"Well-designed bag. The pockets are well-placed, and it's the right size to fit all the stuff one typically needs in travel (the 1 quart Ziploc of lotion, hand sanitizer, etc.,very lightweight sweater, tissues, passport, credit cards, other travel papers and medications, pens, small notebook, cell phone. A kindle might even fit in there). The pockets on the end are well thought out and useful for water and glasses. The locking main compartment adds security for your belongings.
Now for the parts that could use improvement - I'd like to see the mesh pocket inside be changed to solid fabric. I hate mesh pockets! Stuff snags on the mesh all the time, not to mention that it is not as durable as that solid fabric (really great, smooth stuff!) that they used to line the inside of the bag. I'd like to see a lobster claw attached to one of the zipper pulls on the outside pocket. Some people may use it, some may not (manufacturer says it is for "quick grab items." I say, some quick grab items can be very valuable. They deserve a lock!), but it is good to have that option. My biggest beef with this bag is that the slash proof mesh comes only HALFWAY up the bag (confirmed this with Travelon customer rep over the phone). Why not extend it all the way up?!? WHile it is true that most slashers go for the bottom of the bag, I have seen bags slashed at the top, close to the zipper. It all depends on the situation, what you are doing (i.e. how distracted you are), what your position is and how the thief is positioned relative to you. It seems to me that if one is going to go to the trouble of putting in a mesh panel between layers in a bag, it does not cost that much more (probably nothing more!) to make the panel go all the way to the top. I posted these comments on the manufacturer website, so hopefully they will take them into account and redesign the bag.
Overall a nice travel bag. Would like more than one, but will wait to see if the manufacturer redesigns."

"I bought this purse for a 2 week trip to China. The good news is that it is well designed and can hold a lot of stuff comfortably. In the main compartment, I put my point-and-shoot camera, my bulky DSLR camera, my Kindle and my large zip around wallet. In the front pocket, I put my phone, a small notebook and pen and in the back pocket I put small things like Kleenex, Tylenol, hand sanitizer, energy bars, medication, etc. The bad part is that the mesh pocket in the large compartment tore the first day of use and by the end of the first week, had torn clean away. It made getting things in and out of purse more difficult than it had to be. Also, the zipper got a bit kinked by the end of the second week. Overall, it was a great purse with a terrible mesh pocket."

"Love this purse! I took it on a two week tour of Italy and it has held all my essentials and kept them organized as well. The quality has been very good also. I haven't noticed any fraying seams ,etc. The water bottle/ umbrella pockets as well as the protected sleeves for passports and credit cards are favorite features."
