Now the reason I chose a different style and opted for the Zeus messenger bag is the styling and color. While both bags you can take across the globe or across campus, I was interested in a versatile bag that would work well for conferences and meeting. I love that this bag comes in linen and looks more feminine that typical and boring black and weights only 2.2 lbs. It is lighter than other ecbc messenger bags and that was another deciding factor. Laptops, paper, water bottles and other items all add up in weight so I don't want to start with a heavy bag and feel bogged down.
Here's what I like:
The handle is super-padded so it feels good when you grip it
The should strap adjusts and is also padded (so it won't dig into your shoulder)
The nylon is water resistant so you don't have to worry about rain, sleet or snow
The zippers are self-repairing
The pocket for your water bottle is zippered so it won't fall out if the bag tips over
There are multiple compartments to stay organized.
There's a quick access front pocket which comes in handy for your boarding pass, passport, lip balm, scarf or what ever you want to grab easily.
As mentioned I like the color and the fact that it is light weight.
The Zeus messenger bag by ecbc is stylish, fresh and smartly designed. It retails for $119 and comes in a variety of colors including black but also berry, blue and green.
