Customer Reviews

It is just the right size, not too big or too small.
Darren K
After a few months, the end of the closure strap began to fray, making it that much more difficult to close it.
Cara Drake
Nice sturdy bag made of what appears to be strong material.

The hot issue with this canvas bag seems to be size. I don't have any measuring tape on me, but from rough estimate 12x9(or10)x5. It's small. I'd compare it to the small dickies messenger bags also found on amazon. The one major plus of this bag is it's thickness. Mine usually has three or four thin traveling books, two steno pads, and one fairly thick book on Emily Dickenson. And still have room in the main compartment for misc thumbdrives, mp3 player, and blackberry. I have one of the dickies bags, and i could barely fit a couple steno pads before the thing appeared overfilled. It's perfect for daily use, if you don't carry a laptop or full size note pad. The construction has kept up with a couple months of hard abusive daily carrying and commuting.

I suppose all the previous negetive reviews came from people expecting something bigger. It's definately small, but some how fits a lot of what I need day to day without resorting to a cumbersome full-sized messenger bag. The durability matched with it's minimalist size definately makes this bag worth all 5 stars in my opinion.

It's a shame that the critical reviewers were commenting on a listing error in the bag dimensions rather than the bag itself -- which totally rocks. For $8 or so you can do a lot worse for a handy little day pack type shoulder bag you can throw a sketchbook, a couple of pens, an iPod, cell phone and wallet into and hit the galleries. The bags were meant for carrying ammunition in Iraq while being shot at so it's a fairly sturdy canvas construction with a nice tongue close hitch to keep the flap down & the weather out of your stuff.

I wish there were internal pockets or maybe an extra zippered pouch, but it serves the purpose of an inexpensive little personal carrying solution when you don't need a whole backpack but would rather not stuff your pockets like some kind of a dork. It's got a cool urban military jib to it's cut too that's something more interesting than an anonymous Office Max commuter bag, which is what I was replacing. This would actually make a great little inexpensive and USEFUL gift for that alternative minded young lady who thinks purses are for sissies, or the young punker scene guy who needs someplace to carry his iPod and couple of books, if he reads books. The black color is actually quite tasteful too.

If you need something bigger than that try the M-51 engineer's bag, which will hold a laptop but was about twice as big as what I needed.

First, let me get the dimensions out of the way. The official measurements of the bag are 10" x 8" x 3.5". It's 100% cotton and made in India. It seems to be a very sturdy bag. I pulled and stretched it every which way, and it didn't pop a seam or tear in two. The strap is long enough to wear the bag at my hip and could go lower (I'm of average height).

The mechanism that holds the main compartment closed does take some effort to open and close. But it's secure, and can be left undone if you're going to be going in and out of the bag frequently. The main flap also overlaps the front velcro pockets a bit. Those front pockets are very slim, and can't store much. But the main compartment fits more than I thought it would.

All thing considered, this is a good bag. And a great bag, when you consider the price.

The bag is 9.5 x 8 x 4 (measure the panels). When flat the bag might be 11 x 9 x 4, but not with stuff in it. If the bag were the size advertised, a piece of 11 x 8.5 paper would fit in without folding - but it can't be done. With that out of the way...

I've been looking to downsize what I carry. The latest laptop bag I have is big and bulky. I now have an IPad which is far less bulky than the laptop I had, and the bag I used was cumbersome. Although this bag is a little smaller than I thought it would be, the IPad fits in along with the notebook I carry. I have gotten rid of a lot of extra things that I carried in my laptop bag (only because it had the extra room).

This bag is pretty rugged - I haven't seen any of the flaws that others have written about. The front pockets store small things - I haven't had a problem with the velcro opening on me, but the pockets are small and care has to be taken when putting stuff in. The only add-on I would have liked to see would have been a small zippered pocket on the inside.

I will be using the bag regularly, only using the larger bag for times when I need to carry files around. It is a good product for the price - just be aware of the true size.

I have no complaints with this bag. It's made out of stiff canvas, which relaxes in time, but largely remains rather rigid. That's something that I like about the bag, though, so I can't deduct any points for it. It's rather small, but you can tell that from its dimensions. I like the size. I can fit 3 -4 books in the bag, which is the reason I wear it. I think the best part about the bag is that I don't look like a woman when I'm wearing it. That's important to me.
