I have had a hot pink Half mass Patagonia bag for over 6 years and it is by far the best bag I've ever owned. It is INDESTRUCTIBLE! I've dropped it off a cliff, drug it through an airport, packed it full of stuff, and washed it countless times. There is no other brand that even comes close!

I love this bag! It is compact with lots of well-placed pockets for everyday use but can expand to hold a lot when necessary. It is very comfortable to carry even when it is full.

I've been looking for a versatile work back for a while, that would fit a 15" laptop, infinite paperwork and not bog me down. I'm on week two using this bag, and pretty happy with it. It's inherently bulky, which is a little annoying on the days i'm dressed nicer and carrying less. But for most days, it's perfect. The laptop has a padded enclosure and there's a separate area for paper. Enough pockets, but not too much. The shoulder pad can limit how much you can tighten the strap, although not a deal breaker. In all, this bag works.

This bag is very well-made. It is durable and lightweight. The grab and go handle is particularly handy. There are plenty of pockets inside and out. They've thought of just about everything including securing the clip straps when they're not in use. My only complaints are these:first, most of the smaller, interior pockets are obscured when there are items in the main compartment and second, the main compartment is not as wide and/or as roomy as I was hoping, especially when the interior pockets are filled. I purchased this to use as a diaper bag. I think it will suit our needs, I just wish it had a slightly larger capacity (like the original Mass) and that the smaller, interior pockets were more accessible.

Good messenger bag, lightweight. I have used for both work and to travel as a diaper bag. Fits a changing pad on the back pocket, sippy cups in bottle pocket, iPad and headphones in the sleeve and a small cooler in the main compartment plus my wallet keys pens big plus is no velcro noise.

I LOVE this bag!! I bought it as a carry on for when I travel with my backpacking backpack and it's perfect. Roomy, comfortable strap, tons of great compartments and everything is easily adjustable.

I have one of these "half Mass" bags, used for the past 11 or 12 years and it has been all over. Needed a new one for travel and looked and looked at bags, and bought the same Patagonia bag. Quality, updated design, keeping the old for a beater bag, this new one is great as well. Highly recommend.

This is a nifty little bag. I'm a working (believe it or not) string bass player. I use the bag to carry essential extras I don't have room for in my bass bag (no, not the fish, the big violin). This includes at least a couple of gig books. The bag is well constructed and made of strong material, shows no wear at all after a couple of months of gigs, and looks as if it will last forever, another reason I'm glad it works so well. It's slim, carries easily, and fits into spaces in my car where no other gear fits so well. The straps let me carry it easily and securely from car to gig and back again, hands free (well, not free of other stuff). It could be used for any number of applications where one has precious documents, a laptop, etc. to tote. Excellent bag!

Oh Patagonia, you make the ugliest stuff on the planet. This bag replaced a similar version that was very easy on the eyes. The trim and entire interior of this bag is blindingly neon orange. I can't leave it lying open because it hurts my eyes. Otherwise the bag hits all the notes; protective, sturdy, adequate pouches, not too bulky. I just wish they didn't only make them in abhorrent color schemes.

This bag is the bomb! I love the color, love the fact that there is only one very small pocket inside that has velcro & the back slip pocket (not a big fan of velcro), ample space for my larger MacBook Pro (very well padded bag), plus room for all purse stuff, knitting project and more. I like the outer top zip pocket for my phone. Comfy strap!

I was hesitant on purchasing this bag because of the price, but it is well worth the investment! I am able to fit my laptop, large DSLR camera with padded case, notebooks, and misc items into this relatively large bag. Even with all the weight, it is pretty comfortable and not cumbersome during my about 1.5 mile walk to work. Inside organization is amazing! My only complaint is that I wish the daisy chains were on top, not under, the main flap to be more functional. This color is a deep marigold and is gorgeous. Stitching looks strong and is well made -- as most Patagonia products are.

I really like this bag a lot. I'm a very busy college student and I was always able to fit everything I needed in this bag. Great purchase!

I like the bag in general. I ordered the black bag with grey trim, which is oddly greenish. Despite that, I think I'll keep it. My rather large Lenovo Thinkpad fits well, along with my lunch. I'm 5'0" and the bag isn't ridiculously large for me.

This is an amazing bag. There are compartments for everything and it fits my computer perfectly (13" Macbook Air) with room to spare. The strap is very sturdy. I fill my bag up to the brim for work and even then it does not feel too heavy or hurt my shoulder.

I needed to replace an old travel bag that I was very fond of. I took a chance and ordered this bag because it looked similar. I could be more pleased. Excellent product. So well built, great organization, light weight and yet very sturdy. Far exceeded my expectations. A great purchase.

This is a great messenger bag. I was debating on this or the mini bag by Patagonia & saving some money, but I'm so glad I went with this one. Plenty of room for everything I need (holds a 15inch laptop, iPad Air, & multiple other necessities of my job with ease, without feeling too big. The shoulder strap is really comfortable. It looks great & I've gotten many compliments on it. Most importantly, I can tell it's very durable...so it should last a long time. Overall I love this bag & at the price it's definitely worth every penny.

Love this bag. When I first received it I thought it was too big and was going to exchange it for the mini mass. Glad I didn't. Took it on vacation to use for items I wanted to carry on plane. It was perfect. Plus it looks great.

I've had this bag for 10 years now. It's survived a 10-day trip to Europe, multiple trips across the country, four years in college and now five years in the work force. I literally throw this bag into my car every day, and it still is in great shape. No fraying, no rips, no tears. I love the padded shoulder strap and the laptop sleeve. Absolutely my favorite messenger bag ever.

This is a very well made bag. I used it to travel through Mexico and Costa Rica. It held my Googlechrome, my notebook and cellphone along with raingear etc. It can be used as a purse along with carry on or just carry on. Great color-does not show dirt, keeps everything organized and easily accessible.

I really like this bag. I am very picky and was apprehensive about trying a messenger bag. But I wanted to be able to get to my stuff without having to take off my back pack. This bag is very comfortable and roomy. It can carry my 15in laptop, two large texts, and various other items together. It's very well made- I look forward to using it for many years.
