    It’s time to throw out your old high school backpack – you’re in college now. Upgrade to something hip, stylish, and adult – a bag that says “you” but can also carry your life from the dorm room to the class room. You might be tempted to settle for a generic messenger bag, but do you know why messenger bags were once called newsboy bags? Because they’re for boys – and it’s time we adapted this style for ourselves by adding the colors and features we want.

    The L.L. Bean Custom Heatwave Messenger Bag isn’t your typical laptop messenger bag. It’s taken the design once popular only with the grunge generation of the 90s and funked it up with the most customizable bag on the market. Choose from 14 solids and plaids to customize your top, middle, and bottom panels, and create a look that’s truly your own by selecting one of three different zipper pulls. As always, L.L. Bean will monogram your bag with your choice of 12 different styles.

    L.L. Bean Custom Heatwave Messenger Bag has 3 main compartments and 2 smaller pockets for stashing extra goodies like your cell phone, keys, or wallet. In the back of the largest compartment there is a sneaky space made just for laptops that secures with a sturdy Velcro™ strap, and it’s so well designed that you’ll still have room for textbooks.

    L.L. Bean is known for making “the best book packs on earth” and each of their designs are durable and functional. All their bags have 3M Scotchlite™ Reflective Material so you’ll be seen walking home from late classes, and all their products use YKK™ Brand Zippers to ensure the most durable and reliable seal on the market. The L.L. Bean Custom Heatwave Messenger Bag secures with a heavy-duty clip to make sure your contents are secure. All L.L. Bean bags come with lifetime guarantees and returns and exchanges are their specialty.
