A revamped classic, the Marimekko Olkalaukku Urbaani Messenger Bag adds new, convenient features to the original Olkalaukku.

Find two more storage slots on the back of the bag, perfect for keeping your phone and keys within easy reach. Those who knew and loved the original Olkalaukku will still enjoy the same zippered front flap, front pockets and adjustable strap.

Nice bag but larger and heavier than I imagined

Excellent bag but didn't like flap. Have now purchased the PAL bag that I believe is just what I will like.

The bag is too big, too many zippers and would be awkward for me to carry. For someone else, it might be great.
Miss the old “book bag”
June 6, 2018
For years bought many of the original messenger or book bags and am sorry they are gone. The size of these new bags is larger. Prefer the smaller old version which still accomodates an iPad. Plus do NOT like the new zipper they added that closes the main part of the bag. Sadly I returned it and will cherish the one old style one I still have, beat up or not. :( Marimekko please bring back the original !
  • Size and inner zipper.

Sturdy practical messenger bag with plenty of compartments
January 20, 2018
Nice bag for organizing and carrying your everyday items to and from the office. I commute via train and this bag has lots of room and partitions for phone, train pass, papers etc. would make a great travel bag as well. Color is a rich dark blue so it is a good color if you are worried about it getting dirty or prefer dark colors and may want a change from basic black. Canvas is very heavy weight. This bag is designed to last.
  • Durable, lots of compartments
  • One picky remark: I would prefer the zipper pull to be slightly better quality, but this would not deter my purchase.

Excellent bag!

My bag went all over England, Scotland, and Wales with me last year. It was the perfect size to fit all I needed to carry with me. In 2018 it will go with me to Ireland. It is well constructed and durable, yet is lightweight. It has the right number of sections and pockets, so it travels well. Mine is black.

This is my perfect everyday bag. I have owned the previous version that was lacking zippers. The zipper makes a nearly perfect bag pure perfection.

Is the messenger bag suitable for carrying a laptop computer?
1 Answer
MEASUREMENTS: 11-3/4" H x 12-1/2" W x 5" Depth (30 x 32 x 13 cm) If your laptop can fit inside the above dimensions, you could use it to carry it - keep in mind, however, that this is not a padded case.
