I try to avoid posting about off-topic gear and non-tool deals, but this one is too good too keep to myself. This medium-sized Timbuk2 messenger bag dropped in price on Amazon again, to $50. I ordered one as part of a limited time special last month for $55, and I’m loving it so far.
Timbuk2’s normal messenger bags are made overseas, while custom and special edition bags such as this one made in San Francisco, USA. The price of their custom USA-made bags seem to range from $100 to $120.
The bag is very spacious. I have used it to lug a few tools around town, but since it lacks a top handle, I would advise against heavy loads. I mostly use the bag for papers, books, and for short 1-3 day travels.
