Pleased with her RS Civita

I was sitting at a long table this past week during the lunch hour and noticed that the woman next to me had a black RS Civita as her hand bag and a small red zippered pouch as her clutch, and used it as a conversational entree --

I see you have a Rick Steves bag...

She got it four years ago, on an RS tour (I believe, didn't get details) and it is holding up very well -- wouldn't count on it in the rain, but is very pleased with being able to pack "tall things" and with the roomy capacity. Comfy to hold / carry.
She said she didn't know how to find them anymore, and I pointed out that they are sold on RS's own website, which she was happy to learn.

She also had a lightweight packable jacket with her, giving an overall impression of a practical, well-traveled person.

I've tried other bags as substitutes, and keep going back to mine for the big trips. It scrunches up to nothing if necessary, but holds a lot when called upon. We've given them as gifts to other people and hear nothing but compliments.
