Messenger Bag

I would like to get a new messenger bag (1) because I am gay like a woman who buys a new purse every few months, and (2) I want to be cool.  The bag needs to house a small-medium sized blogging machine, cell phone, ipod, and a 9 mm Glock (for the commute).  Below are a few links to items I have been looking at:


Should I do leather?



Your suggestions will be noted but likely not followed.  Thanks.

  • If you at all value our friendship you won’t get leather. Not because I’m “against” leather, but because leather bags are so not hip. 🙂

    ………I’d go with the leather ( black ) and a matching ( studded ) collar and don’t forget the pants , boots , jacket , bling-bling ….. the Glock is already a nice touch …….

  • macnn posted a glowing review of waterfield’s mambo combo bag, saying, among other things, it is, “easily the best shoulder bag [the reviewer] has ever used.” All kinds of color, and leather/noleather options. I personally go with crumpler, but then I got mine as a gift. Serious heads in new york go with jack spade. A buddy of mine has a spade, and I can’t front, I dig it. Make sure you click on the “greene street” section if you want to see bags that cost less than three bills — not much less though.

  • I couldn’t get through the day without my Patagonia Critical Mass bag. And the reflector tape makes it easy for cars to see me playing in the middle of the road.

  • So what did you decide?

  • you’d think that I would have decided by now, but the last month has been a doozy. I have time to decide now.
