"Great bag - however - image is a bit deceiving"
I purchased this bag to match my BF's Patagonia backpack, which I thought was made out of the same material but after receiving it in the mail, I found the image to be inconsistent. It has no structure (like the image implies) and reminds me a lot of the "Baggu" reusable grocery bags.Don't get me wrong, this bag is rad! It comes in it's own pouch (about the size of an ipad) and when unzipped/unfolded, it becomes a full size duffle! It just wasn't what I expected. If you're all about packing light with the ability to carry a bit more on the return flight - this is perfect for you!
This bag has been great for very low-impact stuff like traveling (aka, putting in my car, then putting in a hotel room or as a carry-on when flying). Nice pockets and zips, good size for overnights. However, the second I put heavier stuff in mine (my climbing gear), the ripstop fabric tore where the webbing straps meet the ripstop. I guess that's what you get for such a lightweight fabric. For low-impact, lightweight stuff, this is a great bag. Just don't push it...
This really is a poor bag except for emergencies or as a bag you throw in your normal luggage in case you need another bag to carry more stuff on the way home.Thin and, in my opinion, cheap construction.
High quality. Durable and lightly water resistant. Real weight 232 g (8.2 oz) bag on my scale. Stuffed size is roughly 15x20 cm (6x8 inches). The handle straps are designed to function as backpack straps.
