I recently returned from a trip to Las Vegas and had purchased this bag specifically for this trip. In my previous travels I have either used a shoulder bag or a small backpack--never again. I absolutely loved this bag and will not travel with anything else from here on out. The bag held everything I needed which was quite a bit--cell phone, credit cards, id, lotion, lipsticks, 2 pair of glasses, purell, pen, kleenex, extra batteries for my camera, money, etc.--everything I needed. It was so comfortable to wear I didn't notice it. I loved having the bag in front of me where it was safe. Like I said this is the bag I will be traveling with from now on. I would highly recommend this bag to everyone.
