i got: A Weekend Bag by m0851

My Weekend Bag by m0851 is one of my favourite bags and gets a lot of usage. It has a laptop storage pocket holds my EEE Pc and still has room to spare for the multitudes of crap I manage to bring with me daily. This bag is a year old now but I’ve noticed that it’s very popular with some of my friends. So popular that I’ve decided to take photos when I run into someone with one.


Mine is the Robin’s egg blue version. I was salvating over the purple one too, but alas that is not mine but Monique from Moonrox’s.


The brown version belongs to Andrew Sardone from Now Magazine. The bag’s popularity really lies in it’s versatility and minimal design. The buttery m0851 leather helps also. It’s utilitarian design is something that both men and women can use. It lacks a gender, which I find very appealing. Even though the bags are produced season after season, m0851 changes the colours each season.

m0851 is a Canadian company that still designs and manufactures in Quebec. Yay!

You can purchase the Weekend Bag online at m0851 or in their Yorkville store at 23 St. Thomas Street

  1. Anita,
    I just got this bag for myself as a birthday present this year. Mine is khaki and I’ve worn it every single day since I made the purchase. I used to have an M0851 messenger bag in the denim colour but SIZE RULES! I can pack so much more stuff into the weekender. Thanks for the lovely pics of your and your friends’ different coloured bags. I wish I could get one in every colour!

  2. Love this store. Went on a self-birthday present rampage four years ago and bought the big duffel bag, the “old” hobo bag, small messenger and three pouches – in one day. Guess I should add that it was their sample sale. But alas, looking at my hobo right now and it’s ripping. sigh.

    P.S. we worked together back in the day…
