Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've been using this bag for 3 years now and its in the same condition as when I bought it. This bag has been through all kinds of precipitation and kept my papers, and electronics, completely dry. The bag is smaller so I'm getting a larger chrome bag for my commute but this one will always be my go-to on days with a bleak forecast. I'd often fit my laptop in the main compartment, accessories on the interior side pockets, and throw in a change or lunch along side my laptop.
The zippered and sectioned pockets are really nice and hold all my pens, wallet, knife as well as any odds and ends I might need for a particular day.
I will say the con from Dr Snow Stalker about the belt strap being thin enough to wrinkle up has caused me some hassle as well, but still, I can't recommend this bag enough if you can get away with a smaller bag and are looking for something that will absolutely keep your belongings dry.
