$219.00 USD



Handmade Leather Writer's Medic Bag


Crazy Horse Forest Green

Distressed dark green color showing under-tones of light green, sacramento and emerald. 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 messenger bag and adapted it to incorporate the Galen Leather product range.

The Writer's Medic Bag will light up any writer's imagination. With compartments for notebooks, journals, pen slots and accessories, you can easily take all your writing essentials with you wherever your work takes you. This is the perfect writer's gift or gift for fellow lovers and collectors of our Galen Leather products . Now you can keep all your favourite items together and take them on your next adventure! The gorgeous distressed forest green colour is a long time favourite from our leather collection so it was no wonder we had to include it in the Writer's Medic Bag.

The best purchase I've made all year.

I first discovered this bag through Goulet Pens' website a couple months ago, in early July. I only managed to last a few days before I caved in and bought one for myself -- the craftmanship at display here was simply too alluring, I could hardly resist. And for once, my impulsive material desires have rewarded me! This medic bag design is not only a treat to gander at, as I make sure to always leave it on the corner of my desk for ease of admiration, but it's also a wonderfully-executed masterwork of creative utility. This bag can easily contain everything I need to fuel a spate of artistic expression, all conveniently accessible through a small, secure leather latch and a series of magnets that pull free with a satisfying pop. I carry a myriad of fountain pens and pencils in mine, along with some extra stationary, personal keepsakes, a landscape Write Co. landscape notepad, and a Galen Leather Zippered A5 Folio that contains my journal/sketchbook, and even more pens!

Though the included strap may not inspire 100% confidence in its security, as it feels it may potentially pop loose after some years of wear, I am still thoroughly satisfied with this brilliantly-designed bag. I'd be more than happy to make any modifications to make sure that I can use this bag for many, many years to come. It's a work of art!

Beauty is always inspiring

I love my green medic bag. Nowadays, when everything is measured by utility and convenience, is easy to forget that there was a time when beauty mattered. Galen Leather has done a great job rescuing the joy of owning and using beautiful things. Some writers think this is superfluous. I disagree!

Bagdas, Deniz (New Haven, US)

Within seconds of taking my medic bag in my hand, it became one of my favorite things that I own. I can carry my fountain pens, journals, and extra stationery supplies easily with this bag. It is comfortable to wear like a backpack and looks really stylish! The leather has a great quality and the entirety of this bag’s design was done wonderfully!

It’s beautiful

I love my forest green medic kit. All my writing materials, in one leather, beautiful dyed case.
Beautifully wrapped, with tea! A keepsake item. Wonderful.

Their masterpiece fits my favour

This masterpiece brought me the solution what I wished. Looks like a vintage item, but it can well efficiently organise lots of tools, and that functions work as an innovative modern new product. Yes, this is really new, actually. This smaller one can carry my iPad Pro 11 with its Magic Keyboard, and some A5 notebooks as well. Once I opened the bag, a blank desk turned into an equipped office immediately. Yes! This is a mobile desk.

Beautiful Bag!

After watching the YouTube videos on the Medic Bag, I knew it was going to be on my list of things for my first order. It is so unique. I love just looking at it wherever I take it. And it's portability is great. I am also new to the fountain pen world, so my "habit" will definitely go well with the many pen options offered, too. The medic bag hangs perfectly when carrying it. I did add my own strap to it and the brass attachments on the back were perfect for that. I am also in love with the green leather notebook - perfect for writing with my new fountain pens.

Now I am waiting on my next order. Can't wait to get the A5 folio and traveler's notebook. The quality with their products is outstanding and it feels like owning works of art when they are handmade like this. Thank you Galen for your great craftsmanship!

Exceptional Bag

Love the size & durability of this bag! I made a couple of customizations, including a leather shoulder pad (Amazon) and an antiqued name plate which reads “Pen & Paper”, I bought off Etsy. This bag is a lot of fun to personalize and “make your own”. Love how it turned out! Also, I loved reading everyone else’s reviews to see what they put in theirs, which gave me a lot of a good ideas! Here is what I put in mine:

Pens x3
Wax Seal & Melt
Glue Stick
Date Stamp
Decorative Stamps
Stamp Pad
Business Cards
16gb Hard Drive
Postage Scale
Amber Light Book Light
Cards & Envelopes
Brass 8” Ruler

Writers' Every Day Carry (EDC) Bag

When this bag was first introduced, I fell in love just by looking at it.. However, it took me one year to finally decide to purchase it. Now that it is finally in my hands, I don't know why it took me so long to buy it. The distressed Crazy Horse Tan leather is absolutely gorgeous and soft to the touch. Every new mark on this well-constructed bag tells a unique tale in its enduring journey. Although I'm writing this review during lockdown, I still find myself bringing this bag with me from room to room. It keeps my fountain pen collection and other writing/office essentials together in one place and ready at my disposal. I include an A5 pad and a Traveler's Notebook, but any item larger than these (ex. A4 pads/books) will not fit. There is a larger version available now, but I'm glad I decided on the original. It is a perfect size to take along with me to coffee shops or parks when it is safe to do so again. If you're really in awe just looking at it, don't wait like I did. The earlier you get it, the more time you'll get to enjoy it.

A romantic piece of art

This bag is unique. A revisited vintage medic bag to hold your pens, writing sets, paper, books and journal. I love writing and I will keep it always with me in my travels. Thanks to Galen Leather Co. A

Very Happy

This bag is beautiful and I love using it! I'm putting pencils and my sketching kit in it and taking it out field drawing.. It's well made, the leather is gorgeous and it's comfortable to carry around. I'm curious though - why is the front closure strap on my bag attached to the outside of the lid? All the photos and reviews I've seen show the strap attached to the underside of the lid. Is this a change in design or just somebody not concentrating on the day? It doesn't detract though, looks aesthetically pleasing and I think, allows the lid to sit flatter on the body with the strap on the outside. I'd like to thank Yunus and Fedex Turkey for their efforts to get my parcel moving while it languished in Singapore for a week. I appreciate that extra bit of customer service. Also a delight - and much appreciated - are the extra little gifts that Galen Leather included in the parcel. Thank you Yunus and the Galen team! As one other reviewer said: "Treat yourself!" I'm glad I did.
