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 in our UK Factory by Product Designer Gemma, 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.
