Gary B. Lamph 3 Not really 2 way bag. Too big to use as a 'hand' bag, the shoulder strap gets in the way. Needs to be a releasable strap to have a chance to work. I was hoping for a slightly larger bag, (maybe a '5 day' bag). The style is good, the pockets are well thought out (I wish the end pockets were a bit bigger) and I'd like them better if the zippers were two way so it could be used on either shoulder but that would raise the price more too.
