The 1951 Messenger Duffle

Item #: 7125

This is our take on the classic military duffle brought up to date with a messenger style side opening for easy access. A large interior pocket keeps the small stuff secure while the rounded 12” gusset insures room for a day’s essentials or a weekend’s worth of utility. Convenient gusset handles at each end, a top brief handle and an adjustable shoulder strap makes it easy to carry.

The 1951 Collection

Graf Lantz is fascinated with the exploration of historically recognized materials and how we can utilize them in contemporary design. We also love happy accidents - like the one that brought us to an abandoned warehouse in Downtown LA where we happened upon a long forgotten stash of rare 6” military webbing with its original tags showing production on Feb 27, 1951.

Graf Lantz is pleased to introduce our limited “1951” collection. It demonstrates our love for mixing past and present, with style and utility. Material that waited patiently for 70 years becoming a tool for life at modern speed is the core of our philosophy that bags are beautiful tools.

Unfortunately, we have only enough material for 10 bags each in four styles: the Brief, the Messenger-duffle, the Carrier and the Traveler.
