Summary: The bag is sturdy, well-padded, and relatively small. The weather cover is sewn to the bag, under the belt loop, and unfolds to cover the whole bag. I had doubts about that cover at first, since I noticed that it seemed to absorb rain and not repel it, but once I removed the cover I found that the bag itself was almost dry, so the cover does offer good protection.
Pros: Good padding, folding weather cover
Cons: Zippers mean it takes longer than average to open the pouch
