A messenger bag without a flap, interesting concept right? Well the folks over at Booq have done just that, they created a messenger bag that doesn’t have a flap. Can you still call it a messenger bag now though? This thing has over 20 pockets to make sure you can take all of your stuff with you, but it’s costly, then again anything of quality usually is.. The 13” versions goes for $129.99 and the 15” sells for $149.95
For years, messenger bags have been designed with flimsy exteriors that lose shape, collapse, and look sloppy when not packed to their limit.

Ideal while on the go, Mamba catch messenger bag allows you to quickly access frequently used items using one of three external zippered pockets that feature a unique key ring holder and two mobile device sleeves. The backside features three large pockets including a document holder that doubles as a luggage trolley pass-through. Sturdy and lightweight, Mamba catch can be carried messenger style using the removable shoulder strap and pad or briefcase style with its comfort designed top mounted handle.
No velcro and no buckles, just one zip allows access to the bag’s contents. Designed around the densely padded laptop compartment, Mamba catch’s interior is loaded with over 20 pockets and compartments of various sizes. Booq’s diagonal design staggers each pocket’s contents making it easy to locate your gear at a glance. “Mamba catch is the most intelligent messenger we’ve ever designed,” says booq founder and CEO Thorsten Trotzenberg. “One zipper peels the front back like a backpack and the bag holds form, making it easy to locate items while not having to fumble with a flimsy flap or collapsing pockets.” Mamba catch also includes a removable accessory pouch perfect for loose cables, portable hard drive, or small personal items.
