The awkwardness of the shape is a personal preference thing. I wish that it were about 1-2 inches wider to better fit some of the items I use the bag to hold. Other than that small factor...
I just LOVE this bag. I ended up using it as a way to organize my wide array of jewelry making tools. It holds so much! It doesn't fit all of the crazy fun amounts of tools that I have but I am able to carry my basics plus some of my favorite "extras".
I can't believe the number of things I was able to fit in this bag with all of the storage compartments and straps that are included! It's surprising and impressive!
The material is very durable and the bag is well stitched. The elastic straps for holding items are well sewn in my items stay in place without issue. I have had no issues with any of the straps pulling apart or with any stitches becoming loose. (So far) But, I don't foresee that ever being much of an issue. Like I said this bag is very durable and well made. It's damn impressive! The weight of my tools isn't light by any means. They may be on the smaller side but many of them are solid stainless steel. The weight hasn't caused any damage to the straps or anything at all in any part of the bag. It's awesome because I have had a lot of trouble with that in the past.
I would recommend this for many different purposes and to just about anyone! It is so useful. I love it and couldn't imagine not owning it now that I do. Meaning that yes I would 100% purchase this again!
