Citizen Messenger Bag
- Product Review (submitted on April 30, 2013):
It's been a little over a week since I've had this bag, so I can't comment too much on its durability. What I can say is that this bad is excellent for commuting! Previous to this bag, I was using a canvas shoulder/messenger bag. I'm pretty new to commuting to school (just moved to the city), but the old bag was a nightmare to ride with as it would constantly slip to my side. I did a bit of research and decided to go with Chrome since their bags seem to be "the right size" and have that nifty buckle system.
My only complaint is that the bag doesn't breathe well against my back (leaves a pretty big sweat patch), but I guess that's the price you pay for having a completely waterproof bag. I got caught in a massive downpour the other night and my computer and notes were all bone dry when I got home. This bag has already paid itself off since I would have damaged my PC and lost some pretty critical paperwork/notes.
I should add that this bag is extremely comfortable to wear, even when loaded up! I've started using it even when off my bike as it is more comfortable than any shoulder or backpack style bag that I've owned in the past!
