Fall brings with it the promise of travel getaways from weekend leaf-peeping to warmer-weather escapes. Wherever you may go this season the right bag is key. We’ve gathered a variety of American-made options to pack for weekend jaunts and extended holidays and present a different one each day this week. For Wednesday we continue with a colorful messenger bag for making your way around town.

Billykirk for J.Crew Messenger Bag

Hitting all the right notes of nostalgia, this compact collaboration messenger bag stows just enough for a day’s worth of errands or an afternoon field trip. The Pennsylvania-made bag’s nylon red and blue colorway captures a spirited sense of Americana without being kitschy, while the handsome design proves purpose with a 13″ laptop sleeve and multiple exterior compartments for daily essentials.
