Whether you area man or a woman, if you find yourself traveling a lot you will find many bags just aren't appropriate. This becomes even more of a problem if you are a cyclist. Went getting from point A to point B either on foot, public transport or on a bicycle, the average handbag or manbag just is not practical, and backpacks aren't attractive!
But there has been a solution to this problem for many years already, but only recently are they being made fashionable. In the armed forces it used to be up to one person to carry important messages from one place to another. This person had to be quick and the documents had to stay safe, and thus the Messenger Bag was created.
These days the Messenger Bag can be bought in much more trendy styles (although the vintage army style can still be purchased), yet the principles stay the same. This is a bag for the travelers and for the men and women who need to get to their destination quickly, with all important assets kept safe while doing it all in style.
You can also get Messenger Bags built specifically for certain needs. For example, Serbags.com sell Messengers Bags that are suited for carrying a 15" laptop, or a 17" laptop. For the bikers out there they also sell bags designed to attach to your bike, relieving you from the misery of sore shoulders that an ordinary backpack would bring.
The range of styles is forever increasing, and there is always something to suit your look. My personal favorite is a "Black Canvas and Leather Messenger Bag" for the business look, allowing me to turn up to important meetings on time, with everything I need and not looking like I just got back from a hiking trip.
These Messenger Bags may not be for everyone. They are not the typical handbag, and may not be as stylish as a high priced manbag, but for those of you out there in need of a bag to help you transport your things quickly and safely, the Messenger Bag may just be worth the investment.
