Would be nicer to have the depth a bit bigger. It is a bit cramped to fit all that I need in it.

I have to fly every week for work and needed a bag that was durable and professional. I also have to carry two different 14" work laptops and various other odds and ends.
I looked at a number of messenger-style bags from a wide variety of vendors. Every single one was too big, too small, or simply didn't have enough pockets to meet my needs. I initially thought the Commuter 2.1 would be too small as well, but that turned out not to be the case. I've been using my Rickshaw bag for several weeks now, flying twice a week.
The layout of the bag is well thought out. The interior is spacious, the front pockets are convenient and have well-planned sub-pockets. The admin pocket on the back holds a number of items and still has room for an full- or over-sized magazine, e.g. Wired or Recoil.
My bag currently holds: two 14" laptops, one in the laptop pocket and one in the main pocket; an engineering-notebook; two 8.5x11.5" folders; two laptop chargers; a trackball; a 7" tablet; a thin novel; two mini-usb chargers; and a good handful of other miscellaneous stuff: gum, mints, pens, highlighters, work badges (several), keys, hotel keys and breakfast vouchers, and USB drives.
I didn't think I'd find something that met my needs so well and looked so great. Besides the size, I love the magnetic closures that cover the Velcro tabs. Every bag with Velcro closures should have these.
I can't recommend my Rickshaw Commuter 2.1 enough.
