Messengers Bags- More than just a fashionable choice

Every day we see prima donnas slinging their messenger bags that complete their stylish look. Models flaunting designer’s messenger bags at the catwalk, the classy and elegant leather giving the wearer a vintage look; Vogue magazine showcasing leather messenger bags as the latest fashion – all of this just goes on to prove that it is a powerful fashion accessory, a must-have in every fashion conscious person’s wardrobe, both men and women.

But it’s far more than just a fashion accessory; the bag’s utility is just as much a reason for choosing it as the aesthetic appeal. Let’s see what a messenger bag is really all about.

Defining Messenger Bag:

Long before the messenger bag was being flaunted by the inhabitants of the fashion world, it could be seen slung on the arms of postmen. Yes, you read that right. Letters were stored in these bags for delivery, and one might even spot postmen toting this bag in many South Asian countries to this day.

Many people refer to the messenger bag as a courier bag, typically made out of a thick material that protects ones belongings from water and all kinds of damage. It is worn across the chest over one shoulder so it can securely hang on the wearer’s side while making it very convenient to take out things without the need to take the bag off the shoulder.

Over the years, the bag had undergone essential changes with new designs, making it a common fashion accessory. Now, wearing a messenger bag makes one look classy, sophisticated, and a real hard worker, all at the same time.

Messenger bag for men:

Most men buy a messenger bag for its practicality rather than for making a fashion statement. Usually, men use the kind of a messenger bag that comes handy to them while working. The type of messenger bag they use depends upon what they are using it for. Using it as a laptop bag is getting increasingly common today. The presence of adequate zippers, fasteners, clasps, and locks also needs to be considered for protection of one’s valuables.

 
The Right Way To Wear The Right Way To Wear

 

For men, wearing the bag right is critical. That’s what means the difference between coming off as stylishly masculine or feminine. Check out Will Smith giving the perfect lesson on wearing the bag right on the movie poster of ‘ I am Legend’. Follow his style and you are good to go.

In a way, a messenger bag is our very own personalized bag. It comes in big sizes, small sizes, horizontal dimensions, vertical dimensions, variety of colors, locks, buckles, straps, leather, handmade, pockets, compartments, top opening, flap – you name it. That’s what makes it the perfect bag to suit anyone’s preferences and needs. Here are 4 groups of people among which the bag is most popular today.

  1. Cyclists:

Messenger bags are widely used by cyclists.  I know what most of you are thinking: “Umm... don’t they use a backpack?” Yes they do often use a backpack, and they usually end up regretting it. Two reasons. First, when you have a backpack with you, you are likely to stock up more, the weight subsequently increasing the center of gravity, leading to a fall. Second, you always have to deal with the hassle of loading and unloading the bag – something you don’t have to bother with when using a messenger bag..

  1. Students:

These bags are very common among students, the perfect choice for keeping books, registers, diaries and all the student life paraphernalia and conveniently taking things out as need be. And it also gives them the opportunity to be stylish.

  1. Professionals:

Those of us who wake up every morning, pour some coffee down our throats, and head to work in hopes of someday living the American dream. A messenger bag comes in very handy to carry all those files and documents around.

  1. Mothers:

Mothers to little toddlers have lots to carry- their own things and the gear of their little ones. Why not look stylish while doing that though? That’s where a messenger bag comes in.
