Hello you fluffy human being .｡;･+ヾ(♥◕ฺ∀◕ฺ)ﾉﾟ:｡･+
I am back with another Syndrome review. Today, I will be reviewing these super adorable Black Wing Backpack from Syndrome. Syndrome is an online store that sells a wide range of beautiful items. Their store includes harajuku fashion, Korean fashion and street fashion items. They also have a huge category for items with free shipping!
Here are some of my favourite items from their store :
Where to find them :
//the package reminds me of those salted fish in China BAHAH~//
This package was shipped on July 4th and it arrived at New Zealand on July 30th~ The shipping was 26 days. Unfortunately, I was not home when the package arrived so it got send to the Courier storage. I went to get the bag on July 31th. The whole process of this package being shipped and me receiving it took 27 days!
Unfortunately, I was not able to get a tracking number for this backpack. However, I am glad that it arrived safe and sound to New Zealand~
I was really surprised to see how many layers were used to wrap the bag~ There was first a sealed Syndrome plastic bag, then another sealed plastic wrap and finally a fabric-like bag! There were three layers of wrapping for this bag. This really ensured the safety of this backpack during the rough shipping oooo.
Tadaaa ~ The backpack standing tall. I stuffed my teddy bear inside the bag so it would “stand up”. The wings annoyed me a little because they wouldn’t stop flopping downwards aiya. This backpack arrived bigger than I expected, I forgot to read the measurements again oops…
I would personally prefer it smaller. But a bigger baq = more things to put in the bag.
Zooming into the wings ooolala~ The pattern of the wings are sown onto the wings really beautifully and neatly. I am not sure if you guys have seen patterns being sown on with loose threads and bits; those are the most annoying thing! I have a little OCD towards these kind of things. The wings are well sown onto the actual bag; I tried to pull it off to test it hehe.
The main buckle of this bag. As you can see, there are three holes for you to play around with~ You can adjust the tightness of how your bag is buckled yayyy~ The buckle is buttoned onto the bag with those magnetic button things.
This lighting though, much light, much bright. The side pocket of this backpack is here~ There is another one on the other side of the backpack, each with its own buckle. You could put your BB cream, hand lotion, sunscreen, coin pockets in these pockets.
They are around 12cm x 11cm x 2.5 cm big.
This is the buckle for the front and the main big pocket. The front pocket has two buckles because it is quite big. You can fit a clutch in this thing ooo. It is around 25cm x 14cm x 1cm big.
The backpack looks tired from all these photo shoots, poor thing. Anyways, as you can see, the back is where the straps are attached, pretty obvious huh HAHAHAHA. The straps are detachable and you could change the length to how you like it.
I don’t think I have ever had a portrait photo of just the product ooo~ I like how the ends of the straps are attached to two golden circly hoops; this gives the straps more support and they wouldn’t rip off easily. The worst thing you can have is broken straps because the bag will become useless, //sobs//
This is the bag handle of two of the circly strap attaching hoops ~ The sowing is done so neatly ahhhh.
What is inside? As you can see, the hole(?) of the bag can be tightened by pulling the black leather string. The only dislike there is that there is no “stopper” so the tightening of the bag will become undone. I don’t like tying nots to strings like this because it will ruin the leather and bits will start to peel off.
Shhhh, My teddy bear is sleeping inside.
Another surprise~ I didn’t expect the inside of the bag to be lined with this furry fabric. All the bags I own have insides that are simply made from more fabric. This just made me love this backpack a little more. The furry fabric will help to prevent rips, tears and holes!
Out comes my teddy. As you can see, there is a zip at the back side of the bag and two pockets at the front side of the bag. The pockets are quite deep so you can put your phone, mascara, eye-liner, etc in them! If you have seen my previous bag review, you would realise that the insides are structured the same.
Another vertical picture yayy~

Shipping + packaging : and half / 5 wings
The shipping took a bit longer than last time. Maybe I had a high expectation for the shipping this time haha.There was unfortunately no tracking number but that is alright because it arrived safely, phew. However the packaging were outstanding ~ The packaging was really well thought out; there were many layers which protected the bag from the rough shipping.
Communication + customer service : / 5 wings
The person who helped me with this package is Lily ~ She is super sweet and kind. I think I bothered her too much with my questions. She usually reply to my queries within a day or two which is pretty fast, considering that there are plenty more other customers she needs to deal with.
Product quality + comfortability : / 5 wings
This bag is actually way beyond of expectations. I thought it would be just a thin layer of leather and a fabric inside. The bag itself is rather thick, the inside is lined with a really soft and furry fabric. The insides made me love the bag even more because having a furry inside will prevent rips and tears from sharp objects. The sowing of this bag is perfect, I couldn’t find any faults! The wings are sown beautifully. Everything is just beautiful.
Overall : / 5 wings
This has been an amazing experience. The shipping was worth the wait because the bag is just beyond what I expected. It is super lovely and well made! You can even use this bag as a school bag, it is quite multi-functional.
A huge thank you to Syndrome who have kindly sponsored me with these adorable Black Wing Backpack and a huge thank you to Lily for helping me throughout this process. A huge thank you and hug to you who have been reading my review. I will see you soon in another review!
