My problem was bringing all my stuff back and forth to the gym...
iPad, warm up top and warm up pants, pen and pencil, heart rate monitor and chest band, ear buds, wallet, keys, and smart phone. The mini computer bag's storage places, both outside and inside make this a snap. To leave home, all I have to do is unplug my phone on one outside pocket from the charger and sling the bag over my shoulder, pull out my keys from the other outside pocket and drive to the gym.
Didn't have to buy a gym bad - too big/
DIdn't have to try and use a carry on bag where everything is dumped into one dark hole.
Didn't have to use a lunch box that didn't hold everything.
A friend at the gym has a Rickshaw bag and spoke volumes about the bag AND the company.
I looked at the website, chatted with folks who pointed me to just the right bag, and then kept me abreast of when the product would arrive.
Add my voice to the people singing RickShaw Bags praises in general and the mini commuter bag in particular.

This isn't the bag I purchased, but the Mini Commuter was an excellent choice for my mom to store her basics, sunglasses, iPad, a book, and was so unique that many people have complimented her. Quality Product. The Mini Commuter is a bit bulky for a purse, but the across the chest purse I bought her last year at REI wasn't big enough. And the handle is handy when boarding a plane; you don't slam people in the face! I love the option to use a magnet rather than Velcro (this was a present for an 80 yr old Mom), but it's not very magnetic.
this is an awesome bag...the pictures online do not do justice to the fine mesh of the fabric chosen for this bag. Its soft to touch and extremely fine but yet still holds true to the intended structure of the bag. I love the magnetic silencers that came with the bag, it makes it so easy to open and close the bag. It holds an iPad perfectly with a sleeve and leaves room inside for other miscellaneous items. It slings both ways diagonally or vertically down one shoulder, other messages bags seems to be more comfortable off the diagonal. The waterproof liner is great too protecting the contents but tends to crease a little after prolonged use. Thank you rickshaw, i love my little bag...

Almost perfect. Well made, good looking, surprisingly spacious. The only issue I have is the location of the handle. Since the handle is not centered on the flap (it's attached to the rear panel of the bag), the bag doesn't hang straight down making it awkward to carry.

I don't need a messenger bag that’s designed to hold everything I might need for a day; I just want one that'll fit the things I will need. My Mini Commuter Messenger is perfect in that regard. It fits my book (or e-Reader), sandwiches, small umbrella, camera, phone, pocket diary, sketch book, and an assortment of pens with room to spare.
This bag is not only comfortable, practical and unpretentious, it can also cope with drenching rain showers, keeping the contents bone dry. It's so good that I'm going to buy a second one.
