Do yourself a favor and read Ryan Barr’s About page. Life rarely follows a straight path and Ryan’s path is no different. Ryan sells beautifully crafted leather goods on his site and his Whipping Post Vintage Messenger Bag ($265) fits that description perfectly. The bag is 100% vegetable tanned leather. It has a padded laptop pouch lined in suede, a back newspaper pouch, an adjustable padded strap, and finally a key lanyard. The bag harkens back to the old postal working bag but has a leaner more streamlined feel. Great design, great leather, and great hardware make this bag a must-have.
