New straps

I really like the limited edition extra and differences, buy the new proprietary strap attachment isnt my favorite. I prefer the old ways and straps, feels more minimal

Alpha Messenger X-Pac - does it do the job?

Yes, yes and yes. I was somewhat curious if I was making the right choice given my initial selection for a cycling commute bag from another vendor was unavailable. However, when this was delivered as soon as I touched it I knew this was one of those purchases that you do not regret. The materials used including the zips and buckles look and feel quality. The design is very well thought through and the construction looks to be very well done. Obviously time will tell but right now I have no doubts. The design has meant functionally it is a pleasure to use and ride with. Accessing compartments is easy with one hand as the buckles and zips work smoothly to allow access to nicely laid out pockets and compartments. Now I just need to save my pennies to procure more of the product line - why? because this stuff works - saving time and effort. Well done Alpaka team.

Best day bag for iPad, Fujifilmx100v, and other “stuff”!

This day bag is too big; this day bag is too small but the Alpaka Messager X-Pac is just right!!! Enough space, cool design, well made- nice job Alpaka Team.

Amazing bag!

I have many bags including Chrome Industries, Timbuk2 and others. This really is a unique bag compared to those. So many pockets for tech gear, a very comfortable and ergonomic strap, various compartments for different items. The bag is high quality, well made and built for organization.

Like It, But...

I bought this as a replacement for my 7ven Mini Messenger. Tempted to look for the 7ven Messenger but they're hard to find and a bit pricey, so this was a nice alternative. Firstly, I am happy. I like the quality that's synonymous with Alpaka. Comfortably holds my Surface Pro and my Surface Go, which was the main reason I chose it, but can't help feeling they missed a trick. A few more inner compartments and even the card holder in the strap would have made this ideal

Need more attention to details

Lots of loose string/threads, and texture/materials feeling cheap but love the design tho.
