The price of this little bag would suggest quality, however, the strap on it is so flimsy that I can't imagine putting much in here. The strap is also not padded, so it isn't very comfortable on your shoulder. Since it's marketed that you can wear it as either a fanny pack or shoulder bag, the design should reflect that; it does not. Also, the slip pockets inside the bag are too small to fit a phone; I am not sure what they are designed for. They are also so high up that if you put something in them, you can't get the zipper closed. Overall, not worth the $45 I was charged and I will be returning. I would suggest that Arc'teryx include an additional strap if you want to wear this as a shoulder/cross body bag...and the strap should be longer! I am almost 6ft tall and when I attempted to wear the bag cross body, it hit just under my breast. BOO.
Update: I was able to order a removeable bag strap from another company, so I cut the straps off of this bag and attached the new one. Now, this is my favorite little go around town bag. It is small, which I like when I don't want to drag half my life with me! I still think the two small pockets inside are rediculous, but overall it's a sturdy little bag and I am glad that I kept it!
Just got this little pack and it looks pretty cool. Light weight, seems to have a lot of storage and compartments for the size. Strap seems a little inappropriate for the bag as another reviewer states. Will update after I have used it a little more.
