Some reviewers found the bag's clips and buckles a little difficult to use, but the sheer number ensures your stuff is secure, won't bounce, and offers ultimate adjustability.
Despite the fact that the bag is unisex, reviewers were happy with the number of adjustments, which allowed for a customized fit. Some reviewers did fit the chest strap a bit fiddly, but otherwise, getting the bag to fit right was a fairly simple task. For longer journeys, the bag provides plenty of space for water.
