great everyday multi-purpose bag
I have the critical mass and half mass, both of which are great. The half mass bag has room for my work stuff, after work hiking/outdoor gear, and my dog's stuff, all in a size that won't hurt my back carrying. If you have a lot of days belongings plus a laptop, I'd go for the critical mass bag, but if it's just a days things then the half mass is big enough. Both great purchases and definitely worth the money!

Great bag! Perfect size for biking around town, taking it to class, using it as a carry on, simple design makes it perfect for just about whatever you need.

I went round and round on what bag to get and this size is perfect for school not too big- not too small.

excellent messenger/laptop bag!
I purchased the Half Mass bag in Fusion Sunset (color) and recently traveled with it as my carry-on, filled with my laptop and other stuff. This bag is fantastic...love the way it looks, the generous cushioning on the strap, the adjustability of the straps, and the optional waist/hip strap that can be used when the bag is extra heavy (in the airport between flights, it helps!). So far, I've found this bag to be quite durable, good-looking, and well worth the money. Way to go once again, Patagonia!
