My wife and I saw a Rift at a local store and on first inspection it looked like a great bag. I ordered two from Overstock. I got the Grey and got her the Green. She says she loves hers. I, on the other hand, wish I wouldn't have purchased mine. Overstock's return policy makes it more of a hassle to return then it's worth. There are a few things I dislike heavily about the bag. The flap in the front, unlike traditional messenger bags, doesn't have a full flap cover. I'm talking about the right side of the flap. It is extremely easy for someone to stick their hand in the bag if you don't have the strapped cinched all of the way. Even then I have had a couple of items almost fall out during normal carry. That doesn't give me a good feeling about putting things inside the main compartment. Okay, I can probably live with those issues. The one that is driving me nuts is IT SQUEAKS! Every step I take the darn strap connectors let out a small chirp. Both bags do this!. It's that little "chirp" "chirp" every single step I take that's driving me nuts. This alone will probably make me sell mine on Craigslist or somewhere else. Or is this a defect in the product? Maybe I'll send Overstock a e-mail and ask. So the good.. The bag, aside from squeaking, has the typical Mountainsmith quality. The materials are great. The inner pocket and zippered compartments are great. It's lightweight and the strap is plenty long. The colors are darker in person than shown online and look great. This includes the red stitching and logo. Zippers are pretty good and should be problem free. Overall it's a okay bag. It could have been great but some of the issues above made me go from pure excitement when ordering the bag to just meh after a few days. My recommendation is to look at one in person before buying and make sure this is what you want before placing the order. Robert
I've been looking for a good sized gym bag to fit all of my essentials as I'm a pre-work gym goer. I need my towels for the steam room, towels for the shower, shower what-nots, clothes for work, gear for getting pretty and all those fluffy things us women-folk seem to have to do in the morning. But, I was really shocked at how big this bag was. Taking it around inititally sort of embarrassed me as I felt like it was bigger than every door I tried to walk through and just stuck out like a sore thumb. So I bought a slightly smaller one. Used the smaller one once and have never looked back. The large bag is really fantastic. It holds absolutely everything I need for the gym and then for work. The mesh top is great because I usually walk out with three wet towels plus dirty gym clothes and shoes. Nothing smells by the end fo the day. When I get to the gym I just take out a couple of things and it fits right inside a locker. All in all this bag is perfection!
this bag was actually much larger then i thought from the add, i thought it was the size of a cosmetic bag but it was actually a full size duffle bag, nicely made larger then what i had purchased it for, but i am going to use it for a gym bag instead
I'm pleased with my purchase of this bag. I'd been using a "freebie" promotional bag that was a good size (small) but the nylon fabric got very stiff in cold weather. This new bag is a better grade of material. I like the hit of lime green to accent the black bag. You should know that the green is extremely bright- almost neon. It won't be mistaken for another black bag at the gym or airport!
