Distressed navy blue color showing under-tones of dark blue, light purple and rich navy. Ages and softens quicker compared to regular leather. Suede feeling finish.
In honour of our founder Zeynep's last design, we've finally brought her dream to life. As a lover of all things vintage, she was inspired by the design of a traditional medic kit bag and adapted it to incorporate the Galen Leather product range.
The Writer's Medic Bag will light up any writer's or creative's imagination. It's the ultimate stylish way to carry around your writing kit to the coffee shop, on the train, plane or wherever your work takes you. With compartments for notebooks, journals, pen slots and accessories, you can easily pack all your writing essentials with you.
Galen Leather fans will fall in love with this writing kit bag as it's the ultimate collector's item for displaying all your favourite products from our range. It also makes a beautiful and thoughtful gift for a writer. The gorgeous distressed tan colour is a best seller throughout our collections so without a doubt we had to include it as a colour option for the Writer's Medic Bag.

I love my Writer's Medic Bag XL in Crazy Horse Navy. It's perfect for organizing my holiday card writing supplies, or my regular pen pal correspondence supplies and enough pens to make the writing fun. I have my stamps and envelopes and stationary in it as well as many other writing related items. It's so fun to have this perfect bag for the purpose. The leather is lovely and is aging nicely. I'm so pleased with this bag!
I love it. I have not yet set it up. I’m in the process of doing,it now. It is true to the color and the size.
This medic bag for writers features a variety of secure pen holders, slots for letters, papers, and personal items, as well as a dedicated section for larger notebooks and a laptop.
I was able to fit a large hardback notebook, a soft-cover notebook, and my laptop into the notebook slot, as well as fit in my pens, a bottle of ink, two letters, several smaller notebooks, a coin purse, and a tin with pen nibs. There is also space for keys and a slot for cards.
The front flap of the bag folds out for easy setup and securely magnetizes to the sides of the bag when it comes time to pack up. The front latch secures the flap and keeps the bag closed while you are walking, biking, or even running to catch the bus.
The bag also comes with an adjustable leather strap that can be quickly attached to the bag for easy carrying.
Although the bag ships from Turkey, I received it quickly. It came securely packaged and was an absolute delight to open! I am already using this bag as my day bag when I go out. It is comfortable, easy to use, and a statement piece my literary self will treasure forever.

I love this piece. It is a treasure sure to last and its character can only grow as it ages and gains in experience. It's a great size. I currently have it full of brush pens and water color pads & paints. It has ample slots for all the various implements one might need, pads, note cards, IDs, credit cards, business cards, whatever. The blue color is stunning, and the leather itself is thick and smooth.
It came with extra metal pieces--I'm guessing this is in case anything wears out, which is a great touch on the part of the folks at Galen. Likewise, the thoughtful inclusions of Turkish delicacies were a fun surprise that helps create a connection with the people and culture from which Galen Leather sprung. The hand-written lines of poetry from Rumi on a card in the bag found me in just the right place and have inspired me to love this Writer's Medic Bag. My creative and artistic side has been re-awoken, and this will be my standard travel bag for all the essentials. This object may well outlive me and be passed on to a deserving descendent one day
I'm honored to carry a piece of Zeynep's legacy with me wherever I go. She sounds like a marvelous individual and knowing this was one of her crowning achievements really creates a connection. Thanks, Yusuf, for bringing this to life!
I agonized about buying this bag for almost a year. I wish I'd bought it sooner. First of all, it arrived really, really (really!) quickly. I understood that it had a long way to travel and was coming from a small business so I was prepared to wait, but I didn't have to. The packaging was beautiful and filled with extra little treasures. So fun! The quality of the bag is impeccable. I will absolutely order from Galen Leather again. I can't say enough good things about my experience.
Ordered this the day it became available.
There’s lots to love about it. And I’d love to love it. But...
I think that some changes need to be made for the next version. These issues weren’t initially apparent, but here we are:
1) The design could really benefit from a broader strap and strap design.
2) Most importantly... the flap/wall can’t withstand a couple of months of solid usage. The corners have begun to fray and fall apart. This just reveals cardboard, and has needed to be glued several times. A more solid fabric, sewn ends, corner protection, etc., all of these would make for a much more durable product.
3) I wish that the flap was solid and could be used as a desk.
4) I wish that it were a LITTLE bit deeper, as it would be able to better accommodate hardcover books without things getting cramped.
I’d consider buying more Galen products in the future — I love some of their products — but I wouldn’t recommend this one for daily use, only for the occasional.
I ultimately gave mine away to a friend, and have since switched to a briefcase.
As a lifelong writer, I've honestly looked for the 'perfect' writing bag for home and travel for YEARS. I finally found it. This bag is a masterpiece.
WOW!!! This bag exceeds even my expectations! The care of packaging is outstanding. The speed of delivery in these trying times was amazing (it took longer for a package to reach me from 2 states away, than my package from Turkey)! Then the Medic Bag itself! I was amazed at how much this bag can easily hold. From the description, I figured it would hold paper, pens, ink, a tablet etc. However, it easily holds laptop, PanPastel trays, colored pencils, pencils, fountain pens, ink, cords, and so much more! The craftmanship is exquisite and I wish I could figure out more uses so I could justify getting another one! LOL Thank you so much for designing and crafting such a lovely piece! It inspires me to even more creativity!
Parents got this for me for Yulemas and absolutely adore it. While the video reviews on YouTube had problems with it suiting them as a backpack and as a cross body- I find it is perfect on me (5ft5in female with narrow set shoulders). It securely closes even though I pack it to the brim with watercolor supplies, paper, journals, notebooks, and pens. Great for going out on a walk or a short hike and setting up one's art supplies to capture the scene.
As you can read, I am one to pack everything but the kitchen sink in my bags of holding (do not tempt me to carry a miniature sink for this. I have and will.) and it holds a good amount of items while separating up into different compartments to prevent damage. Highly recommend for the artist and writer alike.
I absolutely love everything about this bag! I treated myself to the larger size in order to fit my laptop. It fits nicely plus I am able to store notebooks, pens, cables, notecards, etc. I love the navy blue color and can't wait to see the patina it will acquire as it ages. All in all, I am very happy with this purchase.
