Made with uncommonly thick 24 oz. waxed canvas from Scotland, which is extremely rugged and water resistant, the Large Gear Bag is a functional and dependable workhorse, built for constant abuse. Four interior pockets, 2 exterior pockets, and a laptop divider keep all your items divided and organized. Divider unclips and lays flat in the bag to create a single compartment. You can easily fit a 15″ laptop, iPad, books, and a change of clothes with room to spare. We took inspiration on our closures from an old WWII grenade pouch, which gives quick one-handed access into your bag, while still keeping items secure. Comfortably carry on your shoulder with the adjustable canvas shoulder strap and leather shoulder pad. Remove the strap and carry by the top leather handle, or convert it into a backpack. Thick Old Bull leather plating is riveted to the back around to the bottom of the bag for comfort and structure; the pad plating also doubles as pockets and allows for items such as a tripod, smartphone, and airline tickets. If you’re in college, the military, or someone just looking for the perfect everyday canvas bag, our heavy duty, canvas and leather briefcase will go seamlessly into any urban or outdoor environment.

Product Features

  • MESSENGER BAG FOR MEN, WOMEN, TRAVEL, SCHOOL – A functional design easily holds a 15″ Macbook and Notepad Holder with room to spare.

  • THE BEST CANVAS AND LEATHER BAGS – When we set out to make the world’s premier waxed canvas bags, we enlisted our Saddleback philosophy of using not only the highest quality materials, but also emphasizing industry leading standards in design quality. We use super-tough, 24oz. Scottish waxed canvas, and Marine-Grade Stainless Steel 316 hardware. Stress points are copper riveted, fortified with full-grain, vegetable tanned leather, and stitched with UV resistant, multi-filament polyester thread.
  • 24 OUNCE SCOTTISH WAXED CANVAS – Waxed canvas is the original water resistant fabric, and has been used for centuries for its waterproofing qualities. It’s the perfect material for a life-long bag. Full-grain vegetable tanned leather straps and plating add strength and structure, further armoring this bag. Full grain is the top layer of the cowhide, which is the most expensive and durable part, and much higher quality than genuine leather. When you want the best leather, always go full-grain.
  • HIGHEST QUALITY MATERIALS – Our army green, waxed canvas and leather bags sure look pretty, but they’re as tough as it gets. The Large Gear Bag is stitched with marine-grade polyester thread, the same threading used on parachutes. We use sturdy copper rivets that are pounded by hand and surgical-grade Stainless Steel 316 hardware, tested to hold up to 750 lbs. Built with as few pieces of canvas possible to minimize seams, we reinforce all stress points with extra thick old bull leather.
  • 100 YEAR WARRANTY – We are so confident in the quality of our Mountainback designs, we back them with a 100-Year Warranty. Our company motto is “They’ll Fight Over It When You’re Dead”. And they will probably fight while you’re still alive. When you pass this on, they’ll be taken care of under our warranty too.
