PROS: The Hamptons bag is very roomy and has good quality stitching and finishing. I especially like the external pockets for easy access to smaller devices like PDAs or cell phones. One clever feature is the use of an orange interior. The orange reflects light and makes it easier to find things inside the bag.

CONS: The bag is advertised as being both a backpack & messenger bag. But the shoulder strap is designed in such a way that it makes messenger bag carry very cumbersome and uncomfortable. When shortening the strap as instructed, it leaves slack that's either left dangling or bunched up. It not only looks bad but also gets in the way. What also gets in the way is the big plastic buckle & button strap (used for back pack mode) on the strap that is also left dangling. Also there is no padding in the middle of the strap, so when you carry the bag messenger-bag style, the strap bites into your shoulder. The padding only works when you carry backpack-style. This problem would be solved if BumBakPak had two separate straps instead of one "all-in-one" strap. Speaking of straps, contrary to the company ads, this bag WILL bounce against your bum when wearing it as a backpack...unless you also use the included hip & sternum straps. I also noticed that some of the smaller pockets on the Hamptons bag have thin nylon and are unlined on the inside. Over time these pockets will wear out faster than the rest of the bag. Finally I have a minor beef. BumBakPak went cheap and only put zipper pulls on the zippers on the outside of the bag. The interior zippers have no pulls, it's up to you to make your own with paracord or shoelaces. Come on BumBakPak! These pulls cost less than $0.10 a piece! Cheapos!

The Hamptons Hybrid (L size) is a decent big bag with lots of room and pockets. Carrying your junk in an organized way is a snap. But bottom line with the included strap makes the Back Pack mode good, Messenger Bag mode bad!

I got this bag finally after a long time of thinking about it. I could never bring myself to get it based on how much it cost. But I finally broke down and treated myself to it and I have not been disappointed.

I love the "backpack" type of double shoulder straps. I'm a golfer and have had a similar setup on my golf bag for 10-15 years. It's a very comfortable way to carry weight for a long time period.

I think this bag would be perfect for people that live in a city and walk to work, or to a college student that needs to walk around campus carrying a few books and their laptop.

The bag is laid out very well and the buckles are very easy to use.

Only two things I'd "complain" about the bag:

1) I do not believe it's the end all be all of bags that some online sites will tell you it is. That's just my opinion and perhaps that's because I'm not the target audience for the product. However, I still think it's worth the money if you have a heavy laptop and want a more comfortable way of carrying it.

2) There is no dedicated pouch for the laptop power supply other than the main compartment. This makes it a bit awkward to put the power supply in there when you have a large notebook and some other items, but it will fit. Would have been good had they been able to figure out an external pouch specifically for the supply. But again, this is not a deal breaker for me.

I have been going back and forth about buying this bag since I hadn't found one in-store to look at. After reading so many reviews I decided to purchase it(sight unseen)from another online store since Amazon no longer carries it. All I can say is...wow.

I was concerned that my 17" Macbook Pro laptop would not fit. I was very surprised that it worked! I even have the clear case on the laptop. It is a snug fit, but who cares? It has enough pockets to hold everything I need for school. It has pen/pencil slots, cellphone pocket, a place for my iPod, books, laptop, water bottle, umbrella, etc.

It has 2 different sized water bottle mesh pockets, so you can carry a small 12-20 oz. bottle in one, or a 1 litre in the other (just not at the same time). It has another pouch on the other side that is not mesh for additional storage. It has straps on the inside of the flap to hold an umbrella (which is important where I am). There is a back slot that will hold file folders, or thin notebooks. There are 4 slots for pens/pencils. Numerous pockets to fit powercords, battery, headphones, and just about anything else you can think of.

I was afraid I wouldn't find anything to replace my favorite backpack (Swissgear) that it is falling apart. I have no worries now. This is a great replacement, and it will hold my monster laptop that the Swissgear backpack wouldn't.

I have seen some reviews that indicate there are no directions on how to convert the strap from single strap to the backpack strap. That is not true. There are instructions supplied on the attached paper tags. Converting the straps was very simple. They even put a tag on the umbrella straps to let you know what they were for. This is a pretty great bag.

It is still holding up and he has very thick and heavy books. I hope it makes it longer then one year like his other "cheaper" ones.
