Only 7 people? I guess Manhattan Portage isn't a well known brand outside of NY.
I was hoping this would do well, and there would be further great deals on gear from them. Holidays coming up and all.

Still very disappointed that my Manhattan Portage messenger bag - purchased at UO in Urban Outfitters in 2011 - was stolen from me quite some time ago. This happened well before I ever was on MD or realized the cult-like following that the brand has. I have looked many places online for it, but as I don't know the exact model I have found no success.
Gotta say for this price, I'd rather go for a lowepro 450 aw on sale. I got one for around 200 a while back and it blows this bag way out of the water.

I see that the user above me already did an adequate job describing why maybe this is a better option for someone than the lowpro450 (: still cool that you attempted a suggestion though. Just two very different bags.

Its understandable. My suggestion was geared towards people who want a bag strickly for photography gear. For general use the manhattan portage should do fine.
Those side pockets... are they separate from the main compartment? Or can you reach through those pockets into the main compartment?

judging from the pics of the interior I think they do not access main compartment, but are just on the outside.
Went and looked up this model on Manhattan Portage's site.

It's almost $100 more over there. So this is a decent discount. I just wish they had it in red as well!
I'm in at $175 for olive, if we get there!
well, that’s a pretty direct lift of ILE designs.

you mean this one that is out of production and pending a re-design?

None of their other roll tops look anything like this.

It also looks quite a bit like the unfortunately named ASNMNT to my eye. ::shrug:: Whatever. Current-production Manhattan Portage brands are kind of blah, but it's certainly a functional design, although I wonder if it will carry weight well.
really happy to see this great brand featured on Massdrop.
I have one of their messenger bags in a style they do not make anymore. Because it's 10 years old now and it refuses to die. I've bought other newer bags that look more flashy or hip, only to see them weaer out and break in less than a year. And I return to my slightly grungy looking but indestructible Manhattan Portage bag.
Now I have to decide between Miggo and Manhattan Portage.
