Consider the messenger bag.
Perfect for the cycling commute, but unfortunately married to the casquetted aesthetic of the bike messenger. Or over-logo'd web conference swag.
No longer. Introducing SF's Intrepid Bag Company and their Journeyman Messenger.
Crowdfunded back in October and, wonder of wonders, now shipping, the Journeyman marries the handsome charms of a soft-sided briefcase with the go-anywhere function of a messenger.
The result: you no longer need to carry that tech conference bag (the hobo bindle of the webby set).
Crafted from latigo saddle leather (known for its supple finish) and lined with a muted gray herringbone, it's exceedingly easy on the eyes.
And a floating laptop/tablet sling — the best of Intrepid's little touches — makes the Journeyman easy on the back as well, allowing it to conform to your frame while keeping all your gear where it belongs.
Order direct from Intrepid while their initial supply lasts.
Because the bag you wear should send a message, not just deliver it.
