I really think this is a great bag - the material, the size, the design - all wonderful. There are two improvements I made which made it ideal for me. I purchased elsewhere (not available through Outback) a luggage strap so I could sling it over my shoulder. Also, I picked up two motorcycle quick-release helmet buckles and placed them on the existing tie-down straps. These make it easier to open/close/tighten the bag. Good buy over-all but could be improved.
