I *NEED* a decent messenger bag! (REP!) watch

    Since September (last year) I've had two bags, one from River Island and another from Debenhams and both have ended up tearing at the straps. :mad:

    And tbh, I'm now getting sick of clutching all my folders, books and need a decent bag. :yep:

    I'm hoping someone can help me find a decent bag? It doesn't have/need to be trendy etc, but it needs to be fairly spacious; it needs to hold a couple of folders, a couple of books, a phone (so side pockets would be great) and possibly space for a laptop? :cool:

    Could someone help... please? :cry:

    This is one I'd personally go for. Idk what your taste is tbh. Go wild. Grindstore is great for bags if you're into music.

    EDIT: Out of stock, just realised :emo:

    Eastpak do messenger bags. They do the normal ones, and they do one which has a zipper along the bottom I think so it expands.
    This link is to the expandable one. You can get it in lots of colours although I think they are mostly plain:

    Go for an Eastpak messenger bag. Very durable bags, come with 30 year warranties - definitely worth a look.

    Why not get a backpack? They're usually stronger and better for carrying loads of stuff. But if they're not you're style then cool, go with the other suggestions.

    I like them ones too! The navy one is hot. Shame that I already have a messenger bag and don't use it much so can't justify buying another one

    I personally use one of these; spacious enough to fit everything; sturdy as hell ( mine came with a lifetime guarantee anyway), comfortable to wear which is a bonus and its not bad looking i think. Has side pockets and laptop capabilities just like you wanted :P
