The case itself is small (5.5"Long x 6.5"Wide x 3"Deep). The sizing of the front padded pocket was pretty much perfect to allow quick access to the kind of gear we would carry on most outings. The front padded compartment can easily accommodate a few gadgets. We had no problems fitting an iPod and a cell phone in there for our trips around town. It would easily accommodate a thin digital camera as well, but we needed our's to take the pictures :-)
The padded pocket was also large enough to handle our Canon DV camcorder. I've always thought most DV Camcorder cases are just WAY TOO BIG! Which is a reason why I do not own one. This bag is the first multi-purpose bag that had a compartment large enough to handle the camcorder without it being too big to use everyday.
To make sure the bag stayed with you during your travels, Norazza used quality fittings and construction throughout. The belt loop has velcro on both sides of the loop...giving the wearer multiple options (quick release or secured loop-through). The shoulder strap is adjustible, padded, with a swivel detachable clasp... a quality feature not found even in some of the more expensive bags.
The Tri-Fold gets its name from the foldout sections built behind the front padded pocket. Once unfolded, you will have access to the other 13 compartments... more than enough to sort, separate, or hide "whatever". The cash and credit cards can be secured by zipping the main zipper at the top.
Passport and IDs can be easily displayed or accessed via clear zippered sections.
If I could wish for one additional feature... I would add some place to put a pen... like the one on my current bag (left image below).
I tried sticking the pen in the ApeCase (right image above) along the fold, on the strap, in the front pocket, but none of it worked well. A nice thin pocket along the outside on one of the folds would be a perfect additon to this excellent travel companion!
