Red Oxx took their time developing a superior Messenger Bag. The C.C. Rider fills this niche with a long, thoughtful, and carefully vetted development history. It's a messenger bag for men or women, and of course, for work or school. Since Red Oxx builds the best carry-on bags, creating the best professional messenger bag was a top priority. It had to safely secure a valuable laptop, be easy to stash cords and cables into the raised side pockets, be accessible without having to "unsling" the bag from your shoulder, and be durable, handsome and unique to boot. If you're into smaller laptops or tablets, check out the Chica. While designed originally as a travel purse, the Chica adapted well as a tablet bag, or "mini messenger bag" as defined around here. In either case, over the shoulder bags are a popular laptop bag choice.
