Citizen Messenger Bag

Product Review (submitted on April 30, 2013):
I bought this bag as a broke-ass student who was on the verge of buying his first laptop. I needed something that looked and felt awesome and that could protect a laptop from the elements while riding a bike. Well, shortly after getting it I had a chance to test it. A tornado was passing about 20 miles to the East of where I was living and it was CHUCKING rain. So I threw some papers into my bag and hopped on the bike, riding around the block a few times. On getting back to my apartment, I discovered that NOT A DROP OF RAIN had made it onto my papers.

Built tough enough to keep out torrential rains, this bag has lasted me six years now and it's barely showing any wear. If you're broke and looking for a bag that you will never need to replace, this is it. My only regret is that I didn't buy the next size up! Putting an iBook G4 14" laptop and a couple of notebooks in this thing, I found it to be pretty much packed, though the pen slots, side pockets, and zip pocket were great for storing incidentals. The only way I could think of improving this bag would be to add a removable separator to the main pocket. Outside of that, nothing else is needed IMO.

Oh wait, there is one more thing. Add black with an orange stripe to the color options! DO WANT!
