This bag took a second look. The Terryl, though beautifully named, did not stand out to me, initially, as a bag I just needed to have. But coming back to it, I began to see all its greatness.
The Terryl Woven Messenger Satchel has the best of both worlds: it’s a messenger bag, and it’s a shoulder bag. And it’s super comfortable in both roles.
As a shoulder bag, it slouches nicely under your arm, and isn’t too huge, making it a perfect everyday companion. The leatherette is surprisingly smooth, and it reminds me of the cool side of the pillow when I put my arm down on it.
You know what I’m talking about.
Doubly at-home as a messenger bag, the Terryl just loves to be next to ya fanny.
And that has nothing to do with the bag’s namesake. *pointsatself*
Because the long strap is made of a thicker, woven material, one needn’t be afraid to lug everything possibly needed for a wilderness trek in there. The Terryl can handle it.
Aside from being well-constructed, this bag comes in two rock-solid colors: black and tan. Now, I’ve never carried a black bag before, but the lack of “hey, look at my boring black bag, I take myself so seriously” quality of the Terryl is intriguing. Perhaps it’s the weaving along the bottom and straps. Perhaps it’s just boho-cum-rocker enough to attract my chameleon eye. (Not like, literally a chameleon eye. I have human eyes. Chameleon eyes are sick.)
And, of course, the ombre action of the tan brings out my old hippie self. Either color is a go, really.
So what do we think? Gonna show the Terryl Woven Messenger Satchel some love? (I enjoyed typing “the Terryl” throughout this post, by the way. It’s like that.)
