Perfect for daily use without being too bulky or cumbersome. I had a huge Chrome bag a long time ago when I was a long-distance daily bike commuter and next to my bike it was one of my most valued possessions, so when I came back to get a smaller version of my old bag I had high expectations. This bag has exceeded my expectations. It's light, it's easy to carry; and I can fit all of my work stuff in it and still have room for a water bottle, lunch and an extra layer. Also, it's PNW downpour proof, which is huge.
