Only got this bag on Friday, but have used it twice now for swimming with the family. Large bag easily holds a couple large bath/beach towels, suits, flip-flops and goggles with room to spare. When I showed my wife the listing she was skeptical, but she was really impressed with the bag once it arrived and we've had a chance to use it. We're going on a cruise this year so this thing will be perfect to throw in the suitcase for use on day trips and shore excursions.
Solid construction. Nice zippers. Usable pockets. Large mesh side pockets with tightening bands to hold your water bottle in place. Key ring hook. Decent straps. And it all folds in on itself into a nice little pouch!
I'm a big guy (6', 350 lb) and this thing actually fits me with both straps on, which is more than I can say for some other

Works well and is definitely foldable into the tiny pocket which is very convenient for travelling.
Just have a couple concerns. The product pictures show that this should include a metal ring clip, but I did not receive that with the bag.
Also, the middle pocket's zipper (the one between the main compartment and the outer pocket) is not very smooth and would often get stuck requiring several tries to zip it in place. Smoother zipper operation would be preferred.
Because of this, i'm docking 1 star off, otherwise, this is a well designed bag and I would definitely recommend for travelling.

Very light weight, which is good. I reinforced the stitching around the handle before I left on my trip and was very glad I had. My daughter bought one size up and I had to handsew hers during the trip because it was not reinforced and started to rip out around the handle. Learning how to fold it up properly is a genuine skill that should come with a certificate. To keep it secure from pick pockets I wore it turned backwards and since I am small, I was able to tie the long ends of the shoulder straps around my waist. Worked well.

This is a great backpack for there day if you are going to the beach or running errands. It is very light weight but holds a lot. Very well made. We took it to universal studios in Orlando and ti was not too hot to use in the +38 C temperature. We have used it on tropical vacations as a beach bag because it has 4 different compartments so you can put your money/valuables inside the smaller zipper, lots of room for sunscreen, sunglasses, books, water, et =c. I have order 1 for each member of my family

I was looking for a very light backpack to use as a day pack while travelling. I ordered two, one black and one blue. We found these great for packing a lunch, a drink , light rain jacket, etc. Lots of room to add small shopping items too. ( two side pockets fit a water bottle in each , camera etc easily) There isn't any support to the pack but you could put a small sit pad inside to cushion along your back. We didn't notice any discomfort, we placed our fleece jacket or rain jacket inside if it was a warm day. We sometimes put one empty backpack into the other to use for extra shopping on the way home. I used mine on the plane and it tucked easily under my feet out of the way.

Used this for a trip to Italy. It worked out great. Used it as my day bag in Italy and for carrying necessitys on the plane and on trains.
Yes it is thin but that makes it very lightweight and when travelling a person needs no extra weight. It is not one of those super secure bags for sure but you should not be carrying any valuables in your backpack anyway, they should be on your person.! Excellent for day trips and trips to the beach.

This bag is exactly what it says it is. A VERY lightweight LITTLE backpack that folds into itself. I used it quite a bit this summer for day hikes while we were camping and for bringing a few small items around town when I didn't want to haul around a half empty big backpack.
I actually fit snorkelling gear in this bag for a 2.5km hike - the fins stuck out the top but I was able to use an s-biner to keep the zippers

I got this backpack for a trip to Florida, so I wanted something lightweight to carry through the airport and on the plane. In line at the airport I picked it up by it's loop at the top and it nearly ripped off. It wasn't just at the seam... it frayed. The bag may have been to heavy, but I doubt it. I use this bag as my daughter's diaper bag now. I like the two side pockets - nice and deep with elastics - and the two front zippered pockets were very convenient for travel documents and easy-to-access baby treats. It's fine - it's what I expected. However, the frayed handle on first use was really annoying to me.
