Herschel Supply Co. ● Odell Messenger

Herschel Supply Co. went a long way from its beginnings. The Canadian brand that made traveling with pleasure its mission is a regular here on The Maxiemillion for a reason: its sharp approach to urban fashion.

It is not a luggage brand, nor a clothing brand but rather an entity whose mission is to make every journey pleasant, thinking of every little detail to make such mission successful.

This is the reason why its range is not exactly wide: it’s huge. This is why skateboarding came into the mix, as it’s easy to tell after the recent collaborations with Independent and more recently Santa Cruz: skateboarding and traveling go hand in hand.

This item here worn by Irene C belongs to a Herschel category that never made it to a post here: a messenger bag. Called originally in this way because New York bike messengers expressed their preference towards this shape of bag, this is a urban favorite among commuters. Now let’s go deep on this Odell Messenger.

I can tell that there is a strategy that lead to the creation of its two pockets. Don’t forget that commuters find themselves often on public transportation, one of the favorite spots of pickpockets.

That is the reason why you can count on its external pocket for easy access items such as your smartphone or your portable charger, while you can place your wallet inside the hanging internal zippered pocket.

With a capacity of 26,5 liters this bag is suitable for an everyday usage but it can also carry that extra change when you go sleep out at night.

Its quick release webbing crossbody strap is undoubtedly a plus and so is the handle as an alternative way to carry this messenger bag when you need to look for an object inside.

Last but absolutely not least feel free to ignore what I wrote here above and fall in love with its rugged vintage looking Brushstroke Camo pattern. You know that you can abuse its ballistic nylon twill but to make it with such colorway is even better.
