The strap is comfortable and easy to adjust. Many pockets to keep things organized. The bag can be carried by the handle without always having to clip the flap closed which makes it fast to get into and out of. Did I mention all the pockets for keeping stuff organized! This is a great bag and worth every penny. Durable and high quality materials. Fast shipping.

I ride my mountain bike 8 miles each way to work and wanted an alternative to a backpack (I'm getting too old to show up in the board room with a backpack). The rickshaw was the perfect solution for me.
While I'm not in love with the pocket configuration it surely does the job. It holds my laptop, plug, business cards, pens etc...plus shoes, casual shirt, pants and socks to change into upon arrival. There is more space here than in my standard backpack so it can work as a makeshift gym bag as well.
I don't think anyone confuses this for a messenger bag dispite the single strap. It looks like a large and somewhat stylish laptop bag. Since I'm too old to want to look like a messenger I'm ok with that as well.
I'm not sure if i would love this bag as much if it were on my back the entire ride to and from work. I was planning on buying a rack so I could attach it to my bike but it fits perfectly on my front handlebars. I just loop the bag handle over the bike's handlebar neck and it just stays (YMMV depending on your bike)
One final note. I live in DC but I have family in SF so I sent them to the rickshaw workshop to compare fabrics. They recommended the black waterproof sail cloth as the best looking/feeling option. I took their advice and I'm happy with my selection.

This was the best shoulder bag that I have ever owned. It was comfortable, I loved all the pockets, and I got tons of compliments on it. Sadly, my bag was stolen while I was in Kenya-- I will definitely be ordering a new bag from you in the future.
Also, many thanks to your friendly and helpful staff for answering my questions when I called to order my bag last summer.

I recently purchased this bag to replace an old laptop bag that I had because I needed space and more utility. While the price felt like a deterrent, it was well worth it. The overall design is great: There are plenty of pockets to store power cords, your lunch (without it getting smashed), your laptop, papers, and all sort of other stuff. Being in the Pacific Northwest, it's raining frequently as well, so having a waterproof material to keep everything inside dry makes it great. Also, the strap design is awesome for adjusting it on the fly and when you're on the run.
Again, probably the one thing that make someone turn away from this is the price. It isn't cheap, but if you can afford it, it's worth it.

I love my bag. The design is great, it looks good, I was able to choose the bag exactly how I wanted it (colours). I live in the United Kingdom and I know of no other company that offers this type of bag; a bag that can be made to suit every individual taste and style; with such a great array of colour combinations. Good work Rickshaw !!
