Ah, that would not work for me.

Zipper on top. That does not work for me. Too much hassle opening/closing, and zippers often make a narrow opening - I want the opening as wide as the bag.

I like the color (really dislike default black nylon) but I prefer a retro look.

On topic: What about the Think Tank Retrospective 7? Affordable, lots of features, raincover, padding. Built like a Tardis; it's almost bigger on the inside.
Ditch the two-backstrap-requirement and wear this as a satchel: on your lower back. Slide/rotate to the hip when needed. The Romans used to carry a satchel that way. Ok, they didn't make many memorable photographs, but it was good enough to conquer an empire.

That work for you?
