My Product Review
This is a great day bag for light duty use. We first made use of it in San Francisco when venturing around Golden Gate Park and along the coast. It packs very well and offers the basic features of a backpack, complete with water bottle holder, additional pockets and adjustable straps. A great bag for carrying around small, lightweight items (snacks, a change of clothes, etc.). However, I would not recommend it for carrying any heavier items as the straps tend to cut into your chest/under arms (at least in the summer when you have less clothing on for padding). As you can tell by the pictures below, the straps are quite thin and they tend to chafe when they make contact with skin. Even carrying a water bottle with a few items inside the bag might pose an issue. We mostly used the water bottle holder for sunglasses, as the weight of the water bottle made the straps uncomfortable.
