**FIRE SALE products can only be returned for exchange for other FIRE SALE product(s) within 30-days (refund not available for FIRE SALE items)**

SKITCH-12 Messenger Bag is THE ultimate blend of a travel-friendly urban messenger, and a covert CCW tactical attaché.

From a traditional bike-messenger satchel, to a drybag-style “rolltop” case, then to a full 17" deep open-top carryall, SKITCH’s incredible ability to morph with the size and style of your load-out seamlessly makes it the best all-around shoulder bag!

SKITCH-12’s TSA-friendly fold-out laptop compartment will fit a 12"-13" laptop*. It is fully padded with locking zippers, and can be used for storing your CCWs. Located on the bottom front of the SKITCH is a horizontal zippered garage, perfect for cables, power supplies, or even a bike pump! 

The SKITCH can be configured into four different carry-modes: SHORT, MEDIUM, TALL, and OPEN-TOP. 

On the “SHORT” carry-mode (14-Liter), SKITCH is a traditional bike-messenger bag with a flap secured by two 1” DURAFLEX buckles and hook-and-loop strips with silencers. You have rapid access via dual locking #8 YKK zippers into the main CCW-ready compartment while the flap remains closed.

On the “MEDIUM” carry-mode (16-Liter), SKITCH transforms into a drybag-style “rolltop“ case, which gives you extra space while keeping out elements such as dirt and rain. A CCW-ready double-sided Napoleon pocket, multiple gusseted, hook-and-loop-secured open-top pockets, and a front admin panel keep vital items ready for quick access.

On the “TALL” carry-mode (23-Liter), SKITCH-12’s full 12.5" wide x 4.5" deep x 17" tall sack will accommodate nearly twice the capacity of the “SHORT” carry-mode. On this high volume load-out mode, you can carry with the flap fastened down with buckles and full-length straps.

Finally the "OPEN-TOP" carry-mode will accommodate pretty much anything that doesn't fit using the "TALL" mode. 

Hi-Viz 210-D orange ripstop nylon lining offers fantastic contrast for instant identification. Luggage handle pass-through on the back, MOLLE fields on two sides, ambidextrous hydration bladder compatibility, and lockable YKK zippers make the SKITCH ideal for world travelers and urban commuters.

Neoprene grab handle sits atop, while soft body canted, crush-proof hook-and-loop shoulder strap attachment makes a comfortable and solid anchor point. Under the arm, load stabilizer keeps the bag from swaying and can be set to the left or right side. Front flap features single row hook-and-loop MOLLE strip and patch. Discretely positioned on the sides of the SKITCH are two MOLLE rows providing user adaptability.

The use of genuine 1000-D Cordura® treated with water-repellant Dupont Teflon®, plus premium YKK zippers, ITW and Duraflex hardware further ensures the SKITCH can go the distance.

Turn your SKITCH-12 into a bike-messenger bag that rides comfortably on your back, and switchable between right- and left-shoulder with an **optional GT-COBRA™ Sling strap that uses THE world-renowned ITW / AustriAlpin GT-COBRA™ buckle that's non-metallic, crush-proof, and rated at 500-pound tensile strength!

*SKITCH-12 can fit a 2015 12.9" iPad Pro, or a 13" MacBook Pro, or a 13" MacBook Air.

  1. Super versatile bag, works for hauling or for office-briefcase work 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Jul 2017

    Ideal briefcase, versatile. Get the "15" if you have a larger laptop, otherwise this seems to me to be the perfect office- or commuter-size. Carries EDC items, office-items, and lunch with room to spare!


  2. Great bag 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Jun 2017

    This bag is awesome. I did not want anything to do with this bag when I first saw it but I contacted the company and was giving them my wish list of new style of carryall bags and they told me to look into this particular one. I did not care for the bag when I first saw it but I began to watch videos about the bag which is hard to find, but there are ample videos on the Skitch 15. I went to head and ordered it and I love it. I do wish there were more internal pockets but this bag has lots of storage and different capacity options. It is small enough to make it a great every day carry bag but it will hold plenty of gear. As always the quality of the product from this company is off the charts. If you were looking for a great little messenger bag this is it but if you think you need something larger go with the larger option.


  3. Carry-All 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Jan 2017

    For me this the perfect size bag and the expansion feature makes it even more practical. I can carry a full size handgun w/clips, a 10" tablet, and all the other personal items I require for daily use. I own other brands but they just aren't as convenient to personalize as my Vanquest gear.


  4. Great gear bag! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Jan 2017

    I purchased this bag to replace a backpack I used as a gear bag. I couldn't be happier with my decision. I selected Wolf Grey which is great color that doesn't scream tactical.
    I like the bags lay out as it is perfect for all the gear I need at work (I'm an LEO). The only addition I made was a 4x6 First Aid Trauma pack attached with 5" molle sticks. Now my IFAK is right there without searching inside the bag.
    I highly recommend this bag for full blown duty or leisure trek in the woods.


  5. The best messenger bag for the money! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Dec 2016

    The Skitch 12 is an excellent bag. The various ways that the bag can transform from messenger style to roll up to open/tall carry is great depending on what you have from day to day. I coupled mine with the GT Cobra buckle strap and it is awesome. The pockets are well designed and the orange ripstop interior really helps to find things in the bottom of the bag without needing extra light.


  6. Exactly What I Needed 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Dec 2016

    Been hanging out for one of these for a while. Had to wait for a discount because of the sick Aussie dollar. So glad I did. This is exactly what I was looking for. I had a Maxpedition brief case and that was too big, too heavy, to rigid and way, way too expensive. (Anyone want it make me an offer, it's unused.) This bag from Vanquest is so versatile, lightweight and easy to adapt to any of your carry needs. From work; packing a MacBook 13". To loading up with EDC and emergency gear for longer trips and as a vehicle bag. Thank you Vanquest. Everything I've purchased from you is the BEST!


  7. Almost Perfect 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Nov 2016

    I was using a Trident 20 backpack as my EDC bag which was awesome. I am now in a more business/ office setting and had been looking for a messenger. The 12 is perfect. everything that was in my trident 20 (gen 1) fits. The design of the bag makes it super easy to get in and out of while walking. Easy to carry when traveling and carrying a large backpack at the same time. My only issue is that I would like to see a few more pockets in the main interior area. Great bag if you are looking for a not giant messenger you want to be with you at all times.

  9. No question, this is the one you want. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Mar 2016

    I admit it, I'm a bag junkie. I have a serious thing about having the right bag for the job. This is the one that makes all of my other bags obsolete. Messenger bag, Laptop bag, CCW bag, it's even big enough to be a small B.O.B. I have bags from ALL of the competitors, but never again. Of course, if I need to link them or the accessories together, it's all MOLLE, so it'll work. I'm completely hooked. I wanted an EDC bag for being downtown, on foot, or on my bike or scooter, and this is it. But it's so much more. More options and versatility than I can list. I am really impressed.


  10. Excellent! 5 Star Review
