"This does make a good general purpose bag. Roomy and waterproof, but If your looking at this bag for serious bike commuting or messengering i'd look elswhere."

"I used this bag to lug around a lot of audio and electronic equipment for field recording. It was the perfect size for carrying a laptop AND a bunch of other stuff (recorder, cables, mikes, disks, etc.) -- it is wide enough and tall enough for example to fit two laptops in their carrying cases with a little extra room at the end. The waterproofing let me not worry about being in the rain. There are several extra pockets of different sizes which were handy, but there is only one small interior pocket. I got several compliments on the olive color. The clasps and shoulder strap are extremely sturdy. A friend of mine immediately bought a similar (although smaller) bag from Manhattan Portage. I recommend this bag if you want something somewhat bigger than an ordinary day bag. It is heavier than a smaller bag, naturally, but the added weight is offset by its durability and waterproofing. The only thing I did not like was the large yellow tag on the top. It costs more than other bags but if it is what you need it is worth the money."

"USAGE: I use it to bike into work. I usually carry my 15 laptop, lunch, books/papers, lunch, and U-lock. That gets me to about 50 percent of max capacity, though carrying more would start to make things a little heavy. PROS: The bag is well balanced, easy to carry and hold a ton of stuff -- the inside is cavernous. The center brief case handle is a nice bonus, as is the back pocket. Also, the bag looks awesome. And Manhattan Portage bags last forever. CONS: Im not in love with the dual tall zipper pockets. They're fine for holding the various connectors and chargers that I don't use that often, but it would be a bit of a pain if I needed to use those daily. A divider for the interior might be nice too, but it's not essential. OVERALL: This is a great all around messenger bag. It's not perfect, but it's better than most. You get top quality without paying an outrageous price, which makes it a great value overall. I would highly recommend this bag."
