Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Bought this as a replacement for my 15 year-old Baileyworks Courier, and fully expect the Metropolis to last as long, if not longer. This bag is built like a tank, and is almost as big. I've carried a week's worth of groceries in it, stacks of library books, and a case of beer with room left over. And the wide, cushioned shoulder strap carried that weight comfortably, and combined with the stabilizer, kept it from shifting as I rode. A bomber, bomber bag. It is huge, though, and at 6'2" and 175, it covers my entire back, and can be a bit smothering in the heat. But it's maybe the best bag of its kind, and well worth the price.
