The problem with the messenger bags is that you sometimes have to choose between a product that is visually attractive and one which is quite practical. This kind of choice is rendered virtually useless by the guys at Rickshaw Bags, which suggest a messenger bag that combines utility with good looks. Each product is made by hand in a San Francisco shop, which is the best guarantee that no compromises are made in terms of quality for the sake of bigger profits.
Instead of buying a messenger bag manufactured in a remote part of the globe, by underpaid labors working in sweatshops to deliver cheap products at an industrial scale, you can buy quality products crafted here. The environmental and social values are the governing principles of this entire business, which is a win-win situation if you want to make a difference and own a practical messenger bag. Durable nylon is being used, because it is both long lasting and easy to recycle, although you’ll find it difficult to give up these bags once they enter your collection.
When you are riding the bike and need a minimalist approach on messenger bags, the Mini version is arguably the best choice. It is spacious enough to accommodate your laptop, and comes fitted with extra pockets for other stuff you carry around, without being too heavy or causing any kind of discomfort. Furthermore, you will have easy access to everything thanks to the sturdy Velcro closure while still being secured due to the cross body design.
