I would like to congratulate Manhattan Portage for producing such a high quality product as your Europa Shoulder Bag (MD).
Recently I was on a two week build with Habitat for Humanity - Thailand; constructing low income housing in the flood recovered rice paddies of Northern Bangkok.
Your shoulder bag performed excellently as my onsite pack (work gear, water storage, first aid kit, etc.) as well as my day pack while exploring the city streets. The expandable body zipper added double capacity during long shopping trips, weekend bazaars and antique markets. Also your bag was an easy day-to-day clean, from splashed concrete to spilt soda pop, any mess just needed a quick wipe down and it was good to go.
Your medium (MD) model was the perfect size for airline travel. Even at double capacity your bag stowed well under seat, held its shape while being stowed overhead, and was very accessible during flights. The easy to use buckles and zippers made going through TSA checkpoints practically painless.
I will recommend your bags to family and friends, including extra
creature comforts like your (LG) Shoulder Pad and Camera Case.
