      Comments about Embarcadero Messenger Bag:

      This is a great bag for a regular day or evening out. It doesn't have any interior pockets other than the back slash one (perfect for an ipad mini or a notebook) but it does have the front Napoleon pocket which is great for my wallet. I was a little sad about the lack of vinyl lining but it's not for heavy traveling so hopefully I won't get caught in any intense downpours with electronics in my bag.

        Comments about Embarcadero Messenger Bag:

        Great bag! Been using it about two weeks as my everyday purse. Fits everything I need and has room to spare. Light weight and fits nicely across the body. Love the color and the stripe shoulder strap. Already have received several compliments. While it doesn't have a lot of interior pockets I actually prefer that. The outside pockets are very useful for keys and cell phone. Another great Timbuk2 product!

          Comments about Embarcadero Messenger Bag:

          I have been using this bag for the last few weeks as my daily bag. I can fit in my small wallet, writing pad, pen and stylus, iPad mini, iPhone (in Napoleon pocket, or in an attached Shagg bag in case I need my phone handy while riding transit), keys, reusable market bag, zippered tote with cables and lip balm, headphones, coin and keycard/metropass pouch. If I want, I can also fit in my Kobo without a problem, along with the iPad mini in the back pocket.

          The strap easily adjusts and allows for the bag to be placed forward with ease, especially in crowded buses, streetcars, and subways. The Velcro flap allows quick opening and closing.

          Overall, this bag fits my everyday needs, I spend at least 10 hours away from home every weekday and I am a nut for organization. It has just enough pockets to keep everything at hand.

                I use this bag on a daily basis as my purse, which is perfect. It is big enough to carry all that I need plus a good book or something. It is comfortable and even when it is heavy, it does not pull on my shoulders. I love it and would HIGHLY recommend it to other.

                Plus it is from my home, which is fun to tell people when they ask since I live in Montana now.

                  Comments about Embarcadero Messenger Bag:

                  I carry this bag daily as a summer handbag. The size, shape, and weight are great for hot humid days. I have the white bag, and I sprayed it with fabric protector before using it to keep water and body oils from staining it. That has worked perfectly. Here's what works: size, shape, shoulder strap with pad allows cross-body wear at the store, interior design with separate compartment for iPad or small notebook, Napoleon pocket. I actually bought it because of the Velcro closure for the main flap--I hate having to snap buckles because that takes two hands. Here what it needed to be perfect: water bottle pocket on the outside, pen slot, small grab strap on top, bigger key pocket outside and a vertical phone pocket outside. Right now I use the key fob ( love that) but the keys have to go inside the bag because keys and phone aren't good together in the nap pocket. The front zip pocket isn't really big enough for anything I carry. A very good bag for daily use overall.
