another bag Review by yeloboomer
OK.. this is the 4th bag we've bought ( I think... might be more ), Dispatch, Courier.... we got'em all. One of the Dispatch bags I've had for years, just went back to have a little repair work on it. Aerostich called me since the repair would be half the price of a new bag. Well... gee, thanks... nice to know, but no way I'm giving up my old bag, fix it please!
The latest purchase was a pink one for Wifey. Now she won't 'borrow' mine and I won't be borrowing her pink one. (Posted on 2/6/12)
How did I live without it Review by Bayou Crier
I've looked at these for years and finally took the plunge and purchased one.
This is more handy than a pocket on a shirt............yeah I use it in the car too. (Posted on 12/13/11)
Great for commuting Review by MotoGirl
I just started using this bag to commute to work and just around town (NYC). It is lightweight, but really holds alot. I purchased the organizer with it, which I recommend as it prevents the smaller items from getting lost in the bottom of the bag. The dispatch bag is great for commuting and is able to hold gym clothes as well as work files, etc. It stays in place when riding and has a very comfortable shoulder pad. I barely felt it. The quality is really excellent and I love that it is made in the USA. (Posted on 10/22/11)
Getting the girl ready to ride Review by Canyon Lake
My wife has the Courier bag in pink and now our 7yo has one herself. It works great when I take her to school on the bike and when she rides the bus. (Posted on 10/10/11)
Tough X10 Review by GottaRideMN
I buy a lot of different things from 'Stich so a few years back when The Boy was once again in need of a bag for school I finally decided to get him a Dispatch bag. See, until then, he always used backpacks those one shoulder things like most of the kids. Problem was; none held up. Last time we even bought a real high end pack but it was falling apart within 5 months. Most were lucky to make it through a quarter. The cause was that the Boy never used his locker and carried all his books and supplies everywhere every day. They all fell apart. The zippers would fail, the books wear through the sides, seams burst and buckles snapped. Yes, he is a one man torture test.
I figured the 'Stich bag would hold up better. Well, it is MUCH better. So far infinitely better. He used it for two years and, other than looking dirty, it is in the same shape as when we bought it. The Boy decided that for his senior year he wanted a new bag. So I bought him a new dispatch that, luckily, came in his school colors (Red and Black). I now use the old one for my school/lunch/everything bag and ride motorcycle every day. Much more comfortable to ride with than a backpack and easier to get on and off; doubly so when wearing an armored jacket. Plus it keeps everything dry.
Made in the USA, much more bang for the buck and looks like it might last forever. Seriously, I'm POed at myself for not getting one sooner. I have other relatives going to school or ride motorcycles; I may have found the perfect gift for them.

Carry With Comfort Review by Dave
I bought this bag to haul my dress shoes and laptop to work but soon found many other uses. When I first got it I thought it looked way too big. Wrong! It holds lots of heavy stuff but, because it rests on the passenger seat, there is no weight on my back. It stays put at speed and doesn't shift around during "spirited" riding. The adjustable strap allows me to adjust it so it is just right for my froward lean whether going freeway fast or sitting more upright in town. It is almost always with me whenever I ride. The quality is typical Aerostich - excellent. And it is made in the USA. I really like that too. (Posted on 6/20/11)
Mine, all mine. Review by Desiree
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. You carry my lunch, my dinner, my clothes and my groceries. My laptop, my skates, my shoes and my wine. You are the perfect size as a carry on bag when I'm forced to use the pressurized tube. You stand out in a crowd of cheaply made off shore junk that falls apart when put to the test. You look so good with my Roadcrafter, and your reflectorized stripe helps keep the cages at bay. You practically purr when I toss the Letter Bag on the other shoulder, thinking how smart you two look together. And best of all, you're pink. And that means the better half will never, ever use you. You are all mine. From one Dispatcher to another, I love you. (Posted on 2/7/11)
exceeded my expectations Review by carenw
I just received my Hi Viz Yellow dispatch bag and was blown away at the quality from the great finishing to the padded shoulder strap. Hi quality and will be used both on and off the bike. Love it! (Posted on 9/27/10)
Excellent purchase Review by Daniel
Needed a more comfortable bag to carry stuff to work in and run small errands. The dispatch bag is better than any backpack I've worn while riding. Very comfortable, plenty of space for my needs. Haven't had any issues with it moving excessively in the wind, either. After riding with it to work I started running all my errands on my motorcycle(except the larger awkward items). One reason why I didn't ride my motorcycle as much as I could have was because of lack of a good carrying bag. Now I can do anything and everything....well, almost anything and everything. Great product. I would recommend it to anyone. (Posted on 9/5/10)
Great bag for carrying stuff around Review by KJ
My fiance just bought this bag for me. He's a motorcycle rider, and I'm his passenger. We both love Aerostich gear, and when I needed a bag to carry stuff in as I walk to the train every day, I knew they would have one for me. I got the limited edition pink bag, and its perfect for me. I can carry my lunch, wallet, books, papers, keys and other stuff in it easily and comfortably. Plus the shoulder pad makes it really comfortable. This is a great gift for women, whether they are riders or not! (Posted on 10/21/09)

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.
