I LOVE THIS BAG!!! It gets so many comments and compliments each day! It holds everything needed for graduate school and keeps things organized. It held up to down pouring rain and blizzards here in SD! The print is very cool too! The bag is perhaps more money than some...but it is well worth the money. It is very durable and the shoulder straps make it a breeze to carry with minimal joint stress even when carrying 30# worth of textbooks! Would like to purchase matching accessories for this bag print...looks like rows of avocados.
Thanks for engineering the best bag ever!

For years I struggled to find the "perfect" bag to carry my laptop, portable HD, ereader and all my other stuff. I must've bought seven or different bags/backpacks and I was never fully satisfied until I bought my Rickshaw bag. It has all the right compartments, pockets, sleeve and space. It's stylish and attractive but isn't flashy. I don't want a bag that screams "hey, potential thieves -- there's a laptop in me!" I plan on keeping and using this one till it falls apart which, judging by its quality, won't be anytime soon.

I've owned more than a dozen bags over the past twenty years or so and every single one has fallen-short of being the perfect bag. Not so with my Rickshaw Commuter 2.0 - it is perfect in every way!!
Prior to my Rickshaw I was using a backpack for my laptop and the assorted stuff I carried with it. While I liked the way the Commuter 2.0 bag looked I was definitely skeptical about it's ability to hold as much as I routinely carry.
Just to be clear - I carry a lot of stuff:
A Dell laptop
A Bluetooth keyboard (for the iPad)
A Mi-Fi Hub
A couple of pairs of headphones
Mints, aspirin, green tea, packs of Starbuck's Via coffee
Chargers for all my stuff (laptop, iPad. iPhone and Mi-Fi hub)
Business and Hotel, Rental Car and Airline membership cards
Pens, Highlighters and a Stylus or two
A leather portfolio
At least a couple of magazines (to read during the 'no electronic devices' black-out on planes
A pair of sunglasses
A Brita filtered water bottle
(and additional stuff that I'm sure I'm forgetting)
My Commuter 2.0 arrived, I pulled everything out of my backpack (which I never really cared for) and began, still very skeptically putting it everything into it. To say I was amazed is an understatement! Everything fit perfectly - with room to spare! I have to admit that I modded the bag slightly, by carefully removing the stitching on the pen organizer on the right-side of the outside pocket (how many pens do normal people carry anyway?!), so the space now allows for a little more storage, but it accommodated everything.
All-in-all this is the perfect bag! It holds everything I need it to, it's comfortable to wear, it fits under an airplane seat and it looks great! I opted for pretty mainstream colors for the bag and flap, but had camo fabric used on the trim, which looks pretty damn cool.
As you can see I'm one happy customer. I'd highly recommend a Rickshaw Commuter 2.0 bag to anyone who needs to travel with a laptop. Thanks Rickshaw!

I am very pleased with this 2.1 bag. It holds everything I need, looks great, and is extremley durable. The only problem I have with the bag is that it claims to be waterproof, however, I put my bag in the shower and water got into the backpocket through the zipper. Also, water got into the front pockets (the bottom corners) where the big flap does not totally cover them. For the future making of bag, maybe the two folds of flap (on both corners) when closing bag could be just a little bigger so when closing it there are no gaps where a heavy rain could get laptop or important documents wet.
