    Comments about Catapult Cycling Messenger Bag:

    Main compartment can fit a Macbook Retina 12in (but not in the iPad-specific area of the bag). My everyday carry is a MB12, a few A4 folders, a B5 notebook, a packable light rain coat, a collapsible nylon grocery bag, medicine pouch, wallet, coins and keys. Still some room to spare. Everything I need is organized and has a place in my bag. It's good to see the strap design was carried over from the Especial Cycling Messenger (which I loved to use but found too small and heavy for daily commute). The strap is a genius design that separates this bag from most other brands', since the extra tail end doesn't flail around. However, I do want to see plastic buckles (or other mechanisms) added to the front flap of the bag, for added security.

      Takes a few tries to figure out how to put it on. Once on, it rides in a stable manner. Despite its apparent diminutive size it holds a lot. Pockets fairly well thought out.

      Comments about Catapult Cycling Messenger Bag:

      I have been searching for the perfect messenger bag for years, and I always come back to Timbuk2 or Chrome. The Catapult bag nearly hit the mark -- great strap length, very comfortable, small enough not to get in the way (though large enough to keep it well away from man-purse territory), and nice urban styling. If the bag were just a bit bigger (i.e. deeper -- I have the medium bag, which interestingly is deeper than the large bag), I have would have rated it 5 out of 5 stars. Still, you can never go wrong with Timbuk2, and this bag is no exception.

      Comments about Catapult Cycling Messenger Bag:

      Great for cycling! A little too small sometimes when I need to carry just a little more stuff. It generally holds everything I need; the minimal. It does not have much organization and lacks compartments. It really lacks a water bottle holder which made give up one star. Other than that, I'm satisfied with it's tight size and minimal everyday carry type.

        Comments about Catapult Cycling Messenger Bag:

        I've worn it in public carrying all of my basic gear as well as throwing some stuff I bought in there, and it was great and has remained comfortable throughout entire days of use. I have not loaded it heavily, but that's not the point of the bag for me; it is an excellent minimal carry bag that is at the very least water resistant, has very easy access to it's many pockets, and it feels like it is going to last awhile. For the price I paid, it has been well worth it.

            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.

            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.
