Simple organization is perfect for me. I keep my waterbottle pocket in the outside pockets, but my Ulock inside - because I feel like the outside pocket isn't strong enough for it. I love the reflective bottom of the bag and the straps. It's really easy to use it as a tote. I use it both ways. The fabric makes a lot of noise, so I don't love that. When I am riding, I use the magnetic sternum strap to keep everything secure on my back. Cool looking pack, easy to carry everything I need for the day.
