I can't imagine that skinny little cord strap being adequate for this big bag once it gets things in it. It's too thin,  probably would be unconfortable and stretch out quite once the bag is actually in use.

Realy like the design though. Very unique.

The additional photos help. The photo in the magazine doesn't really show how the strap attaches to the bag.
