I use the bag for my daily gym bag and it's holding up so far. I'm not sure how strong it'll be in the long run, but seems like its well made and material is great. I don't have a problem with the body strap like the other review. The strap does seem cheaper than the rest, but functions just fine.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
So this is a fine bag. Very very durable and I imagine it will out last me. I needed a bag that I could use for a gym bag but also a travel bag, and this certainly fits the bill. Its made out of very fine materials. ...but...
Why only 3 stars you ask? While the bag is nicely made, its design is certainly made for carrying heavier items and so over the shoulder would be the standard position. That being said, the strap they added for this seems to be a cheap after thought. Its just a simple nylon strap so it doesn't stay across your shoulders. I would think with all the thought they put in to the bag as a whole, they would've supplied a shoulder strap of the same quality and usefulness. Ill have to buy a proper shoulder strap after the fact now.
I like the bag enough to not return it, but maybe the company will read this for future models.
The Quest can be your go-to duffel. It's better looking than your old beater, but just as hard working. So if you love a good duffel and shower regularly, the Quest is for you. Lightweight Ripstop Nylon means you only carry what you pack and compression straps let you stuff it or keep it slim accordingly. And its big-mouth opening and large floating shoe pocket facilitates sanitary packing. Grab it in your hands or sling it over your shoulder and enjoy your Quest.
