Great EDC Bag
Use: Everyday bag for work. I commute through public transportation in various weather conditions. I carry a tablet PC, small laptop, composition book, sunglasses, protection, large headphones, hygiene, power cords, gloves, beanie, and other misc items.
I bought this bag to replace my other "small" bag that broke. Turns out this "small" bag was able to replace my bigger EDC bag due to it's comfort on my back, ability to better compartmentalize my items, and the ability to attach other molle bags to it. The compression straps makes it feel like one solid unit.
Straps Aint good enough
After about a year or so of carrying this as a first response medical backpack for EDC, the bottom right strap part where it attaches to the back has almost ripped off, so i had to make it one strapped. Seemed good for about 2 weeks, then its almost ripped at the bottom left. It was great at first but the bag i replaced i used for 5 years and yet it was barely ripped, only reason i switched was to get an OCP camo one for my uniform to carry around on base. Not good for 65.99 at the PX when my other one was 35.00 and never was ripped.
Response from Flying Circle: We are really sorry for the inconvenience. That fabric is a licensed product and its use requires us to pay a royalty, which is why it costs more. Additionally, that fabric is relatively new for us and we are still learning how to best use it in the construction of the pack. Your experience and feedback will really help us make a better product. Our bags are covered by a lifetime warranty. One of our representatives will be contacting you so we can send you a replacement bag.
