Alpine Messenger




A bit blue collar and “smidgen” contrarian, Alpine is where the Jackson Hole working class set mixes with Old West style “characters”.

So it is with our Alpine Messenger – a bag inspired by the beautiful simplicity of an Old West saddlebag with a just a touch of the utilitarian. The Alpine Messenger features a simple strap closure, hand molded and stitched carry handle, internal divider, rear magazine pocket and detachable carry strap.

As with all White Buffalo Republic bags, every piece is cut, stitched, and assembled by hand.

If we do not have an item in stock and you still wish to order an item, you will be placed on the list for the next available item.  Please understand that we do not have the best communication methods between the office in Wyoming and the shop in Guatemala.  (Look on the map - we are far, far away from one another).  This means that we cannot provide you updates as to when your item will arrive.  As a matter of fact, when I do manage to get the guys to answer, they become very agitated and tell me "it will be there when it gets there."
