Lug North/South Convertible RFID Crossbody - Monorail is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 115.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Only so so After caring this since October, I am kind of sorry I bought it. The straps on the purse, when carrying it as a cross body, only hook on and are not secure. My strap falls off the purse a lot. Makes it uncomfortable and inconvenient when in a hurry and your strap falls off.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I WANTED To Love This Bag ... But ... there were a few things I wasn't happy with. I don't like the fact that, in order for it to be used as a crossbody/shoulder bag, you have to stow the second strap in the bag (you can't keep it attached). And then when you want to use it as a backpack, you have to completely unattach the shoulder strap and reattach it in other places - as well as use the stowed strap. It doesn't let itself to switching back and forth between a shoulder/crossbody bag and a backpack during the same outing. Also ... a top handle would be very convenient. I will be returning it and continue searching for the perfect bag for my purposes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too heavy and not a backpack Took this on my trip to Europe. Pretty much everything fits in. A place for everything and everything in its place. But once filled it was so heavy I could not comfortably carry the weight. And I didn’t put so much in. The heaviest was my iPad. Also I found it totally impossible to get my arms into it to use it as a backpack. Once I finally got them in, I never thought I'd get them out! And just to be sure I continually tried to adjust the length of the strap. At its longest it hung so low on my body that it was unusable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Love the color, size, weight and especially the organizations. The best organized purse that I ever had.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect I use this convertible as only a backpack. I have 2: peacock and walnut and wish they were a small bit wider and the water bottle pocket was lined with a softer more pliable material. I love the pockets that accommodate so many of my needs BUT the main compartment barely holds my wallet plus essentials. It's a bit annoying! That being said, I have been stopped multiple times and asked where I got it. While here, picking up purple!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding "Smart" Bag! I love this bag! Ordered in teal color. Very neutral. Has tons of zipper pockets including an insulated pocket that fits a full size water bottle! I use as a backpack or crossbody. Smartest Lug bag I own. High quality. I get compliments every time I use. Usually multiple inquiries and compliments!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! When I read some of the reviews, I was hesitant about ordering this bag. There are comments about the bottle holder being too big, and taking up too much space. That is soo not true. It takes up about 3 inches of the inside. You still have plenty of room. The straps are not itchy as were described by some in the comments as well. This is a great bag. I just ordered two more colors. Love it!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Backpack feature -- not very useful I purchased this mainly because I'm trying to downsize my bag from the Fry backpack. I agree with the other reviewer about the inefficiency of the drink holder. Once in use, it takes away valuable space from the inside. While its slimness was one of the features which attracted me to it, it also features in its downside list because (for me) it just made it difficult to pack what I deem are essentials. If you overfill the main compartment in the middle, and this causes a slight bulge, then the two outside pockets (one with the backpack strap holders and the other, the zippered pouch in the back) are really unusable except for very flat items (like my checkbook). Can't use the pocket where the strap holders are tucked in because if you bend over, your items fall out (because it's not that deep). When I used it as a backpack the extended top made the bag sag too far back. I could not pull it in closer to my back because the straps were already at the shortest setting. When I used the hookups for a crossbody as my backpack anchors, it wasn't comfortable and the straps kept slipping. I carry a folding umbrella for the unexpected outbursts in weather, so that also took quite a bit of space in the main compartment away from other things. I stored it vertically with the handle sticking out. I used the zippered small outside pocket for my car keys and the magnetically closed pocket on the outside for my oversized iPhone X. The larger zippered outer pocket was for my readers and my wallet. Inside, I used the clear plastic for contact lens paraphernalia; and the middle, for my over-sized sunglass case, a slim organizer holding a brush, small portable cell phone charger, cable, & plug, and my folding umbrella. I guess I'll have to keep using my Fry backpack for a while longer. It's a cute-looking backpack, but not as functional as I had thought it would be, as one would expect from a Lug brand. Maybe I just need to limit what I carry to my car keys, wallet, phone, lip gloss, pens, checkbook, and a small water bottle. I would consider that option, if the anchor straps for the backpack configuration were changed to something less loose.
