Barbour’s Wax Leather Mail Bag is made from tough waxed cotton canvas, with fine leather trims and the signature tartan lining. Antique fittings and an adjustable shoulder strap add style and functionality. This Barbour Messenger bag was inspired by all the brave men that ran military coded documents along the front lines of Her Majesties Armed forces during WWI and WWII. With a motorcycle under them providing the speed and agility to traverse the torn apart battle fields of Europe to deliver the most vital military communications that were monumental in the final victory. We salute these brave souls.
