Citizen Messenger Bag
- Product Review (submitted on April 30, 2013):
Have had my chrome for over five years now and I absolutely adore it.
Aesthetics: i have the red & white combo which has worn very well considering it's age. Only for full disclosure and not to be read as a complaint, the white is a bit dingy and the reflective straps are fuzzy from getting stuck to the velcro).
Use: during biking, skating, walking, and travel.
Cargo: It fits plenty. I'm pretty sure I have the medium; I'm certain it is not the large. Inside, I most often carry at the same time, my camera (a Canon Rebel, a good sized camera) & its accessories, travel documents, makeup, snacks, wallet, water bottle, and top it all off with a rolled up hoodie..I never doubt it will fit one, more, thing.
Fit: Sits comfortably-even over long periods of time (I'm only 5'3"). Adjustments are easy to make, even on the fly, in motion. Super secure when all straps are in use and adjusted correctly...holds position on your back & everything inside in place, even when running through the airport.
Troubleshooting: Have had to wrestle the strap d-ring back through the buckle more than once, but now it's the integrated bottle opener so I'm sure that problem would no longer exist for me.
Bonus: Weatherproofing is legit. I have never had a problem with moisture (mainly experiencing light - medium rain fall).
