    Messenger Bag suggestions? >$75



    Hey all, I've been looking for a new messenger bag for a few weeks now, but I haven't been able to find one that I like within my price range. I really like the looks of the banana republic messenger bag

    http://bananarepublic.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=59887&vid=1&pid=770595&scid=7705950 02


    but at $125 it's too expensive and all their discount codes seem to exclude men's bags.


    I've also looked through similar posts on the topic and still can't find one I like. Any suggestions?

    Hey Nick - not sure if you're interested, but I'm looking to sell my messenger. It's in very, very good shape. Retailed at $100+ tax. Asking $60. I'm in the NYC area.

      Some additional info: I'm a college student so I'd like something appropriate for both school and work

          This bag was recommended in a Dappered post & I highly recommend it. No leather (leather bad!), quality construction, lots of space, black, & it comes with a yellow ruler.

              @the new transported man, that one seems really nice, especially at that price! Thanks for the suggestion


              I saw this http://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/a...0353/30353.jsp

              got great praise on a few dappered articles, but its a bit more than I want to spend and appears to be out of stock

              However this http://www.jcrew.com/mens_factory_ca...~~~~/54056.jsp seems identical besides the color (and the price!). Am i missing a key difference here?

                Edit: actually I read the comments on the jcrew bags and have seen a lot of people complaining about the quality

                  Maybe check out something from the kenneth cole reaction line. Not the best leather but that's what you get at that price point. I got one at christmas and carry it for work and it's just now starting to look nice and broken in.

                  Dress for style, live for results.

                    @ [email protected] - FWIW, I have the JCrew Factory bag you mentioned above, and I love it! I haven't had any issues with the quality and I really like the way it looks. For <$50, I think it's a nice deal.

                      @osiriuso how long ago did you get it? And did you pick it up while there was a discount code out? It's at $54.50 right now, and ends up near $70 with shipping & tax. I still think it looks really nice for $70, I was just concerned about the things I read, thanks for the input.

                        I got it in October of last year. I use it as my daily work bag.. so far, so good!


                        It was originally $64.50 and I got it during a 30% off / FS sale.. so it worked out to be a smidgen under $50 after taxes.

                            I have the mentioned Jcrew bag. I was worried about the quality as well due to the comments, but mine's been able to stand up to my abuse pretty well.
