Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent choice for full-time back carry This mfr's products are always well made & reasonably well designed, & this bag is both . . . BUT I didn't realize from the pictures & descriptions that the shoulder pad on the main strap is permanently attached to the strap at one end. Thus, it is sturdy & comfortable when on the back in classic messenger rider style, but it cannot comfortably be carried for any length of time in an ordinary shoulder-bag or cross-body style. I believe I will miss the versatility offered by a messenger bag with a large moving shoulder pad and an old standard pressure buckle the allows it to be an on-the-back bag, a shoulder bag, or a cross-body bag.
