It seems lately that a shoulder bag has been classified as a messenger bag. What the difference?
I thought that a messenger bag was one that was strapped across the back sling style so as to make it easier to carry if one was, for example, on a bike. I find though that most shoulder bags that are called messenger bags are not designed for that. They would shift too much if you tried. So is a shoulder bag the same as a messenger bag?
Truth be told I was looking for a messenger bag (not a shoulder bag) and had a lot of trouble finding one that would fit my needs (which include riding a bike with it).
