Citizen Messenger Bag
- Product Review (submitted on April 30, 2013):
For reference I am 5'3" and about a 14/16. Very broad shouldered and busty. I did a lot of research before buying this bag. I don't drive at all and walk between 3-7 miles a day getting around. I live in Seattle and needed something comfortable on my frame, waterproof and rugged and roomy. I have to say that I had high expectations and this bag exceeded them all. It is comfortable and not too big, I can jam all of my crap in it without worry that my books or craft projects are getting soaked. I like that it is hands free, once the strap is tightened it doesn't move which is a big reason why I stopped carrying messenger type bags in the first place. Frequently I am walking alone at night and I feel safer carrying this bag because my hands are free and it's not moving around or slipping off my shoulder.
I highly recommend this bag for walkers/bus commuters. Once you get the hang of it, it's very easy to move around your body without unhooking it. The quality is outstanding. The waterproofing stands out, I have been in a few absolute downpours and none of my things got wet. Overall this is the best bag I've ever owned and I've owned a lot of them.
