Great bag for the money!
This is a great bag for the money! I didn't realize how great a buy it was until I saw a friend of mine with a purse with the exact same layout (down to the external pockets and the drawstring) that I guarantee she paid at least three times as much for! Plus, this is definitely more my style! I've had several people notice the bag in my car and ask me what it was and where I got it - the navy blue color of it is really distinctive! The bag's straps are made out of what seems to be the same material a car's seatbelt is made out of, and definitely looks tough! As well, there's straps attached to the bottom of the bag's top flap - I've used them to store a rolled-up pair of jeans when I was using this as an overnight bag, but it seems like it's designed for a sleeping roll.
The drawstring doesn't come with a cinch, but that's not a really big deal as long as you know how to tie a slipknot.
(As an aside, apparently there are several types of patches with the civil defense emblem - mine was a piece of fabric with the design on it as opposed to the thicker patch pictured. This bag is still a great value, and now you have an excuse to buy more than one!)
