I love my new bag. Got caught in a rainstorm shortly after getting my new Commuter 2.0, laptop and paperwork was bone dry.
Best bag I've had--and I've had a lot, including Timbuktu, REI, Overland, and more. The Rickshaw bag is everything it's cracked up to be. I particularly like the zippered pocket in the back for easy access to pens, small notebook, and cell phone. I will probably get the slim-line for days that I'm not lugging my computer, books, and various notebooks. Great product!
This bag is great! It fits most of everything that I carry (which says a lot for any bag!), and it's really durable.
It can get a bit heavy sometimes with my daily load (Macbook Pro 15" w/sleeve and hard case, planner, files for work, Moleskine notebooks, pens, a pencil case, charger and extra cords for the computer, phone, and ipod, and any books that I need for school).
The shoulder straps are really comfortable. I love that they are easily adjustable too. All in all, this is a great buy.
This bag has been my messenger bags for several months now and I freakin' love this bag! It looks fantastic, it is comfortable, the length of the strap is EASILY adjustable, and there are so many compartments.
The quality of this product too is outstanding. You definitely get what you pay for in this case, these bags are well worth the price. You get the same feeling from this bag when you buy a sturdy pair of work shoes, you know those shoes are going to last you a long time even though you use them everyday. I feel the same about this bag, I feel that it is going to last me a long time even though I take it to work, throw it into my car, use it on my days off, etc etc.
The several compartments in this bag are extremely useful. I can easily separate my items in this bag. I have a pocket for my flash drive/usb cables/headphones, I have a pocket for my pens/pencils, I have a pocket for my work keys, I have a pocket for my papers, a very handy water bottle holder (two of them!), and within those compartments there are sleeves to work with to further divide and organize your items! It makes finding your things quick and easy.
The build quality and the departmentalized compartments are my top two reasons to recommend this bag.
I am extremely satisfied with my purchase. My gf also really likes the look and feel of this bag, I will probably be buying another Rickshaw product very soon!
I love my bag! The only downside is that it's pretty big for someone who's not. I'm 5'4" and this bag is wider than I am. But it carries everything I need on business trips and the like. It works! It's great looking! It's sturdy! I like!
