Strengths:    Waterproof, nice colors, sturdy buckle, customizable strap system, easy to access w/o taking off

Weaknesses:    Too small for any real messenger

Bottom Line:   
I planned to and do use this bag as a backpack for school. For this it serves its purpose and I have the straps configured in the Timbuk2 way, one over the shoulder and the other attaching to the main strap at the sternum. For actual couriering (though it's too small for that), the straps can be reconfigured to attach at the waist like a belt.

So - works great as a backpack. Made in Germany. But not a courier bag.
