Ridgeback Motorcycle Messenger - Waxed Canvas - Jack Stillman


Ridgeback Motorcycle Messenger Bag

8 Reviews

The Ridgeback is a back-to-basics shoulder satchel ideally suited to motorcyclists, FIFO workers and outdoors types. It’s minimalist design leaves its spaces open to multiple uses and plenty of space it has. The flap construction creates a discreet but ample opening which protects the inside of the bag from weather and dust while the floor of the bag is a huge 15cm x 38cm. Tonnes of space for a light jacket, lunchbox, camera gear, gloves etc.


All Jack Stillman bags are handmade to order. Please allow 3-5 business days to complete your bag before shipping.

Double Strength

The flap and the base panel are both double layered 16oz heavy beeswaxed, cotton canvas. That’s 32oz’s of scuff and skid protection for your gear inside. It’s also more than adequate water protection that can be re-waxed as often as required to protect your investment and add character too. In fact, like all Jack Stillman bags, the more you use it and maintain it, the more unique it’s going to look over the years to come. 

More Stability?

The Ridgeback has the option to come with the T Brace Stability Strap which locks the bag down to your waist. Especially useful when your are on your motorcycle and you don’t want the bag flapping about as you cruise down the freeway.

Motorcycle Messenger Bag

Entire experience was excellent! I had some questions following placing the order and all were promptly responded to. The bag is an excellent size, appears strong and well made. I’ll be ordering the additional motorcycle strap as the bag is perfect for gym and small shopping runs etc.

Problem Solved

Previously I wrote a negative review based on not getting a response from Jack Stillman to my mail regarding the lack of Tully strap with my Ridgeback Messenger, turns out there was a IT gliche & my mail was not received. After my review Jarrod contacted me, explained the cause (human error, **** happens) & immediately resolved my problem & was even good enough to throw in a little something extra. My confidence is restored & I look forward to many years service from my excellent Jack Stillman purchase.

Thanks Pete! I really appreciate your understanding. Jarrod

Poor Customer Service

I recently ordered a Ridgeback Motorcycle Messenger together with the extra T Brace Stability Strap, unfortunately Tully Shoulder strap as shown above in photos & listed in the specifications did not arrive with my delivery. Jack Stillman claim to attempt to reply to Emails in 12 hours, guess what... after sending a couple of Emails outlining my problem, nobody has contacted me by mail or by phone which they have on my original order. I'd suggest you steer clear of their online ordering & walk into their retail outlets, or just purchase someone elses product.

Hey Pete, Firstly I want to apologise for the fact that you did not receive the Tully Sling. This was human error. Some of my bags are stored without the shoulder strap in case the customer wants to swap. Unfortunately we sent the order without editing it to add the Tully Sling. I apologise and can appreciate that this frustrated you. Peter, your frustration is doubly justified because I have discovered, thanks to you, that the contact form on the webpage, which I assume was what you used, is not working. I am attempting to fix that now. In future please know that we have a contact email address that is provided to you with you order, facebook and messenger services which could be used to contact us. And I will always get back to you within hours. I have never had a situation where I have not personally contacted a customer who has requested help. We have already arranged for your sling to come out to you immediately. I will also include a gift for messing you about as we have. I've sent you my personal email in case you have any other issues.
