Campaign Waxed Canvas Messenger Bag

The messenger bag isn't a new concept. Its roots date all the way back to ancient Greece, if not before. The messenger bags of today vary and tend toward a deficiency in construction, being built for price rather than satisfaction.

Our updated Messenger Bag? We began with premium full-grain vegetable tanned US steerhide leather and durable 18 oz weather-resistant waxed canvas, offering a robust shield against abrasion and the elements. Two glued, stitched and riveted shoulder strap attachment points ensure a sturdy and comfortable carry. Lined with military grade 430D nylon fabric to protect the contents.

Will it take a beating? Absolutely. A killer combination of looks and functionality.

  • Large exterior rear pocket w/ magnet closure and zipper feature to slip over and secure to your roller bag handle (for when you're dashing through airports)
  • Front flap has a secure magnet closure and 5" zippered pocket inside to hold receipts, passport, tickets, cords, etc
  • Padded separate laptop sections holds up to a 15" screen size laptop
  • Spacious interior accommodates your daily carry including documents, charging adapter, headphones, accessories, etc.
  • Multiple pockets for business cards, smartphone, charger, mini tablet (ex. Fire reader, iPad mini), pens / pencils, etc
  • Super-comfortable adjustable shoulder strap with full-grain leather shoulder pad
  • Interior key strap
  • Mission Mercantile Lifetime Promise
  • 30 day return policy

    Fine and Functional Craftsmanship

    As expected, the craftsmanship is excellent. After decades of using briefcases made of Cordura fabric it is refreshing to now use a bag made of high quality canvas and leather. The simple fold over design with magnetic clasp accommodates a less business and more adventurous lifestyle yet still provides padded protection for a notebook computer, IPad, e-book reader, or digital journal. There are several convenient zipper pockets, pouches and pen loops useful for storing a variety of tools such as pens, a calculator, and business or credit cards. The leather key chain is a clever feature. I’ve paired it with a matching small accessory bag to store cables/power sources in a handy organized manner. It is evident a lot of thought went into this messenger bag and I look forward to many good years of use. I am very pleased with the products and attention to customer satisfaction of this company.

    Great Product

    Lori called to to help me get the product asap as it was a gift. This company understands customer service and does it well. Ask for Lori if you need help. She is great.

    This is a great bag! It is considerably more solid than I expected. The leather is thick and a bit stiff, which will require a little break in, but provide years of use. The leather detailing is in all the right places to support the heavy canvas duck. The heavy metal zippers are very solid and function well. The lining is top notch and cleanly done. It holds more than I thought it would from the online description.

    One Happy Graduate!

    Searched all over for a bag to gift our graduate starting his freshman year of college. His only request was that it be "cooler than a backpack and not all leather". Surprised him by choosing to have it personalized with his initials and upon receiving his bag, he said, "Awesome! This is cooler than I expected!" Very pleased he loves it! Going to order another for his younger brother because he's definitely going to want one like it. Thank you for the careful packaging and the personal note. It made our first Mission Mercantile shopping experience even more special.

    Fantastic Quality

    This bag is fantastic. I've been using it as my only work bag for about a year now. I moved into this one from two Coach laptop bags that come nowhere near this one as far as quality of production is concerned. The canvas is super tough and has held up amazingly. There's not even a scratch on this bad boy after it's been in a tougher working environment than most laptop bags. It's just big enough to carry everything I need including my Macbook Pro. I think this bag really bridges the gap well between masculine ruggedness and sophistication, it can be carried with pride to the job site or the board room and that works very well for my sense of style. All the hardware is top notch, heavy duty brass everywhere and the leather has held up great as well. The value for the price is simply unmatched with Mission Mercantile, I'll be grabbing something else soon just to try it but this bag will last for decades to come. Thanks guys!


    Top Notch Bag

    Just received the bag today and I am very impressed with the materials used (solid brass hardware, heavy duty waxed canvas, YKK zippers, and vegetable tanned full grain leather) and also its bomb proof construction. I don't think I will use it as a EDC as it is quite heavy. But, it can qualify as a briefcase for work for sure!
