I love how fast you guys made the bag! It arrived perfect--no mistakes, looks really well made. Great price too! The range of colors I was able to choose from was satisfying.
My new City Tote is great! What I like best about it is the customization (I chose bright colors for summer: turquoise exterior with saffron trim and interior) and the fact that it's incredibly lightweight. I use it to tote my 11" Macbook Air, my Kindle and some notebooks when I'm off to work at a cafe. I also use it when I don't feel like carrying a formal purse around town on my errands. Another highlight: Rickshaw customer service! I accidentally ordered the City Tote Messenger, then realized I'd wanted the regular/classic tote instead. The customer service reps responded quickly and adjusted my order so I could get the bag I really wanted. Thanks, Rickshaw!
The only "con" is that I find the shape to be odd: it's longer than it is wide (whereas most totes are wider than they are tall). I have to dig deep around the bottom at times. But the shape is part of what makes the bag unique, and I'll adjust to it. Overall, I recommend the City Tote!
Ordered this City Tote to match my medium Zero messenger bag -- houndstooth outer with red waterproof inside -- absolutely AWESOME. Love that it has both handles and shoulder strap built right in. The Rickshaw deluxe drop pocket I ordered fits the velcro width and makes the bag exactly what I need. (My only wish is that there could be an optional outer pocket to slip a magazine or water bottle.)
My new bag is great. It reminds me of a musette but it has other uses. I love that I can use it with my iPad and it's easy to tote. I purchased the city tote that cannot convert to a backpack and I'm bummed about that, but that was my mistake. Make sure you pay attention to the measurements. I love Rickshaw products. They are well made and durable, yet stylish and cool to wear with anything.
