    First weekend out for Side Effect

    I took the Side Effect out this past weekend to several events. First was an Arts in the Park event. I carried in it the TB wallet with essential cards and cash in the back pocket. In the main compartment, I had my cell phone in one of the interior pockets, my sunglasses case, my mom's glasses, and my keys on the keystrap. The only thing I could not squeeze in was my water bottle. I used the shoulder strap and it was very comfortable. I found it very easy to find things and I loved the security of the keystrap while I was pulling items out of the main compartment. On Sunday, we did the Race for the Cure and I used the waist strap. It was very easy to switch over the straps. Again the bag was really comfortable and user friendly. It felt very secure and I liked having the wallet in the back pocket close to me. On Monday, we went for a short hike, again using it with the waist strap. It was comfortable and worked well for carrying dog treats and dog pick up bags in addition to what I mentioned above. Overall, I am very pleased with the Side Effect and I look forward to using it on our cruise in May (and very likely in between now and then!)

    My side effect has also been out this weekend. I usually wear it across my torso, more like a purse.
