I have used this bag for over two years now, and it is the best I have ever found. It has been on many international tours, and it has performed beautifully. It is the perfect combination of functionality, organization, and safety all in a very compact small size. Its small size belies its usefulness. To me, it is the best bag out there for travel.

I ordered this bag in late January in anticipation of a trip to the Netherlands starting on April 6. To grow accustomed to it I loaded my items into it and started using it in early to mid February. I have been giving it light usage but this past Saturday the hinge/loop holding the adjustable strap broke, Fortunately my mimi iPad was not in it at the time or this essential item to me could have been damaged.

I liked this bag although it could have been just a bit bigger. The multiple compartments are great if you like to organize. I found it difficult to always remember which compartment I put what in. Maybe I am not as organized as I think I am or maybe age is catching up to me.
Nonetheless here I am less than a week away from departure without a bag. I am returning my items to the RFID wallet (which holds our passports, i.d.s, money, a slim pair of sunglasses and a lip gloss and can be attached to a strap to carry cross body or over the shoulder) that I have carried for over a year and will put it and my iPad and other items in a larger purse--probably the VaultPro bag I purchased maybe two-three years ago which held my regular size iPad and a myriad of other things. I am just afraid as airline regulations continue to change that it might be considered carry on luggage and that I will be penalized for this.
I have asked for a refund rather than replacement but haven't yet heard back from customer service. (In all honesty I sent my complaint to customer service just before writing this review.)
I really like this bag, and I'll probably use it long after my trip. I'm a little disappointed that the RFID protection isn't for the entire bag (or is it?) because I was also going to take my iPad mini (it fits nicely in the center of the bag) but overall this is a great way to take lots of stuff on your trip and keep your personal ID on credit cards/passport protected.

When I received it I began using it right away to get it broken-in and get the strap to the just-right right length. I'm very happy with all the security closures and pockets. I don't always use the latches, but I do if I'm in an area that's crowded. There are a lot of places to store things in this small package! It's awesome!
I love working with the Easy Pack II. I can easily rearrange the contents to match my travel, shopping, or business needs. It's easy to carry and expand as needed, and I love the color and easy access to my items. It really is the best purse I've ever had.

I've had my Easy Pack2 bag just a week or two and already feel it is the BEST bag I've ever had. Easy to organize my credit cards in the protected areas for them. Tuck my driving glasses in the center area, and switch with my at-home glasses as needed. It seems ready for action, is easy to carry, and I love it.

I recently travelled with my Easy Pack II. It was easy to carry. The strap did not cut across my neck like some other bags. The bag is very sturdy, and everything fit in its place comfortably. For the first time of travelling, I did not have to carry a wallet. My hands were always free to carry other items. My passports and boarding passes were right at hand,

I have carried other purses with me on trips to England but buying this one was a great thing to do. It carries everything and safely. It makes accessing passport, money and cards a cinch. Besides that, the middle pockets expands enough to hold a water bottle and a book. I only wish that the strap was a bit long although it does fit over my head. I am going to buy another one for my next trip. .

Love it! Great for traveling. Keeps everything in its place. No more panic when I can't find my passport or ticket! Even has room for my kindle! Best travel bag ever!

AWESOME bag! I bought this for my travels to Spain. It was perfect One side was secure for money and credit cards. And, there is an open portion in the middle where sunglasses, maps, etc. could fit easily to come in and out at a moments notice. There are plenty of compartments. It was light. Just the right size. I traveled with someone who selected the backpack. While it was secure, it was not as quick to get things in and out. This purse is a must! LOVED it and will not need, or get, any other!

Beautifully made and very smartly designed for my kind of travel. It holds my Kindle, highlighters, pens and little notepad in one section; glasses, big sunglasses and grooming stuff in another; hand sanitizer and tissues in the front flapped part; water bottle in the slotted pocket; and my entire 848-page (!) travel guide in the middle without sticking out as mentioned below. It's intuitive, clever and I think has put an end to all those irritating searches through multiple pockets.

No question this is a nice daybag. Zip-expandable center section, elastic-linked lobster-claws to lock zippers, and RFID are great features. Material is sturdy but soft, and construction is good. It's difficult to adjust the reinforced strap to length, but once there it stays. The narrow open slot above the turn-clasp pocket may be difficult to use for large sunglasses or those with large hands, but can work well for smaller items (the space is wide inside). Each main pocket zipper opens two-thirds of the way around, and the pocket is gusseted on one side; I wish it zipped on three sides, had two gussets, and had double zips so it could open from either side. I thought this bag would hold a standard paperback travel guide/map/foldout walking guide, but it isn't tall enough--not even the open center pocket. I don't like things sticking out or flopping about. Still deciding on whether to keep or not....

This holds an amazing amount of stuff. I like that I can use it as a tote when getting on the airplane and then skinny it down to use it as a purse. This is a winner and well worth the price.

This bag is hands down the best vacation travel bag I have found. Its maiden voyage in May 2013 was to Ireland for a ten day trip. Everything fit comfortably into this bag, and I especially liked not having to carry a wallet, since credit cards, id, currency, etc. all fit into the compartment intended for those items -- and the ability to "lock" the zipper shut but still get to the wallet compartment quickly and easily is wonderful. We had a lot of "Irish sunshine" (rain) and the bag repelled moisture just fine. Wearing it cross-body made it even more secure, and I never felt weighed down. Other bags I've purchased were either too bulky or too heavy, or required contortions to get to my stuff. The VaultPro Easy Pack II just couldn't be better.

This is one wonderful purse. I managed to get all my stuff into the purse - including sun glasses - carried it all over Africa and still loved it when I got home. Could pack all the passports, visas, medical papers, $$, even some jewelry - in it with no difficulty. So good, I'm giving it to my daughter to use on her trip to Europe! Am sure she will love it as much as I do.
