It was a good length and also had buttons so that you can easily get your hands out. I took it to Thailand and it was monsoon it was very good however a little water did get in. It was very protective considering and did not feel uncomfortable.
I got it for my sister for a six week tour of asia and it was really useful. Lots of different sections and helps to carry passports, currency and documents. Definitely a good buy, I have seen others and this is the best yet by far.
