More commonly known as a “book bag” this bag is known for its multipurpose usage for work, school, and even in travel. Messenger bags are large rectangular-shaped bags that are stapled for their single shoulder strap yet have spacious storage space that can fit books, notebooks, and more. Plus, messenger bags typically have an adjustable, long shoulder strap that a person can wear across the body or shoulder.
The only downside to the messenger bag is that, it’s designed with a single flap that secures the inside pocket, and while it can be considered the perfect bag for its easy-access pocket, it is also prone to make it easier to lose personal belongings or cluttered objects within the bag with its limited pocket organizers.
A type of backpack that’s rising in popularity because of how you can use it in any environment. A utilitarian is a backpack specially designed for practicality and maximizing efficiency when it comes to carrying every essential you need on any occasion.
This spacious backpack is commonly used by backpackers, mountain hikers, or travelers because of its many compartments, water-resistant fabric, and durability in any weather. When it comes to a tropical country like the Philippines that braves through dozens of storms throughout the year, a utilitarian backpack is also making waves with students, especially for college and university students due to how it acts as an extra protection for their school books, laptops, tables, and other gadgets needed for their class and extracurricular activities.

If you ever watched Anime or seen any Japanese movies or shows, you’ve probably seen young kids walking to and from school with these iconic, box-shaped leather backpacks called the “Randoseru.”
Being closely knit into Japanese culture since the Edo period, Randoseru backpacks were inspired by the cloth bags carried by Dutch soldiers during the Edo period. The leather backpack gained popularity and spread to most if not all elementary schools across Japan after the year 1955. Since then, the Randoseru has been best known as the go-to backpack for small children, but also being sported to be used by adults and even making headways as a school bag in other Asian countries.
The typical color of a school kid’s Randoseru that we see on TV and in Animes is black and sometimes comes with the nametag of the kids or the name of the elementary school that they go to. However, did you know that there are actually 24 different colors for this mainstream Japanese backpack, and as of 2023, some major Japanese bag brands that produce the Randoseru bags even include limited-edition bags inspired by popular animes or a combination of vibrant colors that are beloved by adults and kids alike?
