OK, first you should know I own quite a bit of Chrome Gear. Four bags. two packs, one phone pouch. A few other miscellaneous items as well. If you're reading this and asking yourself why? Then I guess I should tell you that my first bag was a trade, and I failed to really do my homework. Fast forward to today, and I have been through it all with Chrome, from warranties to returns and shipping... All the bags and gear I own have never failed me. They're solidly built, tough as nails my belongings stay dry and ready for the work ahead. I am constantly on the move and go where I go. I have taken them through TSA Lines no problem. On road trips, they are the best. Take the Cardiel Shank I like having this one pack at my side, Big enough to clear my pockets of heavy clutter and my wallet and small enough to throw into my Barrage Backpack. it is on me when I go out day after day I never worry it will fail. Have had it now for just about five months now. I will probably be carrying this for a few years until it either goes defective (I don't expect it will) or I go my final resting place. Now that's not to say they can't do any improvements to the bag. Ok not everyone needs a U Lock Holster, I find that when using this bag, I never need it. However, if you dropped the Holster and added a two Belt Loops I think it might work well. I find its shape and design is more fitted to be a hip pack. when I wear it as a shoulder bag it fits weird like an unusual shape and doesn't contour to my back and the strap adjustment bands (the elastic bands that slide up and down with the excess of waist strap are just not the best the slip and come out when walking with this pack on your back. You need to make it so they lock shut when adjusted. Other than that the bag is well suited for me and my gear needs.
