Citizen Messenger Bag

Product Review (submitted on April 30, 2013):
Compared to the metropolis, the citizen doesn't sit that well on the body. I use to as a normal carry bag on public transport, and it tends to ride a little lower on the back whilst strapped across my chest. (It doesn't stay very high up unless strapped very tightly, unlike in the pictures above). I am 1.77m tall. Also, due to it's smaller size, the extreme ends of the bag along the line where the main top flap folds tend to collapse down under the weight of the strap / buckle when on the ground, and simple just remain folder when carrying the bag and swung forward. This makes the 2 internal side pockets VERY difficult to access when the bag is on the body / on the go.

I have none of the above problems with the metropolis. Other than the fact that the metropolis is a tad huge looking on the train, I think the larger size is way more ergonomic.

But on the whole, it is still a great bag. Just not up to my expectations from having used the better size.
