I actually bought this bag to use as an everyday laptop bag. I constantly have a lot of paperwork and always carry my charger as well. There is so much space and plenty of pockets to keep everything separated and organized. Much more sturdy and durable than any other laptop bag I've used in the past. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a long lasting product.

I really enjoy this bag. I actually use this bag as patrol bag. It's comfortable and easy to organize your items inside. I like how this bag has lots of storage options and the material is very heavy duty. I retired my Hatch brand patrol bag and use this now. I've had it since January, 2017 and it's still going strong. No tearing/ripping. It's very well made and is highly recommended.

The ascend messenger bag is amazing! If you are looking for an EDC bag that holds everything and quite a bit more, then this is the bag for you. There are pockets and compartments galore for all your goodies. I have several First Tactical bags and pouches and they all "ROCK"! I put my 5.11 bag away in the closet when I got my First Tactical bag and now I am looking at purchasing the Summit Side Satchel bag. Good Stuff!!!

I gave up on messenger bags because they were always floppy affairs, that had lousy organization and didn't protect your stuff. After trying a variety of soft briefcases, backpacks, and other bag styles, I saw the Ascend Messenger bag and was intrigued by its construction and organization. I own a web development agency, so I'm always carrying around an assortment of computers, projectors, cables, adapters, notebooks, and other junk. Holy cow, I'm blown away by the performance of the bag after a few months of use. They thought of every kind of pocket I would need, and then some! For example, there's a pocket, either velcro or zipped, for any size knick knack I carry. They even designed the outer pockets to be reached into with the top flap closed, so if I'm at a show or conference I can easily reach into my bag to pull out a business card or pen. The padded laptop sleeve with robust velcro holds my computers in the bag securely. The shoulder strap is my favorite feature... one of my pet peeves is having the bag always slide off my shoulders. The Ascend has a silicone type substance fused to the material, and baby it grips! I have not once needed to readjust my bag due to falling of my shoulder. I really can't recommend this bag enough.

I recently acquired the Ascend Messenger Bag in black and have to say that it's a highly versatile, quality product that I am proud to carry on a regular basis. I would highly recommend this item and also look forward to future products from First Tactical.

After two months of use and looking at a bag that I can use to blend in at the office this one has excelled, the organization inside and the two expandable bottle pockets on the end will easily fit a protein cup mixer or a large Nalgene, inside the bag I can carry my laptop, IPAD, and everything else I need. This messenger also feels great on the back of my motorcycle on the morning commute. They also threw in a free hat, but my fiancé claimed it already... Don't be afraid to pull the trigger on this bag.

Love this bag. There is so much storage and the secret CCW pocket is a nice touch. Easily fits my Mac and all my school stuff without trouble.
Daniel B. from NYC on Jun 17, 2016
The Ascend Messenger bag is one of the top tactical messenger bags. It is well designed and laid out. The bells and whistles they added enhance tactical usability and are not frivolous. The size is very nice and can carry a lot but even 20 pounds or more, it still carries well and is comfortable to walk with and stand while it's on your shoulder. No matter how much I put into it, it still looks professional and never tactical. It is very well done.

This is a great bag, especially if you have a lot of stuff to carry and don’t want to use a backpack. I work in an office that has open seating, meaning I need to carry everything with me all the time. This bag looks professional, and has a ton of storage and features. The quality is really good and the strap has a good amount of padding. I’m really happy I bought this bag.
