My job requires that I travel between buildings/sites so I use this to carry my materials and laptop.

I read the reviews about the quality of this bag being spotty, but chose to ignore them. What I got was a filthy, grimy bag with holes that had no organization to it. Am returning it.

Perfect size for my "take to work" items without being too stuffy or controlled. I need a fun bag for a stress-filled job! Looks like it can handle the job!
The bag is exactly what it said it is. It's very sturdy and a great reuse of materials. But as the description notes, it is not the same as the one pictured. The one in the pic seems trendy and cool, but the one I received has a bit of fraying at the top and is a bit more stained than the one pictured. Don't get me wrong, I like it, but it's just not the conversation piece I thought it would be.
Thought about this unique bag for awhile and finally purchased it as a selfie birthday present! Have been so pleased with it since. Love the idea of repurposing products in a far too disposable world.
I carry this everyday as my work bag. It holds my IPad and books and lunch bag too. The straps are a great length and once you have main compartment full you don't have any problems with pocket gaping. I love that it is up cycled . By far, my favourite purchase from this awesome co.
This is a nice everyday tote. It does fit on my shoulder, but I wish the straps were just a few inches longer. The front pouch seems to hang open a bit, but as stuff is added to the inside, the outside pouch seems 'sturdier'. I may sew on a piece of Velcro to help hold it tighter. I've even thought about some kind of tie through the metal rings to keep the top of the bag closed - using a material similar to the black straps. Overall, I like my mailsack bag.
This bag is even better than what I had expected! I read the comments and knew that the pocket was too big and loose, so I just used a safety pin as someone else suggested - it worked out perfectly! Thanks for a great product that carries history and tells a cool story!
I wanted a bag that I could take to work and travel with. I just throw in my wallet, sunglasses, lunch and ipad...and off I go. I love this bag because I dont have to be worried about it showing dirt and will take the wear and tear that I will put it through.
Outside pocket a little too open/short; can't be sure things wouldn't fall out. Otherwise LOVE this bag. Sturdy and cool.
