About lululemon

lululemon is a popular activewear brand for men, women, and teen girls. lululemon was created in 1998 by Chip Wilson and has been outfitting women in comfortable fabrics and silhouettes for over two decades.

The company is based out of Vancouver, Canada, and has a worldwide presence with over 400 stores.

lululemon has become a household name and has somewhat developed its own cult following.

The brand has been associated with overpriced activewear, technical fabrics, and leading in activewear trends.

In this post, we’ll review their Micro City Adventurer Backpack and see if it’s worth buying.

lululemon Micro Backpack Review

I received the lululemon City Adventurer Backpack Micro 3L ($78) to review in this post. 

I chose this style because I needed something small for festivals and casual outings. I also LOVE backpacks and think they’re the bee’s knees for travel and life in general.

Below I’ll share the pros and cons of lululemon‘s Micro City Adventurer backpack.

Micro Backpack Pros

  • Convertible from backpack to crossbody. This bag is awesome because you can wear it two ways! It’s easily adjustable and the straps stay put.
  • Lightweight – The bag weighs only 
  • Holds a lot! This tiny bag is tiny but super mighty! It holds more than you would think. I am able to use it as a camera bag while traveling. Don’t let the 3L size fool you!
  • Easy to wash. I use a damp cloth to clean the surface of my purse.
  • Multiple inner and outer pockets. There are two mesh pockets inside and one bottom zip pocket on the outside.

Micro Backpack Cons

  • Uncomfortable neck strap. The little handle on the strap can be comfortable against my neck at times. I often wear it over a jacket or sweater. Keeping the contents light helps with preventing neck strain too.
  • Limited colors – Only comes in black and pink savannah (now sold out). 
  • Not sustainably made. The purse is made of plastic fibers and coated metal.

Should I Buy the lululemon City Adventurer Backpack Micro?

I am OBSESSED with my lululemon City Adventurer Backpack Micro 3L

I highly recommend it because it deceivingly holds a lot. It’s also a convertible style bag so that is a definite win with me. Two bag styles that I gravitate to most are crossbodies and backpacks. 

It’s also small but holds a lot! I love that it holds my Sony Alpha 7III camera with 35mm Sony lens. I use it as both my regular bag and camera bag. It’s a definitely win in my book!
