This bag is as advertised. I have already had to over-stuff and abuse it twice, and the bag is holding up well! It is extremely roomy (stored my mini-bag, 2 Davis books, clipboard, 2 blood pressure cuffs, gait belt, lab coat, and various paraphernalia with no strain),the strap is well made and distributes weight well across my shoulder, and the pockets are easily accessible. I am a "bag lady," and this one works better for my profession than many of the others I have tried. Also, the purple tie-dye was much more muted than I expected, which was a relief.
