    This is what I use for a 'purse'. I prefer durable tactical bags to girlie ones, lol. I haven't used it yet to store a gun although it has 3 hidden carry pockets. I made some modifications to suit me, such as removing the waist strap and hand sewing small rectangles from it over the two grommet holes on the bottom. The top grab loop is thin and fastened too weak (for me) because I intend to use it maybe more than manufacturers intended, so I used more webbing from the waist strap and doubled the grab strap's thickness. I also cut out the thin vellum pocket in one pocket, the key holder, and the strap to hold in some sort of tablet, since I don't use one. I have found this Cordura Nylon bag to be extremely durable and just what I needed, as modified for my use. I am very happy with it.

    I like the bags function and all the pockets but what I don't like is that its a sling bag. I never owned one before and thought Id like it but I personally don't like all the weight on one shoulder as I prefer either a small back pack or a lumbar pack with the built in suspenders to distribute the weight across both shoulder areas. This is a great bag though and well constructed if you prefer sling bags. Me not liking it is just a me thing and nothing against Tru Spec

    My husband has been searching EVERYWHERE for this bag. It is the PERFECT size for the tactical and non tactical items. He is all of 6'2" and I thought it would be one of those mini backpacks, but it really has the right size to carry a tablet, phone, wallet, chargers, etc.especially when traveling. Its basically the best looking murse (man purse) out there without having your man card stripped from you. Additionally, I don't have to carry all his man gear in my purse we so lovingly call the abyss. We also ride our motorcycles and it is a piece of gear to have that is the perfect size.

    I really want to love the bag because it has plenty of pockets, multiple concealed compartments, and it's smaller than other "tactical" sling bags which is great for shorter guys like me. A sling bag like the 5.11 Rush MOAB 10 feels like they've merely stripped a fully fledged backpack of one of its straps. The TRU-SPEC Trek strap is comfortable, the molle/pals webbing real estate is adequate, and the secondary strap is much appreciated.

    With that said: the stitching is sloppy and inconsistent. I purchased this bag, carried it once, and the stitching failed. I'm now on my second bag and the stitching doesn't look any better. Other people seem to have had positive experiences with the bag so I'll chalk it up to poor quality assurance. At $50 this really should be less of a crap shoot than a similarly sized $25 bag.

    I have used this pack every day for a couple of months. It has held up well. Plenty of pockets and room for every day items. I keep a spare folding knife, flashlight, ferro rod, pens, a couple of protein bars, a small first aid kit, and other odds and ends and it keeps them all organized and in place.

    I have carried a Glock 26 and spare magazines at times, and it kept the weapon secure and out of sight using the middle “secret” pocket. There was no printing or hint of a handgun.

    Once you find the right length for the strap it is comfortable.

    With 10 compartments or dividers, elastic keepers, loop fabric, and Molle points of attachment "versatile" is an understatement.
    Quality fabric, zippers, and stitching lend confidence in both the price and longevity.
    I would avoid "sharps" inside the pack, however, this thing can really accept some weight without popping seams or zippers.

    I liked it at first. Didn’t use it as recommended and it would not hold solid human waste, found out the hard way it is not waterproof. Other than that small mishap on the church camp retreat everything went fine. The smell didn’t even attract the bears.

    So far this has been a great bag for the $53.01 I paid for it.

    Everything has held up great except for the pull strings attached to the zippers. I have now had 3 different pull strings fall off. Thankfully I had a few IWI pull strings laying around to replace them.

    I especially like the grey as the molle is not overly pronounced and does not scream "tactical" bag.
