This bag is great. It can hold everything you'll need when leaving the house. I've even used it on short day hikes. It's very comfortable and it is well built. I use the MOLLE points to attach a water bottle and the outer pocket is well organized and great for pens, a knife, small flashlight, compass, etc. The only thing that would make it better is if it were more ambidextrous. It is designed to be primarily worn on the right side.
