Dakota Leather U.S. Postal Messenger Mail Bag

No. BAG-013-DB

  • Owners Russell, Waddell, and Majors started the Pony Express in April 1860. It operated for only 19 months, folded as much as $200,000 in the hole, and set a new standard for high-speed mail delivery in the West. The service and its riders became the stuff of legend. To keep weight at a minimum, most of the riders were 20-yr-old wiry men. And their specially designed roomy saddlebag was known as a “mochila,” Spanish for knapsack. At relief stations, the mochila could be grabbed off one mount and thrown over the next in less than two minutes.

    We designed our top grain leather Postal Messenger Mail Bag with these same goals in mind: provide ample interior space (large inner compartment and one divider for your laptop and gear, plus plus two additional pocket slots for everything else), and keep the weight to a minimum should you need to change planes, trains, taxis, or even your mind in a couple of minutes. Now whether or not you become “the stuff of legend,” well, that’s up to you.
