Comments about Catapult Cycling Messenger Bag 2013:

Bag is really spacious and you can put lots of stuff. Even if you fill it up and it gets heavy, it is still comfortable carrying it due to the thick strap.

However, the fabric end of the zip got damaged by the velcro strip as soon as i got it.

Comments about Catapult Cycling Messenger Bag 2013:

An overall excelente bag, but the strap is extremely short so the bucle does not work at all.
To the point in which I think that since I bought it on sale, they sent me a defective one.
I can hardly fit the bag through my head...and I am a small guy. In winter with thick clothes for the snow, it is hard to put on the waist.
Clearly a taller guy and water guy could not use it in the waist of across the chest.

As said, maybe it is a defective one and that is why it was on sale.
I like the bag itself, but could I change it with one having a longer strap!

Let me know. Thanks!

    It's as useful as a purse

      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.

        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
