Comments about Especial Primo Waterproof Messenger Bag:

Been using it on my short commute to and from the office, it's fairly comfortable, straightforward design, solid construction, only wish they would have added 1 or 2 more compartments to the bag. The strap is only really made to use as a cross body strap, which is great for cycling use, might not be the best casual carry option.

all in all, still a pretty awesome bag

Comments about Especial Primo Waterproof Messenger Bag:

This bag has a lot if great features. Those are already named above. So far, it wears well and has enough space for what I wish to do with it, which is a basic commute and keeping all my things dry in the rain. The only downside is that it has only 4 pockets. The main compartment which has lots of space, a zip up compartment on the front beneath the flap, another smaller pocket big enough to fit a charger or a small book and lastly a small pocket on the side for a water bottle. This bag has no organizational pockets or places for pens and other gear. This means that unless you want your things crashing together all inside the same compartment, you will need to purchase another organization pouch for your smaller things. So youre looking at an extra 20-50 dollars depending on your tastes and preferences. I wish they would have added a couple more pockets or some organizational space in the large main compartment. Great bag, but could have been great with some minor additions. Unfortunately, the fact that it has so few pockets and no organization space is not something that they inform you about in their description of the bag.

Comments about Especial Primo Waterproof Messenger Bag:

I can't figure out what all the clips on the strap are for since only the length is adjustable. An extra long length of strap hangs down with a clip on the end that flaps when I ride. I will cut it off and seal the end of the strap. The inner compartment is not sealed so water gets in at the edges of the to flap.

The bag is awkward to carry unless it is worn as a messenger bag.

A sealed zippered inner compartment, some inner zippered compartments and dividers to keep computer separated from other small items would help and perhaps better justify the high price.

Comments about Especial Primo Waterproof Messenger Bag:

I love how light weight this bag is. The previous review about the strap concerned me. I've noticed that some of the pictures of the strap have it threaded backwards. I have not problems with the strap at all. Bomber bag that's very light weight, water resistant, and practical. Only drawback is only one pocket and wish the handle was a little more useful for hand carry. This bag is a winner for me.

      Comments about Especial Primo Waterproof Messenger Bag:

      It's a great bag, but the strap slips - it doesn't have the cam that most Timbuk2 messenger bags has. Also, it's rainproof, not waterproof - it's not at all submersible.
