- Recommend me a courier/messenger/laptop bag
I have a timbuk2 Messenger Large size which I actually bought in the USA. It’s good in terms of size and very hard wearing*. Plus has never leaked in the rain. Down side is that you have to pack it right, i.e. put soft things against your back with hard/sharp things at other side as it has no padding on the back of it which some messenger bags do.
Timbuk2 website shows UK stores in the ‘find a store’ section.

Got one of these, http://www.ospreypacks.com/en/product/commute_1/momentum_34 And a Timbuk2. Both ace.Posted 5 years agobigblackshedSubscriber
I’ve got a Chrome Metropolis. Freaking black hole. Eats everything you can throw at it. Waterproof, comfy. The only downside is they are quite heavy empty and there is always some joker who will press the seat belt button and release the strap. Not funny when your laptop bounces on the floor!
There’s a guy making bags similar to Archie’s grow bags / Black Rainbow Project who advertises on the LFGSS forum.

I’ve got a medium timbuk2. Been using it for commuting, work and weekend traveling after using a rucksack for years. taken some getting used to but I like it a lot, especially its simplicity.Posted 5 years ago
only downside is that I tend to have need to carry bulky items which I used to strap to my rucksack with a stretchy web net thing with hooks on. there just aren’t enough loops to hook things to on the timbuk2 so I’m going to have to get some grafted on.
I’ll see how it holds up to a winter of abuse.
