    On the outside the citywalker looks more like a lowepro than a TT.. not a good sign…

    Yeah saw them at Hunts photo One of the TT rep’s was there. I’m not liking the material looks & Feels like a Kmart bag.The Black & Blue looks worse. It would have been nice if they used same material as my urban disguise, I’ll pass on City Walker
