View Full Version : Looking for a messenger-style bag

Sep 9, 2013, 09:26 PM
Hi guys, like the title of the thread says I want to buy a bag to carry my computer. I'm not looking for a leather bag. The things I want to carry regularly are my 13 inch macbook air, an eventual ipad mini and my charger. Bonus would be a 2,5'' external hard drive and wireless mouse.

I looked at the Targus City fusion 13 inch which seems to fit my needs. http://www.targus.com/ca/product_details.asp?sku=TBM062CA&promo=&coupon=

I was wondering if some people could get me feedback on this model or other recommandations.

Thank you!

Depends what your commute/desires are. I bike or walk as much as possible, so I went with a more traditional messenger style. I've been using a Timbuk2 freestyle for a couple of years and love mine. They are very comfortable, effectively waterproof, have lots of storage options in a slim profile, and are available in basically endless color options.
The velcro closures can be a little loud (there are two loud velcro pockets to get my ipad out for instance) but I barely even notice any more.

I just bought this one a few days ago: http://www.stash-bags.com/product/11-13-macbook-air-messenger-bag-in-dark-brown-herringbone

Mari is fantastic and accepts to do some light customizations (I asked for a reinforced protection on the back side for the MBA).

You can fit your MBA, some documents and pens, and there are two external pockets for the charger+external hard drive or whatever accessory you might need to transport..
