Description

This bag is made to order.
The dimensions of the final bag will be:
3" deep
11.5" wide
11" high
Several lining options will be emailed to you after your purchase has made.


Sometimes you want a backpack. Sometimes you want a messenger bag. Why buy two bags can do the same thing? This backpack does both. This isn't the largest bag ever made, but for most people who don't carry a laptop, this is all the bag you'll need.

The interior of the bag measures 11.5" wide by 11" high so it can carry books, notebooks, a small lunch, your eReader, or whatever else you carry on your daily commute. There are several sneaky pockets for holding your cell phone, keys, pens, your wallet, work ID tags, and my sneaky magnetic pocket in the flap that safely holds any magnetic card (transit, work ID, etc) so you never have to take it out of your bag, just hold it against the receptacle and carry on with your day.

All of the products used to make this bag are made in the United States. The canvas has been made the same way for more than 100 years using the only environmentally friendly process that is vegan, durable, and not harmful to you or the environment. The fold-top design and the wax applied to the canvas will let you get through most rain storms without a drop affecting the contents of your bag. And because style matters, this fabric will develop a natural patina with age and use that will make it appear more leather-like with time. Unlike leather, it weighs a fraction of the cost.

The rings, and protective strap guards, applied to the back of the bag, permit you to convert this from messenger to backpack by simply unclipping one clip, and reclipping. Running the strap through one ring at the bottom of the bag converts it from a messenger bag to a backpack. The strap is adjustable to fit most shoulders, but if fit is a concern, the strap can be adjusted for no extra charge.

Lining color is completely customizable since this bag will be made after your order is placed. Feel free to send lining color/pattern requests when you place your order, or you will receive an email from me requesting this information. This bag will be made and delivered within 30 days of your order unless you are told otherwise. You will also receive an email from me stating that your bag has shipped. All bags are shipped via USPS Priority Mail. 20% of all purchases are donated to nonprofit organizations.

This item was a gift for my teenage nephew. It’s a very well made kit and appears that it will last a long time. I think it will end up being the perfect size for him. Just enough to hold the essentials. My brother said my nephew kept borrowing his Dopp kit, so I know my brother will enjoy claiming his own bag back.

Should you order something on Poise.cc and decide that you can't continue with the transaction, we will refund the full amount if the error is on our behalf. If the decision to cancel was not due to an error on part, we'll refund your funds, minus any fees charged by Etsy.com.

Poise.cc stands by the quality of workmanship we provide. Poise.cc takes great care in creating bags that are durable, sturdy, and as long lasting as possible.

If I'm unable to re-create your bag I'm happy to discuss other options.

If a rush delivery is required, please state so in your Etsy order notes and provide a phone number or email for us to contact you directly to arrange for UPS or Fed Ex delivery. An extra charge, in the amount of the extra shipping cost, will apply.

International orders are considered. Feel free to contact us to find out how much an item will be to send internationally and the terms for that item will be adjusted for your convenience.You may be responsible for paying duties, taxes, and other customs fees. I am unable to know what these are ahead of time so I can't include them in my purchase price.

Additional policies

Custom orders are fun but do take more time to create. If you see a bag that seems kinda like what you want, but not exactly what you want, let us know and we'll be happy to talk about how to create a bag that suits you.

It's also enjoyable to recreate a bag that you used to have but lost, wore out, had stolen. To the best of our ability, we'll recreate your bag to spec.
