The bag in the pic you quoted is not a souple, but some of the others I posted are, and I actually prefer the souples to the classics (due to the strap placement and more relaxed look). But, I haven't had any issues with any of mine and they look as great as the day I bought them. The small sizes in particular do more heavy lifting as I generally carry my laptop when using those. I think the accordian cinches provide sufficient coverage....i could only see something falling out if the bag tipped over (which is not really a realistic occurence for me). IMO, the perfect combo is the croc souple in any size....relaxed yet structured.
