TriDave wrote a review of The North Face Base Camp Messenger Bag on May 8, 2009
This is a good 'messenger style' bag. The reason I say that is because it is not a true bike messenger bag. This bag takes the standard/bland shoulder bag and adds best qualities NF brings to the table. It's well built, rugged, and water resistent. The only compliant I had was the zipper. It was not easy to close the zipper with the bag fully open because it would get caught on the corners. This was a real pain. It's a good bag and will work for 90% of the people out there. If you need a real bike messenger bag, check out Chrome or Tumbuk2.
