Commodore Waxed Canvas Messenger



This is what outstanding quality looks like. The handcrafted details on the Commodore Messenger Bag speaks for themselves. Hand finished leather, solid brass hardware and perfect stitching throughout. Take some time to see why this could be the last bag you buy. 

Own your sense of style and brag about your sense of adventure with a bag that speaks volumes for where it is you're going. 


The Commodore Canvas Messenger Bag is a handmade Tour de Force. It's a mid to larger sized messenger bag suitable for work or casual wearing. It has a rugged style to it which suits your adventurous spirit. The Commodore is laptop ready, carrying larger laptops up to 15".

Suited for day-to-day commuting to the office or business that requires a shoulder slung messenger bag/laptop bag. Special features include the unique side pockets which expand into the bag to keep things compact. The Commodore is made from tough 16oz cotton canvas that is naturally protected by beeswax.


The Commodore Messenger Bag has 7 mounting configurations on the back of the bag (9 including the side Brass D-Rings). Each one is reinforced behind the back panel with an added layer of waxed-canvas making these attachment loops and the quick grab handle, very heavy duty. Using these features allows it to be mounted to your motorcycle for use as a soft pannier. NOTE: Fitting is the responsibility of individual bike owners.
