Overall I think it's a fantastic bag. It follows me almost
everywhere I go, weather I'm biking, taking the bus,
unicycling, or even walking. I'll start with the things I

There are only two things that bug me slightly. First, I

laptop in the zipper compartment, and a liter of water, and
the main compartment filled with say, groceries, it gets
