MadeByGrandad Messenger Satchels
Messengers come in several sizes with a variety of options. All are made to order so you get to make some choices about size, internal layout, left-handed/right-handed and, of course, fabrics.
Like all MadeByGrandad products, the bags are hard-wearing and impecably finished as only a hand-made can be.
This MadeByGrandad Slim Messenger Satchel is custom-made to carry your iPad (or other tablet) conveniently and safely, along with all your other necessities - phone, eReader, wallet, glasses etc.
This very special version is made from genuine Harris Tweed: 100% pure virgin wool, dyed, spun and finished in the Outer Hebrides and hand woven by weavers at their homes on the Isle of Lewis. Each case is identified with the official Harris Tweed trade mark of the orb and Maltese Cross.
It is a little 'thinner' and 'narrower' than some of the other MadeByGrandad satchels. It is still plenty big enough to carry a tablet and the usual essentials but not a full size or Micro 4/3 DSLR.
Your tablet has its own padded compartment and there are slots to hold your phone and pens and bits and pieces. A captive lobster-claw clasp looks after your keys and a small pouch prevents those keys from rattling on other contents. Two inside pockets with zip closures look after your valuables - a third zip pocket on the outside is securely positioned at the back.
Finally a zip under the flap encloses the entire inner contents for total peace of mind (this bag is NOT pick-pocket friendly).
Each bag is custom-made to your specification - you have full control over the way the zips pull, the layout of the internal pockets etc. Whether you are right or left-handed or just plain fussy - I will make sure your bag works for you!
Everything is gently padded with synthetic fleece to protect your technology - an extra thickness of fleece in the base of the bag gives added protection against accidents. Outer fabrics are treated to be stain-resistant and water-repellent. DOT turn-button fastenings keep everything ultra-secure. Nickel-finish YKK metal zips throughout. A generous adjustable webbing strap (seat-belt grade) allows either shoulder or across-the-body wear. All personally hand-made by me, MadeByGrandad bags are constructed and finished to the highest standard - something to be proud of and to last and last.
