It’s hard to keep track of all the great small specialty shops producing quality gear these days (thats why you might turn to sites like this). R.e.load messenger bags have a near cult like following in Japan and have some of the most unique set of bags available for those of us looking for gear that can handle the rigors of our mobile lifestyle. My favourite is the civilian messenger. Add a Philly Laptop Sleeve and you can take your laptop in safety. The Civilian is 13″H x 18″W x 7″D and the base material is durable cordura. While the stock bags look great what really sets these bags apart is the extensive customisation that they will do for you – colours and custom stitched designs (on the flap) included. If customising is too much for you they have a large gallery of custom stock designs that you can purchase. Prices start at $100US for the Civilian and go up up up.
