The Faraday Messenger Bag is the latest creation from the San Francisco based design team Modern Industry. We’ve featured their work before when they released their first design, the Magnitude Backpack, earlier this year.
All of the designs to come out of Modern Industry are motorcyclist and bicyclist friendly, making them perfect for people like us, they’re also handmade in the USA using 10.10oz Martexin Original Waxed Canvas and Horween vegetable tanned leather.
The Faraday is a convertible of sorts, it can be folded down to “Messenger Bag” size (11.5″ x 15″ x 6″) or folded out to “Tote Bag” size (16″ x 15″ x 6″), both of these sizes can accommodate a 15″ laptop plus all the rest of the gear that doesn’t fit in your pockets.
