I have come to find that there are two main camps when it comes to bags. There are those who want a large pocket to dump things in (Ortlieb owners, you know who you are), and then there are those who want all of the pockets so that everything has it’s place. I most certainly fall into the latter camp. I am an organizational nerd. The new for 2014 Booq Boa Nerve Messenger bag should fill the need for pockets and then some.

See just how organized you can keep your belongs past the jump.


The Boa Nerve has an exterior constructed from 1680D ballistic nylon that has a water-repellent coating. The liner is a water-repellent herringbone nylon that is designed to not scratch up your gadgets. The strap uses a magnetic quick release. A durable, rubberized bottom helps protect the bag from normal wear and tear.

Now for the pockets (copy and pasted from their product page)


  • 2 quick access side pockets for U-lock, water bottle or other items;
  • 1 zipper pocket on front of main flap for keys, phone and other small items
  • 1 large exterior zipper pocket on the front of the main bag with built in organizer including; 1 neoprene slip pocket 3 neoprene pen slots, 2 lining slip pockets, one zipper pocket and a removable key fob.

  • Luggage trolley pass-through doubles as a zippered pocket for document storage.
  • Low-profile handle on the back of the bag

Booq has also included a Terralinq™ serial number. This could aid in the recovery of your bag should it go missing.

That should cover just about anything you need to carry on the daily. Not to mention, this would make a great carry on for those that travel often. Parting with $149.95 can make the Boa Nerve your companion on that daily urban grind.

An all-out messenger bag, all features of the Boa nerve work hard for you whether you’re a businessman or bike messenger. A stabilizer strap allows for an ultra-tight fit while on your bike or on the run, while a trolley-pass through on the back of the bag makes the Boa nerve perfect for traveling. A capacious zippered main compartment is divided into parts – a densely padded laptop pocket that will house up to a 15-inch Macbook or PC, three flapped pockets with Velcro closures and one large zipper pocket for other essentials. A large fold-over flap with all-around reflective trim and strap buckles keep the bag safely shut and visible in low-light conditions. Crafted with organization in mind, the Boa nerve’s flap compartment has a built-in organizer, several neoprene slots for pens, notebooks and other must have handy items, including a removable key fob.

“It’s really difficult to find a bag that will transition from the office to the street,” says booq’s Lead Designer, S. Kema Subsomboon. “The Boa nerve does just that, all the while being equipped with everything necessary to keep you and your belongings safe and comfortable. Regular messengers can move around from side to side, so we added the magnetic strap system to keep the bag where you want. This bag is especially for bike commuters, so their safety is of the upmost importance. The reflective trim and buckle straps not only make the bag standout, but keeps you visible at night and during low-light conditions.”

A multi-functional bag, the Boa nerve packs as much gear outside as it does inside, keeping you moving swiftly through your busy day. Two quick access side pockets are perfectly fitted for your bike’s U-lock and a water bottle. A zipper pocket on the bag’s main flap keeps your phone and other small items safe and readily available. A metal magnetic buckle, strap adjuster, and square rings add a rugged yet futuristic touch to the minimalist design of the Boa nerve.

The Boa nerve comes tagged with a Terralinq serial number. Once registered, the booq Terralinq service may help reunite you with your lost & found bag. Boa nerve is now shipping and available for $149.95 at www.booqbags.com and various retailers throughout the U.S.

I don’t like it, I feel like it would be like carrying a briefcase on your back. What I mean is that it is not as “moldable” as other messenger bags. Even in the picture it looks strange……yeah it has a lot of pockets, but so does a backpack!!! Anyway, buy it you like it I will stick to simple messenger bags with minimal pockets, isn’t that what we are all about!!!

I don’t understand messenger bags. Why don’t they just use backpacks?

You see @Taylor – there is this thing called personal preference. It’s pretty cool. Basically, people get to choose what they like and what they spend money on, despite you not understanding it.
