messenger of doom

tactical messenger bag

release year 2012

 The messenger-bag version of our versatile Ditch™ bag can load-out numerous modular containers on the front surface, but keep them hidden/protected under the unassuming flap. The flap compresses bulk with over-sized lock-buckle-straps (which are also removable from the bag). The flap itself can be removed in a few seconds (it is mounted on the rear with an ingenious flat-lock system). You can also change flap colors with aftermarket flap-purchases. The flap has a large loop-fastener area which also fits our available i.d. window patch. The patch can be secured to the flap w/ our Civilian® Rewind™ cable gear retractor. The MOD™ also now features a luggage-handle velcro/webbing mount on the back for convenient airport travel and a direct access flap zipper (you don't have to open the buckles to get to the main bay area.)

 PLEASE NOTE: As of 2012, the MOD™ no longer comes with a shoulder pad and stabilizer strap (available as options.)

Exactly what I was looking for Review by Ken
For some time now I have been searching for a good laptop bag with lots of pockets and MOLLE attachment points for adding small exterior pockets. I put two MOLLE pouches inside the main compartment, two iPhone pouches on the front and a Hazard 4 sunglasses pod on the end.

The build quality is amazing and the size is perfect for my 16” laptop and all my accessories. I would highly recommend this bag. Do yourself a favor and buy the optional shoulder strap pad. Makes it very comfortable to carry. (Posted on 12/30/2018)
Great for School tooReview by Nonya
I have several products from Hazard4 and the quality top notch and style is spot on. I got this bag for my son after seeing him struggle with book bags watching them break and need replacement. No more trying to stuff text books into a small space. This bag has a lot of room and is more functional for accessing text books vs digging through an undersized book bag. He loves it and its made his life a lot easier. I will assume this will last him throughout his next journey into college. (Posted on 2/14/2017)
Great Laptop BagReview by JJ
Went from a tablet based to a full sized laptop, so I had to up size my EDC bag.

This fits my Acer Aspire V15 Nitro fine (15.25 actual length) with a little room to spare.

messenger of death Go bagReview by Tom B
I got this bag just before I traveled to India. It is the perfect way to put it to the test. I loved every aspect of it(i'm the guy with the fitted jelly roll in the bag) and got some good responses from my fellow travelers. The bag performed beautifully in a harsh environment (I'm an engineer in the field) and I am inpressed by it's quality and construction. (Posted on 8/7/2013)
Best laptop bag ever!Review by Christopher C.
Hands down the best laptop bag I have ever owned! I held off writing a review until I had a chance to put it to real work. Needless to say I have not been disappointed! It is highly customizable, extremely well built and designed with care & attention to detail. I wish everything I buy today were built with half the care of this bag. Oh yeah, and it looks great too!

MOD- The perfect laptop bagReview by Jason J
QUALITY: A high quality, well thought out bag. Heavy bar-tack stitching, top quality cordura and webbing, good buckles and hardware. CAPACITY: Holds far more stuff than you care to put in it and more pockets and MOLLE loops than you could ever imagine. APPEARANCE:It has a sharp business appearance with the cover flap closed but when you open it up it's all tactical. Worth the money and worth the wait! (Posted on 6/28/2011)
Great BagReview by John R
I received this bag a week ago and man it is tops over the previous bag I was using. All the pockets and compartments, there is a place for almost everything and with the MOLLE attachment points you can add almost any type of accessory you want. I wish the velcro part on the front flap ran all the way across the front so I could add more patches, but other then that the only other thing is that I wish it was made in the USA. Great bag!

Best multifunction messenger Review by Jonathan L

I've used a variety of military-oriented and civilian-oriented messengers now, including Eagle, Endom, Chrome, and RELoad. The Hazard4 has the best combination of organization, features, functions, and fit. The zipper-closed top flap is incredibly useful and the best part is the flap folds and stows when you don't need it! Highly recommended. My only wish is that you could've had a run made in the U.S.! Thanks for a great bag. (Posted on 3/7/2011)

Any recommendations on washing this bag?

Since the MOD has rubber material and plastic, we would not advise trying to wash it in a washing machine since this would damage the bag and your washing machine. The best option would be to just use detergent or cleaner in a spray bottle, water, and a rag/bristle brush to scrub the exterior.

Thank you for contacting us.

Hi , can excess your pens , notebooks , items like that without having to fully unzip the admin flap? Also will the bag stand up with admin flap down
Depending on the size of your hands and how much of the admin flap you've unzipped, you should be able to access your pens. notebooks and other items without having to full unzip it. The bag is able to stand with the admin flap when either empty or filled. Hope this helps! Thank you for your question.

When the maximum size laptop specs are given, is it the Diagonally or width? I have a 17 inch HP Specter but it is 14 1/4 inches wide. Thanks!
Hello. When we give laptop sizes, we are referring to the diagonal length which is typically how laptops (and most screens) are measured. For your reference, the main compartment is ~16.9" L x 12.2" W x 4.7" D (43 x 31 x 12 cm), and the back compartment is ~16.5” L x 11.4” W x .8” D (42 x 29 x 2 cm) - if you'd like to double-check if the full dimensions of something will fit. We hope this info helps!
