Best Messenger Bags for Men: The Carga 0W3

Walking past the isle of dusty old anatomy books from an age before you were born, you finally hand over the Van Gogh catalog to the library clerk.  Signing the rental forms hurriedly as you notice the elevator lobby thats building up people. Knowing that the elevator takes ages for it to return back to the floor you're in, you're in a frenzy to get there before it alights to the ground floor. With a swish of your hand, you stuff the book in your bag without even looking at it. Slinging the strap over your shoulder making a swift run while avoiding glances from other uptight people in the library you squeeze yourself inside the cramped old  elevator.  A few seconds of awkwardness, you grasp the soft leather strap of your bag for comfort. Finally the bell rings, the metal elevator door opens in a snappy clank. You head out to the quadrangle of your college. You then notice the drizzling rain coming from the gaps of the trees, you're late for class. You then lift your Carga 0W3  bag on top of your head as you make a jog for the next four buildings to your life drawing class.

Best Messenger Bags for Men: The Dakine Hudson Denim Messenger

Imagine this: You just woke up from a friday night. The light of the day is glaring at you in the face from the slight curtain shade opening.

Suddenly, you remember that you have a brunch meeting at 10 am with a client about a website that you're set to develop. You then rush for a quick shower. Stumbling to get your perfect pair of jeans and shirt for the occasion.

You then grab your laptop and stuff it in the Internal padded sleeve of your Dakine Hudson Denim Messenger bag, inserting some pens and notepad in it's interior organizer pockets. Adjusting the padded shoulder strap to fit just right, you sling it back and head down the flight of stairs, grabbing your longboard on the way and head out to greet this promising day ahead.

The City Bag Perfected

Great article on the perfect city bag mixed with the Moleskine sensibility:

It wasn't long ago that our containers were more open-ended, made to hold anything, rather than specific things. A bag was a bag, rather than a laptop bag. A case for a cellphone held most phones, not just the current generation's. The new line of city-friendly bags introduced in Milan earlier this week by Moleskine—a company best known for its impeccably simple notebooks—is a return to that open-endedness of yesteryear, meeting the needs of the technology-laden professional without writing off mankind's centuries-old relationship with paper.

Best Messenger bags for Men: Carga Bags

Now is the time where men are able to flaunt their stylish leather messenger bags instead of the old rucksack backpack we used. It may just well be plain vanity that this type of mindset has now influenced men. However, it is rewarding to see someone rushing for the closing train door with a very smart looking bag strapped over one's shoulder while sporting the best shirt for the office. The first thing that everyone will notice is your bag and how you've come to select it, or where you've bought it in the first place.

This blog will take into account the best bags in the market. The bags being expensive is the first reaction that you'll definitely have, but it pays off to get feedback from anyone who will see your Man bag. Believe me, as I have experienced it.

To Start off, there's Carga Bags

The Carga 02L Messenger bag. I currently own this which I bought two years ago, and until now I've been constantly getting good feedback from anyone who sees it. With its deep dark brown vegetable dyed leather, it comes with it's own unique serial number. One complaint though is it gets heavy once you put more things in it.

The aluminum rivets does add to the weight of the bag as well as the internal leather pocket and the detachable Iphone leather case which apparently has another aluminum hook to attach to the bag. But once you remove the attachment, the weight is taken off.

I'd have to say that this is the best looking bag I've acquired. But like any pair of shoes, you must have another set, or else it gets spoiled fast!
