I would 100% recommend the yalta 3.0 to anyone. I had the original yalta from years ago. That original yalta has lasted me over 8 years! The yalta 3.0 has updated features that I love. The water bottle holder for one is great and could actually fit a 32oz nalgene, but may be a tight squeeze. The construction of the bag alone is the reason I updated. The material seems like it will last forever. The added padding for your back makes it feel like I am not even wearing it and is extremely comfortable. Because the bag itself is only 2lbs, you can haul a lot of gear without the bag being too heavy. I commute everyday on my bike and the yalta 3.0 is perfect for hauling my gear and laptop. The updated laptop padding keeps your laptop snug and protected. The added smaller compartments can fit a phone, wallet or anything 6"x6" at easy access. The other great feature is the tote bag that is the entire size of the large compartment can be removed by velcro which makes it easier to carry groceries or other shopping stuff. I was able to haul my laptop and 4 days worth of clothes without any problems. The yalta 3.0 is very comfortable, sleek, minimal yet functional and an all around a dope bag. I will be taking this on many adventures as well as everyday hauling! Great product as usual.
