Been using the bag since the product launched and have no regrets! It is my main bag of choice for school, work and daily commutes around the city. Where I live there are extremes in weather changes. When it's cold, there is tons of snow; rain, heavy amounts of water; and during summer, scorching heat waves. This bag manages to endure all of that while staying pristine condition. I love the attention to detail, with all the pockets and compartments. The bag also reeks of build quality; great material, construction and design. Great product, highly recommended!
This is a great bag (second I've owned) with one flaw. If you carry any serious weight in the bag (laptop + book or two) the metal swivel on the strap ends wears out, initially stopping the bag strap from being able to swivel and eventually breaking and making the strap unusable. Really simple thing to fix on an otherwise fantastic bag.
Great overall bag. I use it everyday to hall my Mac and my iPad back and forth from school. The only downside is area for paperwork. There is not a "ton" of space so I must prioritze. The biggest positive is the easiness in use and comfort. Very Tech friendly.
I especially love the fixed bottom panel, allowing the bag to 'stand' upright rather than always laying it down on its side. Great and practical feature---its flexible enough to be pliant but strong enough to handle the task
The weather proofing over all was great---I was waiting for a ride home from work last week, and the only place to sit was a rain soaked concrete planter edge--I opened the bag and used iut as a barrier so my pants did not get wet--Excellent! My hieinie thanks you!
I wish that we could customize the shoulder strap--the quick release is a great feature, but allowing customers to select actual length and width of straps would make this the UR urban bag....
I love my commuter and switched from a more traditional leather briefcase for the weight. The design is intuitive, useful, fun and it's easy to pack and find everything I need.
I have two suggestions: The shoulder strap is not balanced quite right, so the bag hangs funny and slips off my shoulder, especially when it is pretty full.
Also the velcro is very loud, especially in a quiet courtroom or conference room--the resounding riiiiiiiipppppppppp gets everyone's attention. So an alternate closing system would be a nice option.
