    Comments about Catapult Cycling Messenger Bag:

    I bought it for my daily use and also for short cycling trip.
    Enough room for daytrip with a compact camera which is nice. i can just throw the cam in the padded pocket with no worries of shock and damage.

    the plastic clip on the end of the strap seems a bit too weak. but not damage yet.

    Comments about Catapult Cycling Messenger Bag:

    This bag was a gift for my nephew. He was over the moon about it. He is an artist, and we filled it with some simple things like a sketch pad and some pens and pencils. He couldn't stop putting it over his shoulder, and opening and closing it. My only small complaint is that there are not a few slots for pens and pencils on one of the inside pockets. He didn't care, but as we were putting it together for him, a place for pens would have been nice.

    Comments about Catapult Cycling Messenger Bag:

    This bag is the perfect messenger-type bag for me. I have a small frame, so wanted something that would not be too bulky, but distributes weight evenly across my back. The medium in this is perfect--the bag wraps perfectly across my back and carries my wallet, 0.75 L water bottle, riding gloves, a Luna bar and extra layer. There are several pockets to help keep things organized, but not too many to constrict the main compartment. It would not fit a laptop comfortably, but I got it with work-free use in mind, so it's perfect for me!

      Comments about Catapult Cycling Messenger Bag:

      Fantastic price when it's on sale. Love the design and the tightness of it when you wear it. It doesn't swing in the wrong places. I have another bag that's about 5 years old and it still looks new. Great quality.

      Comments about Catapult Cycling Messenger Bag:

      I typically use the Catapult when cycle commuting on weekends, when all I need to tote about are personal items, a notebook and something to read. The strap length and ergonomics are perfect - my only gripe is that the end of the strap doesn't always stay in its clip, so it can flap about when I'm on the road.

      I love the compartments - not too many so I don't know what to do with all of them, just nice for me to separate and categorize my stuff as an OCD is liable to. It's roomy enough to have my coil lock in it, a small water bottle and/or my KeepCup, and even a bit of shopping. It's actually a good thing that it's not so big, which means I don't fall prey to massive impulse shopping!

        Comments about Catapult Cycling Messenger Bag:

        Overall, I am quite satisfied with this minimalist messenger. However, it would be even greater, if the front zippered-pocket can be made larger, so that a phablet-sized cellphone (eg. Samsung Galaxy Note series, iphone 6 Plus, etc.) can be slotted in conveniently.
