I was looking for a practical bag that wouldn't be "too unprofessional" but also contemporary. I found it. One of my colleagues had purchased one of these and showed it to me and I REALLY like it. This 2.0 is the perfect size for from the office and back -- I don't always bring home my laptop, but when I do, no problem. Plenty of space for files and what I need to transport back and forth. I don't travel a ton for my job but have two trips coming up in the next month and I can't wait to take it as my carry-on -- it'll give me everything I need. My favorite feature is that it stands up on its own. I can pack it without fumbling around trying to get it to stand up or having to pack things flat. I am definitely considering saving up and purchasing the iPad one as I would use that throughout my day as I go from one meeting to the next! Love that this is made in the US.

I've tried out a number of bags this last year or so (Timbuk2, Targus, Crumpler, et al) and this Rickshaw bag (Std. Commuter Laptop bag) was the best in show, hands down.
Thanks to all the team at Rickshaw for providing me a bag that will undoubtedly last many years.

I have had what seems like millions of bags throughout my career and this is the absolute best bag I've ever owned. It is roomy and fits my laptop, files, notebook, phone, cords/cables along with a small clutch. Even with all this stuff in the bag, it is not heavy and does not feel uncomfortable to carry. I think this is a result of the amazing and innovative strap. The padding is in all the right places and the strap can be comfortably configured to be worn over the shoulder or cross body. The best part of the strap is the auto-adjustment feature. While I am wearing it either over the shoulder or cross body, I can easily adjust the length without taking the bag off or even missing a step. You will not be disappointed in this bag.

Couldn't be happier with the purchase. Customer service was wonderful. Very communicative and informative. Living nowhere near SF (I live in CT) so I couldn't go and actually look at the materials in person made me anxious but all those concerns were put to rest the second I opened the box and saw the bag. The Performance Tweed is more attractive in person than I thought it would be and it blows me away that it's made from recycled plastic.
The bag is really the perfect mix of function and look. It's design was very well thought out and is just plain smart. Tons of pockets for organization but also a good amount of open space in the main compartment. The strap is ridiculously comfortable and super easy to adjust even with the bag stuffed.
A+++. I would recommend Rickshaw in a heartbeat to anyone looking for a great looking and functional messenger bag made by a fantastic company.
