    Couldn't agree more. It's a huge turnoff for me when a company makes their stuff overseas.

    I've got the smaller version of this and am quite happy with it, does that make me a "wanna be"? I guess so
    Wanna be bag owner
    Wanna be bag carrier
    Wanna be organized
    Wanna be without my pockets weighed down

    Besides, my sunglasses and bag are the only thing about me that's coordinated ;)

    No clamshell, lack of interior organization, etc.

    I've got a few now.

    One. Velcro. Too much and too loud when you're trying to slip out a laptop or something in a meeting.

    Excessive Straps. I've changed my main work/over nightish bag from an outdoorsy backpack (karrimor if that makes a difference) to a cheapy, probably-cost-no-more-than-a-tenner-at-Costco high sierra riprap. It's got a grab handle and two shoulder straps. No compression straps. No chest strap. No waist strap - all of which were determined to get caught in the van door every morning. If I had a pound every time this happened I'd be able to afford any bag under sun, but it's not happened with the riprap.

    Must have an external drinks holder. I want to find out my drink is leaking before my tablet does.

    I'd like my next bag to have an exclusive (is that the right word?) laptop sleeve at the back. The riprap shares it with the rest of my detritus so I'd like it properly separate.

    Flaps, they get in the way, and curl up, always need a top quick get to pocket, and straps. Crappy shoulder straps and unnecessary hardwear are a deal killer. I use my packs to travel a lot, and they have to be tidy.

    No "lifetime" guarantee. I rarely have issues with bag designs or quality issues, but for a brand that gives a "limited 2 years guarantee" tells a lot on how much they stand behind their products.

    I do not abuse my bags but I would want to sleep in peace knowing that my product is covered if anything happens. If Jansport is able to give a lifetime guarantee on their packs and they cost significantly cheaper, I don't see why other brands won't follow.

    Trolley cases whose extending handle kinks and sticks: thereby rendering the case next to useless. Expensive cases are as bad as the cheap ones.

    Poor quality and design. Let me clarify. Poor stitching, materials, weak/thin straps, thin material, zippers with tiny teeth, pockets not well thought out like a shallow water bottle pocket, and layout that is poorly executed.
