What is it?
The LE reporter Metro from be.ez is the ultimate messenger bag designed for urban use. This waterproof bag is designed with a tough exterior, and will hold your tablets up to 10″, and has enough room to hold other items such as notebooks, pads, chargers, compact camera, wallets, passports, etc.
Look and feel
Yes, it is. It is covered in PVC waterproof surface coating for an all weather protection. A hi-quality Nylon strap lets you hang this from your shoulder. The top pocket comes with a zipper so you can slide items like your phone or passport in. Velcro secured flap then lifts up to reveal another zipped pocket, and the main pocket. The internal pocket has padded separation as well as another zipped pocket for all those important items. A dual colour scheme gives you a high contrast effect. There is another Velcro secured back pocket.
What can it hold?
It can easily take in most tablets, a couple of notebooks, chargers, a compact camera, pens, pencils, keys, and you may even squeeze in a bottle of water or a small snack. Perfect for the commuter. The 3 zipped pockets mean you can store your extra important items more securely.
Taking it on a train
The best way to test these bags out is to take them commuting with you for a few days. Since our commute involves the train and a cycle ride daily, we thought we’d give it a go.
We found the bag to be sturdy. Being waterproof is a huge plus when you are cycling, as you never know when it may rain. It weighs just over half a kg, so that is probably a factor for all day travelling, but given the protection, it is a small price to pay. Overall, we found it very practical, though obviously it isn’t big enough to carry a laptop.
