Mission Workshop Mass Transit: ready to roadtrip

While our daily-use backpacks can be put to a lot of different purposes, they’re not always the ideal solution for when we need to head out for a longer trip, or perhaps use something as a secondary bag to our laptop hauler. The Mission Workshop Transit took the classic duffle bag and put a dose of technical work bag aesthetic on it. If that 27L wasn’t quite what you were looking for, perhaps the larger Mission Workshop Mass Transit is where it’s at for you.

If you’re familiar with the original, it looks like the Mission Workshop Mass Transit is going to be familiar to you. It’s 4″ longer, which also translates into a 4L pickup in terms of the volume of stuff it can swallow. So, more room to pack whatever gear and clothes you need for the weekend, plus the ability to be carried on your shoulder, with an optional backpack harness, or in the carrier of your favorite bike.

Here’s how Mission Workshop describes it:

Introducing Mission Workshop’s latest innovation: the Mass Transit Duffle. Evolving from the well-loved original Transit, the Mass Transit takes versatility to the next level, offering a robust design – perfect for transporting gear over greater distances. Whether ​ biking, driving, or catching a flight for a weekend getaway, this duffle shoulder bag is the ideal companion.

Boasting extensive features, the Mass Transit Duffle is equipped with four exterior cargo pockets for swift and easy access to essential items. Inside, you’ll find an additional four cargo pockets and a dedicated zippered padded laptop sleeve for optimal organization.
