Each of our bags is named after a Canadian Mountain, and our Brave Messenger Bag is no exception. There really is a Canadian mountain named "Brave" in Newfoundland. But the name of this bag is much more significant to us, because the credo "Live Bravely" has been the inspiration of every single decision we have made as we built Mountain Messenger Co.
We hope that this handsome bag will serve as a tangible reminder to you to to live bravely every day. This bag is a special addition to our bag line-up, because we are donating the full proceeds of all Brave bags to our Live Bravely Campaign in benefit of the Shriner's Children's Hospital of Canada, to help brave Canadian kids like my niece Elsa, who suffer from bone conditions. This link is the story of Elsa and our Live Bravely campaign. This bag is also one of my absolute favorites.
Our Brave 11" Messenger is as practical as it is handsome. With room for all the essentials including your tablet, the Brave Messenger is a stylish and lighter alternative for traveling business people, and makes an excellent choice for personal airline travel. Features include:
Adjustable shoulder strap for cross body or over the shoulder use
Distinctive vertical configuration is neat and compact
Canvas-lined interior with 2 interior zippered pockets
Exterior buckled pocket will keep personal essentials handy
Brass hardware and rivets

Dimensions: 11" high x 9" wide x 3" deep
Material: Genuine Goat Leather
Our bags are made in a small Indian studio using Indian goat hide leather. Our bags are made of naturally tanned (chemical free) genuine leather and are lined with cotton canvas. All of our hides are oiled, not dyed, which brings out the natural beauty of the leather.
A few things to keep in mind: While we are almost certain that you’ll love your Mountain Messenger Bag, we can’t guarantee that your bag will look exactly like the one shown in our pictures.
Our leather bags are made from un-dyed leather. We are selective about the hides that are used in our bags, but we don’t use dyes to cover the small spots and markings that are natural and authentic.
Goat hides come in a variety of colors and shades. The bag you receive will very likely not be the exact same color as the one shown, and may also combine hides of different shades.
Leather will last for a lifetime. Scratches and snags are unavoidable when our bags are put to good use. Goat hide is soft and very durable, and unlike most leathers, it will actually look even better as it ages! Your bag will develop a beautiful natural patina over time, so don’t be afraid to use it.
Please also note that when you first receive it, your bag will smell of leather – unfortunately, this wonderful smell mostly fades within a few weeks!
