This Leaper Messenger Shoulder Backpack is a great pick for backpack travel since it stands out a lot from most of the other travel bags due to its compact size. Its form factor is quite different from that of the Gearonic Vintage Canvas Messenger Bag, but its durable canvas makes it great for all-weather adventures since it’ll keep dust away from all its contents. Instead of getting it in the more common color black, we chose to go for army green and were quite impressed. The washed canvas body bag sports an easily adjustable shoulder strap/bag sling that makes it work for both kids and adults, and its material soft feels pretty good to the touch. This messenger sling bag is made in the United States, and is one of the best selling Leaper messenger bags you can get on Amazon or other online platforms with free shipping.

At 9.4 x 12.4 x 3.4 inches, (lhw) this canvas messenger bag comes in a great size that is neither too big nor too small, and has a shoulder strap that won’t bother you too much when adjusting. You can get it in black red green blue or a variety of more descriptive colors to fit your style – note that you won’t get that much choice with the Timbuk2 Classic Messenger Bag. It also has a good number of pockets for you to stash your stuff in, so you’ll rarely be in shortage of space. One of the first things you’ll notice about the shoulder bag is the 1 zipper pocket that’s on it’s top flap. Flip it open and you’ll find another zipper pocket that’s next to an open pocket, and a main compartment that also has one inner zipper pocket, one inner laptop pocket and 2 more smaller pockets. The cross body bag has close to 8 pockets in a nutshell, is made out of good quality canvas material and is one of the best selections you could make for a travel rucksack. If you’re a frequent commuter, there are more options too for a commuter backpack alongside the Leaper to carry all your work materials.


If you like being able to reach back and slide things into your bag through its side pockets, you may be disappointed with this messenger bag canvas since it has only one, and the Newhey Messenger bag as well since it has none. Despite this, the travel rucksack sling bag is still a great buy for its price, and if you get it in the color black, it’ll probably look great with all your outfits. Of course this is not to say that any other color like the color army green will be a lot better than window color black. You can get the bag canvas shoulder backpack in whatever color you’re comfortable in.
