Backpacks

I have always found backpacks to be a lot more comfortable and if you get a good sized one there is a lot of room in them. Messenger bags don't seem to have quite as much room I have found and a lot of the time you are carrying all the weight of the bag on one shoulder rather than two, with a backpack you spread the weight out over two shoulders which prevents shoulder pain and makes it more comfortable. I would go for a backpack over a messenger bag every time.

more comfortable

While I have to admit that I prefer the look of most messenger bags, I find a backpack to be more practical and more comfortable. The shape of most backpacks allows for more room for items plus side pouches for things like water bottles and phones. Also, the backpack is more comfortable to wear. Messenger bags filled with books and a laptop dig into my shoulder in a way that is painful and uncomfortable. There are so many cute styles of backpacks to choose from these days from online retailers. A backpack is a more practical and comfortable choice!

Back Bag

Back bag lets me carry stuff easily.Because the weight is divided equally among the two shoulders,I don't feel the weight much.And I guess that is good for health too,because if excess weight acts in a single shoulder,it may cause bad postures. So I prefer backbags....

More even weight distribution

Although I understand the fashionable appeal of messenger bags, they can be tough on the shoulders because the weight is distributed on one side. Because I carry a lot of things with me, I prefer to have a backpack because the weight is evenly distributed on both of my shoulders and it puts less of a burden on my back.

It's form vs. function

I generally love the look of messenger bags a lot more than I enjoy those of backpacks. However, I'm finding myself walking around buildings and parking lots very often (and will continue doing so in the forseeable future), and a backpack has been a lot more supportive and comfortable in longer-term use when compared to a messenger bag. I don't know how many times I had to constantly shift my messenger bag because it hurt my shoulders. A backpack with properly-tightened straps is not nearly as troublesome or painful.

more comfortable

I've tried both and this one is just more comfortable to me since you have the weight of the bag equally distributed between both shoulders. A messenger bag can be practical since you could pull your items quickly but you need to carry the bag for a longer time than pulling out an item or putting an item in so I think it's more practical to prioritize the time you'd be actually carrying the bag.

Better for your back

Messenger bags can only be worn by wearing it on one of your shoulders. Backpacks, on the other hand, are worn on two of your shoulders. Both equally look good and are very common. I give my vote to Backpacks because they are healthier for your back and shoulders in the long run.

Messenger bags

Messenger bags are more elegant and they come in many different styles and materials to complement your outfit and suit different preferences. I remember having a couple of different messenger bags as a student as they were spacious and quite professional looking at the same time. Bags which one wears on the back are good enough when you need to travel by bus for example, as your hands are free, but other than that I prefer messenger bags.

Cool bag

or me messenger bag is the deal, my appearance is always different when i use messenger bag. I keep flipping it from side to side and it feels cool, a lot of friends use it too. The bag makes us look like boss of all boss.

Access to the bag is something that is very important and messenger bag has an "A" on that, in grocery store i pick anything of choice, inserting it into the bag after payment is not an issue, it enhances my appearance.

More Convenient

One of the biggest things I hate is the fact that if you need your wallet, and it is in your back bag, you need to take it off, find a place to rest it (say counter or floor) in order to get your wallet out. However, with a messenger bag, you can just reach in to the side and grab it. Moreover it looks much sleeker and more professional.

Looks more stylish

From a work perspective I'd rather a messenger bag since I think backpacks can look a bit childish. Messenger bags have a good style to them but also have lots of space for your belongings.

I prefer a backpack for longer walk distances because that way both straps are even and supports on your back.

I have both types of bags. I like both and I use them depending on the situation and what will I need when going out. If I will stay longer out of home I take the back bag with me cause it will be more practical and comfortable to carry the things. If I'm only going out for a couple of hours I take with me the messenger bag as I won't need much stuff. Honestly, I can't pick one cause both are very useful in their own way.

Since hand bags are not for men, I don't use a messenger bag or hand bag. I use a back bag and I am very comfortable using a backpack bag. Since it has lot of space, you can carry so many thins of you use a back pack bag. Since the bag is supported by both shoulders, it is easy to carry. hand bad on the other hand is small it is more of ornamental thing than for real use.

To be honest, I don’t carry any of the choices above because I work as an executive of a bank and only the regular handbag fits me. However, my husband is fond of using his camera that’s why he never fails to carry his messenger bag just so can comfortably bring his camera along. Some of his friends already tease him messenger because of that bag but he just laughs off the moniker because that messenger bag that was given to him by my nephew is very comfortable and convenient to use.

Well, It's all depends on your needs. I used back bag if I need to carry a lot of things and I'm going to travel far to my normal destination, and I use the messenger bag if I don't need to bring a lot of things, and just my phone and money. It's also depends on the security of the place. Most of the time the victims of pickpocketeers is the person using big bags like this back bag.

Since i need to always have easy access to the items i will want to use then the messenger bag will be the best for me, because it is more mobile to carry my items in it to work daily.

I'm all for messenger bags when I'm travelling commute in the Metro because it's smaller and that means convenience and safer than back packs. Unlike back packs where the bag is at your back, messenger bags are at your side or your front which is safer from pickpockets when commuting. It's also more convenient when passing through security checks. Although it's smaller than back packs.
