Egoelife Unisex Satchel Messenger Bag Review

While Egoelife isn’t a great name for a brand, the Unisex Messenger Bag is certainly an excellent messenger bag. The Egoelife Unisex Satchel Messenger Bag is one of the most popular Messenger Bag available in Amazon and we decided to take it on a spin. After 3 months of use, this is my long-term review of the Egoelife Unisex Satchel Messenger Bag.

I have divided the review into various sections. You can use the table of contents down below to navigate to the section you desire.


Let’s start this review with the Egoelife Messenger Bag design. After all, it is in this department that this messenger bag excels.

The Egoelife Messenger Bag is made out of canvas and has a cotton lining. The zippers used on this messenger bag is of high-quality. Unfortunately, the shoulder strap isn’t of the highest quality.

The bag is comfortable to wear and the company does indicate the bag is a great choice for traveling and camping. However, I don’t think that’s very true.

This Satchel is great for school and work where you need to carry it for a limited time. But you can’t clearly use it for a long time without experiencing pain on your shoulders.

The Egoelife Messenger Bag is great for a laptop but with a caution

If you are planning to use this messenger bag and carry a laptop along, you will need to get a laptop sleeve. This messenger bag isn’t padded in anyways and there are numerous reviews stating that the inner zipper scratched the laptop itself. The canvas material will certainly not protect your laptop in case of a drop either. So, it’s going to be a good move if you get a sleeve for your laptop.

This Canvas made messenger bag looks and feels premium. However, if you look closely, you will find imperfections. But it’s something that can be completely ignored considering the price.

The messenger bag is a solid choice for carrying a tablet and a notebook. If you have a tablet such as an iPad 10.2, make sure you have it inside a case. The messenger bag provides no protection whatsoever. And like I mentioned earlier, the same goes for the laptops.

Apart from this minor complaint, the bag is really good. The bag is available in 2 colors. I went with the Coffee color option but the Charcoal color option is just as good.

The bag comes with a detachable shoulder strap which is also adjustable. The strap itself is 5-feet in length. The zip in this bag is also very smooth and I haven’t had any issues with it.

On the inside, you will find a smooth cotton lining which makes sure that none of your items get scratched.

There’s no doubt about it- the price of the Egoelife Messenger Bag is what has made this bag so popular. Priced under $25, you really can’t go wrong with this messenger bag.

And it’s because of the price that the inconsistency in the build of this bag can be forgiven (more on the Durability section). When the best quality messenger bags are selling for hundreds of dollars, getting a messenger bag that feels and looks good is a bargain. The Egoelife LB-BBPHF18 Unisex Casual Messenger Bag is just that.

Sure, this Satchel Messenger Bag will not for years without wearing out but I firmly believe that you will receive the money’s worth before the bag gives up on you.

Brand Value


Heard of Egoelife before? No? Don’t worry, you are not alone. And if it wasn’t for Amazon, I doubt this brand would even exist today.

So, it goes without saying that the brand value of Egoelife is non-existant. However, it’s worth noting that the brand is well valued by Amazon. It’s currently Amazon’s Choice of messenger bags.

And people seem to show love to the brand as well. The messenger bag has over 900 reviews of the Egoelife Messenger Bag and most have good things to say about the bag.

Truth be told, I came across this bag because it was featured on Amazon’s messenger bag section. I am pretty sure you came to know about this messenger bag through Amazon as well.

Egoelife also has a good reputation for aftersales. I got to experience this personally as well. I had an issue with my Messenger bag where the strap was falling apart in weeks of use. When I contacted the company, the company was happy to send me a replacement strap for free of cost. Sweet, isn’t it?

I have owned this Egoelife Messenger bag for 3 months now and I have mixed feelings about this bag when it comes to durability. While some may complain that 3 months isn’t enough of a time to discuss the durability of the product, I agree.

But since I already had my fair share of issues with the build of this bag, I thought I would mention it here in this section.

After owning this bag for just 3 weeks, I noticed that the strap was starting to wear-off. I contacted Egoelife and told them about the issue and the company sent a replacement- no questions asked.

When I searched through other reviews on Amazon, I figured that I wasn’t the only one with the issue. It seems that Egoelife Messenger Bag has a few quality control issues. But thankfully for the customers, the replacement is easy and hassle-free.

With 3 months of use, I feel this messenger bag will last for about 2 years before it becomes unusable. If you are using it daily for school or work, you shouldn’t expect it to last any longer.

There you go. This was my review of the Egoelife LB-BBPHG18 Satchel Messenger Bag. Do you have any questions regarding this bag? Let me know in the comments section down below.
