    This bag is very well made of a heavy canvas material and seems to be very durable.

    I bought this bag my last year in school and it was great for carrying books and notebooks, pens, water bottles, flashdrives, and all those other things students carry around.

    Then life got weird.

    Over the past two years this bag and I have been to sea. I've carried it across Europe. We've explored the caves and jungles of Cambodia, and rowed down the fjords of Denmark. This bag has become one of my most trusted possessions.

    When emptied it can be squeezed into a ball and tossed in a corner, or stuffed in a larger bag. It's roomy and comfortable, machine washable.

    My criticisms are few and forgivable but worth mentioning. The zipper on the inside pocket broke just a few short months after buying the bag and hasn't worked since. As one reviewer also mentioned, the forward metal loop (the loop that connects the strap to the bag where it hangs under your arm, depending on how you wear it) twists lenghtwise. This will not cause the loop to open, but it wears into the canvas of the bag itself. It's not a huge issue, I've had this bag loaded to the brim and walked miles in it, but after over two years I expect the canvas to tear very soon. It's frayed about 60% of the way through.

    The buckle on the strap squeaks a little on occasion when walking. It has gotten on my nerves from time to time, but for the most part it doesn't squeak, and when it does a simple shifting of the bag solves the problem.

    But seriously, I've never had a bag put up with so much and be so useful.

    It's not waterproof and not the best bag for a laptop.

    I was honestly scared about getting this bag after some of the reviews...but I chose it because it sounded like what I wanted. I have had my bag for awhile now and can not believe how anyone wouldn't adore this bag. First of all, the color is beautiful. The classic olive, army green was portrayed stunningly with this bag. I have used it every day carrying TONS of books and my laptop. It has not put any weight or dug into my shoulder. It is definitely not too big, it is a normal messenger bag size. It doesn't have very many inside pockets which is fine for me because I don't like inside pockets. The water bottle holder is perfect. I have had a lot of messenger bags and this is the first one I have ever liked! Don't listen to any of the other reviews this product is the one you want!!!!!! Trust me!!!!! This might be the greatest product I have gotten from Amazon, and I have gotten a lot! Thanks for reading!

    With this bag, i can carry one medium size text book, my 14' laptop and a notebook. It all fits perfectly. It even has a little zipper bag inside to put all your pens, pencils, keys, etc. I dont know what material it is made from but i can tell you it looks like its going to last a lot of time. I recommend this bag for those who need to carry a few things at a time. Remember also that if you overload the bag, your shoulder will start to hurt a big due to all the weight, so you must also take that into consideration.

    I've had this bag for about three months now and pretty much adore it. I take it back and forth with me to work, it's a good size to hold snacks, purse, couple packets of paper, and the front pockets work well for my cell phone and chargers. I even keep my keys in the side pockets.

    A few things I'd change, though. It's completely open, so I'm glad I don't travel by foot or bus or somewhere crowded where someone could just reach in and pull things out. And the one side of the handle likes to twist the bracket holding it to the bag, I'm afraid the metal is going to bend at some point and open so that I'd have to find a new bracket. Oddly, just the one side does that.

    The reviews on this bag are all over the place and I think I may know why. I own several of these and when they are actually made by Rothco with the Rothco tag they are very thick, excellent quality. However some sellers are providing a bag that looks like the Rothco but is much thinner canvas and not nearly as sturdy. I just received my latest order of three and the two that were sold by "Campers Haven" were the thin canvas, where the one purchased from "Direct Premium Buys" was the nice heavy, well constructed bag. As with all secondary sellers their inventory changes, so this review may become dated. Please note I am posting on 12/18/12.

    This bag is frustratingly shapeless. I thought that would be an added bonus for comfort because there's not a lot of structure making it bulky and difficult to maneuver around, but in truth it's significantly larger a hindrance than I expected. The bag, even when full of books, sits like a pile of nondescript fabric. Without much in it, the problem is even worse. Due to the lack of shape in the main body of the bag, the flap appears overly long and doesn't sit correctly.

    Another problem is a notable lack of inside compartments. There is only one compartment inside of the bag, with a small, free-hanging zippered pouch sewn in near the top. A small secondary compartment would have been useful, particularly for carrying notebooks and small papers, but instead everything is left to fall around indiscriminately inside the main compartment.

    Onto the pros...

    The bag looks very nice when it's molded into its proper shape. The quality of the fabric is superb, being both heavy and durable. This is in no way a cheap bag; aside from the design flaws, it is well-made, and will stand up to a lot of abuse. It is, more or less, a messenger bag, one which can suit basic needs. If you just need something to throw an item or two in, this will be perfect.
