What We Don't Like
Are you in the market for a new bag? Maybe you’re looking for a gift for someone else? Messenger bags continue to be an increasingly popular trend due to their practicality, convenience, and style.
A messenger bag is called as such as it was first designed for messengers and mail workers who needed easy access to the contents of their bag to pick up and deliver letters. Nowadays, most bag designers have at least one (if not more) messenger style bag within their range to respond to the demand.
What is better is that the choices offered are fantastic, so you’re bound to find one that suits your needs.
That said, we looked at one such bag made by Plambag to see what it offers and if it could potentially be the perfect bag for you.
Plambag Canvas Messenger Bag Review
Plambag aims to design bags that combine the functionality of a bag needed for business with the casual nature of one used for weekends and casual outings. Their messenger bag is retro, durable, and comfortable.
Who Is This Product For?
The canvas messenger bag from Plambag has a very simple design with no gender-defining characteristics, so it is suitable for both men and women. This product is ideal for someone who is in the market for a bag that fits most occasions as it is stylish enough to take to the office, but also is easily “dressed down” on the weekend.
Upon purchase, you'll get one bag with a strap that has a dimension of 8.7(L) x 4.7(W) x 10.6(H) inches and weight of approximately 1.3 pounds.
Overview of Features
The material used to make this bag is a high quality, eco-friendly canvas which offers fantastic durability. The stitching and zips are also long-lasting so with proper care, this bag should last you for years to come. With three colors to choose from (black, grey and coffee), that all have subtle design differences, you can choose a style that will suit your wardrobe best.
We also love the fact that this bag comes with many pockets, so you can keep your belongings in different compartments. This makes everything easy to find and better protected than if it was all in one pocket.
Two main zipper compartments can hold your daily-use items that don’t get damaged easily, while another main pocket is built specifically to keep your iPad or Kindle but can also be used for other things such as a small book or notepad.
Additionally, two, front, zippered pockets are available for quicker access to your phone and cash, and a zippered back pocket is designed for your to-do or shopping list or anything else you might need to carry.
One of the front pockets also has six handy card slots which eliminate the need for an extra purse or wallet and the convenient key ring holder included means you’ll never be rooting around for your keys at the bottom of your bag again.
Lastly, the adjustable strap means you can wear the bag at a length that suits you and can be altered easily depending on whether you are wearing it on your shoulder or over your body.
How to Get the Most Out of It
This bag should last you a very long time if cared for properly. That said, the manufacturer suggests washing it with clean water at ordinary room temperature since hot water and alkaline detergents may damage or cause extra wear to the fabric.
You should also wash it separately from other items to make sure that colors don’t run from other items, and when drying, hang it up in a well-ventilated area but not in direct sunlight.
We compared the Plambag bag to another similar product by Egoelife. This is also a unisex messenger bag made out of high-quality canvas that has great attention to final details such as stitching and strap connections. It comes in black or coffee colors and has a detachable and adjustable strap.
However, this bag is slightly larger, allowing you to carry around something as big as a small laptop. Measuring around 13.5(L) x 3.1(W) x 10.8(H), it can easily accommodate a 13- or 14-inch laptop in one of its large interior pockets.

Unless you specifically need to carry a laptop around with you, then we prefer the Plambag Messenger Bag. While it may lack the length to carry a small laptop, it is certainly big enough for most people’s needs for everyday items.
There are so many pockets, and a lot of them have zippers on them, which means you don’t have to carry an extra purse or wallet around with you and can feel safe that these precious items will not fall out of your bag.
The extra details such a pen pocket and a key ring holder make us feel that they have put a lot of thought into what people want and need in a bag for everyday life while staying organized and in control of where everything is for easy access.
