This backpack is exactly what you would expect from Marmot. It is well-made and very attractive. The padded section that is against your back serves a dual purpose. It feels good against your back, plus...when you take off the backpack and set it down, it stays upright. The shoulder straps automatically tighten the opening of the backpack when you put it on your back. ....very clever design. I really love this backpack! ....highly recommended!

This is my go to everyday bag! It's got two zipper areas, which is just enough to keep your small important things in order. The main compartment has a large capacity perfect for grocery shopping, going to the pool or library, etc. The material is extremely durable and holds up well in weather. I look the versatility and practicality of the bag. Its quick and easy to open and find what you need and heading out is as quick as picking up the bag and putting it on. It stays closed extremely well and keeps all of your belongings dry and safe. Way to go Marmot, being simple pays off!

I had been looking for a basic, no-fuss bag that could be used over the shoulder or as a back pack. The straps are comfortable as a back pack and easily adjusted. I like the firm back of the back because it keeps the bag upright and open to make it easy to access inside without collapsing into a heap. There is no top closure, but the fact the straps pull the top closed is all I need. The two zip pockets are wide and deep. I've used the bag while running errands and when I walk to the grocery store. Great bag.

Great size - not too bulky, but not small either. A beefed up version of the cheapo cinch bag. Can be a great gym bag or works well as a reusable grocery bag too! My husband and I love them - thank you Marmot and STP!
“Would this be a bag to use for shopping and using a bike for transportation? Looking for a bag for my daughter to use for grocery shopping, kids' stuff at the beach or going to swim lessons, but needs to be able to strap it on her back and ride her bike in DC traffic...will this do the job?”
