Messenger Bags


Messenger Bags – A Commuter’s Satchel

The Messenger Bag is a bike commuter’s best friend.  If your looking to boost your metabolism, lose weight and become more environmentally conscious, you might try commuting to work by bike.  For those willing enough to do this, you will be glad you did.  Being a bike commuter, even if it’s one day a week, is great for the body and mind.

One of the things every bike commuter will eventually want is a good bag to store their extra cloths, computer or whatever else you need to carry.  Lucky for you there are plenty of what is termed “Messenger Bags” to choose from.

Most Messenger bags come in two styles, a one strap or a backpack.  The advantages of the one strap is easier access to gear without the need to remove the bag.  The backpack advantage is it tends to be a little more comfortable at least from my perspective.

Below is a compiled list of companies who are in the business to cater to the bike commuter/messenger and carry a wide range of Messenger Bags.
