Cycling Messenger Bag Reviews
Visit any city with heavy traffic and you’re likely to see cyclists weaving in and out of the gridlock of cars onward to their destination. Look closer and you’ll likely notice a common item slung around their backs: the messenger bag. Messenger bags are satchel-like bags that are slung over the shoulder with a broad strap that circles around under the arm and around the chest, allowing the bag to rest on the bag. The single-strap design and placement of the bag allow for even weight distribution, even when carrying heavy items like books and laptops. As such, both students and working commuters often see them as the more comfortable option to carry their belongings over a traditional backpack, briefcase, or otherwise. It’s easy to see how messenger bags got their name. Even today, letter carriers use bags resembling messenger bags to deliver mail across their routes. And when you see those cyclists dodging inner city traffic, one of them could in fact be a bike messenger, a decreasingly common yet still efficient way to get messages, documents, and packages from Point A to Point B in a local area.
