£130 Manufacturer Booq, booqbags.com
1 With Booq bags you always get what you pay for, and this roomy messenger bag is no exception to the rule. You get a lot of bag for your money. It’s big enough to hold a 15-inch notebook, and is made from ballistic nylon complete with a water-repellent coating. Each bag has a unique Terralinq serial number to help recover it if it’s lost, and a cross strap keeps it comfortable on your back. It’s well built too, and should last for years. But despite its quality and style, you can get equally capable messenger bags for half the price. Ian Osborne
A quality messenger bag, that's big on bucks as well as room, but take note that there are cheaper alternatives out there.
