Built out of the “need for gear that out-performs, whilst maintaining a clean aesthetic appropriate for cycling, traveling and the daily routine,” Mission Workshop is a purveyor of American-made bags that are intended to handle a lifetime of abuse. Applying that very ethos to an urbanite favorite, the Californian brand presents the AP Series VX Messenger Bags. Starting with its innovative exterior, the above bags employ a VX Cordura fabric that incorporates three layers of material into one exceptionally durable and waterproof build. Continuing on, the AP Series features an Arkiv closure system that can either be rolled down or “flapped down” in a more traditional manner. Each bag also includes quick-access outboard pockets, internal zippered pockets, custom aluminum strap hardware, and a detachable cross-chest stabilizer. Complete with a lifetime warranty, the AP Series VX Messenger Bags are currently available here in various sizes with prices starting at $249 USD.
