Tell everyone what you think of your Rickshaw Medium Zero Messenger Bag.Rants & Raves Write review
This bag is the perfect size for me! I'm a 5'6" female and often carry around a lot of stuff. This bag fits everything really well and doesn't feel bulky and overloaded when it's full, which is especially nice on public transportation. I'm excited to try it out with my bike in the spring!
My Medium Zero is everything I'd hoped! I replaced a stylish pink purse with this equally stylish but far more functional pink bag for schlepping my laptop and work. My back is thanking me! I love the front pockets for easy access to water bottle, sunglasses, umbrella and wallet. And the removable drop pocket has been LIFE CHANGING -- I keep purse essentials in here so I can easily transfer it to a smaller bag. I will say that for the purposes of traveling I wish I had a Large Zero (maybe a future purchase?). Once my 13" laptop/sleeve and gear are in here and the front pockets are full there's very little room left inside for anything substantial (like Harry Potter book #7). Ideal for everyday use, consider going bigger if you want a carryon. And for the less experienced messenger bag user, there was a bit of a learning curve figuring out how to adjust the strap and take it on and off.
I absolutely love my new bag! Super easy to use, fits perfect for my 5'6 height, and fits all my stuff! Only thing I can think of is it's definitely worth putting in the extra $ to buy the padded strap add on. It's a little uncomfortable on my shoulder without. But over all the bag trumps all other bags!
Maybe because I got to customize it myself, but I love the bag! It's gorgeous, and exactly what I need when I want to carry less than a backpack's worth, but more than what fits in a large purse. The sturdy construction really holds up to the wreckage I put the bag through to carry a laptop, ipad, and other tech equipment. My only complaint is that the strap length I prefer puts the buckle right over my collarbone, which is uncomfortable, so as a result the strap is not at my desired length. Especially when the bag is full, it is really meant to be carried across the chest, not on one shoulder.
Being a small girl, I have to have the shoulder strap set to almost as small as it will go. This unfortunately causes the clip to dig into my shoulder. I ordered a shoulder pad along with the bag, however since the clip falls on my shoulder this isn't much use. Possible solution - have a pad that fits over the clip or have the strap in two different default lengths.
