Capacity

Size is the most important factor in choosing a bag. Consider what you'll carry on an average day, and also about the most you'd ever need to carry. Our bigger bags compress significantly when they're empty, so there's less of a penalty to sizing up than you might think. See the handy chart for reference.

The Buckle

When we first started building messenger bags over 20 years ago, we needed a tough quick-release buckle to use on our bags. Off-the-shelf options weren't cutting it, so we went to the junkyard, cut a seatbelt buckle out of a salvage car, and our iconic buckle was born. It's durable as hell, easy to open and close even with a heavy load, and it looks great. Plus, you can open a beer with the adjacent slider.
