A very nice bag concept but could use a few improvements.
on August 9, 2015
I think this is a great bag in general . The one I received does not have the mesh shown in the picture for the middle pocket but that one is an older model and the newer model that i received had a solid lining. This bag does not provide any secure type locking system or rfid pockets so maybe not ideal for travel. Easily fits more than you can imagine including a tablet but there is no padding ( might make it heavier). If you overload, although the wide strap helps, you might want to buy those wrap cushions designed for backpacks. Front strap pocket ok but too small for a phone or oversized sunglasses. Maybe could be used for a credit card wallet.
What I liked:
-wide adjustable strap
-good size without being too small or large
-water bottle pocket ( although very tight squeeze for 16 oz bottle)
-side pocket for sunglasses
What could be improved:
-needs to have rfid pockets and maybe some toggle closure for more security.
-Zippers don't always glide easily so not sure about longevity
-Lining in middle pocket is taller than zipper so gets caught every time ( maybe I got a defective one)
- have at least one side zip pocket instead of all top entry ( slings twist around so you can easily access and most have a side entry pocket which makes it easy to leave the bag on your body while you access a pocket)
-would be nice if large pocket had a divider for more organization.
-Needs some updating for a quick access phone pocket that also fits larger phones (like the hidden quick grab ones that most of the travelon bags have)
-Wish strap could be used in either direction
I will be sending mine back because of the lining/zipper problem. I may try another or look for one that is close to this with more of the wish list features I listed above.
