I spent a year researching bags before I made a purchase. I tried out various bags from Rickshaw's competitors: Timbuk2, Chrome, and Crumpler. I own several of Timbuk2's bags but none of them worked out as a go to daily carrier.
A few weeks ago I stumbled across a review I read about Rickshaw's Zero messenger on an obscure MacBook-centric blog after searching for "best large messenger bag macbook pro"; or, something like that. I vaguely remembered the name but the bag seemed completely unfamiliar. But the author seemed to love it. Genuinely so, even.
Attractive bag, free shipping and 10% off for being a first time customer. I gave it a shot.
The exclusive to Rickshaw Zero Tweed is smart looking, water-resistant, lightweight, stuff-proof, and easy to clean. The bag itself is wonderfully constructed with only three pockets and strong stitching. It works as a work bag when I need my laptop, some notebooks, and lunch; and, it doesn't mind if I shove my xbox, a controller, some power bricks, my gaming laptop, a mouse, some cigars (because of course), and a hoodie.
It's not the best messenger bag or the best weekender bag or the best daily bag. It's just the best bag I've ever used. It's the comfort no matter the situation that sells me every day. I can cram it full of more junk each day and it never get's too heavy. The strap doesn't dig painfully into my shoulder and the bag always sits nicely against my back. I don't think I could hyperbolize how comfortable this bag is.
Buy one and find out for yourself. You won't be disappointed.

This, along with my other Rickshaw bags are awesome. I purchased my first bag at the store in SF, they were extremely nice, and i think the owner actually helped me. Sweet bag yo.

Great customer service! I actually had to tweak my order a bit after getting some input from my girlfriend and all it took was a short email. Bag is great. The tweed isn't plush or soft, but has a more rough/rugged texture. Not what I expected, but definitely a pleasant surprise. This was my 2nd rickshaw bag purchase and I'm very happy with both.

It was bigger than I thought. I returned it and re-ordered and sent funds for the inserts.
It was very well made.
