This thread inspird me to pick up this yesterday:

along with this:

The accessory pouch is perfect for an item that you night need immediate access to that is of the approximate dimensions 1.265"x.860"x4.5". It attaches to the strap.

If you need the right side of your body free then you might special order the left handed version of the bag. I will make the standard version of the bag work for me.

It all works for me, however I don't carry a weapon in the bag. It has a "Napolean" pocket that would serve this purpose for a smaller firearm if you so choose.

They make an "XS" size, but it would've been too small for my needs (growing family, carrying baby diapers).

This bag does not catch a second glance in my town, whereas I always look sideways at the max-ped man-purse guys. Those bags just scream "I'm strapped" to me.

I saw this the other day, looks right up your alley. Too bad about the price though.

Damn, I'm not a messenger bag kind of guy, but if I got one, that would be it. Great features, shitty price like you said. I still prefer something I could run a little more easily with, hands free (backpack or gearslinger type). Caveat: I haven't tried running with a messenger bag, maybe it works cinched tight?

I have a 5.11 rush messenger bag. It has molle on it, but it's black so you can't really see it and it doesn't look "tactical". There is a video on it, and it seemed to be really well thought out for actual bike riding, such as the extra strap to keep it on your back, and attachment points for reflector tape and strobes. It has a padded laptop sleeve and a pocket that can be used to store your firearm.

I highly recommend it.

Have you looked at the laptop and messenger bags at Tom Bihn? I have a Medium Cafe Bag, and while it won't fit a laptop (it might hold a smallish tablet), it's a tough and durable bag. Not sure how it would work for CCW - I got the bag three or four years ago, way before I got my permit, and haven't tried putting a pistol in it yet.

Sometimes, on body carry is not practical. I cannot go into the reasons why. When I am not in my usual daily clothes, it is on body carry.


Sure you aren't looking for this?

Timbuk2 bags are fantastic pieces of gear. I am still using my Timbuk2 large that I bought sometime in the mid 90's........

Chrome messenger bag. It should blend in in Seattle and has a front zippered pocket. It's design allows you to grab the bottom with your left hand and swivel it around to the front of your body. Plus there's a open top pocket behind the zippered pocket for mags and blowout kit. They can be found in bikeshops for a bill or a little more. Has all the space you need and waterproof as well.

They have good color selection as well as camo

Got this in small and custom. Very not tactical, but I will be sewing loop velcro in the back pocket, and then making a kydex holster with hook velcro on the back. In fact, I think that is what I am going to use my old G19 holster for that I have. Awesome, I won't need to make a holster.

FYI, I have the Kodiac Gearslinger and the Versipak Jumbo and they both fit tablets just fine. I carry my iPad in one everyday.
