Quality

This is the second Zip bag I've bought and I like it just as well as the first, well built, good materials, nicely thought out. Although my waxed canvas is much darker than shown, it won't be noticed on a galloping horse I suppose, but if I had it to do over I'd have picked black ballistic and black leather..

Best minimal bag (with some functionality) on the market.

Did lots of research for a minimal bag/sleeve for my MacBook that could also handle a charger, phone, passport, glasses, keys, and maybe a book/magazine. The online video accurately describes and is better than I thought it would be. If you're contemplating waxed canvass vs. ballistic nylon and not sure which way to go, I'd recommend waxed canvass. I ended up getting the nylon and love it, but I do wonder if I would have loved it even more had I gone with waxed canvass. Awesome product!
