Trash bag Landfill messenger bag

Anyone using one of these? Looking for something bigger than my Chrome Metropolis but still a messenger style bag.

If you aren't using it for work, I'd say it's overkill, it's a pretty big bag.

Freight baggage used to make a great messenger bag. They should bring it back for the newcomers.

Who says that it won't be for work?

I have a custom Garbage Truck. I can't say anything specifically about the Landfill, but I can say their bags are well built and durable. The one I have is also quite comfortable, even when loaded down.

I was looking at buying one before. I have no hands on experience with this company, but for that amount of money I passed over it. The strap looks like it wouldn't be that comfortable and I don't like that old school strap system as a whole for tightening and loosening. If you end up getting one, let me know what you think about it.

The strap and clasping system overall worries me, and the price is above my comfort range to try something blindly. Chrome has it down pretty well. They need to make a bigger bag though.

The clasp looks similar to what Reload used to use on their bags. I thought it was a decent design, though it did eat up the strap over time. Never seen one of these Trash bags in person though. I have a Chrome Berlin, which is gigantic (so much though that I barely use it except for grocery runs), but I guess they don't make it anymore. Mission Workshop makes good stuff too. I have one of their smaller bags for general carry.

Hmm, that Berlin bag is about what I am looking for. You thinking of parting ways with it?

Yeah ReLoad pretty much uses that exact config as their standard. I have one with the 215 strap, it still has those teeth that kinda chew the strap up after a while like you said though. If I bought one over again I would have gotten the split strap with the cobra buckle but they didn't have it at the time.

Nah, it also happens to be the perfect size for travelling, so it's my main suitcase as well. If you come across one on the use market though, it'd probably do you right.

Trying to make more Jimmy John's deliveries on each run. Really hate turning down tips because I can't fit more bags in my bag.

Have you considered the Trash Bags Monster? (he asks only half seriously) It has a 130L capacity and it's explicitly designed for food delivery.

That bag is no dang joke lol. Might be a slight bit of overkill for me haha. I could take some serious food in that however. We do get catering orders and party trays and what not and as a biker, I miss out on those orders that are usually corporate and have good tips on there. Our store has done several 1k+ orders before and wouldn't it be crazy for all of it to show up with one guy, on a bike?

I wish someone who owns a Trashbag would let us know the deal. That landfill is a super huge bag for $220, not many messenger bags that size around really. Most companies I've seen stop around 3,000 CI, and are more expensive.

THIS. I just want someone who has ridden with a Chrome and MW bag to ride with a Trash or Reload or Frieght cargo style bag and let me know if it's worth the custome small company price tag.

IME Mission Workshop is the best i've experienced at a sub $200 price. My Vandal will eat up loads if you need it too, but I love that you can zip up the huge expanse and it feels like a small tight fitting bag when riding. Messenger back wise, I just like their fit better than Chromes. I own their smallest messenger (the monty I think) and it's perfect for small loads. I've ridden with a Shed, their largest bag, for a day 2/3's loaded and it was fine. I love their bags in general because they feel great when loaded and even better with a small load. If I needed one bag I'd keep my Vandal even though it's overkill for 80% of my needs. It's just so versatile.

All that being said MW bags that I have used don't have enough pockets and small storage areas, and they aren't designed to carry louds outside the bag, although i've accomplished it numerous times. Those are both things that have intrigued me about Trash/Reload/Freight style big bags but I just haven't read enough to justify the purpose when i love my current bags. MW bags can be found used on eBay for relatively fair prices IMO, while Trash/Reload?freight bags rarely come up and people often ask near retail. That might attest to their quality, but it makes it tough for someone like myself to buy one just to compare it and possibly not want to keep it.

damn that was long. sorry for typos, blame it on 3rd Street Aleworks Puddle Jumper Pale Ale. it's delicious.

TLDR Mission Workshop bags used on eBay are the best bag for your money. now go enjoy a beer.

I use a trash vortex for work. You cannot go wrong with the brand, the price is worth it for a forever bag. Heh, that's the deal!

So I have narrowed it down to the Landfill from Trash or the Super Pro XXL from Bailey Works. At this point, the price is a non issue as they are almost the same price. I am just more interested in pros and cons of each from actual users. Lots of people have the Trash brand but they are dual strap bags mostly. That style is just not what I am looking for with my "job" and use. I like my Chrome Metropolis, just wish it was bigger, like 50-60 liters vs the 40 liters that it is.

I'm sorry I can't be more helpful. This guy probably has reviews of both of those, and even more bags you've never heard of: BagBot
