There's something so satisfying about getting back to the basics. When you leave out all the unnecessary extras, you're left with a classic that will last you for ages. That's the vibe we're getting from the Bluelounge Messenger Bag ($139). It's made from recycled PET fabric that's been finished with a water-resistant coating. It's got a large, padded center pocket that'll hold a laptop (up to seventeen inches) as well as a fair number of books or work files. It boasts a few smaller front pockets, too, for keeping your essentials safe. But we're most impressed with the strap. It adjusts to balance the weight of the bag's contents evenly across your back. No matter how much crap you cram in it, you won't be stooping under sore shoulders by the time you reach your destination.
