BARNEY RUSTLE BLANKET (L) is rated 4.9091 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Massive and good quality Like the other review I had previously purchased a Crumpler messenger bag that lasted close to 15 years...that one was stolen just before Christmas 2014 so in the end of year sales I went straight here to buy a replacement rather than hunting around. After placing the order I was worried that after 15yrs some companies slip in quality (companies trying to save money making inferior products hoping that they can still trade on their brand name) Thankfully my fears were unfounded.. Quality to me seems the same if not better it hasn’t slipped like so many things these days Pro massive size (i can fit spare clothes and shoes in this bag and i take size 14's) waterproof (was caught 2 days ago on the bike in a massive downpour) quality still there. (was worried after 15 yrs) Cons. Loud Velcro… seriously.. it keeps the bag shut nicely.. however… everyone in the office knows when I get in and open my bag…

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just right for School This is our third Barney we have two in the large and one in the small. This one is my son's who uses it for Middle School it is perfect for his books and fits in the locker like a dream. At 14 he is happy with the subtle coolness of the Barney!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent bags... Tough, large, light... No fuss I bought my Crumpler messenger bag back in 1999 and use it nearly daily. It's perfect for work, sport, shopping and travelling, both walking and on a bike. After 15 years, the only sign of age is the velcro's stitching coming undone. I am back here to buy another one so I won't be bagless when the old one goes back to Crumpler to be refurbished. Excellent product. A timeless classic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holds just about everything! As a bicycle commuter, I've typically used backpacks to carry my clothes and food to and from work. My Deuter Cross Air 20exp is a very good cycling pack, and holds a lot of gear. But going into a new job where I often needed to have my bag with me to carry a laptop and files and food and even shoes meant that the backpack had to go. I chose the large Barney Rustle Blanket because of its huge volume and the ability to use it comfortably on and off the bike. It's a backpack AND an office bag. It sits nicely on the floor next to my desk, gaping wide open so I can throw things in quickly, and also see where my stuff is when I need it. It looks like a work bag, but also has enough style to set it apart from all the other black and brown leather and vinyl satchels around the city. And it doesn't confuse things with too many little pockets and slots to hide stuff. It's just a nice, big, functional hold-all that also very conveniently holds a couple of six-packs of beer. My only gripe is that the blue bag doesn't come with a red interior, but that is a very small gripe. Overall, this is a very good bag - well constructed, sturdy, comfortable on my 6'3" frame, large enough to carry a full wardrobe to work (including shoes), nicely styled, with a super reflective strip along the bottom edge that is hard to miss at night. I'm very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this bag I got my first Crumpler bag 5 years ago for my 30th birthday. At the time, my wife asked me if I wanted the medium or the large. Not planning ahead, I couldn't see a need for the large one thinking I would never carry enough to fill it. 5 years later and now riding to work, I found the medium a bit too small to fit in a change of clothes, lunch, book for the train and some tools for my bike. This bag is the perfect size for what everything I need to carry now. If I wanted I could throw in another pair of shoes and there would still be extra space. Waterproof, secure, and with plenty of pockets, these bags are perfect for riding with. And my 5 year old bag is still going strong. If I don't ride, I will use that one instead. Still as strong as the day I bought it. Expect this one to be just as good.
