Our Favourite Messenger Bags for College

The best bags for college have a unique way of combining form and function, style and substance. Given their tremendous versatility, it should perhaps come as no surprise that messenger bags for college are a popular alternative to backpacks and totes. Designed to accommodate books, computers, and a range of electronic accessories with ease, messenger bags can be the perfect addition to your school routine. Read on for a quick guide to some of our favourite messenger bags for school (and why we love them).

Expert Design, Inside and Out

One of our favourite aspects of messenger bags for college is that they combine two features really well: looking great on the outside while keeping items secure and organised on the inside. This combination of factors shines through in our messenger bags for school.

  • CityGear Collection

    Targus CityGear Laptop Messenger Bag

    Transitioning between environments is a necessity of messenger bags for college, and CityGear bags allow you to do so with exceptional ease. Crafted from lightweight yet durable materials, these bags feature convertible straps and subtle padding to accommodate shoulder, hand, and cross-bodying carrying at school and on the go.

  • Newport Collection

    At the core of the Newport Collection is top-tier performance hidden beneath a sophisticated exterior. Extensive testing and versatile design make these ideal bags not only for school, but also for travel and commuting.

Superior Versatility

Unlike bags that are used more rarely, messenger bags for college are constantly in use. Lugging books, laptops, and tech devices across campus on foot or by transport requires a bag that can stand up to the challenge, and that can be carried and stored easily. That’s why our favourite messenger bags have a lot in common with commuter and travel bags, which help to support ease of use while protecting items in a variety of compact internal compartments.
