I bought this bag 10 months ago and loved the size and space so much I started using if for my daily handbag instead of just when I travel.
The daily use hasn’t been kind, and I expected a longer wear time than <12 months. The main exterior is fine, quite sturdy, but the stitching for one of the internal pockets has already come unstitched. The mesh of the external water bottle holder has also worn almost all the way through, so won’t be useful for much longer.
I loved this bag but am disappointed the internal stitching and water bottle material hasn’t held up to normal daily use. If you don’t care whether things stay in the pockets where you put them or don’t carry water often, this is a great bag for you.
