    I'm looking for a messenger bag. Basically I'm looking for a black one that's under $150. I've read through the other threads on this forum regarding messenger bags, but I was wondering if you guys had any suitable suggestions that matched what I'm looking for. What do you guys think about this Kenneth Cole one:

    Thanks!

    I know it's $50 over budget, but Bluefly has a Lambertson Truex Kyoto messenger bag for $207, normally $345. I highly recommend them in general. I have this bag and it's very well made, as all LT stuff. They also have this in Khaki and Navy. It's a durable canvas with leather trim and flap. It has a few pockets inside of canvas for pens or calculator etc and a cell phone holder (I use for a laptop mouse). http://bluefly.com/pages/products/de...atchallpartial

    I really like the Jack Spade line. They are a bit more casual though.

    Ubiquitous but probably the most consistently well-designed messenger bags.

    I'd look at your local milsurp store first though and maybe save a hundred bucks.
