Have been carrying the Saddleback for a week now. Love it. This is my bag. Will post a full review soon.

Thanks, man, appreciated your confidence.

Or figure out a way to keep it in *front* of you. This is one reason I prefer messenger bags over backpacks in that when I board a bus, I can just swing it to the front and avoid plastering people with it. Then again, I've also had extensive collarbone surgery and backpack straps aggravate the hell out of it, so I either go one strap or go without. :P
Yep. With you all the way. ~ H
