City dwellers, urban explorers, bicyclists, college grads – this is your messenger bag.
Earlier this year we brought to you the best all-terrain bag specially made for motorcyclists. Now we shifted gears (no pun intended) to bring you a remarkably functional and truly all-in-one laptop messenger bag made for city travelers, bicyclists and everyday urban explorers.
You may ask, how is this bag different from every other messenger bag out there? What makes it so unique? The difference is literally felt in your hand – each bag is meticulously handcrafted, mindfully designed, sustainably made with 100% natural materials and never has that plastic feel of mass-produced products. Bogdan, owner and designer of Tram 21, and his small team of expert craftsmen and craftswomen understand the value of holding in your hands something exquisite that answers your needs without creating false ones.
For travelers with style and go-getters on the move, this messenger bag will give you more confidence while providing the durability and functionality you need to travel with confidence. Ideal for college graduates, city dwellers, bicyclists, motorcyclists and urban explorers, this bag is made for travelers – let me show you.
Made from 100% water-resistant Halley Stevenson’s waxed cotton, specially made in the U.K., and water repellant leather, this handcrafted bag can withstand rainy days, cold winters, hot summers and other inclement weather, all the while keeping you laptop, tablet, electronic cords, books, clothing all safe from the elements – making it a truly every day bag for city travelers. The British waxed cotton has been tested in the harshest industries since the 19th century, which is why it was the clear material of choice for the bag’s exterior. And just like the thick and durable saddle leather for the flap and accented in key strategic areas all around the bag, the leather ages in an extraordinary manner that is guaranteed to stay strong and resilient the more you use it.
No detail was overlooked with this smartly designed messenger bag and it has a pocket to organize everything you may need, including four internal slip pockets, two external side zip pocket and large main compartment with high quality rugged metal zipper for secure closure to safely store your laptop and spacious enough to hold books, notebooks, electronic cords, headphones and other accessories. It comes in two sizes: 11.8” x 14.5” x 4.3” (30cm x 37 cm x 11cm) for 15” laptops and 13” x 16.14” x 4.3” (33cm x 41cm x 11cm) for 17” laptops, and three distinct colors: green, dark chocolate and sandstone.
But there’s more to the bag than just its great vintage look. If you’re a bicyclist or motorcyclist, you know all too well the struggle of riding with a messenger bag because it always slips around your back and redistributes weight too much on side, which makes it very uncomfortable, and even dangerous, to ride. The answer? The “Cyclist’s Strap.” A small discreet leather strap located on the side of the bag, which easily clips to you belt loop and effectively prevents your bag from annoyingly sliding down your back as you ride. You can secure the messenger bag in an instant with one hand in less than a second and be on your way. I can tell you from experience that this one much-needed feature would have saved me a lot of annoying rides on my motorcycles in the past.
Another important element of the bag consists of the hidden external USB port, so you can easily connect your battery pack inside and charge your phone on the go, even as you’re using it. There’s also an external audio port as well to connect your earphones and listen to your favorite podcasts or music while your phone is safely secured inside your bag. The zip side pocket is perfect for small accessories you want to find a second, including wallet, cash and phone. The leather strap at the back is very convenient for slipping the bag on a rolling suitcase in the airport or at train stations so you can free your shoulders for comfortable travel days.
