Chrome Industries Hondo Backpack
Perfect for petite commuters!

RiutBag X35 Expandable Backpack with Zip Against Back
The RiutBag X35 feels like it will last a very long time so, you won't have to worry about premature wear and tear.

There is also a detachable sternum strap, which can be adjusted up and down
