Messenger bags originally got their name because they were primarily worn by bicycle messengers. This bag is typically made from a variety of fabrics with a strap that runs over the wearer's chest and has the bag itself resting on the person's lower back. Messenger bags are convenient because they allow large and bulky items to be carried easily and also allow quick access to the stored items.
Messenger bags come in a variety of materials including canvas, leather, nylon and more. Depending on the material of the bag color choices and pattern vary from solid colors to designer patterns. Typically messenger bags have a large centered opening with several inside and outside pockets to store your belongings while carrying around. However, some messenger bags are specifically designed with features to carry laptops and other electronics.
