I think this is a great pack. Works super well, and is well made. It is definitely a little larger than it seems (at least via the website). I expected something the equivalent of a fanny pack, but in a shoulder sling variety. It is more like a full-on messenger bag - both functionally in how it rests on your shoulder/back, and based on size. I had planned on using this for a simple around town-type daypack, but the goal now is to use it on the bike.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
