This bag is fantastic, except for one thing (more on that later). I picked it up about a year ago knowing that I'd be traveling for 2-3 days at a time for work and vacation throughout the year, and it's really served its purpose well The fact that it's split into two main compartments and has a wraparound zipper is fantastic and something that not enough bags have (IMO). There are just the right amount of different-sized pockets internally and externally, and the padded laptop compartment is great. It has a great amount of space overall, and is super durable. My only complaint is that there isn't a way to mount a shoulder strap to carry the bag as a duffle. The stowable backpack straps are alright, but if the bag is loaded up it's a really awkward way to carry it. As a result, I'll either carry it by the handles or connect the backpack shoulder portion of the strap on one side to the lower support strap on the other side and carry it like a messenger (also not ideal). I understand it would be tricky to include shoulder strap mounts since the bag does have that bisecting zipper, but it would make the bag pretty much perfect.
