RickShaw Bagworks Standard Commuter 2.0

Today i'm going to be taking a look at the Standard Commuter 2.0 laptop messenger bag from RickShaw Bagworks.  RickShaw is another San Francisco based bag company and is inspired by the creative energy and urban style of their home city.

The standard commuter 2.0 is the largest bag in the commuter line and can fit a surprising amount of gear inside including a 15" laptop.  On the rear side of the bag, there is a flat organizational pocket which can hold your pens, notebooks, and even an iPad.  Moving around to the front, there is a single large flap that securely covers all of the compartments and closes with both magnets and clips (and even velcro if you need it).  There are 2 zippered pockets on the front side of the bag which are ample sized to throw in your laptop charger, iPad charger, phone charger etc.  Each side of the bag has built in mesh pockets for water bottles.  Enough pockets for you yet?  No, there are more!  The main compartment is where this bag shines.  There is a built in laptop sleeve which is attached to the inside with velcro.  The remainder of the main compartment is wide open and is very large.  It is lined with a vinyl type, waterproof, wipe clean material.  

Carrying this bag is going to be a breeze and very comfortable.  The shoulder strap has a very plush pad and a neat quick adjustment mechanism.  I was able to adjust the strap in a mere 2 seconds.  One of my favorite things about the bag is the material and build construction.  The bag I reviewed is built of an extremely tough nylon that should last...forever?  The build construction is outstanding.  I could not locate any flaws which is astonishing for a bag that is custom built.  I can't say enough about how amazed I am with the quality of this bag.  

Overall, like I said before, this bag is a winner in every aspect.  The standard commuter 2.0 that you saw here retails for $160 and is up there with higher end products.  Some of you may think it's too expensive for a simple carrying bag but you have to remember that the greatest things come with a premium price tag, not to mention you can customize your bag through the RickShaw website.  This bag is worth every penny and should last forever.
