- Recommend a good quality messenger bag
That’s plenty of money to spend.Posted 4 years ago
If I had that much I’d buy a medium and a large Timbuk2. Maybe make the medium one custom with extra pockets, straps, colours to suit your needs. Keep the large one if you need the capacity or for overnighters.
I’ve had mine only a year but use it daily in all weathers and it is still mint.ARTSubscriber
What they said ^^^ my Timbuk2 in medium has 18 years on the clock and counting, the diddy one less so, but is in daily use.
That said lots more choice these days, had a hankering for a while for a Freitag bag, but that’s the problem when you’ve gone and bought stuff that actually lasts – you don’t need another one 😉Posted 4 years agoTooTallMember
I was going to recommend an Ortlieb messenger bag pro, until I saw how much they were! I got mine for £48 on FleaBay from a hipster who didn;t want his fakenger kit any more. I’ve always found that carrying weight on one shoulder sub-optimal to two shoulders. The Ortlieb Pro is tough as ye olde boots and comfortable to ride with.Posted 4 years agopop larkinMember
I was having the same dilemma but concerned at buying something so expensive that I may not get on with in real life so have just bought a dakine Granville from 2seasons for £30- reduced from £70- takes a laptop in a seperate padded section and overall very pleased- not had rain yet but seems like will keep the water outPosted 4 years ago
