I order the tshirts and other items to screen print for a barn party held every two years. It's mostly shirts, but I like to mix in bags, aprons etc, to change it up. When I've ordered backpacks in the past I've gotten the Authentic Pigment ones, which have been very popular. But I thought I'd try these for a little different look. The straps were hard and scratchy and twisted making things worse. The colors were nice: I got the seafoam, crimson, Khaki and Blue Jean, but I couldn't imagine that anyone would find these usable. If I decide to do backpacks next time I'll just get the Authentic Pigment. They're cheaper!
