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.

What a perfect tote bag! I've found this to be the perfect size for bringing to work (paper notebook, wallet, keys, water bottle, small toiletries bag), or to go shopping with.

I worry a little about it getting stained because it's lightly colored, but I've thoroughly enjoyed the combination of tote handles and messenger straps.

Story

About The City Tote:
We wanted to create a bag inspired by the city, with the versatility of a tote, the functionality of a messenger and we thought there's no better place to debut it then at the 99% design conference in New York. A sophisticated bag with a long slim aesthetic that perfectly fits a 13" macBook Air, iPad or Moleskine, the new Rickshaw "City Tote" is simple, stylish, versatile, and customizable. We designed our new three-style tote series to be the perfect companion bag for your on-the-go essentials. 

A Functional Approach:
We've designed an innovative accessory system designed to work seamlessly with our City Tote family. Continuing our philosophy of minimal, sustainable design, each bag has a strip of velcro designed to hold accessories that can add function to your bag. We believe your bag should adapt, and our accessory system allows you to easily change your bag's configuration. Here's our full line of interchangeable velcro accessories, and we're steadily working on more.

About Design:
We pride ourselves on following our three F's of design, Form Function and Footprint, to craft a quality product with urban communing in mind. Next time you're in town, we invite you to come take a tour of our San Francisco factory to see where each and every Zero is made.
