Messenger bags come a dime a dozen these days. Although, sometimes it can be a challenge to find a Vegan friendly messenger bag that I love. Well, I found the perfect answer for men and women.
Lindsay Lawrence, the founder of Metamorphic Gear takes the ordinary concept of the Messenger Bag and created something new and unique.
This bag is upcycled from the Sails of boats. If Metamorphic Gear did not use these sails, they would all sit in a landfill. Lindsay expressed to me, ” I wanted a trendy messenger bag that would work for office and walking around the city! We call it eco-stealth.”
Metamorphic Gear has been so kind to our readers by giving them a 20% discount on any bagwhen entering the code VFB at check out!
Thanks Metamorphic Gear!
The Ivory & Black bag is the one I have. The bag is certainly a favorite and used by myself and “the guy!”
The black shoulder straps are made with upcycled seat-belt’s and the entire bag is water proof! Each bag has character since it is made from sails that were once used on the ocean. I personally like that, I know I have a one of a kind bag!
There are many places to put items in the bag, including the top flap that has a magnet coin so to make sure the items in that side pocket stay put!
The bag can hold a 15″ laptop easily as well as a battery.
Don’t forget to check out this contest, “Seamless in Seattle” . If you click on Lindsay Lawrence, you will find he is one of the 13 finalists the in the competition. On July 28th the final results will be calculated! “We hope you win Lindsay!” – VFB

I know the below picture is not pretty to look at, but this is what a bird can ingest at any given time because of human action. 🙁
