This is the ITS Discreet Messenger Bag, released today. ITS makes it clear they strive to provide “…exclusive merchandise, equipment and hard to find tactical gear.” All of their nylon gear is sewn by hand here in the US.


They tell us they are combining all they've ever learned and packaging it into a single load carriage solution that is, as they say, “…one of the most rugged, dependable and modular messenger bags ever created.”


Here's what they have to say about it:

We went back to the drawing board to create our modularity and succeeded in increasing the versatility of what the market has to offer. By combining the bag's four expandable interior SnapPockets™ with our optional ITS Zip Bags, we’ve developed a way to easily swap the contents of what you carry, based on the inevitability of your changing requirements. The side SnapPockets™ are perfect for a Nalgene or similar sized water bottles as well.

Our Zip Bags can fit anything from the cables you need to power your devices, to first aid or trauma equipment needed to stay in the fight.

In addition, the loop Velcro-lined main interior facilitates adding any Velcro-backed accessory, including the optional ITS Tech Sleeve for padded protection of laptops and tablets, the optional ITS Holster Insert for discreet off-body cary of a sidearm and spare magazine, or the optional ITS Shock Cord Insert for accessories.

Genuine Martexin Weather Resistant Waxed Canvas and a contrasting nylon pack-cloth interior is used throughout the bag and the pass through zipper in the front flap allows quick access to the interior. True to form, we’ve also included a hidden pocket, concealed by a front flap that can be tucked into the hidden pocket, exposing loop Velcro for identification if desired.

Each bag is handmade in Texas using 100% U.S. Materials.

*Martexin Waxed Canvas will show signs of distressing, this is a natural feature of the material and does not affect the integrity of the fabric. We also feel this adds to the “discreet” nature of the bag.
*ITS Zip Bags, Tech Sleeve, Holster Insert and Shock Cord are available to purchase separately and do not come included with the purchase of an ITS Discreet Messenger Bag.
