for a laptop and a binder or books? Wondering if it would work well for nursing school. Also, how big of water bottle fits in the side pockets?
Brianne S on Aug 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The padded pocket inside will accept a laptop of about 16" x 12" or possibly larger when not fitted in the pocket. It would comfortably hold a 3" binder. A thinner binder would fit with say a textbook and a notebook all together.
The side pockets are 2 sizes, one holds about a 20oz. water bottle. The other can hold a 1L seltzer bottle, but keep in mind the bag will not hold both water bottles, books, and laptop simultaneously. You could only use 1 of 2 bottle pocket if inside is stuffed as the pockets consume interior space. Also, lots of misc. pockets for snacks, pens, phones, etc.
What is the size of the laptop pocket? Need to know if my Dell will fit into it.
Li L on Jul 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The padded sleeve fits a computer no larger than 15” laptop.
What are the dimensions of this bag? Trying to visual it's size when worn either way. Thanks!
A shopper on Jun 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The dimensions of the bag are 17" x 14.5" x 3.5."
how does this become a crossbody purse?
AM M on May 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This style is not designed to be used as a cross body purse. It can either be carried as a tote or as a backpack. You may like our Style 131221B, that is a cross body bag. The link for this item is below.
