Ordered in black. Good, plain bag. Everest logo tab (like a Levi's red tab) is unobtrusive. One big compartment easily fits an 8.5"x11" pad in a leather case. Zippered inside pocket is bigger than expected. Two pockets under the flap are roomy, but have no closures; I'll likely added Velcro or a snap. The main flap has Velcro strips mated to the underflap pockets and two elastic straps on the outside that lie flat. From strap to strap, the bag stretches about 20" across and fits in a lap on the bus. At either end is a narrow pocket for umbrella or water bottle, each with snaps. The strap has brass fittings to the bag (which also has a grommet on either end) and is easily adjusted for tight or loose fitting, as desired. Plain broad webbing lies flat on the shoulder. Great bag for public transit, for stowing winter layers while in the office, or as a book bag. Dried very quickly from light rain & snow; damp surface, didn't get soaked through. A rock-hunting friend wants one for working afield.
