Would a satchel be considered a "murse"?
I don’t think so. Surely a satchel was first a ‘unisex’ work bag for transporting books to school, luggage and mail on horseback etc. Mind you if it’s tiny and only good for carrying a wallet and a phone........

RED CANOE B-17 75th Anniversary Kit Bag.










Not very big like an original kit bag, nice size for a weekend trip out of town for a couple of days or on vacation.
Love it, think after washing will look even better.

lately got some new bags/satchels comin' in

paperboys bag in pretty good condition - got it via Thailand (once in a while vintage US garment and gear Pops up at Thai EBAY Dealers - seems they hoard stuff of redcross aid campaigns)



size is exactly what you Need for your Laptop and some booklets

another one which is made outta concrete-bag/sack off a "3rd world store"
nicely handcraftet complete with liner and 2 inner pockets




and another one which i got almost 12 years ago is the BELSTAFF (think the Name is "colonial bag")

Some more photos Thomas. I have 3 in various condition. The cheapest i paid was £5. New ones in unissued condition range from £25-£45
As you can see from the photos below, i can fit a 1 litre Nalgene bottle in one internal pocket. In the other an aluminium sandwich tin or a good bit of other stuff. And a mobile and wallet. All you need !
Beware the Indiam made ones that have an eyelet to close the bag. Go for the British made ones with 2 press studs like mine below
Here’s a nice
Thomas, i’ve PM’d you

Nice little piece of kit. I think you might like the WWII US Gas Mask bags as well. When I was a kid we used to buy them at Army and Navy surplus stores for 2 or 3 dollars and use the as school bags to carry our books in.
Only took one and it would last forever . I’ll see if I can find a picture of one.
