I desperately want to love this bag. I do. But the clips and connections from the bag to the strap are flimsy, clear PLASTIC. Number one, this is awful for the Earth, but also, this bag is REALLY expensive. For that price, I'd hope that they'd use brass or steel connectors. There is NO excuse. The only reason I kept the bag and gave it as many stars as I did is because it is my favorite artist's print. I don't feel comfortable using the bag and make sure that I don't put anything important in it because I know it will eventually fail. I wish it had been advertised as being plastic connectors because I wouldn't have bought it.
