Best Messenger Bags, August 2010
The problem with shopping for messenger bags? Unless you’re looking for something for bike rides (Orange 20 has the lock on that market), most retailers stick with just a few options. Not Fred Segal Baggage. The wee shop stocks ten variations on the theme. Into leather? There’s a distressed leather laptop-friendly satchel from Marc New York ($210) and more formal pieces from Italy’s Il Bisonte ($1,270). Are you vegan? Try the simpler computer-worthy canvas bag by Jack Spade ($195). For the undecided, Knomo’s Bungo bag ($325) combines a leather flap with nylon.
