I just got my bag today (used courier off ebay). It's pretty ****ing dirty, but I really like it. Much more comfortable than the chrome bag I toted around a few years ago, and I don't have to worry about ******-bags (such as myself) pushing any buttons making the bag fall off my back. Big enough that I can carry a fat stack of records or go grocery shopping, and with the compression straps I can ride around with a couple books and hit the coffee shop (I did all those things today, and the varying loads were all comfortable). I'm going to make a few mods to it, such as sewing on a little mini-strap to attach a blinky to and adding some sort of partitioned pocket on the inside for ipod/phone/wallet. I'm going to make my own shoulder pad as well. I really like the bag.
