I switched from a cluttered shoulder bag to the commuter 2.0 and I have mixed feelings. The quality of the commuter bag is excellent and it looks really nice but it is bulky and a little heavy. I am having a hard time adjusting to the size but I love the organization and the fact that I am not breaking my back and neck by carring a heavy bag slung over one shoulder. Another pro is my computer is so much more well protected.

Man, I came out of another brand of bag and I'm really, really, really happy with this one!
First, it's light and just the right size. My last bag was too dang heavy, and too big. The truth is, I get just as much stuff IN it, but I don't have to carry the extra weight and bulk of a larger, less well designed bag.
Second, it's ORGANIZED. My last bag had basically two big compartments that couldn't be accessed easily. This bag? It's awesome. I can get into a back compartment for daily needs, the main compartment for stuff I need often, and then two big pockets for stuff I only need every-once-in-awhile. (Example: My inflatable travel pillow.)
Third, It's cool. I like the looks, the materials, and the way it hangs. And it's comfortable. Strangely, my last bag could only be hung on one shoulder. I don't know why that was, but it got old. I can now switch shoulder-to-shoulder, and it fits and feels great.
Downsides? I always carry a water bottle of my own, and the water bottle pockets are too small and not secure. I'm going to lose a bottle, for sure. Second, I actually use my bags bike commuting, and little extras like a waist-strap and a phone sleeve aren't "extras," they're necessary. I didn't know the bag didn't have these until I got it, and was disappointed that I had to order these things. The bag should come with them.
All in all, I'm super happy with this purchase, and would do it again and again. If this bag had come with a waist-belt - at least - it would've merited a five star rating, for sure. Buy it now, and don't forget the accessories, if you need them!
