Vibe 100 has 1.5L additional space & will carry crossbody OR hip
This is fine for what it is, and looks smart, and has a 7" tablet slot (which is big enough, barely, for a caseless iPad mini); BUT you are giving up 1.5L of space here, versus the good old reliable Vibe 100 Hip Pack - which can be worn crossbody style, too. (On the other hand, I have to admit that this new Go Crossbody DOES at least have .5L more space than the smaller, 2L, Pacsafe Hip Pack LS120, and a more useful rectangular shape unlike the wedge-shaped LS120.)
If you like the looks on the Go Crossbody, "go" for it, the quality and materials and safety features are all there. I just think the Vibe 100 is ultimately more useful.
Especially for flyers. There are two items that seem to get a "pass" at check-in counters and departure gates: shopping bags (especially from airport stores) and hip packs (specifically, hip packs, not slings).
I've gone up to check-in counters and the staff seems to turn a blind eye to my 4L hip pack, even when rotated to the front where the bulk is obvious, while a similar sized-shoulder bag on a passenger one counter over, got counted as one of their two allowed carry on items (well they tried to count it, but he pushed back, and they gave him a pass because it was smaller).
The hip pack can also be loaded up with heavier items like chargers and powerbanks and a spare phablet for watching movies and tv inflight, which helps the actual two carryon on pieces stay under the minimal 17 pounds combined weight limit. Once again, never been…
