Insomniac Sale Picks: Messenger Bags

*In this late-night feature – which will run Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Shelley requested a few picks for messenger bags, so here we go:

Kenneth Cole Messenger Bag – was $260, now $93.74

This bag is fairly small – 12″ x 12″ x 3″ – but very sleek and features two front pockets and one back pocket in addition to the main compartment. The leather is soft, so if you prefer a more structured messenger, this won’t be your best bet. But for traveling light, it’s ideal. Comes in this tan, chocolate brown, and black.

8th line Canvas Laptop Messenger – was $60, now $37.99

Can you tell I’m a fan of minimalist messengers? This budget-friendly, vegan-friendly option doubles as a laptop case which appeals to me since larger messengers can get floppy. But the laptop sleeve is removable. The strap is padded, which is helpful if you’re hauling heavy. It’s 4″ x 17″ x 12.5″ and comes in this classic black, brown, and army green.

Nuo Canvas Messenger Bag – was $59.99, now $56.99

If you go in for a slightly more rugged look, this big bag is a fun choice. At 17″ x 11.5″ x 4″ it should hold all of your goodies and then some, including most laptops up to 17″. (Bag includes a padded laptop sleeve.) This is a canvas bag but has some leather trim, so not totally vegan.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for messenger bags:

  1. Diaz Bags – I’ve mentioned this vendor before, but must do so again. I cannot TELL you how many compliments I get on my own laptop case, and I’m loving the line’s new minimalist messengers.
  2. Manhattan Portage – I just never got into Timbuk2 bags, but Manhattan Portage will hold a place in my heart forever. They’re just so sleek and pared-down. This classic style is a fave.
  3. eBags.com – A great resource for bags of all kinds, including messengers.

    Thanks so much for this posting. I wouldn’t have found Diaz Bags on my own.
