Throughout ancient history (and probably yesterday), runners have competed against homing pigeons, smoke signals, and riders on horseback to deliver timely messages ranging from the mundane to the imperative. Long before there were mechanized courier services, foot messengers physically ran (or walked when no one was looking) miles to their destinations. There are still marathons ran today, directly related to actual historical messenger routes, keeping the courier spirit alive.
The Durham Messenger is as time-honored as “the message” it carries with its rich color. Adding modern convenience to a conventional bag, engineered for extreme versatility. Your belongings will be kept safe with the easy zippers and can be easily organized in a variety of gussets, dividers, and stashes. It's so convenient that you're going to use this bag 90% of the time. Plus the leather gets better with time.
With time, the patina will develop on the leather.
It is something unique to natural products – leather gets it, so does wood. If ever there was something as aging gracefully – a patina is a shining (you see the pun?) example of it! Specifications
