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.
It's probably perfect for a day trip, but there are a couple of things I really don't like about using it as a purse. There are no small zippered compartments anywhere, so you're limited to two smaller outside velcro pockets (cell phone fits nicely), and the velcro for one of these started to fall off my bag after about two weeks. My largest complaint is that if you don't fill it up pretty full it looks rather silly because the top flap cannot be cinched down very tightly due to the location of the bottom strap sewn into the center of the bag. This also means that if it's not full there are loose gaps on either side at the top where things can fall out if it falls on the floor. I guess this alleviates needing to uncinch the strap every time I want something inside because my hands can easily slide in through the top corners & pull out what I need, but I would really prefer to be able to cinch it more tightly closed.
A quick search shows many bags, priced $30 and up, that do some of these things, but poorly.
This is the bag that does all of them, and for around $10.
Zipper tops are a pain when you want your guide in your hand on the beach, for an odd shore bird. Flap-top bags that won't stay closed without buckling are sand traps. Flap-top bags that let water in the sides when the top is closed are, well, not appropriate to any electronic gear.
The flap has enough mass to stay shut while on the move. When going into a crowded place where the risk of a tablet lift gets higher, the flap straps down easily, thanks to the metal tip on the strap. The strap and buckle may not be the fastest release, but refer back to tablet-lift-risk. NO one is going to sneak the tablet out with the straps cinched down!
The stitching looks acceptable for a bag at this price point. The layout should keep stress on stress points low enough that it will last a while. The canvas is solid, and not mildewy on delivery.
If you have a tablet the size of the Samsung Galaxy Note devices, this bag is worth checking out!

I was expecting a bit more. Maybe bigger or at least a pocket on the inside, but since it's an ammo bag, it kind of fits what an ammo bag should be. Read morePublished 11 hours ago by Amanda S. Crowe
Very well made canvas bag. I realize it is designed as an ammo bag but the top securing strap (closure) should secure from the top flap down, not from the bottom up. Read morePublished 17 hours ago by Dahlianovisad

Great bag for the price!
Not huge, but big enough for every day sundries, and the color is nice. It's darker than the photo, but I like it. Read more
