Silly name, seriously stylish backpack.
The backpack we were provided for review is an attractive dark, heathered grey color they call Dark Static that almost has the same color as woolen coats, with a soft-yet-durable canvas type feel. We suspect that it might pick up dirt fairly easily because of the "tooth" of the fabric, so we don't suggest leaving this backpack on the floor or ground if possible. The Newt 15 also comes in a light heathered gray called Static as well.
Everywhere we wore the Newt 15, we ended up getting compliments on it's unusual and stylish design. People really liked the almost pea coat style front pocket and the slim design, which makes the backpack stand out compared to the standard bulky backpacks that seem to dominate the market. It looks professional, and not like you just tripped and stumbled out onto the street right out of Algebra I when you were 14.
