1) The shoulder strap is kind of funky. It isn't detachable, and the adjustment mechanism seems like overkill. The strap itself is padded and rather bulky, and the bag is small enough that storing the strap inside is awkward (for those times when you prefer not to have a dangling shoulder strap getting caught up on things). If I can't detach the strap then it should be more compact.
2) There's a LOT of velcro. Too much, frankly. The flap is secured by two long strips of it and many of the pockets have velcro closures as well, so accessing your stuff is quite a noisy affair.
I could tolerate the shoulder strap arrangement, but the velcro turns out to be a deal-breaker. I can't imagine having this bag on a long flight and making a ruckus every time I went to get something out of it. It's useful to have around, but I can't justify carrying it as my workhorse bag (which it could be with just a few tweaks).
