    Taw Backpack

    Purchased for my daughter going to college. There is plenty of room for all her work etc. and she is delighted with the esthetics. It is well constructed and should service her needs well for many year's to come. Well worth the money and excellent fast service.

    Can't say enough positive about these bags.
    I ordered a messenger bag a few months back, now have a rucksack.
    They really are fantastic.
    Excellent quality, good value for money, and very cool.
    Have since recommended to my family who will certainly be investing.

    Fantastic customer service

    I had the best customer service from Phil at Kovered.
    I received a bag with a tear in the canvas, when I contacted Kovered they were very professional and dispatched a new bag the same day!

    What a fantastic company, great customer service! Exceptionally happy. Thank you Phil.

    very satisfied!

    This backpack looks and feels great, and shipped very fast. Wore it through a big rainstorm the first week I got it, and all my things stayed safe and dry!
