i have one i'm going to review in a few weeks at BJJ Legends. It's very well made and looks great (best looking bag I have). With all the coupon codes around for them (LEGENDS25 = 25% off) it's not too expensive.

A little heavy but can hold an enormous amount of gear. I use it for BJJ and it will probably hold at least 3-4 gis, misc other stuff, shoes, etc... One of the side pockets is insulated and all the buckles are metal. There are separate pockets for wet stuff, a computer, glasses, and shoes.

If you travel a lot it would be a very good bag for short(er) trips that doubles as a backpack. Does that help?

Matt can you give me an estimate on how much it can hold when in the back pack format? like without the bottom folded out? In the video he does have a ton of stuff in there which is awesome because I seem to have more and more to put in my bag and it just tore...I have 2 weight belts (one has a chain for weight dips or pull ups) and always have my weight lifting shoes and a pair of shoes for rope climbs that I have to fit in my bag...

you should have plenty of room for that, it's got a lot space. If you get one could you use my code? :D

Just got my Hylete convertible bag yesterday. It's awesome and can fit so much inside. I replaced a laptop bag, a back-pack and a food bag and it's probably 25% full. It is rather large when in backpack mode. I'm using it in duffle mode right now with three pairs of shoes and tons of other stuff. So far very happy with it. I'll report back after using it daily, for trips, competitions, etc. Love Hylete gear!

I've using it a few weeks and found that one feature I thought I'd never use has become one of my favorite things about the bag.

There's an insulated pocket on the side. I've made a protein-shake with cold water and a handful of ice put in their and 2 hrs later the ice was still in it and it was cold. Having a cold drink in your bag after training is awesome. :pepper:
