Pink and Black Messenger Bag

Black Star Bags


Originally designed for the bicycle courier, messenger bags give you fast and easy access to your load when you're riding or on the go. Our waterproof messenger bags are handmade using Cordura, heavyweight reinforced vinyl, and ballistic nylon. These bags are a comfortable alternative to standard double-strap backpacks bags because they ride high on your back distributing weight evenly, minimizing lower back pain, and reducing blind spots. The adjustable straps and a slightly larger front flap allow for a generous volume increase. This provides a great way to carry a yoga mat, skate/snowboard, or other oddly shaped loads. The light loop and reflective strip keep you safe and visible in any type of weather. For an additional $20 you can add a laptop divider – contact us for more custom options!

Black Star Bags are handmade in Portland and fully customizable.

** We offer this bag with either LEFT SHOULDER STRAP or RIGHT SHOULDER STRAP OPTION in both MEDIUM and LARGE SIZES. Please specify which shoulder you prefer to carry your bag on and what size. Generally, most right-handed people carry their bag on the left shoulder and vice versa. **

“What really sets Black Star apart is our design flexibility. We will always make and continue to improve our standard bags but we do a lot of one-off projects too.”
