I have seriously used this bag to lug my laptop + DSLR all over the world. Switzerland. Thailand. You name it. After three years of near-daily abuse, it doesn't look shoddy, it just looks like a used, three year old bag (see specimen in the above, left).
But I'm not going to say no to a lovely souped up version of my original Messenger No. 1.
The Pittsburgh-based moop team did some considerable upgrades to the bag since I received its first generation for the winter holidays in 2010. Fully lined. Stress point seams reinforced. Extra layers of canvas at the stressed out corners.
Something tells me it's going to be at least another good, long three (?six?) years before I need another upgrade.
