Several years ago I order... Review by steve wilson
Several years ago I ordered a courier bag and when it came I found it to be much larger than I thought it would be, so I returned it and bought a dispatch bag which I have happily carried almost every day since. Sometimes though I needed just a little more room so I again ordered a courier bag (with stabilizer strap) and have found it to be so much more comfortable than the dispatch because with the same amount of guy stuff it wraps around the back better and stays put. So now I have the two best bags made in my opinion and would not want to do without either one. Both highly recommended. Thanks Mr. Subjective. (Posted on 2/24/09)

this bag in pink is the best..I have made it my regular purse and it does not get dirty like I had expected. It is a little difficult to open with one hand because of the velcro but because it is for motorcycling that is totally acceptable. good job. (Posted on 2/5/09)

I've been using the bag for three months now; going to the gym daily, keeping clothing, shoes, towels, and other biking stuff in it.
It's definitely tough, and the hi-viz yellow stands out in traffic.

I like the strap "buckle" adjuster... big and easy to use.

I like the shoulder pad - it works well as a pad, plus the hi-viz yellowness works as an additional bright spot in the front.

I would make one suggestion - add some sort of easier to get to outter pocket; perhaps zippered.

It's a bit of work to un-do both buckles and the long strip of velcro, then dig into the inner pocket to pull out my wallet ( used to get gas or get into works building (key fob in wallet) ), or garage door opener, or bike key. Yes, I know they sell *an additional accessory* that you clip on the strap. However, I think a simple extra exterior compartment (perhaps zippered on top flap) would add an enormous convenience when getting into/out of places quickly.

I have used hi-viz courier 10 months .. Check bag w/sky cap, wear nylon aerostich belt(labels of each are easily removed), Swatch watch and breeze through security. I am not the brightest bulb on the tree. I can spot my hi-viz courier on any baggage carousel.

One man's messenger bag is another man's purse. N/A

This is smart,serious,manly-man,multipurpose tool,spontaneously endorsed by more than one flight crew member. Looks & works great on my "I am Curious Yellow" Honda 599. Bright is Right! (Posted on 8/11/08)
I ride daily and use this... Review by bradford lauer
I ride daily and use this in my commute. The construction of this item is outstanding. The Velcro is very strong and the buckles add to reinforce the flap staying closed. The volume of this bag is what I would call perfect. Not to large not to small. Allows me to carry shoes (10 ½), pants (oversize cargo type), shirt, toiletries, and with the optional Courier Bag Organizer Pockets, ipod, work ids, registration documents, etc all very neatly and organized. With all that in the bag there is still plenty of room for my lunch (about have the volume of a grocery store plastic bag). You still have volume left in the bag for things you may need to get on the way home (about another plastic grocery bag in volume). The bag rides nicely, feels comfortable and rarely shifts while in flight. The strap is easily adjustable allowing for quick adjustment for positioning the bag based on the load. This also allows for positioning the bag so it rests partly on the seat which also helps relive some weight from you shoulder. Well worth the money.

P.S. Holds a 24 12oz cans, but I had to remove them from the case. It will shallow a 12 pack, case and all.

This bag lasted longer than two of my bikes. I still use it to lug things around. Buy it. You can't go wrong. (Posted on 3/7/08)

The Courier bag is just the ticket for my needs. I'm a Kidney Dialysis patient and often ride to Dialysis. I need to carry some bulky items to make the four hour treatment pass comfortably; a neck pillow, small blanket, reading glasses, book, etc. These things are a little too bulky to strap to my KTM, and too big for a tankbag. Courier Bag to the rescue!!

Thanks Aerostitch! (Posted on 2/28/08)

Truly waterproof and rugged -it'll survive everything from a daily commute to airport baggage handlers. (Posted on 11/14/07)

It's just about the best bag out there; mine's been through it all, including rain, massive amounts of mud, baggage handlers, a curious peacock and sheep. Plus it's comfortable to ride with, which is a rarity when you're a woman. (Posted on 11/12/07)
I've had my old gray bag ... Review by charles barker
I've had my old gray bag for 12 or 13 years, I guess. I took my Jack Russell terrier puppy for rides in it and it really is washable. I take it everywhere and stuff it with books all the time since I'm a college professor. I added a velcro bit to hold the pocket closed but that's it. The books have worn the lining and it won't get all clean anymore so I'm ordering a new one but I can't imagine letting go of the old one. A dilemma I wish I had on other products from other vendors. You can't do better. (Posted on 10/2/07)

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.
