Citizen Messenger Bag
- Product Review (submitted on April 30, 2013):
I debated whether to get this bag for a while due to the higher than normal price for a school bag although all in it wasn't that bad. I am a university student in Canada where it snows quite a bit, and while i ride my bike when I can, it's not always fesable. I wanted a bag that would hold all my school things, and keep them dry when snowing or sleeting.
This bag is quality, you can tell the way it is made it is meant to last. The inner liner is very water proof, and none of my documents have gotten wet, even in bad snowy weather. The strap is really comfortible even when the bag is jammed full. (I often have to take home lots of charts and documents so it is usually really full). The velcro on the inside is really strong and doesn't move at all.
My only small complaint about this bag is the inside smaller pockets. They aren't really big enough to hold all of my nik nak things such as a calculator (graphing so its bigger) day planner etc. Don't get me wrong, there is room there but it could be bigger for what I use it for. Not a deal breaker by any stretch though.
Overall this bag works really well for me. I use it as a school bag and in the summer when I am able ride my bike.
