a NEW bag! (finally)
We know the value of a large bag. Functional, stylish, well constructed space is something we have built our name on. But, we know...some of our bags are large! We have listened to your requests, your pleads, your valuable feedback and we have designed a smaller size of one of our most popular bags...introducing the small Messenger!
It's a hybrid of all of our bags. We have taken the uber useful interior pocket layout of The Letter Bag, the simple top flap of The Bookbag, the construction method of the larger Messenger, the craftsmanship of The Market Bag (the bag that started it all!), the water proof cordura used on many of the other bags, added two useful front pockets (one with a snap to keep your phones & iPods easily accessible but safe in place) made the standard length strap 4o inches (with an option for 55"), used welded steel hardware for extra durability and used nickel & lead free plastic zippers….hmmmm, what else? Oh, they're still all designed and manufactured, start to finish, in our Pittsburgh studio.
We have just two colors currently listed in the shop but we will be adding many more. If you don't see what you want, let us know! We plan to offer in the following combinations:
::: Rosewood corded canvas lined in charcoal cordura (in shop now)
::: Brushed Brown canvas lined in organic golden yellow cotton (in shop now)
::coming soon:: (see the original Messenger for color reference)
::: Brushed Brown canvas lined in teal cordura
::: Sand corded canvas lined in teal cordura
::: Provincial Blue corded canvas lined in charcoal cordura
::: Tan brushed canvas lined in bright red cordura
::: Slate brushed canvas lined in matte black cordura
::: Hunter brushed canvas lined in matte black cordura
::: Gunmetal lined in charcoal cordura
If you would like to order one of the "coming soon" colors, simply place your order for one of the colors currently listed in the shop then include a note (or follow with an email) letting us know what color you would like.
