My cat destroyed my Namaste messenger bag, which, from what I can gather, is no longer available. :waah: I do have an e-mail into Namaste, but it isn't looking good. I've found a couple here and there on EBay and the like, but none in chocolate and that's really the only guy-friendly color in that style.
I have been out of "the scene" for some time and was wondering if anyone can suggest any wonderful bags for me. I have many (Bagsmith, Mango Moon, and the huge orange zillion pocketed one to name a few,) but none that I love like I loved the Namaste. I have long coveted the Jordana Paige Messenger, but JimmyBeansWool did a video review and it looks a lot less substantial than I had expected and for its price tag, less substantial isn't what I'm looking for. (I also hear there are complaints of "slouching," but I'm not sure that would even bother me lol)
I want something fun and dare I say fashionable, but of course functional (I like pockets, but not a zillion pockets, no velcro (learned that the hard way) and large enough to carry at least a couple few projects (not necessarily huge, though, but more than just a couple balls of yarn and the knitting, I liked the sections in the namaste for that, sock here, sweater there, etc.) that I can carry where ever, but also has to be at least somewhat guy friendly.
Help please! Right now I'm still planning on a Jordana Paige messenger and I'm certain I'd love it (wanted one FOREVER, but got the Namaste instead a few years back,) but hoping someone has something fantastic to suggest that I haven't heard of yet.
Thanks in advance!
P.S. Price is sort of an issue..... I'm reluctantly willing to drop $92 on the Jordana Paige, but I would say that's the very most I'm willing to spend and would prefer something a bit less costly. (Not saying it isn't worth every penny by any means, I love them and I know they are well loved.)
