Messenger bags have been worn by everyone from Pony Express riders galloping across the American West, to alleycat cycle couriers weaving through city traffic on stripped-down fixies.
But you don’t have to be delivering documents at breakneck speed to wear the Alleycat. Whether it’s carrying your laptop back-sweat-free, throwing over your shoulder for short cycle commutes or stashing in the top of your suitcase/rucksack for travelling, this messenger bag will help you to carry your stuff in impeccable style.
Designed by Machinist Gemma in our on the edge of the Peak District factory, the Alleycat has a number of useful features. The main compartment has a padded divider which neatly fits a 13-inch laptop or an A4 notepad, and there are two more organiser pockets for dividing your bits n pieces, including a key clip.
The back of the Alleycat also has a zipped security pocket which is hidden against your body, and a special sleeve for slotting over suitcase drag-handles when you’re charging through airports.
If you do use your Alleycat for cycle commute cool, there’s a Hypalon attachment point on the back for small bike safety lights and an easy-access water bottle holster. Waxed cotton is a natural, hard-wearing material with a high degree of water resistance.
As with all products made in our UK Factory, the Alleycat comes with a 25 Year Alpine Bond warranty.
