A messenger bag (also called a courier bag) is a type of sack, usually made out of some kind of cloth that is worn over one shoulder with a strap that goes across the chest resting the bag on the lower back. While messenger bags are sometimes used by couriers, they are now also an urban fashion icon. Some types of messenger bags are called carryalls. A smaller version is often called a sling bag. This design of bag has been used in the transportation of mail and goods by numerous types of messengers, including Pony Express riders, postal workers, messengers on foot, and bicycle couriers. Some Royal Mail carriers in the United Kingdom currently use large messenger bags to deliver mail in lieu of a Postbag. The design of the modern messenger bag traces its origin to the utility lineman’s bag of the 1950s made by De Martini Globe Canvas Company, which was founded by Frank De Martini and run with his two daughters, Kathleen and Marge. The bags originally allowed lineman to carry necessary tools within easy reach while climbing utility poles. Similar in function to backpacks, messenger bags ensure comfort to people carrying heavy and or bulky items, while allowing easy access to the contents. Messenger bags typically incorporate features that make them particularly suitable for cycling, such as fittings that make it easy to adjust the shoulder strap, quick release buckles, an adjustable hinged buckle, and the ability to attach a variety of accessories, such as lights, phone holsters, or U-locks.
