Eco-Friendly Canvas Messenger Bag

Best Messenger Bag for Guys That Care about the Environment

Why people love it
  • Loads of room and plenty o’ pockets
  • Sturdy and easy to use
  • Great quality

Made from all-natural cotton canvas in such a way as to leave the smallest possible carbon footprint, this laptop messenger bag has a padded compartment for your laptop. And it’s a lot more than eco-friendly; it’s big enough to get you through the busiest days.

There are some complaints about the placement of the carry handle; it just doesn’t balance nicely. And, there aren’t a lot of small pockets which means some of your gear may get jumbled.  


In addition to the small carbon footprint attached to this messenger bag, you also get a reasonable price tag. This is one of the larger messenger bags on the market and can fit laptops as large as 17”. That’s impressive on its own, but you’ll still fit more into your bag. But, don’t be tempted to overload it too often or it will create too much strain on the stitching. Still, if you have a lot to carry, you should definitely check out this bag.

What’s it made of? The cotton canvas is produced in such a way as to cause as little environmental stress as possible. Some guys may say, “It’s just a bag!” Others think it’s a big deal.

Can you close it fully? Nope. This is a classical-styled messenger bag, so the flap keeps everything inside as long as it’s upright or flat on its back. The latches are sturdy and you shouldn’t expect your bag to simply fly open. However, that doesn’t mean you’ll have a difficult time getting this awesome bag open.

What’s the largest laptop or tablet it can hold? As long as your computer is smaller than 17” (yes, 17”), you can fit it in this messenger bag. Some guys report getting their laptop as well as a few college textbooks inside. That says something. And, there are lots of pockets and sections so you can keep items separate. That said, you may be interested to know that there aren’t many smaller pockets for wires, a cordless mous, an extra phone, or whatever else you may lug about during the day.

Can you wash it? You could potentially stick this in the washing machine on a cold, gentle cycle. Now, you will do that at your own risk, because it’s probably not recommended. But, there’s nothing in the construction that really prohibits it.

Will it break the bank? The MSRP is the price you’ll pay… and it won’t be a lot. Expect to fork over less than $35. Isn’t that amazing?
