- Review by Paul
However, there are a few flaws that keep it from being perfect. If you're willing to live with them, then it's an awesome bag. I do hope that future versions will fix these issues.
- Top Opening is too small. The top opening is seemed on two sides so it opens biggest in the middle and almost not-at-all at the sides. This makes packing of rigid objects awkward or impossible. Should have used a box-construction (still with roll-down design) for the opening. DO NOT EXPECT TO BE ABLE TO FIT IN A SHOE BOX, EVEN THOUGH THE BAG HAS ENOUGH CAPACITY. A 15" laptop fits (barely). A 17" laptop will not fit.
- Side pockets are useless. They don't expand (i.e. can only store a license or small scrap of paper) and the waterproof zipper rubber deteriorates breaking the zipping mechanism. Should have used an expansion design with a covering flap and water-resistant (NOT water-proof!) zipper. DO NOT EXPECT TO USE THESE POCKETS.
- 100% waterproof and 100% non-breathing. Incorporation of "waterproof breathable panel insets" (i.e goretex or similar) would allow venting inside moisture. Take time to air out the bag (and contents, like soccer/gym clothing!) as required. (Posted on 6/29/13)
