Citizen Messenger Bag

Product Review (submitted on April 30, 2013):
I've had my citizen messenger for a year and a half now. Most messenger bags are a pain to lug around--they aren't balanced correctly and cut into your shoulder. After doing extensive research comparing several brands and consulting a few of my friends, I bought the medium and haven't regretted it for a moment. Although I don't bike, it's perfect for commuting to and from school in the city. It has plenty of room for my laptop, a jacket, a notebook and book, plus a few other random small items including a water bottle (which i don't have to worry about since there's pockets big enough outside of the waterproof lining!) It's really nice to not worry about the bag getting wet since I always carry a laptop. Riding public transit every day means that I have to worry about pickpockets as well. The design of the bag prevents anyone from reaching a hand into your bag when you're not looking--and the huge strip of velcro and two buckles means that you're going to hear anyone trying to open it to reach in. My one and ONLY qualm is that being a girl that carries a Chrome and not a purse, I wish there were a few more compartments with zippers for keys, cellphone, etc. Overall, the best bag I have ever owned and if my bag ever wears out, I'll be buying Chrome again.
