    Atlanta's favorite messenger bag (poll?)

    The shop I work at is considering stocking messenger bags. Three of the staff recommended Timbuk2 for various reasons. So the owner (who can't/won't get Chrome for some reason so that ends that discussion) wants me to find out what everyone's favorite Timbuk2 bag is. Thanks.

    After reading too much of Bike Snob NYC's highly entertaining rants about hipster, poser-messenger style, I am chagrined at myself for wanting to get a messenger bag. Come to discover, a messenger bag just makes sense for me on my commute. I'd be interested what everyone's recs are.

    I'd like a moderately-sized one in an obnoxious high-visibility color- red, yellow, lime, etc. Not interested in a black one.

    I've got what I guess is the classic T2 bag, a medium sized one made of ballistic fabric. For me messenger bags are the things to use when I'm doing the multi-modal thing.
