Great little bag. Simple. Excellent as an airline carry-on and around town use. I would buy large size though next time

Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, Easy to use, Lightweight, Spacious, waterproof
Cons: Straps are very short

I love this bag as much as I thought I would! I saw it on a stranger and promptly ordered one. Heavy duty quality everything but end result is lightweight.

One suggestion: the robust zipper leaves a bit of a gap where the pulls join. This might just be a dream but if the same zipper could be made to close more snugly, the waterproofing would be perfect.

I also would love some way to creatively and securely attach a water bottle to the outside so it would not take up inside room. Don't really like to 'biner it to the back tabs as then it swings annoyingly.

The real and only reason I did not give 5 stars: the standard straps are short and this is gonna be a problem in winter when I wear puffy jackets. I am at the end of the strap wearing it over t-shirts now. I am a 5'6" average size woman with short arms so I can't imagine how this works for a big guy! I'll try it and I guess if it doesn't fit I will send it in and ask Rickshaw to customize it for me in that way. I really like the seatbelt type straps generally. Not as bulky as regular padded backpack.

Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, Lightweight
Cons: Difficult to use, Too Small

The bag is lightweight, looks good (thanks to all the custom options), and is surprisingly comfortable for not having any pads. I took it on a trip to NYC, and it was a great day bag even in the rain!

I have been using the bag for work, and wish it was slightly longer. When I put legal size papers in the bag, I have to be carefully not to zip the tops off. I did not purchase the Velcro accessory pouch, and wish I had to keep organized. Also, it would be great if I could zip the front pocket with one hand. Because of the way to pocket is constructed, I have to hold the edge of the pocket with my other hand to zip it close.

I bought the bag with a Living Social coupon, and got a great deal. I am not sure if I would pay full price. I am glad I made the purchase, and expect it to last a long time. It is nice that Rickshaw stands behind their products and have a great warranty, but hoping I will not need it!

Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, Lightweight
Cons: -

Absolutely LOVE the product!

Just miss a lateral external pocket for easy access when I'm carrying the bag in only one shoulder. It sounds silly but I really miss it from my last backpack.

Maybe it could be more paddled in the back, too. Maybe not. I'm still insecure about the safety of my laptop. Hope it passes!

Thanks and congrats for the lovely product!

Cheers from Brazil.
