An urban fashion icon, the classic messenger bag provides functionality, style and universal appeal. Its spacious interior and multiple compartments make it easy to keep your belongings organized and find them quickly.

This Shortie version is 30% smaller in height than the Original Pukka Messenger bag, making a more compact space to stash your stuff while maintaining the classic good looks and functionality of the Original.

This understated model features a waxed canvas base for durability and water resistance, a waxed canvas, wool, denim, corduroy, or canvas upper, a full cotton lining, and full-grain leather straps and tabs. It sports a roomy main compartment with both interior slip and zippered pockets, a strap to attach your keys to, and two large slip pockets on the front for quick access, all secured with a large top flap to keep your stuff secure. The generous 60" full-grain heavy leather adjustable strap and handsome metal hardware makes it an irresistible addition to any ensemble.


Care Instructions

Spot-clean waxed canvas base with damp cloth; spot-clean lining and outer with water and mild detergent. Condition leather annually to maintain suppleness.
Waxed canvas accumulates a worn patina; if desired, use the heat of a hair dryer to restore the canvas to a "newer" look.


Outer: 100% cotton denim or canvas
Outer base: 100% cotton waxed canvas
Lining: 100% cotton
Zipper: Nylon
Hardware: Metal
Strap and tabs: Full-grain leather or cotton webbing

Amazing quality

I am a bit OCD, which leaves me unsettled when I discover flaws in the things I own. I couldn’t find any flaws with this bag so I’m elated. It is extremely well made with very impressive attention to detail. She must be a bit OCD too.
I like that I was able to customize it to perfectly match my needs and taste without any extra charge. That’s pretty amazing!

Thank you, David, for your review, and it was a pleasure to customize your bag exactly to your liking. I'm thrilled that it ticks all the boxes for you, and meets your expectations!
