Leather Messenger Bags

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm in a market for a stylish but somewhat practical bag and thought that a leather messenger bag is the way to go.

My budget is under $200.

I've seen some nice looking ones at Banana Republic and the ones that are out of my price range on Bluefly.com

This one on ebay caught my eyes - http://cgi.ebay.com/Handmade-Camel-L...QQcmdZViewItem
It seems to me they are quality bags according to the ravings reviews on the feedbacks.

Any thoughts/suggestions would be appreciated.

Looks very nice. Post some pics if you happen to buy it. I'm considering the duffel bag myself

It looks decent if you don't care about brand names, but for under $200 and leather, your choices are limited. Check out this J Crew bag. You may like it: http://www.jcrew.com/catalog/product...atId=cat240100

Benjamin831, that's a very disturbing avatar!

that jcrew one looks too bulky to me...how about this one?

Those bags in the original post have caught my eye as well.

I don't think I'd be happy paying retail for BR/JC quality leather goods.... just my 2 cents though.

would be great if someone who has that ebay bag can comment on it...i agree retail for those banana or jcrew bags is too much.

i just bought one from wilson's leather. you should check out their website, they currently have a 20% off thing going on, including free shipping with code 2031. nice leather, but not sure where they are made. i bought it from the store in northgate mall, you should give them a looksee if you like the bags online. leather is VERY soft, and will need protecting from the rain with some kind of leather protector sprays.
