With clean lines, a dash of outdoor style, and compact size, the REI Tranquility Shoulder Bag is great for around town. It holds small essentials, with extra room for a book, ebook or light jacket.

Rated4out of5byRugger78fromGreat Find!!!I don't typically write reviews, but this bag is worth mentioning. I was looking for an over-the-shoulder bag for a trip where there would be a lot of walking around in urban areas. I needed something that would carry not only my things (wallet, sunglasses, lotion, chapstick, keys, phone, ect.) But also those of my partner. Everything fits well, and the purse is incredibly well set up for organization. We have plenty of room left in this bag, and I'm never searching and rummaging for things. I also love the side pockets. It's so easy to slide sunglasses, keys and cell phones into them when I'm running errands. I've had absolutely zero problems with anything falling out of them.
The only reason I didn't give this product 5-stars is because after several months, the material has begun to fray somewhat. Nothing to terrible, and I've been using it for everyday use, and it takes a beating some days. I went out and bought a second one just so that I could give the first one a break. I'm now buying one for my sister as a present beause she has been coveting one of her own. I just wish there were better colors to choose from.

Rated5out of5byabqandreafromPerfect for 11.6" computer.I used this bag (in it's 2009 version) for years as a case for my 11.6" netbook. It was perfect. Totally, totally perfect. I could fit the charger, a few items from my purse, and the computer in the big with no problems, and little to no wiggle room.
I like my bags minimal and this one is awesome. I only wish it came in a teeny bit bigger size because my new macbook just barely does NOT fit in it. Oh, well....

Rated5out of5bylivininafricafromLove this Bag!My Timbuk2 shoulder bag finally gave out and I had to get a new one. When I found out that model was no longer available, I went searching for something new. I found this REI bag and it's perfect! It fits my iPad, a book, snacks, phone, wallet, keys, and water bottle. It's great for everyday use as well as short adventures around town.

Rated5out of5bysailor1994fromA Must HaveThis is the second bag I bought -- just so it wouldn't be discontinued when mine finally wore out. I bought it because it holds everything I need to take with me on a regular basis -- keys, cell phone, wallet, tablet, glasses. The small front pocket easily accommodates my smart phone and keys. The middle pocket handles my wallet, credit cards, checkbook. And the large pocket easily handles my tablet, glasses, cosmetics, a paperback book. It is rugged, lightweight, and seems virtually indestructible. The last time I found a bag this good was at REI and when mine wore out, I went back to buy another one, but they had been discontinued. This was my replacement and well worth it -- so now I have a second one!!

Rated3out of5bymks1111fromLove this bag but fabric is poor qualityI absolutely LOVE this bag. It is perfect in every way except for the fact that the fabric is fraying near the outer most zipper and I have only had this bag for a few months. I am a mommy of three young children and this purse holds everything I need for them and for me. I love the padded strap too. I would love to exchange this bag for a new one but the new colors are not to my liking. I am in the same situation as the last reviewer. I hope REI finds a better fabric and more color choices. The design of this bag is perfect.

Rated3out of5byCamperMomfromLove it, but showing fabric wearI LOVE this bag. I had been looking for a good bag to carry my iPad along with other essentials. They were all too small or were big messenger bags. This is the perfect size. I love the water bottle carriers on the side, and it has great pockets. It holds everything I need and more.
However, I have only used it two months, and the fabric is fraying around the outside zipper pocket. I usually have more space in it, so it is not because it is overloaded. I am the type of person who uses bags for years, so the fact that it is fraying after only a couple months is disturbing. I want to return it, but they don't have my color anymore to replace it, and it is the only bag I have found that has what I need so I am reluctant to give it up. I probably will keep carrying it despite the way the fraying looks, and hope that the fabric does not give way completely.

Rated3out of5byGear FreakfromGood but could be betterBased on the reviews I was positive that I would love this bag. I tried it out at the store and discovered that the padded sleeve and closure are too shallow for my full size iPad. The iPad fits in the sleeve, but the closure is about 1 1/2" too low to actually secure the sleeve around the iPad. Without the closure the padded sleeve gaps badly. I also thought that there were two diagonal front pockets. There is one diagonal pocket and the other diagonal is just decorative. There is also no handle, only the shoulder strap. It's still a nice bag for the money, though. I will hold off to see if the design of the bag is improved.

Rated5out of5byO FfromWorks wellI love that it has pockets on the outside for my big sunglasses and my bottle of water. Easy to dump or drink the water when I'm going thru airport security. I love the pockets inside which will fit my netbook and hold my new big smartphone. The slanted stitching on the front makes it distinctive and stylish. Yes - I'm pleased.
