but I wouldn't recommend it for heavy loads
on 19 February 2015
It's okay for the price, but I wouldn't recommend it for heavy loads. If you are going to load more than 15-20kg of equipment, get another bag.
I had it loaded to 28kg and the plastic on the right strap snapped and flew off, I tied the top half of the strap directly to the bottom strap improvising so I wouldn't have to single strap the bag for the rest of the way.
After another 2 miles the left strap ripped from the seams at hip level. I managed to somehow rig it well enough that I could use two shoulders to carry it.
Re-stitched all the straps at home with more than a 100 stitches of kevlar thread on each strap and finally managed to make it sturdy.
It's great now that I've also gone over the inside bottom and sides of the bag with the thread.
10/10 wouldn't buy again. This bag is softcore, it will work fine for taking the towels and snacks to the beach , but it won't hold up to any serious strain.
Price is great, looks are too but the build sucks.
