The Best Messenger Bags in 2024

My days of wearing a backpack are over. It all started last winter. I decided to invest in an oversized PANGIA puffer coat, which made it impossible to fit both arm straps over my enormous shoulders. My fashion sense has changed in the last couple of months. I now favour relaxed and oversized clothing over a slim or regular silhouette. So structured overcoats are a thing of the past. This means my backpack fits in my old wardrobe and no longer has a place in my current style. A sad day indeed.

Now that I am on the hunt for a new messenger bag, it still needs to tick the functionality box for my day job, which requires me to commute to Central London at least twice a week. While I loved the functionality of my backpack, I wanted to maintain practicality when choosing my new commuter bag. This led me to consider the requirements for my latest work bag: malleability, space, and style. 

Malleable enough to curve around my body.

I prefer to avoid bags that are too structured, as this inhibits my outfit. The bag needs to be soft yet durable to mould around my body.

Large enough to house my essentials

The number of things I need to carry increases every day. As standard, the bag needs space for a laptop, my overnight oats, and my lunch. 

Stylish enough yet timeless

It needs to be stylish—a bag that I love the look of and fits with my new style aesthetic. The bag needs a distinctive yet timeless design that can stay in my wardrobe for years and still be worn.

My problem was that I couldn’t find a good blog or Google product list that curated these bags to my needs, so here is my list of the best messenger bags 2024
