The best just got even better. The HBBevo has been reconfigured and updated from the original Healthy Back Bag. Made of water-resistant, soft, and luxurious microfiber, the HBBevo Microfiber Medium features a padded pocket for tablets/eReaders, magnetic closures and a cushioned strap.
PROS: I wear my bag across my front. When traveling, a loose unbuttoned shirt helps hide it. Didn't know until today, looking to replace my bag, that photos show it on one's back. Hmmm. While on my chest I've easy access to items in big / main zipper pouch. I don't care what people think - my stuff is safe.
CONS: I often wish that there was an 'O-ring' at the top of the bag, to hang it on a hook (in bathrooms), etc. Using the strap it slides sideways, cracking the non-slip material which now catches on my clothes. The pocket velcro wore out last year albeit I gingerly used this pocket. During the work week I place all my key sets in the end pocket, which sometimes tumbles, and spills them out. A magnet closure is a great idea. But, at $80+ bucks I may squeeze out a few more months and miles.

LOVE this bag
PROS: Carry everything you need, including IPAD 10".
No back pain, easy to get into, without removing from your shoulder. Love the double Zipper and wash it without worry.
CONS: Wish the leather bag was not so expensive!

PROS: I love the way this bag carries a heavy load without stressing your body out. The bag may still feel heavy but once properly situated on your shoulder or back, the weight disappears. There are plenty of pockets to organize everything from your iPad to Epi-Pens.
CONS: There isn't really anything that I don't like about this bag. It is not the prettiest bag I have every owned, but functionality wins over appearance in a major way. I would like to suggest that the outside spine pocket have a magnetic/zipper closure like the other outside pockets, or some sort of key fob option for that pocket. I tend to carry my keys there because of the easy access to the pocket. It is possible for them to fall out when I am looking for something in the main compartment. It is a minor inconvenience at worst.
