Reviewers don't like these things

  • A user remarked that the straps that hold the flap down have hooks instead of buckles; the hooks tend to come loose rather easily and this leads to the flap being loose and not strapped down half of the time.
  • Another user thought that the bag's pockets on the main interior are hard to access when the bag is full though.
