Overall Great Bag
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This bag is a great commuter bag when it's a rainy day. The reason I'd give this bag 4 stars is because the main opening to the bag is somewhat restrictive to what can actually fit into the main compartment. It also only has three compartments: The front zipper compartment, the main bladder, and a size zipped compartment where the main bladder runs in to. I know it doesn't advertise any other side pockets, but after using this bag for a while... it'd be nice if it had some side pouches and other storage. The bag also doesn't allow much expansion/elasticity outward, instead, it expands inward allowing less room to put things in different compartments. For example: if you put a lot of stuff inside the front compartment, it'll interfere with what you can put into the main compartment and vise versa. It is completely waterproof while riding in any rain conditions. I do not recommend submerging it, but I don't doubt it'll stay dry inside. Overall, the bag is good for a commuter student. It has a very sleek look, and I've gotten a lot of compliments while riding.
This bag is a great size. Fits everything I need it to, and feels comfortable on and off my bike.
The only downside is the mouth of the bag is a little small. But once you get used to it, its no big deal.
