3V Gear Cipher Messenger Bag Review
This messenger bag does exactly what I needed it to do. My laptop, various survival equipment, even a change of clothes. Socks and boxers included fit in there no sweat. AND a G27 back up pistol and 2 magazines. The only thing I'd change is the closure, maybe a good old fashioned snap or an adjustable click strap. I saw in the reviews that other people thought it could be more secure but no one said it was a deal breaker. And the flap is heavy enough and the design is such that the flap stays closed but I'd hate to flip it down in the chair next to me in say a doctor's office waiting room and the flap flop open and my Glock slide out onto the floor, awkward moment indeed. Fortunately the sticky holster works as designed and the Glock stays in it's home,I tried to make it fall out. I'd buy it again and if I was really that worried I'd have my leather guy fix it.
I absolutely love this bag, but it's too small. Don't believe the description "will fit most 15" laptops." It's a lie. I am going to have to return the bag and continue to look for an EDC laptop bag. It is such a disappointment.
First off, I love the storage and how comfortable this bag is to carry. Fits all my essentials and then some. It's tough as hell and I love that I can attach my EDC pouch to the molle web. My only feed back would be that the way the bag closes isn't very secure and it doesn't snap, lock or some how keep the flap totally closed. Otherwise it's an awesome bag.
Great bag for daily carry. Plenty of room and pockets for all of my books, files, and equipment. Lightweight and easy to carry. Love the internal pockets and pattern!
I had to return the bag because the laptop compartment was too small. The description on the website says "Large laptop compartment fits most 15” laptops.” I have a 15” MacBook, which is a very common laptop, but it was so tight I could barley get it in and not all the way. Such a shame, if it was only half an inch wider. I just wish the web description wasn’t misleading.
Design and quality are great. Two not so great thinks: The shoulder strap is basically the worst one I’ve ever seen but I can replace. The lap strap is offset and presents somewhat of a security issue. Would I buy it again… yes.
very nice bag for my 14" laptop.
I like nearly everything about this bag, as I use a bag like this every single day for my job. I only crave is the closure system and the fact that it is a little floppy on the top and carrying it. The top flap does not cover the main section very well when fully closed, but I suspect the designers were trying to stay away from the zipper. Wondering if there is a new iteration of this bag coming up… Looking forward to seeing it. Everything else about this bag is totally rad!
I’ve had the bag for about a week now and all my items are securely in place. The bag is very comfortable and has great accessibility to all the pockets. My only suggestion to make this even better would be to add some rigidity to it. When it’s not full, the bag folds in on itself slightly. I think of you added a slim 3mm band of a spring alloy to the border. This would add stability and add no noticivly weight gain
Although my work laptop is too large for the red zipper, the bag has everything I need. There’s a pocket for Steno pad, mechanical pencil, eraser, pen, work phone, etc, etc. The only knock is the water bottle pocket is not large enough for my Big Frig branded bottle… I carry a smaller bottle. Really good bag. Price is a little up there but it works.
