Trip Impressions - ID Bag
Having just returned from a two week vacation trip to France, I cannot write enough good things about the new ID bag that I used as my daily bag. Not only was it comfortable, even in 92+ degree heat in Paris, but it was big enough to hold whatever landed in it for the day, yet small enough to not be in the way. The bag held everything from fresh food to museum books to jackets, all without protest. The bag lived at my side for over 12 hours each day and its almost as if it wasn't there - the highest compliment I can bestow on any bag or piece of luggage. When the time came to pack it in my carry on, it took up minimal space. I had very high expectations for this bag and it exceeded most of them. The only thing I would liked to have changed was the orientation of the zipper of the flap. It would have better served me in a horizontal position rather than being vertical (for my digital camera), but I know there are practical reasons why the zipper was placed in this position. Otherwise, I was quite a happy traveller. Good work, Tom! And thanks!
It's great to hear that your ID served you so well over the course of your travels. As on oftentime ID user myself, I concur with many of your conclusions about the bag's comfort and utility. Of course, I'm biased so that doesn't count for much. It's always great to have my opinions confirmed by an enthusiastic, supportive, world-traveller such as yourself. If you happen to have any photos of yourself with the ID in some exotic locale, we'd love to see those here as well. Thank you for your support!
I do have some photos of the ID "in action". I will try and forward those to you as soon as I can.
