Boy did this bag grow on me. I did my homework prior to purchasing and had some concerns with the chunky size of it, however I'm very pleased with the purchase, especially at the sale price. I use this primarily for business trips that are no more than 4 days w/o any issue. I love the quality and feel of the materials, the zips are solid and straps are comfortable. I added a water bottle to one of the front straps with a carabiner and cinched it tight with the compression straps - it looks decent and does the trick. My only real gripe is the top handle being attached to the shoulder straps which disappears when they are zipped up. If another version of this bag is released I hope they add a top handle to the bag itself like the ones on the side.
