Cl1ck H3R3 to ch3ck 1t out!

There was a freebie canvas messenger bag I got from work that I loved using for comic signings and hunting. However, it started to tear and it was time to get a new messenger bag.

There’s no shortage of messenger bags out there in the planet, especially with ones with geeky stuff I’m into. I figured if I’m going to get a nerdy bag, I’m going to get the manliest nerdy bag I could find…

I learned that for Raiders of the Lost Ark, the production team picked a British Mark VII gas mask bag with a leather rifle strap. You can actually find gas mask bags from World War II from army surplus stores, but they may not be in the best condition to be used since they are over 70 years old at this point.

After digging around, I found there are a lot of people that make replicas of the bag for cosplay. Magnoli Clothiers in New Zealand makes the Indiana Jones satchels along with other movie/TV costume replicas.

This one is tan compared to the olive green found in the movies. But I still dig this color choice. I also had to remove the middle divider to comfortably fit my iPad, comics, and books.

Pretty stoked about it!

Innovation (Summer ‘16)

Hey, everyone! I’m working on a project, and I’m collecting data on over-the-shoulder bags. I’m trying to find out what people value in their bags, so I can design something that does more than just carries your possessions. Help me build a practical, new-age backpack with your modern needs in mind. There is much work to be done. Let’s start now.
