Solo Waxed Canvas Messenger Bag


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.
