5 out of 5 eggsGreat bag

Pros: Great build quality
Cam buckle strap system is great once you figure it out
Very stable on a bike once adjusted
Lots of room in the main pocket
Built-in laptop sleeve is well protected

Cons: -Laptop sleeve is a tight fit for a 15.6" laptop (which I've seen this bag advertised as accommodating)
-Cam strap is difficult to adjust with the bag on / loaded
-No front pocket

Other Thoughts: **LAPTOP SIZING: My laptop (Lenovo Y510P) fits snugly but with ZERO room to spare. The maximum dimensions of a laptop you can fit in this bag are: 15.2" x 10.2" x 1.4"**

This is an excellent messenger bag, especially for the price. I use this every day to carry the following to/from work and the gym by bike:

-15.6" Lenovo Y510P laptop and it's mondo-huge power brick
-Wireless mouse
-Over-ear headphones
-Gym shorts, shirt, socks, rolled dress pants, undershirt
-Keys, wallet, phone & charger
-2-3 tupperware containers of food
-Extra bike tube

That about maxes out the capacity of this bag. It's big enough for what I need it to carry without being too bulky. Thing has more pockets than you can shake a stick at, but they're only really useful if you're carrying a lot of small odds and ends. The only practical entry, really, is through the front flap, which is secured by heavy-duty velcro and two adjustable straps with clips. The back zipper is fine but if you're carrying a bulkier laptop it'll be hard to get your hand into the main pocket.

Build quality's great -- thick, strong nylon, double-stitched throughout, lighter double-stitched nylon for the interior pockets, and high-density foam mesh in the laptop sleeve. Note that the laptop sleeve is sewn into this bag; it's not removable.

The strap system is quite good. There are two points of adjustment: a plastic bracket which adjusts to set the total length of the strap when the cam isn't engaged (think "taking on and off" or "walking around" mode), and a cam that allows you to set another strap length for biking or any time you need it riding higher on your back. Once you have your cam set, you can use the secondary clip attached to the cam to quickly switch between your two fits.

The bag also includes an easily removable stability strap which secures via a beefy velcro clasp to the main strap at about the midpoint on your chest to the lower right or left corner of the bag. With the stability strap tightened, the bag will stay in exactly the position you want it no matter how aggressively you're riding.

Last thing I want to mention is the "vista loop" which sits about an inch below the bottom of the closed front flap and lets you clip on a rear flasher. Note that it's very close to the bottom of the bag, which might be an issue if you prefer to wear your bag lower while riding -- it's conceivable you might bump your flasher off if the bag somehow strikes your seat.
