I bought this after seeing so many ads. I expected it to be another ad purchase fail. I was so wrong. I carry it to all my work trips and anytime I go into the office. So many pockets, so much storage, and I love that it's convertible as a back pack. It's been used and abused for almost a year, but looks brand new still. It holds 2 full size Yeti cups on either side, all my gear plus carry on liquids and a small purse when I fly.
Fabulous bag for travel and work. Great quality. Backpack is comfy. Holds all of my stuff and is so cute. Will probably buy in other colors!
I travel a lot for work as a process automation engineer and have been in search of the perfect bag that can do it all: look nice, be both and office bag and “field” bag, be easily cleaned, is well organized and sturdy enough for all of my tools and personal items, and fit under the seat in front of me on a plane.
These are some pretty tall orders all things considered but the Gemini does a really good job of checking all of the boxes.
Being able to convert to a backpack makes it easier for me to use as a field bag, since I do frequently climb up the sides of large tanks in factories. All the pockets make it easier to separate my **** drivers from my chapstick, and the gold D-rings on the sides are sturdy enough to clip my hard hat to when I’m traveling!
The only thing I would change about this bag would be the option to buy the longer strap up from. I’m 5’10 so I did have to get the longer strap to use it as a backpack. It also would be nice if there was a way to fully close the top where little things didn’t fall out as I was climbing, but I don’t think the bag was really designed with that as a consideration and I have t had any issues with things falling out yet. A faster way to convert from messenger bag to backpack without having to loop the strap through would be cool (like a clip of some sort?) but mostly as a convenience thing. I am sure most people will use it as one or the other anyway.
Overall a fantastic bag for what I need! I’ve recommended it to other women in the industry too :)
I'm so happy that I upgraded to a gemini. Don't get me wrong, I love my mini but needed more space for my laptop, tablet and teacher essentials. Plus, the side pockets fit my water bottle perfectly!
