Architects and designers have specific needs that a messenger bag can fill. The bags need to be versatile enough to hold all of the design tools, business documents and electronics, while being durable enough to last on a dirty, dingy construction site. Today we unbag one architect’s messenger bag to see how they utilize it.
Messenger Bag. This is a canvas bag that has taken abuse over many years. Originally a leather bag was used, but it didn’t hold up to the punishment of the job site. This Dickies Messenger Bag doesn’t have a lot of features, but is plenty durable and not expensive.
Laptop.Apple MacBook 13″. Fits easily into the bag along with the plug and mouse. A must have for any designer.
Water Bottle. Metal water bottle connected to bag strap via clip.
Pocket Knife. You never know when you might need it.
