Messenger bag

I have always had a fascination with messenger bags, but have never found one that fit my needs.

I must admit. I really like having a bag. Whether a backpack, messenger bag, or sling bag. In high school I used three different backpacks in a school year.

Carrying your gear to and from work or school every day requires a reliable bag. This is especially true if a laptop happens to be one of the items you carry. I'm partial to messenger style bags because they are roomy and casual. The problem is that they are not always the best type of [...]

OK, I will admit it, I have somewhat of a carry-all bag fetish. But it goes beyond bags; it includes backpacks, briefcases, and even hardshell cases - anything that may be able to carry and protect my gadgets and gear. I also want unique bags - not the same old, same old, not what everyone [...]

Raaawwwrr!  What else would everyone's favorite loyal Wookiee co-pilot use to carry his gadgets (and maybe snacks) besides the Star Wars Chewbacca Messenger Bag?  Originating as a Comic Con exclusive item, this bag has been (somewhat) faithfully reproduced by ThinkGeek, with the main portion of the bag made from brown, (perhaps not Chewie-approved) vegan-friendly, imitation [...]

What does your messenger bag say about you? If you carry the Cheese by JumpFromPaper, it may say you don't take life too seriously. I have to admit when I first saw this bag's 3D cartoon-like design, I didn't think they were real. The whimsical look made me laugh, but it also made me want to [...]
