Being almost identical to his younger brother Sindrome, Elephantitus got his name due to his ability to carry way more gear. He took steroids to do it (dont let his mum know), but look at him now... he's massive. With a removable second shoulder strap, the Elephantitus is one tough dude. You wouldn't want to meet him in a dark alley...
Elephantitus is designed and built with the professional messenger in mind. Able to fit A3 folders, archive boxes and poster tubes, the Elephantitus is a ridiculously big messenger bag. If you want to talk volume in terms of alcohol, the Elephantitus will be able to carry more than enough Bundy for an open house party; fourty one 700ml bottles to be exact, which is roughly 51L of internal volume. Our abuser-team testers assure us messengers need such a big size, but be warned it may be too big for some people.

Despite what people may tell you, size really does matter when you get paid per job. Which is why we made certain that an Archive Box slots neatly inside. A second box can be placed on top, still protected by the large weatherproof flap. Carrying such weight and bulk is made possible by an easily removable secondary shoulder strap, which evens the weight across both shoulders. Empty or fully loaded, the bag wont sway as a stabiliser strap is standard. Base, hip and shoulder compression means that carrying these boxes won't feel like you are wearing a barrel across your back. These same straps cinch the bag down to a manageable size when empty so you don't feel like you are wearing a cape.
Internally the bag tub is clean with no pockets so nothing snags and slows you down when inserting or removing objects; time after all is money. But rest assured you will find more than enough pockets on the outside of the bag. The pleated pocket in particular is big enough to fit two phone books, while a shelf pocket inside this is perfect for stashing wallet, phone and sunglasses. On the outside of this pocket are pen pockets and a slash pocket big enough to place extension straps. Oh, and there is a dedicated drink bottle pocket, as well as our standard D-lock pocket. Secret pocket comes standard, and is big enough to fit a passport.
Lashing boxes and awkward shaped items to the bag is made easy by multiple clipping points across the bag. You can also use these clipping points to hang add-on pouches, or the occasional poster tube. Blinky lights can be attached to the main flap, while all strap padding is removable and washable to reduce eau-de-courier. Left or right handed? It doesn't matter as the main straps are also removable and reversible!
Outer: 1000D Cordura, a highly abrasion resistant material which will last daily use for multiple years.
Liner: 300D Polyester, abrasion resistant, providing a smoth surface for continuous professional use
Middle: Reclaimed PVC billboard or truck tarp so your contents always stay dry.
Padding: 10mm EVA foam, which won't compress out under even the heaviest of loads! Easily removable and hand washable
