Handmade Leather Writer's Medic Bag


Crazy Horse Smoky Grey/Distressed Distressed smoky color showing under-tones of the black and rich grey. 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 writer's gift. 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 don’t need to bring it with me right now…but I can’t bear to leave it behind”

The title quote being what I said on a trip to the grocery store the day I got this bag. It was my Christmas present from my family and I couldn’t be happier. The grey color is so neutral but also modern, and I simply can’t wait to see how it ages. It’s as beautiful as I imagined and I can’t wait to work it into my day.

In case you haven’t watched hands-on videos, note that this bag is squire small. The largest cross section is about the same LxW as my 11” iPad and the Apple Pencil doesn’t sit very comfortably in its magnetic home on the edge of the ipad because of that (but there are pen holders galore for that). The small size is a feature, not a bug, though. I almost opted for the XL size, but I think that it would’ve just been too massive for me to feel like I can use it on a daily basis. I just want to be able to get out and get writing and this bag is just perfect for that.

Now don’t mind me I’m gonna go climb in bed with my new writer’s bag…

A gift I will treasure

I recently lost my mom to pancreatic cancer. So l bought this bag because of the story about the creator. I been writing a lot about the ordeal me and my mom experienced during her last 5 months. This bag has become me carrying case for all my journaling tools. It is a great bag, it holds most of my tools and it is sturdy. The bag is crafted beautifully. Thank you Galen leather company for this beautiful gift.

An Amazing Gift!

I received this bag for my birthday, and I absolutely love it! It's compact, stylish, and is perfect for carrying my fountain pens! My only less-than-positive comment might be about the strap, which is a little uncomfortable, but a shoulder pad would be an easy fix (and it will probably soften up as I use it anyway.) I highly recommend this bag!

Very handsome bag

That was the compliment I received while carrying and I thought it was a fitting description. In fact, everytime I have the bag I’m asked who makes it . I can’t wait to make a few more purchases to fill it up . Thanks Galen for the great quality and also customer service Is top notch


This bag was everything I hoped it would be. Beautifully made. I get complements every time I carry it.

Great bag...some features left to be desired

Honestly. I love this bag. It holds everything I need, is sturdy, and definitely is well made. (Even if a little thin for the things I like to carry. It forces me to carry light. Which is fine by me). In honesty, the dimensions are fine. Any wider and it would be extremely awkward to carry or use as a bag.

But that being said. It left a couple things to be desired about the features. The strap-while a good length- is rather thin. It feels very sturdy, but I wonder about the wear and tear of it over time. Plus, it’s not long enough to be used as a backpack if you have long arms or broad shoulders so forget that feature.
And the buttons. They are sturdy too and I have yet to have the bag open on me randomly at the top. But they will need constant checks to make sure they do not come off. They are held together by a screw on type of rivet that is small and as you use it they will start to unscrew themselves.
So be sure to check them frequently. I had one unscrew on me and I was lucky enough to catch it before I lost it. I check them every day now.

I use journals from Citrus Book Bindery in the UK. This bag will only hold one of their Softcovers (a 4x) and a couple of inserts comfortably in the A5 size. B5 will fit end to end, but it cannot be too large width wise. We’ll see as the leather loosens up a bit. It will fit an iPad Air-iPad Pro (10.9 and 11” models) with one journal.

I bought this on Black Friday so I think it was totally worth the price and came sooner than I expected! And other than the strap and the fastenings holding it, I am extremely pleased and excited. I get complements about it all the time.
