Thank you Rickshaw for putting up with my incessant pestering for the last 1.5 months as I've been impatiently waiting to receive my pre-ordered Graphite Tweed Commuter (something that really shows their devotion to customer service).
The bag is everything I wanted: very spacious and comfortable and lightweight considering its storage space. The build quality is extraordinary and lives up to the hype I've heard about Rickshaw products. The only con is that the bag is a little bulkier than I expected, but this is something that's to be expected considering its solid structure (something I bought the bag for). Overall great product! The fabric is very attractive and was worth the wait.

I have been using this bag everyday for the past month and I love it.
It is the fourth bag I have owned in three years (different makes) and none of them have lasted or been as well thought out and designed as this bag. The moleskine pockets are a great addition as well.
I spent months deciding on what bag to get and am 100% convinced that I made the right decision, the laptop sleeve is a great addition and will shortly be buying an iPad sleeve from Rickshaw to add to my Rickshaw collection.
Great product and whomever designed it has my upmost respect and an amazing eye for detail.
To give you an idea about what I carry around in the bad:
- Macbook Pro 13 inch
- An A4 leather portfolio
- A4 notebook
- Personal Filofax
- Paperback Book
and it all fits perfectly.....I cannot recommend this product enough.
Finally purchased the bag in X-Pac Red. I just received it today and all I can say is WOW! Everyone should have one of these. It's perfect for someone on the go. I am petite 5'4" but the bag still looks good. Talk about QUALITY! Something that will last for MANY years! If you're looking for quality, you'll get it with Rickshaw Bagworks. I also purchased the pad folio in X-Pac Red and have been very happy with it. I did wait for the bag to go on sale but to be honest, I would have paid full price for it because now I see that it's worth the price. Like they say, "You get what you pay for" Thank You for such a great product -- Made in the USA!! YEAH!!! I will definitely be showing it off tomorrow at work!

Extremely high quality material and attention to detail. I had a problem with the cross strap anchor coming loose, but I shipped it back and it was fixed.
The pencil holders in the back isn't nearly the problem I thought it would be.
Not a lot of ways to organize small items.

I'd had my Timbuk2 bag for 7 years, and finally decided it was time to replace it. I had intended on going with another from the same company because it had survived some pretty brutal use, but there was a deal on Rickshaw bags, so I decided to check them out.
So glad I did. I LOVE my bag. Absolutely love it. It's clearly extremely well-made, and I expect that I will be able to keep it for at least as long as my previous one. It's also aesthetically-pleasing and the colors are very "me," which is important for a bag I'll be using every day. Here are a few of my favorite things:
-The pockets are really well designed. I'm a big sorter (one pocket for medicine stuff, one for electronics, etc.) and I'm easily able to sort into separate pockets AND then separate things within those. More importantly, the pockets are easy to get to and don't make things super bulky, as can often happen.
-The back pocket. This is the one with the holders for pens and the clear card-holder, etc. I love that it's on the back instead of the front because I feel a bit better putting things like credit cards in there, knowing that, when I have the bag on, they're pretty well inaccessible to anyone but me. This pocket also has a double-zipper, so it can be opened from either side. This is important to me because I wear the bag "left-handed" and I can still be sure that it's easy to open.
-It's sturdy and comfortable. Comes with a padded shoulder strap, which isn't the most plush, but does the job of making the strap not dig into your shoulder, even with a heavy load.
-The handle on the top of the bag is way more useful than I thought it would be. Didn't have one on my last bag, but I use it surprisingly often.
-Okay, this is my favorite thing. There are three ways to close the large front flap of the bag: buckles, and then you can either use a velcro close or a magnetic close. I love the magnetic close. It holds well (e.g., you can pick it up by the top handle and not worry at all about the magnets coming undone) and is QUIET. I haven't used the velcro, but I imagine it holds well too. But what's really my favorite? The magnets are velcroed down where the strips are, and the little covers on them say "shhhhh." Seriously. I love it.
