Citizen Messenger Bag
- Product Review (submitted on April 30, 2013):
I had heard a lot about Chrome bags but I never had the need to buy one until a month ago. My old backpack kept leaking water and it annoyed me enough to buy a Citizen. I was worried about space and was torn between the Mini Metro and the Citizen, but honestly I have not had any issues. I typically carry my 15" MBP with a case, a notebook, folders, book, some art supplies, water bottle, lunch and there's usually still a little room for more things. It can get heavy after a while, but the padded strap helps. I'm a 5'4" female and the bag doesn't feel too large for my size. So I would definitely recommend the Citizen if you're undecided. The craftsmanship is superb. I never feel like the bag will fall apart and I'm extremely thankful that is is waterproof. The weather hasn't been cooperating enough for me to ride my bike long distances with the bag on, but so far it has stayed put on my back.
Conclusion: I'd recommend you get one!
