my mom has a backpack made with canvas, I like it very much, when I saw this one online, I ordered right away. I got the gray color one, it is not really gray, it is more light brown, makes the bag old fashion look which is I like. The bag is pretty big, I can put two laptops in, some books and other stuff I have, and there is still room. And plenty pockets, and I really like the two between bag handles, if I am in a hurry, I can slip my phone and keys in there, and didn't worry about they will come out. It does gets very heavy if have a lot stuff in, but since it can convert to backpack, or shoulder bag so easily, I will think that will not be problem. The craftmanship is very good, but since it is made with canvas, it is not waterproof, it may be a little water resistant. For less than $50, it is worth the money.
