Looking for a bag that’s practical and hip to carry to your shift? A messenger bag may be just the perfect thing. Whether you’re a male or female nurse, you’ll love the multiple outside pockets to organize all your things and an adjustable cross body strap that leaves your hands free.

Messengers are roomy enough for your nursing gear, paperwork and a packed lunch. For your off-duty hours, throw in your gym clothes or your computer. Messengers are also great all-weather bags that come in a range of fabrics from waterproof material such as nylon to cotton canvas and leather. The waterproof bags are great in the rain and can double as your beach bag!

    I have two Timbuk2 bags, both custom-made in San Francisco. Rickshaw Bag Works and Chrome also make tough and well-designed bags in the city.

    Make sure that the bag you buy is not only well designed but built well from durable materials. Timbuk2, Rickshaw, and Chrome bags are expedition-tough with durability proven on the streets of San Francisco by bike messengers, so they will
    withstand the abuse a nurse puts up with every day, too.

  2. This is a cool messenger bag. Great for travel nursing
