Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, Easy to use, Spacious
Cons: Heavy

Overall, I love my Commuter 2.0 Laptop Bag. I like lots of pockets and places to put stuff, in addition to a space for my Mac, and this bag has more than enough pockets to suit me.

The sleeve for the computer itself is quite secure and padded, and gentle on the surface of the computer.

I really love the magnetized bag flaps, which mean you don't have to manually lock the flap closed, or listen to annoying Velcro ripping.

My only wish is that the bag were a little lighter. It's not heavy, but it's not as lightweight as I think they could make it, if they tried harder.

Would I buy a Rickshaw again? Yes, no doubt. Their customer service is great, btw.

I had this bag built for me and I love it. The Commuter 2.1 has room for my laptop and iPad and the extra nonsense that has to be carried from time to time. It does all this without feeling like a lead weight on my shoulders. The strap distributes the weight so well that I can get to work without a sore back. I got my SJ Sharks color on the piping and it was just enough so that I don't look like a cartoon.

Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, Easy to use, Great attention to detail, Great quality material and craftsmenship, Lightweight
Cons: A few common details missing, laptop can be difficult to put into full bag, laptop sleeve runs small, Too Small

Ok so I thought I wrote a review but I got an email asking me to rate the bag and did not see the one I posted so I'll do it again.

Overall I really really love this bag but when it's all said and done I'll end up returning it just b/c it's smaller than the dimensions led me to think (I have a slightly smaller bag that I can fit just a bit more into) and it doesn't help that the product webpage states the dimensions are 11" H x 15.75" W x 4.75 D but customer service stated it was actually 10" H x 15.75" W x 4.75 D which while not a huge difference is still almost 10%.

I really love the attention to detail that Rickshaw has, it's has a few things missing I've taken for granted in other bags and a few "issues:

Trolley strap: basically so I can slip the bag over the handle of my carryon luggage).

Intrusion: I would also love to see the main storage compartment not "intrude" into the space for the laptop sleeve, makes it difficult to get your laptop in and out when you're carrying a near full load.

Hydration: The side mesh pockets tend to come loose if you bump/rub against anything.

Sleeve: The laptop sleeve is minimally protective (as compare to what other bags have) and doesn't seem to fit my 15" laptop (despite that it should based on dimensions).

I went for this since I thought this would be big enough and a great quality alternative to a Bedouin or Bagjack and if the size isn't a problem (and some of the issues i mentioned) this is a fantastic option. As it is I'm looking at the Checkpoint Flyer and the Mission Workshop bags.

I thought about writing a big-o bullet point review about all the features and benefits. But I think just clearly writing that this is a great bag would do it more justice. I shopped and shopped and even bought a few bags and returned them (that was a lot of and's). I came across this bag on line and I was a bit hesitant due to not being able to handle the bag live, like the others. After reading all the reviews both good and bad, It was clear the positive out weighed the negative. When also I realized I could make a color/fabric custom bag I felt better that the look would be the way I wanted it to be. The color swatch for me was spot on! The fabric portion was perfect and felt substantial (Tweed Graphite). All the pockets and organization set up appeared to be perfect for my needs. (and now confirmed) The overall quality is very impressive. As soon as I can convince my wife that I need to replace my TBk2 mini ipad bag (which now feels cheap), I'll be making another purchase! P.S. The experience and communication was great and the bag arrived on time.
