Ease of Use

My son really appreciates this nice well put together bag. It is well cushioned and has all the pocket space for all the extra things that you have to haul around. This pack was very affordable and well put together and I would recommend it to any of my friends or family members.

Simple and functional

by Charles Lim on 5/4/2012

I'm very happy with this purchase. It has plenty of compartments and well designed for easy access. Simple design which is something that I am looking for, unlike some of the other fancy bags. I like the magnetic cover which offers fuss free access to the front compartment, I would not put my passport in there though. I give 4 four durability because although at some areas the material used is quite thin and I don't believe it is advertised to be ballistic nylon.
