For Christmas I put a STM messenger bag on my wish list and thanks to my mother-in-law, I got what I wanted. I donâ€™t often ask for things sight unseen but the reviews for this bag were excellent and I had a good feeling about it too. Well, today I received the bag and so far I love it. My art supplies fit perfectly. I also like that it only has one clip on the main flap (no velcro!) which it makes it easier to open. A pocket (with velcro) located inside the bag is perfect for protecting my iPad and sketchbooks. Overall, the bag seems to be well made and the stitching should hold it together pretty well.
Donâ€™t I already own a messenger bag to hold all my art supplies, you ask? Well yes, I do own a large Timbuk2 bag that worked great when I went to Greece last year but I find it too big for a day out sketching close to home (click here to see a drawing of my Timbuk2 bag). Now Iâ€™m more exited than ever to hit the road and find a cool place to draw once the weather improves. Rain, rain go away . . .
