Really nice bag, great size, but seams are tearing from "lateral bulging"
on March 24, 2015
I've owned a number of Rothco bags through the years and have been pleased with every one of them... until I purchased the O.D. Tanker Bag. Don't get me wrong, it's a solid, sturdy, good looking bag. However, it's a rectangular bag that wants to be a round bag. Meaning, the seams are stitched to support an upright bag with all the weight centered in the middle of the bag. But, loaded with tools, power cables and such, the bag sags outward to the sides... like you'd expect from a small, round duffle. This causes pressure on the seams laterally - not vertically. Thus, my bag is already tearing at the top seams from the lateral "bulging." It'll still last for a while, but I'll probably pick a larger, more robust bag next time around. Most likely another Rothco.
