Q: So college starts soon, and I'd like a new bag. I really like messenger bags, but most of them are so UN-magnificent. What should this bastard buy for school? By the way, just discovered this site about a week ago, and it's one of my new favorites!
A: John, normally we would recommend something from Mandarina Duck or Knomo, but since you're in college, we'd rather see you spend your money on beer, grass, and condoms. Not necessarily in that order. For a cool messenger bag on a budget that no one else will own (that also holds a laptop), try this XN Vertical Messenger from one of our favorites, Flight 001. Currently 30% off clearance.
