Fashion
Known for their long single strap and large rectangular pouch, messenger bags have always been popular among couriers, cyclists and those who were looking for something practical to carry around their day-to-day essentials like a laptop or notebooks. Now, though, their appeal reaches just about everyone, including people that want something functional and those that want something high-end and fashionable.

If you cycle or walk to work or school, a messenger bag is the perfect style for you because of its sheer size. Not sure where to start your search? Try looking for brands like Timbuk2 and LeSportsac. They make nylon bags with padded straps that protect your neck and shoulder and velcro and zippered compartments so you can stuff in just about everything you need. And if you think all nylon messenger bags look alike, think again! You can pick from basic primary colors or fun whimsical prints.

While messenger bags are known for their spacious pockets and storage capabilities, there are luxurious and soft options as well. Brands like Michael Kors and Proenza Schouler offer beautifully constructed bags that maintain the basic messenger shape, but with embellishments like soft leathers and sturdy hardware.
