Review for Customized Medium Zero Messenger Bag
Neal Galloway – Verified Buyer
For the most part this bag is awesome. It was a blast getting to design it, and the online customizer really gives you a good idea what your bag is going to look like, as my bag arrived and looked just as I had imagined (in a great way!). All of the seams are clean and seem strong and one of my favorite parts is the easy-adjust strap. There is this solid clip mechanism on the strap that makes adjusting the length easy, fast, and secure. The velcro system is also ingenious. I got the Deluxe Drop pocket and it is absolutely perfect for this bag. I recommend it.
I have a couple of complaints however. The two large front pockets are great for organizing your things, but the way they are sewn they don't stick out from the main body of the bag but rather take up space from the main compartment. So if you put much in these pockets it reduces the capacity of the main compartment. I also carry a water bottle around with me where ever I go, and my previous messenger bags always had a pocket that was good for holding one, on the side or front. This bag has no good place for a water bottle. If you put it in the outside pockets, as I said above it takes up space from the main compartment and becomes bulky. And if you put the bottle in the main compartment it shifts around and you have to worry about condensation getting on your books and papers. It's far from a deal-breaker but worth mentioning.
All around solid bag and I give it a confident 4-stars. If there was a good place for a water bottle it would be an easy five.
