The 215 Strap system features an integrated shoulder pad that incorporates adjustment at the center of the chest via a 2-inch nickel plated buckle. D-rings on the buckle facilitate easy tightening/loosening of the strap. This is by far our most popular strap option, due to the overall durability of the metal hardware. The 215 strap is an upgrade available for all single strap bags.
These run across the base of the bag and allow you to easily adjust the depth of the bottom of the bag by pulling on d-rings. Standard on our X-Large Messenger, Midpack EX, Flight Pack EX, and Megapack.
This accent adds a subtle reflective line to the base seam of your bag. In daylight it looks like a simple silver contour and at night it will reflect a sharp line of light.
For messenger bags with 215 straps, the standard is a nickel plated metal buckle. For quick-release options we have Austrialpin's highly acclaimed Cobra GT military-grade polymer buckles.
Our classic strap setup features nice, thick webbing, with both edges covered with trim for comfort and ease of adjustment. Nickel-plated hardware allows for off-the-hip adjustment. This is the default strap for all of our single strap bags, and although these days most people opt for the upgrade to our newer, padded 215 strap, old-school types still appreciate the incredible versatility of our original strap.
The divider is a fabric panel that splits the inside of the bag in half lengthwise. Below you can see the divider, which has trimmed edges (red in this case) on the top and bottom. Attached at the bottom as well as the two side seams of the bag, it can be easily pushed to the back wall of the bag to eliminate any loss of volume should you not need it at any particular time. The divider is an available option on Small through XL Messengers.
The bottom of the bag usually takes the most abuse, so it makes sense to add reinforcement there. We include this for every single bag that comes off of a R.E.load sewing machine; stitching an extra layer of material to the base of the bag so you won't have to worry. Choose from either Codura® or extra-tough Ballistic Nylon material.
A webbing handle at the top of the bag. We also run 2" wide webbing across the length of the bag to help the top keep shape when the handle is being used. The handle is optional for Messenger bags and comes standard on all of our Midpacks, Flight Packs, Rucksacks, C-Series, and Megapacks models.
Sitting on the inside front wall, the internal organizer features subdivisions for smaller items, velcro® closure, and multiple pen slots. The size of your organizer pocket will scale with the overall size of your bag.
Adds a divider with pen slots inside the outside pocket. Available for Midpacks, Flight Packs, and Megapacks.
The rear inside pocket spans the entire width of the back inside wall of the bag, and features full-length Velcro® closure. Great for storing laptops! Available on all models of bags with the exception of the Mini Messeneger.
When you choose to Build Your Own Messenger, you can select either left or right shoulder orientation. Bags from the "In the Shop" section are left shoulder unless otherwise indicated.
Available for all Midpacks, Flight Packs, and Megapacks. Two side pockets, with mesh drainage. Great for bottles, U-locks, and other small cargo.
Most of the time, the heavyweight Velcro® on the flap will be enough to keep your bag closed, so you can just keep your flap closure straps buckled up in these instead of letting them hang down below the bag. These are included on every bag in our lineup. By the way, all of our plastic hardware is made by YKK® or National Molding®.
Also known as an "anti-sway strap". This runs from the bottom corner of the bag up to a sliding quick release clip on the main strap, and will eliminate any side-to-side movement of the bag while it's on your back. Can also just be run straight across the waist to add support for heavy loads, or even in triple duty as an extender strap to carry oversized cargo. Waist / sternum strap comes standard on all single strap bags.
For those that choose to wear their bags loosely around the body or just off of one shoulder, the casual strap is a nice, simple, and soft alternative to our more technical straps. Features supple seat belt webbing and easy slide adjustment.
This feature gives you a set of 3 open pockets on the front internal face of the bag.Available on Small through XL Messengers.
