First the good then bad for this product. Good quality construction with lots of little external pockets to hold little things. I especially like the seperate barrell bag (I stuff a pillow and some other soft stuff in there and use it when I stop for breaks). It also fits well on the back of my bike -- both on the seat behind me and on the luggage rack. Now the bad ... there is one thing I would like to have changed. The straps for turning this into a backpack are place in an awkwaard position for actually using it to even haul your stuff from the parking lot to the hotel room. The dang straps are nlyon and fairly narrow (so narrow they hurt your shoulder with a full pack), so that goes against it to begin with. Then, for some reason, they are placed such that the bag sits weird on your back. These guys clearly are not backpackers, and the use of these tiny straps is not much good for anything other than slinging the bag on your shoulder for a very short walk. Note: I solved part of the problem with the narrow straps by buying a wide golf bag shoulder pad that I slipped over the strap itself. That gives me extra support and prevents the narrow T-bag strap from cutting into my shoulder.
