Dear CourierWare,

HI. I bought a couple of your bags a while ago, and they're fantastic. I bought a small walking bag and a super deluxe courier bag, and between the two of them I'm pretty set for anything that comes up. I travel a lot, and there's been no sign of wear on either of them at all.

Just wanted to let you know that I have had my bag for 10 years and use it everyday! 5 countries, 2 kids and 3 small businesses later and the only thing that has worn out is the tag with your name on it! Make sure you sew an extra one on the inside from now on!
Thanks for making a great product. I appreciate it!

Dear CourierWare,

Was surfing the web about 3 weeks ago when I found your web site. Within 2 days, I had ordered a bag. Two days after receiving the bag, I was put on crutches due to a stress fracture in my foot. I love this bag, even on crutches it was comfortable and yet so convenient. As a busy college student, I have finally found the perfect bag. Thanks for making such a great bag!
-- Meg

Dear CourierWare,

I have three of your bags, all of which are bullet-proof. They are awesome bags that fit me very well. The first one is still waterproof and very comfortable after eight years of work and abuse. I just gave it to my brother and he loves it already. Thanks for the great product.

Dear CourierWare,

Today, only a minute after stepping off the streetcar, the rain soaked me to the skin, and I still had three blocks to walk home. The rain soaked my shirt. It soaked my pants. My trusty, waterproofed ANSI spec steel-toed boots didn't protect my feet at all. Fortunately, I completely forgot about a present in my bag - my girlfriend's copies of our vacation photos - otherwise, I would've been panicked. A New Orleans downpour soaks through everything - but not your bag. The interior of my bag was dry - not a drip, not a leak! I was amazed. I wrung two cups of water from my shirt, but the photos, my journal, and CD player were untouched.
-- Josh

Dear CourierWare,

I got my bag in 1986(7?). It's outlived 3 Kryptonite locks, 5 bicycles, and 2 knees. What else could I ask for? Thank you for making something better than you have to, the exception in a world where "good enough" is the rule.
