Have used this bag for trips - 17" laptop and all imaginable accessories (USB HDDs, power adapters, and on) files, folders, just about my entire desk. Also use for clinics I teach - laptop (and all above) GoPro and cases. All safe, easy to handle (fully stuffed it is heavy), safe and dry. Could use a few more interior pockets. Been trying to buy a different bag, but can't find a reason to, this satisfies all my needs. Haven't figured out how to get my bike into it yet!Rating: [5 of 5 Stars!]
I forgot to mention: I used to carry my kids around in it until they were four.Rating: [5 of 5 Stars!]
I bought in 1998 what was then its close relative (same size, material, less pockets). Heavy use (shopping, swimming, kids stuff) for ten years - it still looks good. Never had anything repaired. Just bought a bigger bag, they have not downgraded quality at all.Rating: [5 of 5 Stars!]
This bag is HUGE!
I used this as a shopping bag in Hong Kong. Everything went in the bag. Its quite difficult to thrash this bag.
My sister used this in Boracay. Everything was dry as it should be.
You just need to be careful about the flaps as it could let rain in. So in heavy rain, I just attach a black garter and long velcro strip...voila its sealed!
The strap and buckle is tough, you can carry any load and be confident that it will not break.
The stitching is first rate.
You will not regret getting this bag.Rating: [5 of 5 Stars!]
