I bought this for my mallets and sticks as I needed something quite big, also to carry notes and folders in. The bag is of a great quality and after having used it for some time now, shows very little wear and nothing has broken. There is a lot of space, being able to hold all my sticks and mallets and at the same time providing good protection, and I am also able to carry notes and books in the second pocket.
The only negative point I have about the bag is that if you want to wear it as a back pack, it is very uncomfortable as the straps mean it hangs very low which can be painful if the bag is heavy. Additionally, to carry it with the handle is very useful but once again if the bag is heavy, it can be very tiring after a while.
Other than that, a very good bag which I would suggest for any percussionist looking for a big, versatile bag!
