"Great for day trips, carrying on flights, and road trips"
The material of this bag seems very sturdy, and the stitching is solid. The pack when you first get it is pretty stiff, which makes the initial use of the zipper a tiny bit of a challenge, but once you have some miles on it, the bag works like a pro. I got this one specifically so I could lug my 13" laptop around, there is a hidden padded back zipper compartment that is made specifically for this purpose and getting my machine in and out is easy-peasy. The main compartment has the seat pad pocket that works great for keeping documents, and the small front pouch is good for your phone, wallet and lip balm. The flaps that cover every zipper come in handy when it's raining, and this bag has stood up to being wet very well. The two side pockets fit the slightly larger single-use water bottles (I was at an airport!), and they seem to stay in there pretty securely. The shoulder straps are also very comfortable and the handles make maneuvering the bag easy.
