Upcycle: Waste wall tents
A messenger bag is timeless and since it’s made from a canvas wall tent, it may actually last forever. The one we tested had a “No Flames in Tent” warning across the front flap, a relic testifying to its previous life. The inside pocket is divided in two: a larger area and a thinner sleeve perfect for a laptop. It’s not padded but the tent material is waterproof, deflecting an unexpected rainstorm on a long ride to work, a big buckle keeps everything locked inside and the over-shoulder strap is wide for dispersing the load.
