  4. Messenger bags are not recommended for bike use. But if you just needed one when you are walking, checkout Crumpler: http://www.crumpler.com/au/. They never go on sale, so everyone (in Australia) pays the same price.

    The only discount available (that I am aware of) is Co-op membership that gives you 8% off on everything they sell which happens to include Crumpler bags.

  5. I use one of the military type canvas bags, great for just chucking stuff in that you can't normally carry on the bike and when not in use folds down to fit in my tail if need be.

  9. If you have an RJays pack rack bag the sides and back zip off and they come with the straps to sling it over your shoulder,

  10. Ha ha. Try an army disposal store. Do they even still have disposal stores ??? Use to get the canvas ones there.

  11. that is attractive no doubt, and probably a very a practical choice.
    ...but not very manly now is it, no not really no.

    i think Luigi is winning so far, blocka is a close second, but those canvas ones just scream bogan/lowbrow.

  13. Aw, go on! Can't you see the smile(s) sliding off the faces as you reached into the attractive little number and extracted the contents? Wouldn't that make it all worth while? Jackie Chan would love it!

  14. try deus.
    i got a ripcurl bag from dfo a last year, quite cheap and works well enough for my pushie, most surf brands would make some sort of "street" type thing that might suit.

  17. Looks very much like a laptop bag. I've bought something similar from an op-shop for $5 that does the trick.
