Rated 3 out of 5 by nancyhomemaker very interesting design and material
I should have paid closer attention to the size of the backpack. It was much smaller than I expected although I love the design and material! It would be perfect in a larger size (to pack along a lunch for instance) The price for such a small bag was too much.

Rated 5 out of 5 Good!!
This is a Christmas gift to a friend who likes to use it as a purse. Bought the same one for her a few years back and it is still being used. Quality of materials seems good but the waxed canvas does need to be treated every so often to keep it waterproof. It is big and roomy enough for her to carry what ever ladies like to carry out but it is not overly cumbersome. The shoulder strap is useful for when she hikes and the bag doubles as a day pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Androscoggin No overhead compartment hassles
I had the nylon version of this; I was very pleased with it until the drawstring on the too-small "water bottle holder" broke. We went to Freeport to exchange it but they didn't have any in the color #olive# that I wanted. I was going to return it for the cash, but looking around the men's section of the store #not the luggage/bags section#, came across this. I bought it, and my wife decided to take the old one.
This is about three times as expensive as the nylon identical size and design, and noticeably heavier. But it looks cool, and I think it has maybe a little more room. It can carry: iPad and/or Kindle #and chargers#, a baseball hat, a compressible rain jacket, pens, notebook, mini-Mag light, a couple of MP3 players, Sony RX100 camera, wallet & passport, car keys, some granola bars, a skinny water bottle, my skinny old Trafone #I don't see that pocket fitting a bigger phone, that's one drawback#, and quite a bit of other odds and ends.
I bought the previous one because I don't like dealing with overhead compartments on airplanes. This just sits at your feet, with pretty much everything you're going to need for the flight. But I've come to use it every day; I'm afraid I've reached the point where, like a wallet, I couldn't manage very well without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BaldMountainSue Terrific bag!
This is the best purse I've ever had! I bought it for a recent trip to Scotland and found that it kept everything handy and easy to reach. At one point I was even able to load it up with my camera and Kindle! Now, if only you had this in a slightly dressier version to use for church!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChamaGirl Perfect size for travel essentials/documents
I needed something smaller & yet sturdy/waterproof for quick trips (shopping, business, etc.) and small valuables I don't like to leave behind when we go on camping trips. Plenty of compartments for everything from credit cards to cell phone, note pads, and then some. Being female, I insist on great looks as well as quality of construction and durability. I LOVE this little bag!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JavaDad The bag my wife steals
This is the perfect "dad pack" with two kids (5 and 7). All the pockets easily fit everything for a hike in the woods or a day at the amusements park (bandages, epipens, medicines, tissues, wipes, etc.) Even the tablet computer for pictures slips easily in and out. My wife made fun of me when I got it but now SHE steals it when she goes anywhere with our kids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Delving Great for city and field
I admit I have a bag problem, with several messenger bags and satchels hanging in my closet. This rapidly became my go-to daily bag. The side pouch accommodates my coffee cup perfectly. All the inside pockets and compartments keep everything I carry very well organized. I've drug this bag all over town, on travel to various cities, and along numerous trails while hiking and birding. It's stood up to a lot of abuse and still looks great. I can easily fit my keys, phones, aspirin, checkbook, journal, pens, and a few reading books in it. It is the perfect size for daily use without having a lot of extra "dead space" like many of my larger bags.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SHOELESSMAN NOT CHEAP IN PRICE OR CONSTRUCTION
This is a very well made item, with high quality materials being used throughout, including heavy duty zippers (by YKK-considered one of the best zipper-makers in the world). The size is compact, but it still has enough capacity to hold a large DSLR camera and a few other items. It certainly beats having to lug around a large, heavy, backpack if you only need to carry a few items that are too large to fit in your pocket. There are also several (separate) inside compartments that are great for securing papers, cell phones, or other smaller items. While I've only had the bag a few weeks now, I use it regularly to carry a couple of cameras and a clean T-shirt. So far, it seems very durable, plus it's quite handsome in appearance.
