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.

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 was looking for a smallish bag to get some things out of my pockets, while sitting in the woods not seeing Whitetail bucks this fall. I found this bag. Figured what the heck for $9, can I go wrong. Even if i did my hillbilly girlfriend could use it for a purse. I however didn't. This bag fits My 1 qt lexan style bottle, my rain parka, plenty of ammo, small binoculars or digital camera 4 granola bars, a sandwich baggie of pistachios and my 3 little tinks bottles. The outer pockets 1 has my mini first aid kit (basically some band-aids, 2 doses of Benadryl, and a wad of TP.
The other holds some rubber gloves and hand sanitizer just in case I do get lucky and bag a deer.
I waterproofed the heck out of it with some silicone spray but keep in mind it is cotton so plastic zipper bags or wax paper on your things might not be a bad idea. All in all it seems to be made from sturdy heavy canvas, and if the seams get a bit frayed well the money you saved you can buy some thread and a needle.
Just before writing this i ordered another one to use as a range bag.

Had been looking for a shoulder, rather than vest or belt, ammo bag for a while. For ten bucks this one is hard to beat. It easily holds seven 30-round Tapco AK-47 polymer magazines. When slung over the shoulder, the mags are easy to access and easy to insert/remove. After fabricating a simple 5-sided cardboard liner to hold the pouch open, mag access was even easier. The practical inside dimensions of the pouch are 9.5 x 7.75 x 3.75 inches.

Two reasons for the 4-star rating:

* Front pockets are too shallow to fasten over a Glock 17 mag
* Original metal buckle on main pouch is awkward at best.

Fortunately, it was fairly easy to replace the original metal buckle with a side-release plastic buckle, which is far more functional.

Update: Bag easily holds eight 30-round Bulgarian steel AK-47 magazines.
