Perfect for hiking!
So here's the thing: the zipper is not as great as the bb 3.0 zipper; I think we can all understand that. HOWEVER, this book beau is still awesome. I take it hiking and it's Seen Some Stuff (plus, my dog regularly steps on it or 'helps' me drop it) but my book (currently: grief lessons translated by Anne c) and my note book, plus my highlighter and pencil AND nail file all fit nice and cosey in here. No damage ever. Not even when I dropped em in the creek 🤷♀️ (plus I like the price of these better than the 3.0s)
