Here’s a deep confession, I have a bag addiction. Come look in my closest and there are at least 4 messenger bags, 4 bicycle specific back packs, hydration bags and then panniers are end less. Constantly the search is on to find the most stylish, yet functional, bag possible.
Here’s my top picks so far :
The brand is known by most outdoor enthusiasts. The company has been around for a long time and catered originally towards the messenger bag. Today Timbuk2 makes dozens of styles that are all available in various colors and fabric types. Even making a tech line for your laptop carrying wifi hunters.
SealLine Urban Backpack - Small
When waterproof is your goal, SealLine has been a huge player in dry bags for years and now they bring that knowledge to backpacks or messenger bags. Personally, my favorite is the small Urban Backpack that is air tight to keep all electronics or clothing fully try.
Styling and profiling. Awesome panniers that attach to your rear rack system. Born and bread in Europe which means not only are they stylish but they have function.
This is my cherished laptop bag used for travel, work and heading to Starbucks where you must look the part. This keeps my Apple Macbook Pro safe, utilizing a mounting pannier hanger I can snap the bag on my rear rack or strap it to my back with the messenger straps. There is even a pull out storm cover to wrap around the bag to keep everything dry in downpour.
