For such a tough, fully featured messenger bag Banjo Brothers have got this in at an exceptionally good price. It comes with an internal padded laptop divider and six pockets – slip pockets, Velcro-secured and zipped – plus slots for pens.
Other features include a removable mobile/cell phone holder on the 50mm wide strap, a keyclip, carrying handle and light tab. We’d have preferred more reflective details on such a dark bag, and it’s water-resistant rather than fully waterproof, but it’s comfortable, secure and tough and the 19-litre capacity is adequate for most occasions.
