Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Material is great and a cool style, but the lack of a normal duffel strap is super annoying. This makes swinging it over one shoulder awkward as the bag will not sit upright. To grab it off the ground and keep it level, you need to grab both shoulder straps at the same time, and they're 3 to 4 inches wide.
A normal strap down the middle would be great. I'll investigate returning it, as other North Face designs or different brands have it.
