I was living on the streets and only had my old Sears Free Spirit 10 speed bike and I needed a decent size bag to carry my cloths, and other things I needed, insect repellent, soap, flash like and extra batteries, food tire repair tools and patch kit. My Eastsport Black Messenger Bag has only one snap on the cover flap where as this bag shows it has two cover flap snap buckles. Believe it or not I am still using the same bag I bought in at Wal*Mart Sep of 2006 and it's been mounted on the handlebars of my eZip Trailz electric bike since 2008 and I carry air pump, tools, extra tube, extra drive chain, patch a first aid kits and I still have room to carry a dozen eggs, 10 packes of hot dogs, 4 cans of tuna fish and 2 small bags of dried beans and black eyed pies. and the zippers still work and the snap hold all that weight even when hitting some pretty bad bumps. It's been the best bag I have ever used and I have gone through a few of the back packs that cant carry near as much stuff as the ES Messenger bag I have. I will order another to keep as a back up because as time goes by the quality of things get worse and nothing ever stays the same for long. I included a pic of the bag I have mounted on my bike so everybody can see about how big the ES Messeger bag i got in 2006.
