Product Details

We made our first messenger bag over 15 years ago. We needed a quick-release buckle for getting a fully loaded bag off quickly. We didn't have money to make our own buckle, so we salvaged a seatbelt buckle from the local auto yard and an icon was born. To maximize durability and weatherproofness, every Citizen is made twice. The inside liner is made with military-grade, 18-oz truck tarpaulin. The outside is made with abrasion-resistant, 1000-denier CORDURA® Brand fabric.


EVA foam-padded shoulder strap with cross-chest load stabilizer for increased rideability

    I wear this bag everyday. I do not have a locker at school so I carry all of my stuff with me. This bag carries 85lb worth of textbooks and binders all day. It is also waterproof and very comfortable. It is extremely well built.

    I would recommend this bag to anyone.
