      Comments about Catapult Cycling Messenger Bag 2013:

      It was a great deal at its discounted price online. Enough room for 1" binder full of documents, wallet, tablet and phone. When I slung it around my body to try it out, the strap proved to be too tight at it's loosest setting. It has the look of Timbuk2's legendary messenger bags, but the short strap hinders its functionality as one.

        I bought the bag for use at work to carry my IPad and a few esintial items. I have found that I use it all the time. The bag is very versital and can be used in many different ways. The bag is very thought out and the quality is outstanding. I will be considering other bags in the future.

        Comments about Catapult Cycling Messenger Bag 2013:

        I bought the Catapult Messenger to carry with me when I trail ride my horses and want to carry come electronics with me. The size is just right and workmanship is flawless, but the strap is too short. When I wear it cross shoulder, the bag is snug under my arm with the strap at full extension. It would be nice to have the freedom to wear the bag lower.

          I carry around my ipad, a couple books, my packed lunch, pencils... this bag is awesome and small but gets it all in while looking better than my past bag. It allows me to bike with ease which was hard with other bags because I'm super small

          The bag is better than I thought. Everything I need for an office day fits perfecly including my Macbook Pro Retina 13 :o
          The only thing is that the strap is too short, I don't need to pull it up because I can choke my self, a bit more of strap would make this bag perfect.
          Also I miss a place or a "string" to keep the keys like the Classic messenger bagas have but that isn't a must for me.

            Very nice small bag. Big enough for a book, water bottle, IPad mini, packable raincoat and compact packable merino fleece and smaller items like keys, wallet, sunglasses. Strap is barely long enough. Shoulder pad means bag can only be worn on left shoulder. High quality feel with nice attention to detail. Cam-lock shoulder strap is a nice feature. Velcro closure is sufficient now, but with time and velcro aging, a clip might be a nice reassurance.
