The construction of the bag is great. The Cordura fabric feels durable, and the stitching is seamless. I've been hunting for loose strings or ends, but so far no luck. The main compartment is also lightly padded, as shown in the pictures. If you keep a small laptop or tablet in there, it won't survive a multi-story fall, but it'll keep it protected if you are prone to banging into anything that can qualify as an obstacle.
I keep the shoulder strap inside the bag as well. When I go to work, I carry a larger duffel-cooler bag, and this carry pouch slips inside well, even in the largest size. If I go somewhere during my lunch break, I don't want to haul my entire duffel-cooler bag, so I can just take the shoulder strap out and convert the carry pouch into a shoulder bag. Easy!
I will advise that this does NOT seem to be designed to be a giant dump bag that'll carry your entire house and beyond. It appears to be designed to be slim and organize your everyday items in an easy-to-access manner. Also the rings to clip your shoulder strap to appear to be plastic, which makes me wonder if they'll break at some point, but that's not a huge issue--I can always replace them with some metal keyrings if that happens.
UPDATE: Downgraded to four stars because after a few months of use, I've found that carrying pens in the front pockets is not secure, and they get lost easily. Don't put any valuable pens up front! Try to keep them in a case.
The size is on a smaller side but I can easily carry:
- Iphone 5c (it fits nicely inside one of the pockets
- wallet (fits in the main pocket)
- chapstick, sunscreen, watch, notebook
I could carry a few more smaller items but it might be too bulky.
The main pockets aren't expandable, so anything more than a laptop and/or a couple sketchpads will tighten it up so the secondary pockets can't be used for much other than a coiled USB cable. The pencil pouches can hold a decent amount though. A Lihit Lab "slim pencil case" fits perfectly into the far right pouch even with the main pocket stuffed full. It's definitely a "light duty" bag capacity-wise (a slim briefcase alternative rather than a school pack or messenger bag alternative), but well made, so if your needs are simple/minimalist, this is a great value.
It doesn't come with any straps. Since mine was olive green, I bought one of these straps:
and that's worked out really well. If that link doesn't show up, search Amazon for "Condor Outdoor Shoulder Strap Color- Od Green".
When using with a strap, the D-rings on the bag tend to rotate sideways in their cloth loops. This is the only real flaw I've experienced with the bag, and it's not structurally critical, just a little OCD-triggering. Might shorten the life of the loop stitching in the long run, but they're not showing any signs of stress on mine yet.
