Loving my Commuter 2.1 so far! It's a bit early to know how well it'll hold up, but so far it seems extremely durable and well-made, with amazing attention to detail. I think my favorite feature is the magnetic enclosure system, which eliminates the noisy velcro ripping sound that so many other bags have. And it keeps the top of the bag well in place, so I rarely have to use the clasps. Also, Rickshaw tells you orders take 2 weeks to fill or whatever, but mine took not even a week, so I was extremely pleased at the speed of service.
I have two "complaints" that are really more just "would like to haves", and they are a) mesh pocket on the outside for a water bottle, and b) it'd be nice if the little front strap was included (it's sold separately under "accessories".) On the first "complaint", I can't get too upset, since I knew the feature was missing. On the second, I had it in my head that the strap was included, and was disappointed when it wasn't...but it was $5 and Rickshaw got it out to me in just a couple of days, so it was no biggie. But given how cheap the strap is, it would seem easy to just include with every bag. At the very least, I'd suggest the website have an "accessories" list on the order page so it's more obvious that the strap needs to be purchased separately. Frankly though, that this is my biggest complaint says a lot about how great my experience with Rickshaw has been, so I won't hesitate to spend more money with them in the future.

I bought this as a gift to my dad who usually prefers to use leather messenger bags. He goes through a lot of them because he's not very delicate when using them. But I've amended that. He loves the commuter 2.1 bag in gray tweed. Very roomy and sturdy w/ lots of organizational compartments. Just perfect for work and travel. Great craftsmanship. I also love that it's made in SF. Great job!

I ordered this as a gift and was really impressed with how nice it came out. I love the way it stands up on its own and has 3 different options for closing the bag (magnets, velcro & buckles). The size is great and it's a really handsome bag. Now my husband wants one too! I also feel great about supporting a local company making their products here. We will definitely be repeat customers!

A solid bag with great build quality. Its spacious and well designed. Expensive is probably the biggest knock on this product.

The Commuter is one of the finest bags that I have ever owned. As soon as I loaded it up and slipped it over my shoulder, I was entranced. Excellent fit, excellent capacity, a fine array of pockets and slots, superior construction, and fine looks. I want to hold it at night and read it a bedtime story, but then my kids get jealous...
