Great small, waterproof bag for an iPad in case

PostedJune 24, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight
I bought the bag to hold my iPad, cables and other things I use everyday.
The back compartment holds the iPad in it's case, the other pockets organise cables and other things. The main compartment can hold my waterproof jacket for the days I don't need it.
The only negative is that there is a chance for rain to get in at the sides but it's minimal and my iPad has not got wet in the back compartment.

Looks great - but top can let water in

PostedMay 11, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Looks great
Cons: top can let water trickle in
This bag looks and feels great: the materials and stitching are as good as I can imagine and I don't doubt that they'll last for years. However, one corner or the other of the bag does tend to peak out from beneath the top no matter how I fasten it. (This probably happens because the sides are sewn on to the outside of the back rather than vice versa - so the bag's constructionThis means that water can trickle into the bag if you ride in the rain - rather defeating the point of a tarp lined messenger bag!
So this isn't a bag I'd carry books in or a netbook - not unless they were wrapped in a separate rain proof covering. In fact if I'd bought it for carrying a netbook I'd have sent it back - but ironically its main purpose for me is to carry a bulky (but superb) Paramo shell. It does that stylishly and and comfortably, with room left over for lights, a small tool kit and a sandwich.
