The stylish Heritage Collection Anti-Theft messenger bag from Travelon has a large compartment on the inside without being too bulky of a bag.
- Canvas. Imported.
- 3″ high. 11.5″ wide.
- Roomy main compartment with padded pocket for a laptop to 15.6 inch.
- A zippered RFID blocking pocket.
- Zippered organizer compartment with 2 open top wall pockets.
It is comfortable to wear either slung over the shoulder or to carry as an underarm satchel since the shoulder strap can be easily unhooked (but there is no top handle like a traditional briefcase).
I especially liked the front flap that conceals a pocket, but also that the main compartment has a quick-access zipper so you don’t have to fumble around with the flap in a hurry.
A narrow third pocket is ideal to hold coins, keys, passport, or other small items. Most important is that the pocket is RFID-protected meaning that you can store credit cards or other valuable devices like phones that are safe from hackers.
A side pocket holds water bottles or small umbrellas without taking up valuable space inside the bag. The durable cotton, canvas, and suede fabric looks more expensive than it really is and while it is not waterproof, it does not stain easily from being exposed to rain or moisture.
The bag is generously sized on the interior, and it fits easily into all airline carry-on bag sizers. It slides nearly underneath the seat in front of you or on top of a rollaboard bag in the overhead bin.
While the bag is not large enough to stuff a change of clothes inside, it does make a great day bag. It comes in different colors and can hold all sizes of laptops plus a stash of newspapers, magazines, and tablet without being too bulky.
The Travelon logo is quite discreet in the bottom corner. The Heritage Collection Anti-Theft messenger bag from Travelon is both attractive and important for modern travelers concerned about data theft. It retails for $80 on the Travelon website or on Amazon.
