I love my Rickshaw bag, its roomy and spacious I can get every bit of my 'stuff' into it.
I wish I thought to order the Deluxe pocket as well as it would make life less lost in the bottom of the bag! I have ordered a matching folio to smarten me up!
I keep loosing my glassess case in my other bags, so I have sewn a velcro dot to the fabric one I have and it is always where i need to find it now.
It would be great to see a few more accessories to add to the bag. But its perfect for what I need, a functional smart bag for work and play :D
I really like my pretty tweed pink bag, which I use as a purse as well as an iPad carrier. It is plenty big for my glasses case, wallet, a notebook, my transit pass, keys, phone and iPad. It is lightweight which is a big deal because the iPad is heavy enough already. I like the easy slip strap adjustment.
I was in too big a hurry when ordering to notice that I would need to order some pocketses for the bag separately. I really like pockets. If you haven't already I might suggest you offer a "buy the $15 pocket insert" option before checkout to anyone buying this bag. But that's my only suggestion for improvement. I like that the pocket comes with a zipper, especially for some of the more sacred purse items....
I'm not gonna lie, I don't even own an iPad 2, but when I saw this pop up, I knew it was exactly what I was looking for. I already have a medium Zero Messenger, which has been great for everyday use, but sometimes I just want a neat little bag I can toss on my back for an adventure around the city. And this bag is perfect for that! The iPad pocket is also the perfect catch-all pocket for keys, phone, iTouch (so close and yet so far!), and anything else I need within reach. I feel like a little kid ready for school every time I throw on my Rickshaw.
The only downside, and really minor, is that since I like wearing my back higher up on my back, the adjustment buckle will sometimes sit right on my shoulder, which can lead to discomfort after awhile. I know there are straps to solve that problem, but if you didn't pick one up (like me), then just be sure to keep that in mind.
Overall, a fabulous light weight bag with minimalist design and all function.
I ordered this customized bag at the end of December and received it around the third week of January. Because the bags are handmade they do require 5-10 days just to make the bag plus the time to mail it out.
So far the bag has been great and I've been getting a lot of compliments on it. When it arrived it seemed way smaller than I thought it would be but it definitely holds a lot more than you think. In my bag I have my iPad, bluetooth keyboard, earpods, charging cables and stylus in the front pocket alone! The back pocket can barely fit a macbook pro 13" so I gave up on carrying that around in the bag but it definitely can tote your wallet, keys, waterbottle, lunch, books, etc.
I do wish there was more smaller pockets on the interior of the larger pocket but you can purchase those separately on the site. Overall the only complaint is that the color I ordered didn't really match the color online. I thought I had designed a Maroon bag when in actuality the colors were more magenta/dark pink. If I had one warning it'd be to make sure you're okay with your color choice being lighter than seen in the photo.
This bag is my third Rickshaw purchase. (My first two were zero messenger bags. They're both over a year old now, are carried daily, and are still perfect.) The iPad2 bag has been my weekend bag the past month and has already survived kids' baseball tournaments, track meets in the rain, some work travel, and spilled drinks.
The outside (performance tweed for me) wears well and is so much better looking than boring black. The inside is even better. I love the velcro pockets I can switch out as needed. The iPad fits nicely and I still have room for my camera, sunglasses, wallet, water bottle, sunscreen, and a baseball or two.... (You get the idea.)
I had fun with the colors on this one (tuxedo, plus, orange, plus turquoise): http://www.flickr.com/photos/rwentechaney/7168252322/in/photostream/
