If I had reviewed this...
July 25, 2012
If I had reviewed this upon receiving it, I would have given it 5 stars, but
I've had this bag since around last October and I've had a few issues with it.
I love the slim design, all the separate places to store things, and the bright
orange interior but am unhappy about the way this project has held up.
Here are some issues that I've had:
This bag is not waterproof or even it seems water repellent. I've been caught in
a couple of rainstorms and even the stuff in the big storage area in the middle
gets wet; anything in any of the outer pockets gets soaked.
Even though I've had it for less than a year it is starting to show serious
signs of wear and tear, most obvious being that the underside of the padded
shoulder strap has torn in several places (along natural fold lines). Granted I
use this bag almost every day but rarely does it have anything heavy (I've put
my netbook in it 3x, otherwise the heaviest thing in it is my wallet. I have not
overstuffed). Also I'e had other messenger bags (primarily Timbuk2) for several
years that didn't show any wear and tear other than some dirt. These bags are
roughly in the same price range so I expected them to hold up better.
