Not at all.  I guess some context would help.

She's not the "purse" type of woman.  She's used a lot of tactical gear as "purses" in the past.  Her collection includes Maxpedition, 5.11, Tactical Tailor, LA Police Gear, etc.

The one she's carrying now that looks like the above pack has steel mesh in the strap to prevent cutting and, IIRC, a faraday-cage-like pocket to prevent scanning of things like your passport, etc.  She loves it.

I have been using a 5.11 messenger for several years.  It has been a very good back but probably more robust than I need.  My only beef is that the bag feels loaded even when its empty.  Maybe I just need to do more pushups. 

I have bought two 5.11 bags.  One was too big and one was too small.  It's hard to get the size right when shopping online. The big one is now considered luggage and the small one is sometimes used for off body carry when I travel. I want something just big enough for a 14 inch laptop and other stuff. Having to walk a lot changes your opinion on what is too big and heavy.  It doesn't do you any good if your not carrying it when you need it.
