Cool Stuff covers the gamut of everything that is considered cool in terms of gadgets, gizmos and accessories. Mission Workshop are American-made bags designed to take a lifetime of abuse, and on the harsh streets of most major capitals that is just what they will get.
The Californian brand presents the AP Series VX Messenger Bags. The bags are made from an innovative cordura exterior, the bag incorporates three layers of material made into one membrane to create an exceptionally durable and waterproof build to protect both your Airbook and your sandwiches.
The AP Series messenger bags feature the Arkiv® closure system with quick-access outboard pockets, internal zippered pockets, aluminium strap buckles, and a handy detachable cross-chest stabiliser.
The large zippered pockets are designed to take a laptop such as the 15in MacBook Pro (Medium and Large sizes), or the13in MacBook Air, or an iPad. If you really need to carry a lot of stuff with you, opt for The Shed, the 20” x 12” x 6” bag designed to be a mobile office with which you can comfortably cycle or scooter around town. The bags come in a range of colours including blue, red, grey, black, and khaki.
So confident of their quality is Mission Workshop that all their bags carry a lifetime guarantee which covers defects in materials and craftsmanship. The company qualifies this by pointing out that should you choose to drag your bag around behind your car, or carry a bunch of razor sharp machetes with you, that’s on you. They can fix it, but they won’t cover the costs, and they may even go as far as to suggest that you refrain from doing it in future.
Mission Workshop is happy to ship their products to Europe and other parts of the world. Price for their largest bag, The Shed, is US$195.00.
