Which Pro Bag Is Right For You?


When you’re out there hitting the pavement, day after day, you need a bag that will stand the test of time. Our pro bags are made to do just that—keep your cargo safe all day long. Whether you’re a professional courier or a daily commuter, we’ve got the pro bag for you. Check out this breakdown of our pro messenger bags, backpacks, and more to get started.

SLING-STYLE PRO MESSENGER BAGS

Berlin

Our largest messenger bag was designed for the pros by the pros. We spent 12 months working with a team of professional bike messengers to design one of the best messenger bags we’ve ever made. The crossbody design easily swings around so you can access inside, plus there’s a padded shoulder strap with side compression straps for added comfort. Designed to take on big jobs and large deliveries, this bag can do it all.

Citizen Messenger Bag 

The bag that started it all. Originally made from salvaged seat belt buckles that were cut out of junkyard cars, the Citizen now is our signature sling bag. This medium-sized messenger bag is great for basic hauls and everyday commutes. It offers the same durability as our Berlin bag, just pared back to the essentials you’ll actually use. The strap features easy swing-around access to get inside the bag while you’re wearing it. Inside, we used a floating tarp bucket liner to help you keep gear dry and separate from any wet items. The size makes it carry-on friendly, so you can take this bag from your workday commute, to the airport, and beyond. Plus, it’s got our iconic quick-release seat belt buckle with a bottle opener—a great party trick at happy hour!
