Can I have your opinion on the messenger bag?

I'm thinking about the messenger bag and am wondering if the magnetic closure is enough "security" as opposed to a zip top.

Do you find the magnetic closure "secure" enough on your bags?

TIA!

I will first assume there is a likelihood of pickpocketing in your area. Then for me the security of a magnetic closure depends on a few things...
Is the bag deep, too deep for someone to get their hand down inside without alerting you? Then yes.
Is the bag a crossbody where you can wear it in front or under your coat? Then, yes.
Is the bag more east/west? Then, no.
Is the bag a shoulder bag that fits tight under the arm? Then, yes.
Is the bag going to be carried in the crook of your arm? Then, no.

How do you plan on wearing this bag? Can you post a picture of the style?

Thanks jburgh.

I am a little worried about pick pockets and someone grabbing my bag, I think coz I'm getting old and not as feisty as I used to be. Hence, the messenger style.

TIA for all your thoughts!
