Funky messenger bags have never been more popular. They look great under almost any circumstances and also make it very easy to access what you need quickly, whether it's a notepad for a college lecture or just your cell phone when a call comes in. You can take a shoulder bag off quickly and smoothly and it's easy to make sure that your belongings stay secure, even in a crowd. Some models come with special compartments designed to accommodate laptops and tablet computing devices.
Although most people buy this kind of bag for use in the office, at school, or around town, outdoor messenger bags also have their place. The style is quite popular with rock climbers, because a messenger bag can be carried alongside a rucksack or an awkward boulder pad. Simple, durable bags of this kind are also great for shopping. They won't break and spill groceries all over the sidewalk and fewer plastic bags means less non-biodegradable rubbish and a cleaner landscape!
