Where do people physically shop for messenger / travel / other bags? I want to see them in person.
AskMeFi loves bags, as do I. It seems like every other week there is a question on how to find the perfect bag. It needs to have room for a tablet, or a water bottle, or whatever. It should be manly or girly or leather or vegan. I've seen links to a plethora of good-looking bags but it is very difficult to judge size from a website, especially one that doesn't feature photos of a bag on a model, and this is important to me. Where do I go to see these in person? Preferably a bunch of different brands in the same place? I've tried REI (mostly backpacks) and department stores (mostly purses). Where are you all finding these perfect bags in real life? I'm interested in all types of bags for the sake of this question.
