    Im looking for a messenger bag or a dj bag that is simple, stylish and works well while im riding my bike. I've seen some in person that have a little side strap opposite the main strap so that it takes on a backpack like quality, but i can't find it online. Halp!

    I've ridden with a backpack with a strap system like the jbag and wouldn't recommend it. No matter how tight I cinched down the straps, the bag would move around. I think you're better off with a typical messenger bag or backpack if you're gonna ride with it.

    chrome or reload, chrome has the most comfortable straps and has the stabilizer strap you're looking for. as long as the bag isn't packed lopsidedly there won't be any problems with it shifting around.

    Chrome bags are mehh. The seat belt buckle closure is tacky.
    I try and support bay area made stuff when it comes to bicycle products. I'd check out Zugster bags or Freight baggage. Both are hand made in SF. I've got a Zugster and love it.
