Hey, I'm deciding between the following as an inexpensive alternative to my leather messenger. It would be mainly for going to my post-bac classes when I don't have to go straight from work. I might use it for work every once and again (business casual attire), as a lighter alternative. Please let me know which you prefer. Thanks.

i like the first one on the left, the right seems overdesigned with that x strap, which could get lame pretty fast.

One on the left is actually pretty nice for a casual bag. Where to buy?

EDIT: Nm, just noticed the watermark.

They're both on Amazon and various army navy websites for around $30. I agree with you both, I'm more partial to the left one as well. Thanks for the input.

Does the "x-strap" serve any purpose? Otherwise I agree the left is better looking.

I believe it's just for decoration

Rough. Maybe some other site will have better rates. Try search B-15 messenger bag. Hopefully you'll have some luck.
