this bag is amazing
I use this bag everyday. It is near perfect. The pockets on the outside are plentiful, and I never run out of places to put small items, such as my ipod, cellphone, candy, flashlight, hand sanitizer, gloves, an extra belt and pens and my wallet all fit perfectly in the exterior pockets with out even opening the main compartment of the bag! the hook and loop seals great. Inside the bag, it is lined, and very soft and padded. I can fit my lunch inside too. You have a web system inside, perfect for small pouches for organizing your items, or use it to hold different sets of keys on clips, and a web systems holds pens perfectly. One thing to note about this bag is it mainly for use on the left shoulder in my opinion. I prefer to wear bags of this style on my right shoulder, but the bag is still comfortable enough that I don't notice that it is more orientated to left shoulder use that often. The shoulder pad is kinda big, you can not remove it easily. The quick release buckle is strong, but it could be a problem if your not careful where you grab the strap toward the bag. Overall a great bag, and of course 5.11 quality is worth the price.
