My Review

Full review coming soon!

What I Like 👍
  • Simple design, with room for most everything I need it to have room for.
  • Conservative looking, in a good way!
  • It fits my 15" MacBook Pro (snugly) even if the website doesn't say so.
  • Dedicated laptop compartment means you don't have to buy a cache!
What I Don't Like 👎
  • If it were a little bigger, the 15" MBP wouldn't be too much of a squeeze.
  • Dedicated laptop compartment is a double-edged sword - if you don't have a laptop/tablet, you're better off with a Cafe Bag.
Use This If
  • You have a tablet/laptop that can fit comfortably in the Ristretto.
  • You want a simple, no-frills messenger bag.

Vertical versatility!

It's a step up in organization from the Cafe bags, but still can hold a lot of stuff of various shapes and sizes. I also like the design, particularly the curves on the flap and the black piping which contrasts nicely with bright colors. FWIW I prefer the older open front pocket design. If you don't carry a laptop (or legal-size papers) I don't recommend the Ristretto unless the design is particularly compelling, as the main differentiating function is the padded laptop compartment.

Used primarily for: EDC

Yes, I would recommend this product!
