You can really cram a lot into this bag without feeling like you're wearing a laundry hamper on your back and the reflective fabric is super bright at night. I'd love to see an option for a buckled strap!

Only thing lacking is an external umbrella sleeve. I fit size 11 shoes, medium size purse, iPad, umbrella, sunglasses, garage door opener, a small bag of essentials, crosswords, and my sweater all in the bag.
The color is really a nice orange; the reflective quality gives it depth so it looks rich, not cheap. I like the way the clips are protected under the flap. They don't wreck your fingernails to open, either.
I got the shoulder pad - essential - and the smartphone strap case, which I use to hold my Clippercard. It fits behind my legs on the CalTrain, but is not too big to stay on my lap if need be. Seems to be waterproof as claimed.

I really like this bag a lot. I like the size of this bag (very usable) and the comfort level. I chose this bag over some of the other Rickshaws because it is totally reflective and the orange is such a rad color. It is neon orange!
I also like the water-resistant quality of the material and the durability. I like the hooks for keys and also find myself using the clips to secure the bag when I have it full of stuff--you can really pack it in!
My only issue with the bag at all is the strap latch mechanism. I knew I was going to be risking my comfort with a bag that doesn't have a mid-chest cam buckle, but I figured I could always modify the Medium Zero if I needed to. I was happily surprised by this latch, but I find that it is positioned oddly and i have to use two hands to get it tight enough (maybe the strap is just too long for me). That being said, the movement is smooth and the latch holds position well, it just feels like it might have been made for left-handers or put on upside-down.
I should also purchase a strap pad, but based on the issue I mentioned above, I don't know how I could position it.
Overall, though, I was very surprised by how nice the bag is and how much I enjoy using it.
