Reviewed by Sometimes-Urban Jane from Pacific on Friday, February 23, 2018Got this for EDC (because of size, for A5 notebooks), for intermittent carrying. So many pockets = versatile functionality.
TRAVEL: Unexpected degree of security = I'd take this to airport (unless wanting majorly knifeproof bag). (TIP: Hiding place behind the internal zip-pocket.)
Design allows a deceptive TWO-inch width. Difficult to see in photo: The base has internal dart/tuck - allowing main compartment to lay flat (one-inch width), with ordinary load. (Tip: When need to over-fill the large cavity: first, secure hidden snap - between flap and main section - to prevent large bellow of the accordian-pleat.)
Top-access is mildly-awkward, but not a deal-breaker. It will likely relax with use. Similarly, cross-body strap is not ergonomic: wouldn't want this for lots of walking with heavy-load. (With 6# load, no sign of strain to the bag - just to upper back.)
If this is size bag you seek, get this (if available). Color is a medium-warm brown, slightly darker than the picture (despite manufacturer's description of "Army Green).
Design, construction and materials are very good. Get it for utilitarian value, and expect compliments. If you lend it, prepare to get another.
Though it's not the "oiled canvas" described by other reviewer, I do expect it to "survive and recover from" rain - say, caught in 10-minute downpour and allowed to dry out (at room temperature or slightly warmer).
First time I've seen this brand. Impressive. I'd get other, similar products from this company (when price is right), especially if the shoulder strap is comfortable or, otherwise, improvable at reasonable DIY or expense.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by cannot remember the name I used from Arizona on Thursday, December 21, 2017Excellent style of main compartments. The oiled canvas is a quality I was needing and I am satisfied. My new iPad slips in and out;my reason for purchase.
My MAIN critique for quality control is the strap. It is a poor addition to a well designed bag. The adjustable buckle slips and it always twists. It is uncomfortable on the shoulder. I almost gave this bag three stars because of the strap.
