I was previously using another lightweight messenger bag until I discovered this one. As soon as I tried it on, I had to buy it. The strap is very comfortable, and it can hold a lot of weight. I use it to carry my dslr camera while traveling. I am trying to travel light, and this bag will help me do that.
A Bit Smaller than 2008 Model, but Still Great!
I purchased one of these in 2008, and it was much roomier. This one, though smaller in capacity, has lost nothing in the way of quality, design, or overall function. Glad to have the sil-nyl fabric back too! Roomy enough as an overnight bag ... or as a weekend bag for an ultralight packer. I used my former one for two years on frequent air travel trips, in combo with the patagonia travel tote. Was able to put tons in those two ultra-light bags...and never had to check any luggage. They are light to carry, well organized, and have comfortable handles and straps. Sturdy and durable fabric and quality-made. Perfect for travel, commuting, camping, going on foot/bike, etc... but possibly vulnerable to thorns, coral reefs, sharp stuff. (though possibly sealed right up with a tent patch kit or the like too) Highly recommended if you need ultralight, water resistant, practical, quality bag.
