This is what outstanding quality looks like. The handcrafted details on the Commodore Messenger Bag speaks for themselves. Hand finished leather, solid brass hardware and perfect stitching throughout. Take some time to see why this could be the last bag you buy. 


The Commodore, like all Jack Stillman bags is fitted with real working buckles and reinforced anchor points to take a proper load on the sling. The flap is shaped more generously around the top in order to protect the inside of the bag. 

Special features include the unique side pockets which expand into the bag to keep things compact and internal organisation pockets. 

Like most Jack Stillman bags, the Commodore Messenger Bag can also be used as a pannier bag on your motorcycle or bicycle. It's also compatible with our unique T-brace stability harness (sold separately). The bag has various mounting options on the back of the bag. At the top are the double, real brass D-rings. You're also given reinforced side cotton webbing loops and two real brass D-rings on the bottom. 


Jack Stillman specialises in making our range of authentic, heritage luggage, bags and accessories. Our processes and the raw materials we use are unmatched, ensuring anything we offer can be covered by our 10 Year Warranty. All of our gear is made in-house by our own full-time team of specialists. We only use:

  • 100% cotton canvas that has a coating of natural wax to protect it from rainfall and moisture. No plastics here. 
  • Real brass that is 100% recyclable and will never loose its market value.
  • Our leather is genuine, naturally cured Vegetable Tanned Leather that is hand coloured, burnished and edged. 
  • Quality YKK zips that are considered the best in the world. 

All of these materials create a product that you can be sure will stand the test of time and look better with use than it does brand new.

This bag is ready for anything

About a week after receiving this bag (quicker than expected), had to evacuate in the middle of the night from a major wildfire. So no babying of the new pristine thing from the get go, with it being jammed into nooks, thrown amongst our drooly dogs, etc. Talk about a bag that enjoys a beating! Awesome - hands down the best satchel I could find across the internet and more than lives up to expectations.

Awesome man bag

Love it. My daughter reckons I look like Indiana Jones. Built so well. Can’t see how this bag would ever wear out. If it ever did I’d get it repaired because I love it so much.

Tough Beauty

I don’t expect to need another bag - ever. This one is built to last and has all the features you could want and then some. For me, it is a perfect EDC partner and side bag for travel. Quality, durability, and design.
