* The best canvas messenger bags for men
* Rugged look, durable construction and affordable prices
* Great for commuting, traveling or school
Military style has been having a moment recently with cargo pants, combat boots, camo and other service-ready colors. But there’s another military-inspired classic that we think everyone should consider: canvas messenger bags.
We’re big fans of canvas messenger bags because they’re stylish and durable but still highly affordable (especially compared to leather bags). The fabric provides a look that’s very stylistically versatile, so you can rock a canvas messenger bag during a city commute or at a rural music festival and look great.
The only problem with buying a canvas messenger bag is all the options. There are hundreds of bags at low prices, but not all of them are well-built and worth buying. To help narrow down your search, we rounded up four of the best, most highly-rated canvas messenger bags that you can buy on Amazon right now. Check them out below.
1. Sweetbriar Classic Messenger Bag
Finding a decent everyday bag for under $50 is a good deal. Finding one for under $25 is pretty great. This rugged canvas messenger bag from Sweetbriar clocks in at just $23, but boasts a quality construction that has garnered it great reviews from over 1,000 users.
2. Leaper Messenger Sling Bag
If you’re planning on using your bag for serious activities like running, or you prefer a bag with a more secure fit, we suggest this sling messenger bag. It showcases a retro canvas look with leather accents and a sturdy, comfortable sling fit. It’s also very reasonably priced at $32, and comes in a variety of rugged colors.
3. Sweetbriar Laptop Messenger Bag
This canvas messenger bag (also from Sweetbriar) features a slightly larger size and a convenient padded laptop compartment. We’re also big fans of the throwback style that utilizes a few subtle leather accents and buckles to nail the look.
4. Berchirly Canvas Messenger Bag
Berchirly’s canvas messenger bag has the largest size and the highest quality build on our list. It’s ideal if you travel with a lot of books or a large laptop, with users lauding the space, organization and quality of the bag.
