wax canvas satchel
I purchased this bag for traveling and might use it for concealed carry on occasion. I have not used this bag for CC at this time. As for its function as a bag traveling it has done everything I've wanted it to. It fits easily as a personal item for flying and has plenty of room for gear I intended. Personally I'd like a larger phone pocket and a loop or D-ring to attach keys. Overall I am happy with the bag.

Great, discreet CCW / EDC bag
I onced owned a Moab 10, until someone asked me if I was carrying a gun in it. I then switched to a Zap 6, but sling bags are uncomfortable for me. I happened upon this bag on YouTube and purchased it. It is lightweight, and doesn't scream tactical. It has to sections for velcro attachments plus a zippered section. In the zippered section, I keep a trauma pack, wet wipes, and a couple lightsticks. I can carry my extended EDC, my CCW, my bible and reading glasses. This is really comfortable to wear, and durable. The pass through zipper and carry handle are also a great feature. I do wish the front flap was another compartment though.
ProsInexpensive, discreet looking, durable, comfortable to wear, ccw compartment
ConsThe only con I have on this bag is that the strap is sewn on and not detachable

Ok, but not worth the $$
At $65 this item is, in my opinion, nearly double it's true value. I bought 2 (one in each color) and am sending both back for a refund.
ProsThey do appear to be H20 resistant.
ConsJust a bag to put stuff in. Not very attractive to carry. Lots of other less expensive solutions to carry stuff!

Blackhawk Diversion Waxed Canvas Satchel
Purchased this after seeing preview and review videos on YouTube. I purchased the Earth tone color. Pics don't do it justice! Awesome satchel. Plenty of room for papers, pens, a book, magazine, notebook, my pistol and 2 extra mags, and a small first aid Kit! I use this as my EDC bag. Carrying the items mentioned above plus a flashlight, extra battery, knife, extra cellphone, rain poncho, medication and a cellphone charger/battery and cables. Satchel is a perfect carry option should you not be able to carry concealed on your body. Holds my G33 Glock with room for up to 2 extra mags. ( plus the items I mentioned above ) It is also large enough to conceal my full-size 1911a1 should I want to carry it instead of my Glock. I purchased this item from LAPG because of their price, availability and quality of their products and shipping. They were out of stock. Asked for an update when it would be in stock. Got a email about a week later telling me it was in stock. I ordered it and arrived to me within 1 business week. ( USPS Priority )
ProsVery discrete! Doesn't attract attention like my Maxpedition and 5.11 bags!

Very good satchel, but not quite perfect for my need. It's a bit tight for carrying a small 3 ring binder...an extra 1/2" of width would do it. It may stretch out with use. The small, interior stretch pockets are also too tight for my phone. Having one of them wider would make it useful for a small notebook, too. I'm going to cut the stitches to join one of the larger pockets to a small pen pocket to make it more useable. A few more smaller zippered pockets would be nice to have. However...it is a great concealed gun carrier. The top zippered access works great for a quick gun grab. Seems well comstructed and looks good. All in all a very useful and good looking rig.
ProsLooks and construction. Gun carry and access.
ConsA bit too narrow. Needs more small interior pockets.

i got tired of carring glasses, knife, keys, phone so it was time for a bag or sachel. This fits the bill. Well made, durable, good looks. Does not come with the diversion adjustable holster. I bought that too. Good product.

wife loves it
We saw it at the NRA convention Blackhawk booth and wife had to have one. It is supposed to resist blood, but I can only tell you a strawberry smoothie cleaned up nicely.
ProsSays all positive
ConsMaybe needs an extra small internal pocket or 2 for small items etc.

Does the shoulder strap detach on both sides? Or, I guess can it be totally removed is a better way to say that
No, the strap "does not" dis connect from either side of pack, also something I find unlikeable, the ccw ,pistol carry portion, slot, pouch, portion, what ever it is called, is not closeable, in other words, when you set the bag down to remove something inside the bag, your gun is in sight !! even if you keep it shouldered, when the closing flap is flipped open for access to something inside the bag, you can also see the gun butt or magazines, ect, a fatal flaw in it's design!!! snaps, Velcro, zipper, something should be used on this slot of bag to secure the privacy and safety of the weapon !!!!, if one were to drop the bag, out would slide the gun !!!! i'll have to modify the bag my self to rid this problem !!! other than this, I'm pretty pleased with it, I like my expedition fat boy better though!! better designed! but to, I "carry a pistol in my bag looking" !! the black hawk bag is quite casual looking !!! a good thing !!! P.F.

Negative, the shoulder strap is not removable. Not without cutting the strap at least.

Unfortunately the shoulder strap is permanently attached to the bag. No buckles. It's a lot like the military WWII British MK IV bag. ( Indiana Jones bag ). Hope this helps. I've had my bag for a while now. Approximately 6 months?! Sill looks new! Works great. And is comfortable to wear and carry. You won't be unsatisfied you got one!

Nope, it can't. I tucked the strap into the pouch (not the section where I keep my pistol) so that I can grab it out of my Jeep console without any snags.

The shoulder strap is permanently stitched and looped through a metal buckle on each side. The strap would have to be cut to be removed. See picture.

This item has two-inch webbing on the side for external pouch attachment. I wanted to know if i would be able to attach this to a belt (511 Maverick Assault Belt) and what I could use to attach it. Also, does it have some type of velcro or webbing on the back of it?
no this item does not have any sort of webbing or Velcro on the back it is just a blank panel and we do not show any way to attach this to a belt. we do apologize.
