In the none-too-distant past, China was the defacto home of manufacturing. Not any longer. More and more companies are choosing to make their products in the U.S., and that includes the Tucker & Bloom North to South Messenger Bag

The North to South Messenger Bag features an outer layer of waxed, water-resistant canvas. It'll protect electronics during inclement weather and, with a 13.5-inch opening, it's big enough to hold most laptops, along with a smartphone, batteries, and cords in its specially designed side pocket. A removable cross strap comes in handy when biking to work, and leather trim dresses up this otherwise casual bag for office or weekend use.

But the best thing? The Tucker & Bloom North to South Messenger bag was designed and made by the father and son team of Case and David Bloom, who started the company together and continue to work shoulder to shoulder in their Nashville factory. The pair guarantees their bags for life.
