Osprey’s FlapJill Courier is ready to ride across town any time of the day. The adjustable padded shoulder strap keeps your neck comfortable and a series of intelligent features keep you organized when you’re on the fly.
Unclip the single buckle flap to the main compartment and quickly access your electronics that are safely stored inside 15” laptop and tablet sleeves. On the outside, there’s a full-length zippered side pocket and a side water bottle pocket to keep you hydrated. There’s also a zippered slash pocket under the top flap to keep small items handy.
Reflective graphics and a blinker light attachment increase your visibility in low light.
I use my FlipJill as my personal portable office. It holds my laptop, phone, wallet, keys, pens, pencils, two water bottles, and anything else even a jacket or extra flip flops. I love how I can organize everything into different pockets, so I can easily find everything swiftly! In some ways I wish I had bought the FlapJill backpack instead, because I think it would be more comfortable when I'm walking or waiting in lines. I don't like having weight on just one shoulder. However, on a bike, it's great because the weight is distributed better. I think I'm more of a backpack person than a courier person, in retrospect. Nevertheless, this is my favorite bag and I use it daily!

Really love the 2 new features: place for bottle on the side and under the handle is perfect for the phone
Travelling with FlapJill Courier
I just used this courier on an airplane trip that involved layovers in each direction. I found that once I was in my seat on the plane, it was close to impossible to get into the bag. I should have expected that since it had the flap. It was too large to put on the tray table. I wish there had been some type of access through the flap to get at my tablet or other items in the bag.
I also wish there was an exterior pocket that would hold my boarding pass. I ended up carrying that in my hand after going through security. Even a slip-in pocket on the back would have helped with that - and with the tablet.
I found the shoulder strap wasn't enough to keep the bag on my shoulder once it was fully packed. I used it as a cross-over, but that was too heavy on the side of my neck. I wish there were shoulder straps to wear it as a backpack instead.
I love the exterior water bottle pocket. Easy to get at.
However, I do love the bag and will use it on all my travels. On the return, I'd added a small plastic bag to hold the things I wanted access to on the plane. Once on board, I removed that bag and stuffed the FlapJill under the seat. Perfect!
