The OGIO Rivet Messenger Bag (Black) is literally a working office with an adjustable, removable shoulder strap. This bag holds it all-17" laptop, iPad or tablet, files, folders, manuals, cables, mouse and even comes with an insulated beverage holder. Your laptop is stashed inside its own compartment as is your iPad within its own separate sleeve. The Rivet is opened and closed using dual front buckles attached to a large flap.
This large front flap protects the rest of the bag and has a zippered pocket on the outside for quick access items such as tickets. One side of the bag has a fleece-lined accessory pocket for your mouse, charger or cable. The other side of the bag has the beverage holder-a real plus especially if you're a day tripper. Beneath the flap is your organizer panel that contains a very clever crush proof Tech Vault with touch fastener that protects your phone in case of severe contact.
Next to the Tech Vault are two slip-in pockets that can hold another phone, MP3 player, iPod or similar sized item. The Rivet is carried by its adjustable, removable shoulder strap made with special foam padding. If you're not going to use the shoulder strap, there's a convenient, reinforced top grab handle. If you're the type that travels with a rolling luggage cart, the Rivet comes with a trolley sleeve that can be used to thread over your optional luggage cart.
OGIO has incorporated their IFOM (Integrated Foam Technology) foam panels to make sure your electronics are well-padded and secure while you're on the march. At 3.3lbs, it's not heavy and sturdy enough to withstand the rigors of daily use. To that end, the back panel that rests against your body is compression molded to further protect the contents.
