Rickshaw's Mini Commuter Messenger Bag


When I was at the Maker Faire 2010 in San Mateo Kent Barnes had a Rickshaw bag loaded with camera gear and other stuff. I liked the way it looked and I asked him about it. He told me that the San Francisco-based company makes all their bags by hand, and that the quality is excellent. I needed something to carry around my iPad, so I got in touch with them and they sent me a Mini Commuter Messenger, and I'm very happy with it. I use it to tote my iPad, as well as chargers, cords, pens, cameras, sketch pads, and bags of cashews.
