Not as versatile as it seems
I bought this bag based on the features. Arguably, it does have loops for a crop, the straps are nice and adjustable, and the mesh/zippered pockets which are convenient. The helmet sling is a nice function but not small enough to hold my helmet, nor does it protect it from getting knocked around a bit during travel. The carrying capacity of this bag is severely hampered by the incredibly stiff material, which makes the bag hard to open and close. The zipper is sturdy but super stiff, and the construction means it's difficult to get the bag closed because the fabric is so inflexible. Also, let's talk about boots. If you are putting boots in this bag, there's no separation from anything else -- so your boots had better be super clean, or there will be dirt/arena dust on everything.
I wanted this bag because I commute right from work to the barn and needed something to hold my riding clothes, but the design of the product makes it impractical.

AH-mazing, stylish and well-made backpack
Awesome backpack - so awesome in fact, that I actually have two - this one and the Bee print.
Mackey thought of everything. - I can easily stow my boots and helmet with room to spare for other essentials. Lots of pockets for cell phone, sunscreen, spurs, etc.
Super-impressed by the quality of the backpack - sturdy fabric & zippers, and the piping and lining completely set Mackey backpacks apart from the rest. I use my other one for school & have received tons of compliments on both.
