Mission Workshop just made an overly technical, totally waterproof messenger bag

The hand-made Mission Workshop Khyte messenger bag has all the technical properties you could ever hope for in a messenger bag, and probably more. The Khyte is designed to hold all of your important equipment and gear for everyday life, including your laptop, smartphone, clothing, documents, keys., etc, as well as to keep it completely dry and perfectly organised.

Mission Workshop Khyte Messenger Bag


Including two strap options, the Khyte gives you the freedom to carry it as a cross-body messenger, as you would when commuting by bike, or as a shoulder bag. Like all Mission Workshop bags, The Khyte is built with a two-layer weatherproof construction to keep your gear protected and dry. Featuring their high-tenacity (durability & toughness) HT500 double-coated textile and virtually indestructible A&E Permacore thread, the guys at Mission Workshop think they’ve hit gold with the Khyte, going so far as to say it will last you a lifetime.


The pocket config includes a zippered 15″ laptop compartment, a tricot-lined (lightweight knitted nylon fabric) smartphone pocket, a flat pocket for important documents, multiple extra pockets, a key clip, and a large 24-litre main compartment, for storing folded clothes or your lunch.

For added customization, the front is equipped with three Arkiv rails for attaching accessories, including the new zippered tech accessory built especially for the Khyte, designed to hold items such as chargers, cords, pens, business cards, hopes, dreams, etc.


Mission Workshop have partnered with Fidlock to add magnetic V-Buckles.

Pricing & Availability

As you might expect for such a highly engineered technical messenger bag, it’s nae cheap. That said, we believe you definitely get what you pay for with these sorts of things, and Mission Workshop says the Khyte is “guaranteed forever”. In that case, £285 ($335) seems like a reasonable investment.


The Khyte is available now in six colorways; Black, Gray, Olive, Navy, Brown & Black Camo.

Mission Workshop also offers a tech case, a vertical zippered pocket, a utility pocket, a horizontal zip, and a tool roll as additional accessories designed to work with your Khyte.mission-workshop-messenger-bag

I’m not sure why people and brand keep using the term “messenger bag” when 99.99% of the messengers are using backpacks.

Because those are messenger packs. These are mess bags

I’ve been using my Mission Workshop Rummy daily for the past 10 years, and it’s still good as new. Definitely worth the price.
