Impossible to answer really. I have a Downtube bag I kept for my Dahon. It's a pain putting the bike in the bag because the bag flops about , and I imagine people fighting with bags twice a day on train platforms and so on must get quite annoyed.
The bag I have only has a shoulder strap - no handle, and it's annoying as the strap slips around when lifting the bike. The citizen bags have handles at least and might be easier to lug around. The bikes aren't light, of course, you won't want to carry it very far.
BUT - if I don't use the bike for a week or so it's convenient to keep the bike in the bag as it lives inside my house. And, if you don't get one now, you'll always wonder if you should have bought one with the bike. They do keep the dust off.
If you go into a store, you might be able to put the bike in a trolley. If you lock it up outside, bits like the seat post and the quick releases tend to disappear, at least in London.
