Not a normal closing roll top bag- it's compromised -avoid
on 27 May 2016
I have bought some excellent highlander products- this is not one of them. The basic design of the roll top has been adversely re-invented with this bag, compromising the available opening such that were it of normal design it would have a strong 37cm wide opening. Instead the opening is restricted to a 28cm slit hidden under a protective flap. I suspect the redesign is to accomodate folk who don't know how to use a roll top bag as it forces you to close the bag in specific direction. The slit typ opening has the weakness that the ends of the slit are weak and prone to splitting- and guess what- despite being careful the bag has started to split. The material and built quality is excellent. This would be a very tough and durable bag if it wasn't compromised by gthe peculiar design.
