Light weight, comfortable, durable, waterproof!!
I'm 5'10" and the medium is the perfect size for most of my daily commuting needs. I can squeeze my bike U-Lock, a pair of shoes, a rain jacket, my bike pump/tools, and all of my other daily nick-nacks. These bags are very high quality.
My one complaint after using it daily for two years is that the velcro on the outside does lose a bit of its strength over time. If you plan on using your bag a lot and sometimes over-stuffing it I would opt for the clips. I will on my next one.

Amazing, it did take a while to get used to riding with this bag. Also I wouldn't pull too hard on the tab thing for adjusting the strap, mine came right off.

This is my first "Everyday Carry" bag, and I'm liking it a lot. It looks like it's going to last for ages, given its tough materials and construction. I like the modular concept, too. I ordered it with the regular-sized Deluxe drop pocket, and after using the bag for a little while and getting an idea of what I could carry in it, I ordered a Large Deluxe drop pocket. The two together give me a good bit of organization, with nothing going in the middle of the bag itself but my 10" tablet and a 16oz. travel mug.
I'm glad the bag itself is lightweight, because I'm now carrying about 8lbs of stuff in it! My usual load will give you an idea of what you can get into this thing (the Medium Zero bag):
Nexus 10 tablet in a cover
16oz Contigo travel mug w/ water
Leatherman Wingman (I folded back the Wingman's cover flap, secured it with a rubber band, and used the cover's velcro to stick it to the velcro strip inside the Rickshaw bag, so the multi-tool is always handy just inside the bag's opening.
Kershaw pocket knife
Set of small screwdrivers
Zippo lighter (I don't smoke, but I like having this handy for some reason)
Digital point-and-shoot camera
Kindle Paperwhite in cover
HTC One X in case
USB backup battery
Shure earbuds in Digital Innovations Nest case
Old iPhone earbuds in Digital Innovations Nest case (for use with phone)
Assorted antacids, pain relievers, breath mints, prescription meds, gum
"First Aid Kit" (Band Aids and Neosporin in a little ziploc bag)
I don't take my bag on a quick trip to the store, but I've been carrying it anywhere I think I'll be spending a couple of hours (or waiting, say, 10 minutes or more). With it, I've got entertainment, food, water, tools, first aid...as a Boy Scout, I was never this prepared!

Great bag. Easy to use and light weight - which is essential! Every extra ounce on my shoulder feels like a pound, but I was surprised at how lightweight the bag felt. Nice snug fit too.
It would be cool if it had an expandable feature to make the bag a little bigger for certain occasions.
The waterproofing got tested in a big way today (I live in London at the moment), so that was great and I am really happy I added the waterproof sailcloth lining feature.
A small outside pocket or zipper something or other would be useful. You have to open the whole bag to get to anything. A quick access or small exterior pocket might be useful.
Also, another perhaps thin interior separator or something for wet umbrellas (or an umbrella pouch!) or other items that you don't want to have in the main compartment.
Overall, I love the bag. I even had some team members thinking about ordering a bag themselves.. their only concern are the shipping costs. Tons of commuters and cyclists in London, so it is a great market to serve!
Hope this is helpful. Thanks for the cool bag!
