I absolutely love my new bag. Its very warm were we live in Summer and its always good to have water with me my new bag allows me to do that.My tablet fits in it perfectly . The bag does all that I want it to and is very handsome. One small thing, one of the clips on the strap has come loose a couple of times. I like to put the strap over my head and twice now the bag has nearly fallen. Its no big deal. The fact that it is made in San Francisco , one of my favorite cities, makes all the more appealing.

I have a regular Commuter which I love love love. Seriously, it's my favorite bag of all time and I want to take it everywhere.
However, there are times I go places that I don't need that big of a bag. I want something I can use to keep me organized, big enough for my iPad and Kindle, and doesn't scream "work bag".
The Mini Commuter in Graphite Tweed (Mine has black binding) is the perfect bag for me!
I can keep my iPad, kindle, iPad bluetooth keyboard, ipod, knitting project, wallet, phone, various cords, external battery, make up, medicine, moleskin, various pens/etc in it without overstuffing it!
For a small bag, it holds a lot! And the graphite tweed is just lovely. I hope Rickshaw keeps it in stock going forward. It makes the bag nice enough to use as a large purse, the waterproof backing leaves me secure in the rain, the padding makes me secure of my tech toys.
I love the inclusion of the Shhhh and Riiiip options! I was never a fan of magnets on bags until my Rickshaw bags. Again, would like to have some way to pull the buckle up so it's not hanging because that is the one single detraction from this bag. May try the velcro trick here.
Go with the tweed- it is very pretty and I've received multiple compliments on this bag already. As someone who likes to be prepared, this bag has room for more than you would think. I can't wait to take it on my upcoming road trips!

This is a great bag for taking with me to tutor students. I'm sure it is spacious but I didn't check that off under pros because I fill it to the max with everything I can possibly fit in it. If I think of it that way, it really must have a lot of room because I fit my ipad, notebooks, magazines, calculator, pens, plugs, phone, etc. etc. I get a lot of compliments on it and I always feel good buying from a great company like Rickshaw. I am trying my hardest to buy all American made products as much as possible and I look to Rickshaw as a wonderful example. The one slightly downside to this bag is the color on the web makes the bag appear slightly different than in real life. I may have forgotten to click on other views while I ordered but I thought I was getting a bag that was completely made of the tuxedo tweed design. In reality, only the flap has that design and the rest of the body is solid black. I still love the look but I'm hoping someone at the store will read this and make an attempt to add more views of the bag on the website (but if it was just not me seeing the other pics than I do apologize for not realizing it and everyone can ignore this comment). Overall, I have always been super thrilled with everything I buy from Rickshaw and am happy to report they seem to have an endless lifespan.
I've had this bag for a few days and it's nearly perfect for my needs to/from work and when I'm out and about. It is attractive and light and the magnet open/close is the best! It holds just enough of what I need to get around. Here are a few things I would improve on:
1. Put netting on the external side pockets so it can expand and hold a water bottle.
2. Make the bag a touch wider and perhaps a bit taller so we can fit in a folder or some papers without bending the edges. Right now, I have papers in there but it's just a bit cramped.
I love this bag and am looking forward to putting it through the ringer! Oh and the customer service at Rickshaw is amazing! I called to tell them was going out of town and they expediated my order so I had it to use in time. Thanks, Rickshaw!!

This is perfect for carrying my iPad, a coffee mug, a small notebook and organizing other miscellaneous items of modern life in a smallish bag for commuting. It's sturdy, stylish (get lots of compliments on it), and well-organized. If you are looking for something reasonably sized to carry your basic tech devices to go, this is your bag. The ability to customize colors is great!
