Bontrager Messenger Bag

Our review

Action-packed and computer-friendly, but not very water-resistant

Bonty’s bag is rammed with useful features. One thing’s for sure – you’re never going to run out of pockets.


The internal sleeve is large enough to take a 17in laptop, and there’s plenty of padding to keep things comfortable. You also get water bottle holders at either end, quite a lot of reflective trim and a rear light loop.


Perhaps showing its Californian roots, the bag doesn’t keep the rain out particularly well, and the shoulder strap isn’t quick-adjust. But you can run the stabilising strap in either direction across your chest or around your waist, which is handy.
