Rated 4 out of 5 by charmin2 Four Stars Because...
I love the bag, and the travelon line. Never had a problem, until this bag. The smaller outer pocket's zipper gets stuck in one spot. I'm hoping it doesn't end up breaking. I think it's bc the stitching is not even in that area. It's a defect, but I'll only be using it for my phone, so...we'll see
Rated 1 out of 5 by MsKittySD Did not meet Travelon's standards
I've always had good luck with Travelon products. So I ordered this bag for a trip to Europe. It had everything I was looking for: size, security, style, etc. Unfortunately, the seams on both straps unraveled on day 5 of use. Once I got home it was beyond the window to return the bag. So I guess I'm stuck with finding a way to fix these seams!!! Not happy!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cwalker Great for Travel!
The one thing this bag was missing after researching handbags for my trip was a water-bottle holder on the outside. That feature was hardly missed since this bag held a bottle, a mini-umbrella and wallet easily. I had plenty of room for personal items and cell phone as well. I can't tell you how nice it was to walk busy downtown city streets and not have to worry about my purse being opened if I wore it like a backpack.
Another reviewer had this great idea and it worked for me as well: it can be hard to "lock" both zippers on the purse, because the latch gets crowded. Just attach a key-ring to one of the pulls, you'll have plenty of room to secure them both.
The reason I did not give it 5 stars was that the adjusters on the straps don't hold their position. Travelon needs to fix that, I know non-slip adjusters exist. I had to stop periodically to tighten the straps and that's a bother.
Loved the weather resistant material, it's not water-proof, but gives you a good window of opportunity to seek shelter or grab your umbrella before any of your belongings get wet. It is very durable and easy to clean, simply a wipe down was all it took for coffee spills, etc.
Over-all, I was very happy with this purchase.

I have several Travelon bags, but this one just didn't have enough space inside. I would never have used it. I also didn't like the way it looked when I changed up the straps, just not a nice look for me and too long. I like the idea and will look in the future to see if they do another convertible bag, but this just didn't work at all. It went back immediately.
Rated 1 out of 5 by vickyr do not recommend
i would not recommend this to anyone, zipper on main compartment will not stay zipped it separates when zipped
Rated 2 out of 5 by onie Nice, BUT
I really like the backpack which I mostly used as a cross-over. I took the item on a trip and the top zipper wouldn't close properly. It would break apart. I did use it again on another trip and had the same problem. Sometimes the zipper would stay closed, but I never knew when it would "break apart" therefor I could not use it as a backpack because I had to keep the backpack under arm for security reasons.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Vernon Best travel bag ever!
I carried this on a 10 day trip to Europe and it was perfect. Lightweight, water resistant and pick pocket proof. Tons of organizational pockets, held water bottles and umbrellas. Not super expensive so I didn't have to baby it. One of the first times I didn't regret my bag choice on a trip.
Rated 5 out of 5 by margot123 Brilliant Backpack.
I have used this backpack in all my summer travels, it's design, quality, and style are brilliant. This was my first Travelon purchase and I look forward to exploring more of your products in the future, thank you!
