Edison A.S. (California, United States)
Easy carry EDC

Well, basically, I bought this bag with the intention to travel with it, and to have my EDC with me when I travel. And for the most part the bag does its job I just wish I had added a pen slot like they do on the bigger bags . Also, I like the sturdiness of the bag and I also like the fact that it’s made in California.

Well made, does the job!

A nice compromise size between my other cross body bags, well made, well designed. My only request would be just an inch more depth, gets a little tight when put in all my kit. That said, will certainly be entering the daily rotation.


Beautifully made and the perfect size for when you don’t need a laptop or bigger tablet. I put my Duo glasses case, iPhone pro Max, smints, keys and wallet in. Great for when you don’t want to stuff your trouser pockets with stuff. Recommended

The Goldilocks bag...not to big, not too small

Got this bag to replace a beloved Hitch Crossbody that developed a zipper problem. Needed an EDC bag that could take an iPad, a very large 'wallet' (a Padded Gear Pouch!), and a few odds and ends, but not the kitchen sink. (Got an Air Porter and an Air Duffle for those days). The Essential Crossbody handles the lighter days without getting in the way (too big) or leaving something behind (too small). It's just the right size. Waxed canvas/leather was icing on the, cake.

Kristian (Auckland, New Zealand)
Essential Crossbody (tall)

Have been looking for an edc small footprint satchel that doesn't make me feel like I'm wearing a 'man-bag'. This bag works well for me in terms of styling and size. I like to carry an MacBook M1 Air with me and I cycle most everywhere. This bag is large enough for that and the few extra items I tend to use. The bag fits snugly to my back so it doesn't move around much when I cycle. It's very comfortable, has a minimalist design with a discrete logo, and build quality materials are reassuring. The only downside is the eyewatering price (I paid in NZ dollars) but I have the bag I've been looking for :)


The Essential Crossbody is available in three sizes to fit Apple's MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iPad Pro with Magic Keyboard, and iPad Mini, and similarly sized devices. Extra pockets carry accessories and other essentials like phone, wallet, keys, and earbuds.

The Essential Crossbody is all about convenience in a small package. Multiple access points and organizational pockets help you find your gear quickly and easily. 


Keep your laptop or tablet in a separate flush pocket within the main compartment. Access and organize frequently-used items  in  two exterior pockets — a secure, zippered one, or in the open front pocket.


The various sizes of the Essential Crossbody Collection each fit a different device you carry with you. However, if you're not carrying around a laptop or tablet, choose the size that best fits your need and stature. 

The small scale of the Compact Size is just right for daily use — at home or on trips.  It's extremely lightweight and keeps your hands free for other activities. Fits an iPad Mini. 


The Medium, Tall, and Ultra Sizes fit various MacBook and iPad sizes. They all highlight the convenience of the organizational pockets — no need to open the bag to access your wallet, keys, and other frequently-accessed items. These are kept in the external pockets for easy and quick retrieval. 


And, an even smaller Crossbody, the iPhone Pouch, fits the iPhone and other similarly-sized phones. 



The Essentials Collection is a line of lightweight bags with a streamlined design, smart detailing, and features that focus on each bag's functional essence. The minimalist design delivers high impact. 


For durability, we use our custom-made abrasion- and water-resistant ballistic nylon which stays looking new for many years. It withstands prolonged sun exposure so your bag will stay looking fresh and new. 


These multi-functional, everyday bags are available as a Duffel, Messenger Bag, Backpack and Crossbody bags.
