I really wanted to love this bag: the design seemed smart, and the company's values are obviously in the right place. But the edges are poorly finished, with pullled threads eveywhere, the zippers stick, and after using it for just a couple of weeks there's an actual hole. Note that the the seaweed green, which looks like a lovely brownish tone in the picture, is actually more like military green. (Also, NB it slings over the left shoulder only if you want the flat back pocket against your back.) Anyway, unfortunately, it's really not worth the money.
I was originally looking for a waist pack, the ones that have become popular again, to wear on bike rides around the neighborhood with my kid, but most of those are too small for a decent sized water bottle or they’re nylon, which always rips. When I saw this little sling backpack, I fell in love! I bought two because my husband always loves a good bag; truthfully, it fits way better on him than it does me! But it’s a great size when you just want to carry a few essentials. We got the yellow and the red (which is more of a rust-color), for added visibility. I didn’t realize from the photos, but there are actually two zippered pockets in the larger part of the bag plus the smaller pocket in front. One of them is large enough to hold an iPad (but just barely). It’s a nice surprise to find a sustainable product that’s affordable, but it’s also just so functional for hikes and other tiny adventures with a child. Shipping was fast too. I really can’t say enough good things about this bag.
Love my new sling bag, it’s light weight and spacious. The zippers are sturdy and the color is beautiful (Ruby red). The strap is a nice size so it’s comfortable over the shoulder and doesn’t dig in.
