A few women whom I showed the bag to also noted that was the main thing they liked about the bag. These are colors I personally wouldn’t think to put together but they look great!
Materials and Hardware
It’s a great size for smaller folk! The shoulder straps work well for smaller frames. However, if you are larger in size you get an awkward warping of the shoulder straps and this only increases when you attach the sternum strap. But if you are only carrying a few things in your pack it’s not noticeable.
As they state online, their bags are just weather resistant. So don’t expect this bag to hold up in an hour of moderate rain. I took the bag on a 45-minute excursion in moderate rain and the entire bag was soaked through. Even the padded laptop divider was wet… YIKES!!
Editor's note: there is a better choice in their range for water-resistance, check out their Pickwick in Tex Nylon.
