Hello folks.hoping to find advice on messenger bags. I read today's post 10 Best Laptop Setups
The only tip the author provided was to "carry your bag across your lower back in a messenger bag style."
I walk about 1.2 miles a day to work and then again back home. I'm a fast walker and I often wear good walking shoes. I have a messenger back that I usually wear at my lower back or over my butt. I carry my laptop and occasionally a book or notebook, so it's a relatively light load. For the past half year or so, about as long as I've been walking, I've been suffering from lower back pain. I've tried all sorts of exercises and regiments to help relieve it, but now I'm wondering if the bag is actually the problem.
Are some bags better than others? I'm assuming a backpack is probably my best bet, but I would prefer a bag that can also be my purse, i.e. something not too cumbersome that I can take to lunch or whatnot. Any tips would be helpful.
