    Messenger/sketchbook bags, any suggestions?

    So, I'm looking for a new bag. I already have an old, and still good looking TimBuk2 messenger bag that I used for school, but it's too bulky for every day use.

    I'm just looking for a good looking men's bag that can fit a 9"x12" sketchbook or smaller moleskins, some pencils, cellphone, music player, and small essentials. I'm getting tired of giant bulging pockets.

    I've checked the usual spots like YakPak, Timbuk2, Manhattan Portage and have come up with a few possibilities:

    Manhattan Portage's Manhattan bag

    Waterfield SFBag's Muzetto (leather):

    and the Vertigo from the same place:

    On Etsy, the handmade Minus Messenger bag:

    I like the colors green and blue, so a bag like this is cool:

    TomBihn has bags that look good, and are just about the size I needed:

    The muzetto appeals to me for its looks and simplicity, I usually don't like leather, but on this it looks good. The high price is the only thing keeping me back as I prefer the vertical design.

    I just purchased a somewhat cheap "Airborne" style messenger bag, the same kind Jack Bauer carries around on the TV show 24. We'll see how that goes.

    Alternatively, if anyone of you fellow artists make bags, I'm more than willing to consider your designs.

    I have this Samsonite messenger bag that I've had for about 5 years. Still in perfect condition. I highly recommend them. You can find them pretty much anywhere that sells luggage, or at a bestbuy in like the laptops area.
