Incase Messenger Bag- 10.07.08
Incase Nylon Messenger Bag may be THE perfect messenger bag, their designers have figured out every tiny detail! I’ve gone through so many messenger bags (from Chrome, Timbuk2, Ordning & Reda, Tumi, a leather old J.Crew, Jack Spade, and more…) ~ but i’m totally impressed with how sleek, lightweight, and detailed this new Incase Nylon Messenger Bag is. As a 5’4” girl, it actually holds my 15” mcp and a lot of other stuff without making me look like a turtle (which is the case with my huge chrome one!) ~ the shoulder strap is sooo nicely cushioned, and brilliant detail to have the padded handle on the bag double as a key ring (good spare key stash?) ~ lots of pockets of varying depths and openings all around ~ and the biggest mystery to me when i first read about this… “plush faux fur” ~ turns out its a velvety soft lush black material to keep your iphone and laptop from being scratched! Nice that the stabilizer strap is completely detachable as well, and its a nice touch to have the large velcro pocket on the front, and that the clips on the main flap are sewn flat (not sure why that matters, but just a detail i really liked - aesthetically sleeker?). Anyhow, enough rambling from me, i took a bunch of pictures of the details for you to get a feel for it yourself on the next page!
It’s lined with their signature topographic pattern of course!
Here are those flat clips i mentioned earlier ~ and nice subtle logos…
“plush faux fur” ~ not nearly as creepy or frightening as it first sounded!
SO padded! Your back will thank you!
Here’s that secret key stash ~ i guess the handle could double as a valet key…
Quick release ~ big and plastic, and the other end is still securely locked down so your bag doesn’t go flying if someone releases and grabs it
Inside that front velcroed pouch ~ there is a detatchable keyring as well as a main divider, and two pockets - one lined with “plush faux fur” perfectly suited to your iPhone
Inside the main compartment there are two zips, one velcro, one open, and pen pockets
sorry the lighting got a bit weird while i was shooting these quickly ~ sunset happens so fast now! Just wanted to make sure i got this up to share before i headed up to SF tomorrow!
