Ordered this after seeing my son's. I liked the ability to carry everything I need, without the bulk. This pack has a slim profile,and the unique way the straps are attached prevents the pack from rolling forward when wearing. Also, I love the ability and ease to open and close zippers with one hand. The strap is long enough to fully extend and wear cross body for some, but probably not all. I tried my son's this way and is one of the reasons why I bought mine.
The best waist pack I ever got so far. It can hold a lot more than I expected. And the one-handed side cinch is great. You can tighten or loosen the belt with one hand so easily. Tried to buy another one but they were sold out. Next time.
