Saddle Messenger Bag Pro

The executive carry-on that goes over your suitcase or over your shoulder.


Two bags in one for the efficient traveler.
  • Strap it onto your upright case for extra capacity
  • Attach the shoulder strap for a messenger bag
  • Premium leather looks at home in airport or boardroom
Leather luggage companion or solo carry-on–the choice is yours!
Let’s face it, when it comes to the airport grind, everyone could use a sidekick. That’s why we designed the Saddle Messenger Pro. It’s two bags in one. First, it fits right over your suitcase giving you more places to stash your things on the go. Just place it over your upright luggage and strap it in place. Then, when you board, unbuckle the bag from your luggage and attach the removable, adjustable shoulder strap. Zip it together, and in seconds you’ve got a messenger bag.

Premium leather makes it easy to go right from your flight to the boardroom.
When you’re traveling for business, you’ve got limited time and space. That’s why we made this carry-on companion do double duty. It keeps everything you need for the meeting and working on the plane, close by. And the premium leather is nice enough to bring right into the meeting with you.

Go smarter with the travel experts at Brookstone.
We have dozens of ways to make travel easier and more efficient, whether you’re traveling across the state or around the world. From luggage and accessories such as our Sidekick Pro, to rechargeable batteries for laptops and smartphones, portable electronics and travel-sized pillows and blankets, we have everything you need to make every trip a good one.

        This is a great bag! It's especially useful at the airport. When the gate agents are particularly strict with carry on policies, the bag avoids the "two pieces of luggage" rule. It also gets the lad off your shoulders. The zipper to combine the two halves are a bit tricky to start, and the pen pockets are a bit short, but other than that its a great bag! There are lots of pockets and compartments to carry everything from your iPad to your passport. The strap is adjustable but would of been better with a strap pad. I love this bag!

        I use it every day. However, within one month the handle straps frayed. I ordered a second unit and within one week one of the handle straps began to fray. Very disappointing weakness for an otherwise excellent quality product. I took the first one to a shoe repair place to re-stitch the straps. But strap material is weak or not well designed.

        Comments about Saddle Messenger Bag Pro:

        I fly every week and this fits easily over my roller bag. Allows me to have what I need in my seat. Be careful of the fray points. Almost lost my entire bag because I didn't see it was so bad. I sew a lot so I just reinforced the fray points and it is as good as new (or better). This bag allows me to be hands free and not have to have a bag over my shoulder. I have never found anything that works as great as this bag.

                Comments about Saddle Messenger Bag Pro:

                For a product that was otherwise high quality, I cannot understand why the design would include such a weak strap at the point where the stress was most likely to happen. Mine has frayed during the first week of use.

                Comments about Saddle Messenger Bag Pro:

                The largest pocket is about an inch too small for a mac book air. Perhaps a redesign could include an extra inch or so in length to make it possible to fit a laptop.

                  Should be deep enough so a standard file folder could fit in without sticking out of the top. It is terrific otherwise

                  Comments about Saddle Messenger Bag Pro:

                  I absolutely love this bag. Bought it for air travel and it has slowly morphed into my daily work bag. One side holds my iPad easily, and the other side (believe it or not) holds my MacBook air. I've stuffed power adapters, USB cables, ear phones,...etc. TONS of stuff and it holds it all quite nicely. It somehow has just the right pocket for everything. A water bottle pocket would be nice, but I still find this bag the best I've ever used for travel. Small size, but holds everything.

                  I make a lot of one, two and three day trips. This bag should be perfect for carrying my tablet, passport, a book or magazine, paperwork and other business essentials.

                  I bought this as a gift for our son who has yet to use it. The appearance is great, leather is very soft and appears to be user friendly - actually saw someone using it on a plane!
