Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poorly designed I was looking for a weatherproof bag to carry my work laptop and change of clothes so that I could ride my bike to work (I live in the southeast and it rains a lot here). This bag seemed like a perfect fit, but I was wrong. The build quality of the bag is great, however there a few design issues that make this bag less than ideal. 1) The main compartment of the bag is waterproof, but the area where you put your computer, phone and other electronic devices is not. This makes no sense to me. 2) The bag does not flex and expand on the sides at all, and you cannot cinch the sides down. So the only way to go for more room is up (towards your head). 3) When you are wearing a helmet (which you should if you are riding) and the top of the bag cannot be rolled down all the way, it will constantly be hitting you in the back of the head and prevent you from lifting your head up. 4) The straps on the back of the bag are way too complicated to be of any use. They do not stretch and it is not a simple buckle system that you would expect. I’m not really sure what the points of these straps are other than to look cool. 5) The pocket on the side doesn’t stretch and is too small so a u-lock or water bottle won’t fit. Why only one side pocket is available is odd, but why they made it so small and without any flex is even more odd. If you want a bag that looks unique and different then go for it, but if you want a well-designed and functional bag then I would look elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Built rugged. Easy to carry. I use this as an carry bag for work. Squared up design offers a nice alternative to the baggy, rounded corner typical backpack. Nice slide-in notebook area inside fits my 15 inch macbook pro perfectly. Haven't been in the rain yet, I expect it will hold up nicely. Pouch on the outside holds my ipad pro perfectly. Its durable, not super light weight. I'd recommend it to anyone thinking large rain-proof courier bag.
