Immediately apparent durability and style; the Columbia Outdoor Essentials Messenger for Women has combined rugged, outdoor durability with an urban flare. Omni-Shield® advanced repellency protects the bag’s contents when the rain begins to pour. You might end up wearing the Outdoor Essentials Messenger on the back of a moped in Central America or maybe just to haul some books across campus, either way this bag holds up and looks good. The internal divider sleeve is ideal for keeping stuff organized, and your cell phone and keys are always right where you left them with the internal stash pocket.

Good school bag
December 31, 2011

My 5 yr old uses this as a school bag. I can't really see an adult using it for a lot as it's a bit small. The best thing about it is it's water resistant. Since we're in Oregon that's essential!

Pros: Great value

Very nice but needs a pad on the shoulder strap
August 30, 2011

I bought this messenger bag for my 10 year-old daughter. She likes the way it looks and it's a good size for her. My only complaint is that it needs one of those sliding pads that some bags have on the strap; the strap digs into her shoulder when the bag is fully loaded.

Better messenger bags out there.
September 10, 2011

This bag is uncomfortable to carry and hard to get in and out of. I think it is a cute messenger bag but, for practicality and everyday use it is not the right bag for me.

Pros: Great value, Cons: Bad design
