Review on Canvas Messenger Bag For Men - XINCADA Shoulder Bag Ideal For Travel, Work, And Business Purposes by Terry Keown

Travel/Camera Bag at Decent Price

I bought the larger size Xincada bag for an upcoming trip overseas. I needed a bag to hold my camera equipment, a Mmicro 4/3 's Olympus and extra lens. I just received the bag so I can't comment on durability, will update this review if that's a problem. The bag is a fairly heavy canvas. The main compartment holds my camera with lens attached and a spare lens. There is still room for an umbrella, pouch with charging adapter & cables, small water bottle and jacket in stuff sack. There are 2 zipper compartments within the main compartment, 1 smart phone size and 1 mesh. My 8" tablet fits in the back zippered pocket. There is a front zipper pocket on the flap which can hold notebook, travel documents etc. Under the flap is a zipper compartment with organization pockets that hold a pen, small flashlight, maybe a smaller phone, (I have a 5000 mah backup battery in one pocket), a key chain hanger (wish it was longer) and space for additional gear. The 1.5 in wide strap adjusts for shoulder carry, or cross body, and the bag does not feel over-sized on my hip. So, overall, it meets the needs I was looking for.Some things I wish were better; I wish the strap were removable, replaceable. There is no padding on the strap, and that could be an issue for extended carry. I added a 'Strap Gummy' (big purse gummy) on the strap to keep it from slipping during shoulder carry. I wish there was some waterproofing applied, I will Scotchgard it to give it minimal light rain protection. While the zippers seem substantial and pull evenly and without hanging up, I am not a fan of the leather zipper pulls. I will probably replace those. The 2 side pockets are very small, and not sure they are even useful. An elastic side pocket, big enough to hold a water bottle would have been useful.I like the looks of the bag, I bought the brown(tan, camel whatever they call it), it looks vintage without being ostentatious. If durability is not an issue, I will be very pleased with this purchase.

  • It's an excellent option for individuals who prefer a no-fuss, low-maintenance bag
  • The bag's shape may become misshapen over time
