I bought this after I realized that I wasn't using most of the stuff that I was carrying around in my small travel cross body bag that I bought from a well-known travel gear company years ago. Pacsaf's bag can't carry a wallet, several keys on a key ring, or coins, but it can carry some paper cash, a passport, lots of cards, a pen, my phone, my car key fob, plus a few other things that weren't bulky. It's much lighter than my other bag and I found that I don't have to take it off when sitting buckled in on the airplane. It's super easy to unzip it a bit and pull out a credit card or my phone. Once I put it on, I don't have to take it off. Things that I might have put in my purse went into my carry-on backpack. After some use, I decided that the zip-clip was hard to work and heavy, so I removed it. In my opinion, the zip tab for the other zipper would have been a better option where the clip was. Also, the strap was somewhat twisted, which I think was caused by the wires in the straps. Still, I love the bag and highly recommend it.
