Or rather, how many bottles of liquor can one safely hold in an average sized messenger bag while traveling at 13mph on a bike?

just attach one of those folding baskets to your bike. grocery bags fit into the baskets perfectly

Much easier than having a gallon of milk in your expedition size backpack.

Also, the Timbuk2 messenger bag I have in medium holds a lot of stuff, and they have larger sizes.

Messenger bags are so ghey.

I must agree with Fran here.

Ortlieb. Worked perfectly for me for two bike-messengering years. Machine washable.

Ideally I'd drag a few Goyard steamer trunks behind me but that's slightly impractical.

You're a dumbass. I have a Chrome bag and I think it is awesome. I've always had good luck with your standard fair from some place like REI or something. Get yourself a large internal frame or daypack-- whatever is the best price.

Yes, but so are most other backpacks.

I see you more with a LeSportsac. It would be oh-so-darling.

With matching fanny pack.

Timbuk2 Lex Large or X Large. Both of them have serious hauling portage and are are built tough. I have the large Lex backpack. Good for an urban environment where a mountain pack is impractical or just too big.

If you have a week's worth of groceries and you're more a mile's walk from the store. Carrying home the stuff in both of your hands isn't really an appealing proposition. You may need to ferry more stuff than you think and extra cubic space always helps!
