This is the first bag I've purchased out of passion rather than utility and boy am I happy! My custom zero messenger bag arrived yesterday and it feels awesome getting something that you've customised yourself and that expresses you just that little bit.
The bag itself is spacious and simple; I love the fact that as little material is wasted in the process of making it. It has the feel of quality and I can't wait to use it more.
The main thing I need to mention is the pleasant surprise that the medium messenger bag actually fits my 15' macbook pro even though its not technically designed to do so! Speaks to the surprising spaciousness of this bag! I also fit my iPad, a notebook and other miscellaneous items inside with no problem.
Although I bought this bag out of emotion, its utility is already becoming such a boon. Thanks Rickshaw for the thought you put into your products! I will recommend this bag highly to anyone who happens to ask!

I really love how lightweight and functional this bag is!. Having the possibility to remove the laptop sleeve it´s a great choice for short trips when an iPad is enough.
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!
Everything was perfect! In terms of design, the materials etc! The only small con I had was that the cross-strap thing was not removable, unlike Timbuk2's, so it tends to scratch along my right arm when I'm walking.
It doesn't detract from the awesomeness of the entire bag though, love carrying it around school! :)
This is my second rickshaw back - I have a smaller one also. They are both awesome . They do not have all the extra straps and clips dangling that so many messenger bags have! And the customizing was easy and - really custom! The way the bags hug your body make them especially comfortable.
