I’ve been struggling with my messenger bag when riding for months now and have been considering either dumping it or actually getting something bigger so that it would stay put on my shoulder. I don’t need that much space — just room for a first aid kit, snack, tool, and some survival bits to satify my paranoid side. Transient bags make bags to fit the needs of rider who wants to carry the essentials and not much more.
Their large hip bag pictured above features elastic pen holders, internal D-ring and a velcro pocket for some extra organization. The bag is made with 1000 denier Cordura which should allow it to stand up to the rigors of an urban commute.
All of their bags are handmade in house; it’s great to support a small local bag maker.
