To be clear, I love this bag; I use it everyday as a researcher who can work from any location. It looks great, is incredibly comfortable – to the point where I find myself resenting my Osprey pack whenever I wear it – and has great utility. It has just enough pockets and places to stow stuff. Some bags stuff from packing way too much in, but the Avail nails it. There's a place for my keys, my computer, my pens, my battery, my water bottle, and important docs. That's... about it. The rest is just open space, and it feels bigger but looks smaller than something like the Bravo. It's also light, which is great for days when I can go minimalist. Yay, Chrome! You make things I like! Take my money! What could be better: The chest strap came off within two week. The female end recently came off another four or five months later. Unlike other Chrome bags, this one has no places to put accessory pouches, and it is not compatible with the Chrome keychain, one of my favorite features of my Bravo. The netting of the water bottle pocket is already showing wear after five months I have the white one, and scuff marks are now noticeable.
