CaseCrown Vertical Mobile Messenger Bag

Best Messenger Bag for Just the Essentials

Why people love it
  • Comfortable to carry
  • Excellent quality construction
  • Plenty of pockets for storage

These bags are designed to fit specific tablets; you’ll need to buy the bag you need according to the gadgets you have. If you need to carry a lot of gear, investing in a sleeve and a larger messenger bag is probably a better idea.


This isn't the largest bag, as it's designed to hold a Microsoft Surface Pro, but it's definitely one of the most stylish. The multiple front, back, interior, side, and flap pockets close with a combination of velcro and zipper closures. This is great for guys who live a minimalist life and love it. And, with all the options available, it’s difficult not to fall in love with this messenger bag. This bag is simple in design, yet ever so good looking. It features secure pockets and is made from super durable construction. Unless you need a bigger bag (to fit your laptop or gym clothes), this is certainly a bag to consider.

What’s it made of? Given the price, it shouldn’t surprise you that this is a canvas messenger bag.

Can you close it fully? The flap closes via velcro, but there are also zippers to make sure that everything stays in its place.

What’s the largest laptop or tablet it can hold? This particular model is designed to hold a Microsoft Surface Pro. You can get similar bags designed for other tablets. There is interior padding to keep your tech safe, but you will struggle to put a lot of extra stuff into this bag. Everything feels rather compact.

Can you wash it? This is another of those wipe-with-a-damp-cloth bags. If you’re worried about keeping this messenger bag clean, pick one of the darker colors.

Will it break the bank? Wow! Just $30? It’s a good price for a great-quality bag. We love, love, love it. You may pay a little more for bags that fit other tablets, but not that much.

What Reviewers Say: Reviewers with Surface Pro tablets (for which this bag was designed) absolutely rave about this product. And, it's not difficult to understand why.

  • I was on a long search for bag to hold my surface pro securely. I tried several and returned many but found this bag fit the surface pro and its accessories really well. I have a type cover, touch mouse, displayport-to-vga adapter, and power supply. They all fit with extra room for my calculator, pens, eye glasses + cover, wallet, keys, name tag, and cellphone.
  • This is a great sturdy bag that keeps my tablet and peripherals protected and has lots of extra space.
  • Great messenger bag for my Surface Pro! Tons of pockets for everything else! I also use it for my iPad and sometimes my netbook. I've been using this bag for 4-5 months now and haven't had any issues or found any visible wear and tear. This bag looks great and an awesome choice for your minimalistic lifestyle.
