Mission Workshops: The Shed

This has stirred some talk around the interwebs.... Can it be done? Rolltop Messenger bag? How will it hold up to a daily commuter? Keep your eyes peeled to this blog for a review. I plan on putting it to the test.

Mission Workshop Introduces the “Shed”
A Rolltop Messenger Bag

Mission Workshop is a San Francisco based company located in the heart of the Mission District. With over 15 years experience designing and manufacturing bags, packs and clothing, Mission Workshop is proud to introduce “the Shed”, the first roll-top messenger bag.

The Shed’s flap can be closed and buckled in a traditional manner or rolled to create a watertight closure that allows easy access to outside cargo compartments. Additional features include a zippered compartment perfect for laptops, a fully padded reversible shoulder strap with accessory attachment points and anodized aluminum buckles that allow for simple single-handed adjustment.

Coming in at just over 2,150 cubic inches or 8 gallons, the Shed is perfectly suited for daily use while still providing plenty of room for an occasional cargo run. Bottom line, The Shed is lightweight, indestructible and is the perfect companion for navigating the busy streets.

Manufactured in the USA with a lifetime warrantee.
