The Flat Top messenger and trip planning bag (named after Flat Top Mountain - here by the Blue Ridge Mountains) is a streamlined but rugged alternative to your typical messenger bag - and works perfectly as a trip planning bag; designed to hold 4 to 7 maps, atlases or Delorme gazetteers (depending on the thickness of each). The Flat Top serves as a simple every day carry messenger and is perfect as a trip planning bag out in the wild on your next overlanding expedition.
Made of mil-spec quality 500D nylon cordura and lined with a waterproof truck tarp (vinyl-coated polyester), it features Velcro brand hook and loop panels for customizing with ID panels, morale patches, or additional select BROG pouches. It also comes with an adjustable shoulder strap with a leather pad for comfort and timeless styling.
This bag is a part of our EDC-X* line of dual-purpose bags designed for both everyday carry and expedition travel. Built with high endurance military-grade materials, and crafted in Bedford, Virginia, USA - it comes with our ‘Blue Ridge Built’ Rugged Lifetime Warranty.
Available in Cobalt Blue, Black, Coyote, and at times Merlot (red).
