"I have 2 of these bags (black and navy) and they are wonderful for traveling. I keep passports and cell phones in the outside zip pockets, for easy access but still know they're secure. There is a ton of room on the inside for everything else. They are lightweight, even when full, which is essential when doing lots of walking in new cities. I only wish I could find this bag in a cross body type, or if it came with a cross body strap, cause then it would be perfect. Still highly recommend for vacation use."
