      Perfect bag for everything outperformed all other bags so far
      Had to write a review! These are the best messenger bags available! I have tried all the other brands literally! even the best from San Francisco! I never looked at Manhattan portage as a competitor In this messenger bag game but my vintage messenger (lg) has really outperformed all of the other bags! It’s the most comfortable bag I have tried yet. I can’t feel the load as much cause these bags are so light, no extra stuff to weigh it down including a liner or a bunch of unnecessary pockets. I added one of my wife’s purse organizers and it’s perfect for me. every day abuse and heavy loads have proven this bag to be efficient in the messenger/delivery world, I did order a extra pad for the strap so we will see how much better that feels in the coming weeks

      I couldn't help myself writing a review...
      I bought mine (a Vintage black) back in july 1986 and it is still going fine.
      I use it every day for shopping groceries...
      Incredible capacity. I take it every where (week ends...).
      We have now a very close relationship...

      Simple and sturdy, especially the strap and buckle.

      Somehow, it's water-resistant and not water-proof; no internal zipper except for the small hidden pocket to store some loose change or a bunch of keys.

      Would have been better if a small carabiner keychain is provided inside the bag and another strips of velcro on the front for better closure when the load is minimal.

      I'm not a messenger and don't ride a bike but I do carry a lot of tools and stuffs for my job as IT Engineers, and here is the list:

      1 x 12" Laptop (in sleeves)
      1 x 10m RJ45 cable
      1 x 1m RJ45 cross-cable
      1 x Network Cable Tester + Crimpers
      1 x Screwdriver Sets (2 pieces)
      1 x 101-key USB keyboard (full size)
      1 x Optical Mouse USB
      1 x Digital Camera (2.5" x 4" x 0.9")
      1 x 5.25" External HDD (with HDD in there)
      1 x 3.5" External HDD (with HDD as well)
      1 x Gloves
      1 x CD-Album (35 discs)
      1 x A4 Sized Plastic File
      1 x Magazine (not for the gun!!!)
      2 x 1.5m 3-pin Power Cords
      1 x Jansport Mobile Phone Holder (on the straps)

      Talk about load, this messenger is a masochist; enjoyed being abuse. OK, I am no sadist but this bag is really cool!
