Nau :: Motil Commuter

I have a confession to make. I am a bag whore. Specifically a messenger bag whore. I have a couple that I cycle through, including two timbuk2 bags. So when Nau offered to send me their Motil Commuter bag to review I was all over it. At first blush what really sets the Motil (and all of Nau's clothes) apart from the rest is the fact that it is made from 100% recycled content, right down to the recycled wool felt on the shoulder pad. After a week or so of using it daily, I must say I am really impressed with the overall design. My only two complaints are that it's not as easy to adjust the shoulder strap as my Timbuk2 and the waist strap seems a little more clumsy. As a result, when I'm doing more than just casual riding, I'll probably grab my timbuk2, but for the rest of the time the Motil has won my heart.
