Details

The most versatile over-the-shoulder bag that can be used on a bike. You’ll love it for its size and fit. Triangular in cross-section, messenger bags wrap around your back and stay in position when riding. The original ‘Courier’ size holds a small briefcase, a few magazines and some files…plus a tablet and notebook computer…with room to spare.
All sizes are constructed of super-strong1000D PU-backed Cordura nylon, with a seamless bottom for maximum strength and durability. All also feature waterproofness, simple functional beauty and long-wearing qualities, combined with a bright yellow reinforced PVC waterproof inner lining. Also inside is a usefully-sized pocket (two on the Parcel size) and “clip-on” key loop. They quickly become soft, supple and feel like an old favorite as soon as you strap it on.
After long use they’ll develop a uniquely beautiful 'experienced' patina that reflects your individual patterns of use and wear. This bag's appearance becomes uniquely yours, and its looks continue to improve with use.
The 2” military-spec nylon shoulder strap adjusts quickly and easily with a cam lock buckle for a secure, comfortable all-day fit. An oversize, removable, load-spreading shoulder pad (in color-matching 1000D Cordura, with a grippy Ultrasude surface) provides all-day carrying comfort (this pad optional on the ‘Letter’ size).
The large flap closes with a wide strip of hook and loop as well as adjustable side-release buckles to accommodate small or large loads. There's also a handy carrying handle on the top center that's way more everyday-useful than it looks. And visibility is assured with a wide strip of 3M Scotchlite™ reflective running across the flap. These bags are as simple to put on as a guitar, and easier to learn. Red, black, grey, hi-viz lime yellow, or blue (or limited edition pink in letter, dispatch, and courier sizes only).
Four sizes: Letter (9” Height × 3.75” Width × 9” Base Length / 12” Top Length), Dispatch (12” Height × 7” Width × 12” Base Length / 18” Top Length), Courier (12” Height × 7” Width × 18” Base Length / 23” Top Length), Parcel (14” Height × 9” Width × 18” Base Length / 26” Top Length).

Our favorite Messenger bag, too...

A Mr. Subjective History on Aerostich Messenger Bags

The Aerostich messenger bags are one of my most-favorite Aerostich products. We have been making them for over twenty five years, and they differ substantially from all of the other kinds of similar bags. Essentially, ours are a lot heavier-duty...

I like messenger bags so much because they are so easy to use for urban and utility motorcycle riding. They go on-and-off quick and are versatile. One of these bags hangs empty, near my riding gear so I can grab it whenever the destination involves picking up something, or when I need to carry something fast, without using bungees. Many of our customers use them for their routine daily commute, too. Messenger bags are a key technology for motorcycling personal mobility…An invaluable tool.

Our bags were the first ones ever made of a synthetic material (Cordura Nylon and reinforced vinyl). When we began, there were two or three others made of coarse canvas. Ours was also the first courier bag to employ Velcro (hook&loop) anywhere, and to have any 3M Scotchlight reflective, and to have a handle on the flap, and to use ITW Fastex side-release buckles. What was available elsewhere was crude -- bags made in small numbers in cities like New York, mainly for working bicycle couriers.

About a year after introducing Aerostich Messenger Bags, I remember being at the Motorcycle Dealernews trade show standing before Motorcyclist Magazine Editor-in-Chief Mitch Boehm, and several other editors, all of us in a small conference room in one of the hotels there,…giving a presentation. And the internet was years in the future still.

“The daypack is dead!” I began, trying to sound as declarative as possible. “The era of the messenger bag is now beginning.” I then explained why these still largely-unknown types of bags were so great for motorcyclists. And why they’d rule in the future. And why the Aerostich courier bags were made they way they were. It felt as though we were pioneering something entirely new.

A few years after we started making Messenger bags, other companies like Timbuktu (and many others) were started, and they made lighter-weight versions of messenger bags a common college bookstore commodity. About a decade later Chrome -- another company – added some contemporary hipster style and an automobile seat-belt buckle to the shoulder strap. And today there are countless other varieties from dozens of companies.

But the Aerostich messenger bag line (by size: 'letter', 'dispatch', 'courier', and 'parcel') remains the real-deal and ‘the original’ in terms of function, utility and durability. They are still the very best of this kind of bag available anywhere.

Recently we introduced a wax cotton variation in several colors. And a few years ago we added pink to the available colors of the Cordura models, and developed an optional internal organizer pocket system (available for the three larger sized bags).

Many specific patterning and stitching details set ours apart from the others. (One example - the lid-edge is turned and then hand topstitched. This is how a button-down shirt collar is made. It's neater, stronger and more expensive to do it this way. It makes a better flap. Almost everyone else's bags use cheaper machine-bound edging.)

Lastly, a special feature of our bags that I think is pretty cool is that for over fifteen years Aerostich messenger bags have been made by one individual here at Aerostich. And this person is a life-long motorcycle rider. During the years he's been employed here he's owned three or four different bikes. Recently he’s been riding a black Kawasaki Concourse. And he’s already been to North Carolina to visit his daughter and grandchildren on it a few times.

When you buy an Aerostich messenger bag, you are getting a hand-made classic American product, and an incredibly tough, practical, good bag.
