Continued Evaluation

The messenger provides a stylish look with the added benefit of being light to carry. The messenger takes advantage of my MacBook’s form, which makes the the raidus messenger a top bag in my opinion. The messenger has many pockets, but it does not seem practical in my opnion. For example, some of the items I have do not fit snug in the provided pockets. A pocket for each item seems like a good idea, but unnecessary for some items. Though the messenger was intended to carry a 13” MacBook, the radius messenger does a great job carrying my iPad and papers. Final Thoughts: Extremely rugged, efficient, small, the Targus radius Vertical Messenger is well worth the price!
