well it is amazing what you can achieve in a day when you have no interruption's. I made sure when i made this bag that i took my time and thought it all through as much as i could. I am really pleased with it, actually I'm more than pleased. It is almost perfect. I have put three pockets on one side and a zipped large on on the other. It is oil cloth on the outside and fabric on the inside. The straps are better but not as tough as i would like. i have yet to find something that is as strong as i want.
