A very special exclusive limited edition of the TAD Parallax Messenger 15L Gridded. This version is crafted from this limited edition gridded VX21 sailcloth, in 100 units, and is only available outside the USA. Grab yours now, while stocks last.


Designed to navigate the urban landscape with ease and discretion, the TAD Parallax Messenger Bag is the perfect accomplice. A new perspective on single-shoulder carry systems, the Parallax is an adaptable and subtle solution to the challenges of everyday carry in the modern metropolis.


Equally at home as a shoulder bag or across the back as a messenger bag, the Parallax defies categorization. Quickly adaptable for left or right shoulder carry, the ambidextrous shoulder strap adjusts to the user’s preference. Dual cam buckles on the strap lock in your preferred fit and control the integrated webbing management system. When worn across the back, a stabilizer strap secures the bag in place during active pursuits, and stows discreetly when not in use.


Innovative magnetic buckles self-align and mechanically lock. Easily opened and closed with a single hand, the buckles are usable even with thick gloves. End-user removable for repair or reconfiguration, the magnetic buckles can be easily swapped for Cobra buckles or other 1" fastening hardware as desired.


Dual webbing straps compress the bottom of the bag. The paneled foam bottom folds when compressed, creating a sleek profile.


ORGANIZED
Inspired by the intermodal container system, the Helix (HX) attachment system provides a lightweight, modular solution for configuring storage platforms. Helix supports standardized, interconnecting modules which can be configured as fixed or railed storage, a multitude of compression and attachment options, and paneled storage configurations.


The cavernous main compartment includes multiple Helix attachment points for use with a wide range of organizing accessories, including Control Panels, Small Transport Sleeves, and Admin Panels.


Inside the main compartment, an internal zippered admin pocket secures essentials. On either side of the main compartment, large open top pockets keep larger items such as water bottles easily accessible.



Front pocket features:


Interior D-ring anchor points: 1, each side.


Front, Right: Vertical zipper access to internal side volume, with single drop pocket at the bottom.


Front, Left: Vertical zipper access to pocket running the full front face and left side of the bag.


The shoulder strap pad has integrated webbing loops to allow for attaching essential quick access items such as a flashlight, radio, Pharos Marker, carabiner, or attaching our S1 and S2 Sheaths.


ACCESSIBLE
The single strap design allows the Parallax to be easily rotated to the front for quick access without removing the bag.


Protected from the main compartment's contents and padded for comfort against your back, a zippered pocket on the back panel protects flat equipment such as tablets or laptops up to 15”.


An external drop pocket at the center front allows smaller items to be quickly accessed without opening the main flap.


A centered welt pocket conceals 3 rows of 1” webbing, compatible with small accessories such as bike lights, folding knives, or our S1, S2 sheaths, or Thyrm Cell Vaults.


Carry handle lies flat when not in use.


RESILIENT
The TAD Parallax utilizes advanced materials to create a lightweight but resilient carry system. Originally developed as a high-performance sailcloth, the shell is a durable, weather-resistant ripstop nylon laminated with a structurally reinforcing scrim. Strategically placed Hypalon and a reinforced, bathtub bottom ensure durability over regular long-term use.


Extended, self-folding gussets keep your gear protected from the elements.

    I would love to know how you justify this price tag for a shoulder bag

    Brilliant messenger bag

    Posted by NL on 10th Jan 2019

    Make no mistake, I fully appreciate that dropping over three hundred notes on a bag is a lot and put me off getting this initially.

    When I eventually relented it was out of stock and then, as fate would have it, our good friends at Heinnie got some more.

    I can wholeheartedly say that this bag is an exceptional bit of kit. I have owned numerous messengers over the years, including some in a similar price bracket but I had issues with each one.

    Everything on the Parallax is incredibly well thought out. The stitching is perfect and the layout of all the pockets is thoughtfully executed, particularly the left hand pocket (if you are facing the front of the bag) which runs the entire length of the bag.

    Everyone who has seen it has complimented me on it. The gridded x-pac is slightly textured, has a unique look to it that distinguishes it from other bag materials, including the normal x-pac.

    It does have a stabiliser strap that is interchangeable (depending on shoulder preference) but honestly the padded strap makes the bag stable enough that I have had no need to use the stabiliser.

    The main strap is easy to adjust. My only gripe however is that - due to the hardware on the strap - I cant get it to sit as high on my shoulder as I would otherwise like. But the overall quality of design and construction is such that I am more than willing to overlook it.

    The quality of the zips are top notch and it is nice to finally see someone use fidlocks as standard. Once you have got used to them, even cobra buckles become inferior.

    All in all I would highly recommend this bag.
