IMO, only useful if transporting valuable items
on 19 February 2009
I purchased this item for a backpacking trip in eastern Europe. It was actually stolen during that trip (not due to any product flaws, I wasn't using it at the time!) and I would never consider purchasing another. It is weighty, and I found it time-consuming and awkward to use. Once in use, it must be removed in order to access the contents of your pack.
If I carried a lot of valuables in my pack, I might find this item useful. But as I do not, it was just an extra weight and a nuisance.
