This is an update or revision of a prior review. In my first review, my expectations were different. I carry a lot of equipment to a meet, and occasionally, the venue doesn't have lockers. (meaning, clothing has to fit into the bag. For this purpose, the bag does not fit my need, and a large Alliance backpack does.
As far as a swim, with all of your own hardcore equipment; your own pull buoy, paddles, fins, alternate goggles, etc., I don't recommend this bag. I do recommend it for the person who has stuff they want to keep dry on the pool deck, or if there is either the chance of rain, or a chance someone will hose down the deck. It will keep your towel and electronic gear dry while you are swimming. I still would have preferred a sealing closure to a roll top design, as, if the straps aren't adjusted properly, items can still get out if the bag is tossed around.
My bags are stored in cold temperatures. Today, for example it's going into the teens. My bag would normally be packed in the car overnight for the morning workout. Ski bags made of similar material don't usually last a year because the material loses elasticity/flexibility and becomes more rigid at lower temperatures, leading to cracking.. I am only guessing on this one for the bag, as I have only had it in use 2 months, but have had no problems to date.
A little uncomfortable for a person with a broad bad to put on. I tend to "sling" it over one shoulder vs. wearing as a back pack. This bag is more comfortable, I can estimate, for people with narrower shoulders. (I have a 48" chest, making the back a little broader than most, thus, the discomfort.)
Now that some time has passed, I am seeing more upside to the bag.

Best backpack I've ever used for swimming.

Let me start out by saying, yes I swim professionally. I'm a multinational swimmer and I tend to carry a very heavy load. For a while I was using the norm Speedo 35L bag. Well it tore, so I needed something new. This bag is beyond amazing. It holds as much as you can put in the bag with one roll which, frankly, is loads more than 27L. Its great for separating clothes and a towel(s) in the top pocket from my wet suit and goggles and cap in the zipper up front. It's extremely comfortable and stylish. Its also a great eye catcher. I get many questions on it and would recommend this bag to anyone. Do not pay attention to the hate review in this. This bag outclasses any swim bag currently on the market.
