No bag says grab-and-go like a trusty messenger bag. It is just the right size to accommodate everything you need for a busy day outdoors, and the numerous pockets help you avoid creating a tangled mess. The long strap fits smoothly over one shoulder, but it is most convenient to wear this type of bag cross-body to leave your hands free when running errands. If you need to carry a laptop, tablet, mouse, charger, headset, or other gadgets, go for a laptop messenger bag. Its shape and size are perfect for holding electronic gadgets, and it features special padding for extra protection. Leather is common for the exterior, but canvas serves as a lighter, cheaper, yet equally rugged alternative. College students and creative types often sport canvas messenger bags because they can easily give the bags personal makeovers with artwork, embroidery, and pins. Do not waste another minute wondering how you ever managed without a messenger bag. Find the bag you need in new or used condition on eBay, and it will arrive at your door in a matter of days.
