Yeah, I like it. I can finally carry my camera stuff with me and take a lunch without needing an extra bag. For the NYC trip, it'll hold the camera stuff, my second camera (Panny FZ18) and my laptop. Plus the monopod strapped on the side. Although I bet they won't like me taking the monopod on the plane. May have to stick that in checked baggage. I'll pack my sling bag in baggage, too, and use that as I walk around NYC.
