This is not my first Tough Traveler purchase. However I was set on buying a different brand bag but they had pulled production off my favorite color (black), so I decided to look around. I wanted an EDC bag with more room, but not a lot of additional weight. This is a sturdy bag that weighs very little and gives you just enough basic organization. This has proven to be a much better choice than the one I had been considering. Made well, water resistant, and is completely capable of being used daily without falling apart.
Update: I've been using this practically everyday and I like it more. It's very unpretentious, practical and works really great for my mix of notepad, tablet, and traditional books.
This bag is fantastic for so many reasons. I bought this before I went to Ireland so that I wouldn't need to carry a purse. It's a wonderful carry-all and it's not cumbersome. It can hold books/magazines up to 11in h x7in w in the large interior pocket. I would recommend anyone, regardless of your lifestyle, to use this. Worth every cent, plus it's made in the USA and the company will repair the bag should you have wear n' tear.

"“I've got a 30 year-old duffel bag and a 2 year-old backpack. The name tells you what you're getting. These products are tanks. The duffel has been across the world and is in perfect condition. It may seem pricey, but when it lasts 30 years, it is a bargain!“—Michael Alowitz, Google Review
