Belkin Active Pro Messenger
In Bag News, Belkin is getting back into bags. This is good news, because my ten year old Belkin bag is holding strong but is a bit scuffy around the edges. So as of today I’m using the new Active Pro Messenger Bag, and it’s dreamy. While I’ve only had it one day it looks like it’ll easily last a decade -- proper quality materials and stitching abounds. It will hold my 15-inch laptop no worries and has padding and reinforcement everywhere, plus loads of little compartments for my bits. The top cool feature is what appears at first glance to be a plain old black stripe down the side, but is in actual fact a glow strip that lights up like a blazing star at night. WANTED: A black stripe that glows white! That’s crazy bag science right there.
NOT WANTED: Hipsters only favour backpacks, so if you’re a hipster this ain’t your bag.
