The Solo is one of Jack Stillman's original designs. It relishes its role as an outdoors bag. 16oz Beeswaxed cotton canvas is probably the peak when it comes to thick skin and the brass and leather a real. 


The Solo is made to look stylish in its serious role as porter for your necessary stuff. It also has some considerable street cred when you take into account the pinch flap design that seals the interior off to the environment while granting instant access to your gear. 

At just 34cm wide at the base, the Solo Messenger Bag is not a huge bag, but it’s the perfect size for motorcycles riders, commuters or day travellers who want to carry a few essentials and a small bottle of water. 

This smart-looking bag is handmade in small batches in our own workshop. The double front external pockets allow for some intelligent organisation. Inside you are also treated to an internal zippered valuables pocket plus easy grab partitions for glasses, chargers etc.

We have upgraded the Solo at no extra cost by adding an enhanced cotton webbing and D-ring system on the back. This makes the NEW Solo easier to attach to a motorcycle or bicycle as a saddle bag and also more compatible with our T-Brace stabiliser. The NEW version has 2 D-rings to utilise our K80 and K70 straps for attachment. It also has a single real-brass D-ring on the bottom to attach the T-Brace or an anchor when used as a saddle bag. OLD style has no D-Rings on the bottom. 


We make small batches of our own bags in-house. So we are very confident in how they are put together and the materials we carefully source. This bag comes with a 10-year warranty covering failures in materials and workmanship. Please read here for more information.

Handy as

Still using it, still getting used to it. The only improvement I’d like to see that the leather straps be made out of a little heavier leather and maybe the flip lid could have a backbone added to it along with a hand carry handle maybe. I might see a boot maker to see if they can help with the mods.otherwise hope to get many years from it. The wife is keen on looking at grabbing a couple of your poncho’s in due course so the discount offer is very much appreciated

Oozes quality and class

I love this bag, I use it daily for work. It just oozes quality and class. The materials are high end, nothing feel cheap or flimsy. The details of the design are brilliant from the wallet and phone pouches, to the orange easy view interior which makes it so easy to see what you want to get out. Zips and clips are strong construction too. Could not be happier with my Soli Messenger bag
