This bag is awesome. Not only did I get to choose the colors, but the functionality of the bag is really cool too and I am such a hard consumer to please.
Having a zipper pocket on the back that has storage for everything you usually need without having to get into the main pocket where the laptop is actually stored. That said, there are too many places to put pens (who carries more than 2 these days, that is why I have a laptop and iPad in this bag) and not enough places for my blutooth headset and stuff that does not readily fit into long skinny pouches.
Because I used a promo code, with my order, I was not able to customize the size of the laptop sleeve. One a little smaller for my MacAir would be nice, but because it is a bit large, I just put my air and pad in the same sleeve. It would have been awesome if they had a pocket in the bad that was made for the iPad or what I thought would be even better would be the ability to have numerous sleeves that you could stack in there next to eachother and have them secured but removable like the main pouch is, with Velcro. But again, this is a minor pain and there are plenty of options for storing my pad within the bag.
One thing I miss from my previous laptop bag is a sleeve on the back so I can easily slide it on top of my carry on roller bag. You can easily put the handle of the roller suit case through the handle of the Commuter 2 and it has places that you can attach a strap, but it is not included.
The other thing I would have liked with this model and apparently you can do it with other versions, is choose all of the colors of my bag. It would be cool to chose from some pocket set ups as well. It sounds small, but if customization is the core competency of this company. You should be able to customize more. I WANT EXACTLY WHAT I WANT

Finding a great messenger bag has been... a challenge. Having shopped online and in person for months, purchasing and returning multiple bags, Rickshaw's Commuter 2.0 Laptop Bag was finally the perfect bag.
Of course, this is all a matter of what you're looking for. Many messenger bags are essentially a pouch with velcro, more literally designed for bike messengers. Those that lean away from that tend to become very much a laptop sleeve with just a little extra room. I expect from a messenger bag what I expect from a backpack - room for more than a laptop and a pad of paper - room to throw books or miscellaneous items in. And pockets - not two small pockets - lots of pockets in a few shapes and sizes to organize a bit of "life". And I don't want to look like an I.T. guy nor do I want the bag to look like a purse. You would get all of these benefits from just about any backpack - but it's damn hard to find even half of these traits in a messenger bag.
I know everyone raves about Rickshaw's magnetic closure, but omg, once you use it for a few days you will not be able to comprehend why EVERYONE doesn't use that design. It's the most convenient and adaptable closure imaginable.
Not awkwardly big or small, freakishly customizable, kind of perfect. There are those few items that you become really attached to, and it didn't take long to become seriously attached to my Rickshaw bag.
If I could give this bag 10 stars, I would. I love it that much. I use this bag on a daily basis as a work bag. It is professional enough for an office yet cool enough to rock in every day use. I love how functional it is. There is a pocket or space for just about everything. I'm not even using it to carry a laptop but I would imagine it would do a great job at that as well. I am super impressed of the quality. This bag will no doubt last me for years to come. Thank you Rickshaw for making such an awesome product. You have a customer for life.

I've gone through many bags over the years and this is the best one by far - a lightweight and efficient way to carry everything you need. The magnetic front flap is genius and makes for easy access when you don't really need to secure the bag.
