Aerostich Courier Bag
- Product Review (submitted on May 9, 2012):
If you do, get a Courier bag. Mine has hauled college books, a laptop, enough supplies for a small office, a water bottle, and my lunch for the past year. Yes, it's snug, but it all fits. I'm in the Northwet, and the only time water has entered the yellow cavern of this bag was when my old water bottle leaked. Winter storms, on and off the bike, failed to put more than two drops inside it. The corners are just starting to get fuzzy, and it has some stains, but not one thread has popped even when the weight exceeded 40 lbs. Campus is big, and I do a lot of walking, so I needed a bag that could survive when one term savaged a Jansport backpack.
About the only downside to hauling so much around is, the items tend to get their share of scars. Softcover books have their spines and corners worn, spiral-bounds tend to get hammered hard. But then I'm not nice with the bag. It gets dropped, slid, shoved around and occasionally tossed. Yet this bag doesn't quit, doesn't leak, doesn't do anything except take my stuff where it needs to go.
