To start off with, The shoes i had before these were the La Sportiva Katanas which did me well until the had stretch out too much and the nose had worn down to the point where there was a hole in the nose.
I have the the Vapor V for about a month now and they have not failed me once. Super strong nose, very nice, snug, and tight but not uncomfortable fit. I do lots of bouldering and usually lead climbing( all indoors due to it being florida) and it works great all around. If you want to know about sizing make sure if your going with from La Sportiva to Scarpa, to size either equal or half a size up or down. I had to return my size and go the same size as my katanas due to half a size smaller feeling like a bear trap on my toes.

So I finally had this bag come in, and it was immediately an incredible bag. Plenty of pockets, more than enough space for things to store. And so I decided to put it to the test. I shoved my 17" laptop into the padded pocket, school books and papers, u-lock, and a change of clothes and rode to school on, and it was incredibly comfortable. Held well and didn't bounce around. All the straps are easy to access and easy to secure. That was 12 mile ride all around.
Then off to the rock climbing gym, so I loaded up my harness, shoes, and rope. I also left the laptop in there and some new clothes and rode to the gym. Again, even with a rope, all was held tight and nothing moved. A total of 8 miles of riding all around.
Now for the final test. Went to a concert with clothes, my $600 DSLR Camera, and my laptop, along with the belongings of the friends i went with and went straight to the mosh pit. Absolutely nothing went wrong. I cinched down all the straps, and even with all the moving and shoving and kicking, the pack held close to my body and my laptop and camera came out looking as good as they ever did. And since all the pockets are easily accessible, all the belongings were easily to reach.

Bottom line: Osprey built this bag for commuting, better than a messenger bag and flat out worthy of carrying your most valuable gear.
