Just ask him where he got his bag. Probably here. This sturdy messenger bag in olive drab canvas measures 13” x 10” x approx 5” with a deep pocket, little pocket, long pocket, snapped pocket, clips for keys, straps for an umbrella, and a padded strap. On the smaller side for messengers, it’s perfect for students, commuters, travelers and anyone who carries a bunch of stuff. (Mr. Mom alert: nothing looks less like a diaper bag.) Manufacturer suggests a price of $44.95, but phooey on them, we say.
Call it the bag of a lesser messenger. This dark olive Extreme Pak™ tote looks like a mini-backpack but has a shoulder strap plus a pair of handles. Measures approx 11-1/2" tall x 8-1/2" wide x 6" deep front to back, it's got a big inside zippered compartment, a smaller zippered pouch on the bottom, a pair of hook-and-loop closed pockets on the top, plus a plethora (that'd be 10) of band loops to hang stuff off. Mfg suggested retail is over $30. Just saying.
Put your pencils in a pouch, pal. This one just happens to be an 8-1/4" x 3-1/2" zippered cutie that looks like a small boombox, and you don't really have to keep pencils in it. You could keep anything in it, but if you kept an iPod in it you'd be retro and ironic at the same time. Which is probably ironic in itself, we're not sure.
Our dark blue canvas zippered pouch is 7-1/2” x 5-1/2” by approx 2” thick, with a second, 4-3/4” x 4-1/2” zippered pouch on the front. An unobtrusive and unidentifiable (at least to us) logo is stitched on it, and on the back are (2) elastic straps and a snap-open belt loop perpendicular to them, so you can wear it vertically or horizontally. No belt? It has a 5” long wrist strap.
Super lightweight red nylon day pack, perfect for packing on vacation or for regular kiddie use. Measures 17” x 11” x 5-1/4” when unfurled with 30” adjustable straps. Has an integral carrying pouch on the inside top, so it can get completely inside itself (which is more than we can do) into a neat 5-1/2” square bundle. Zippered top closure.
What, no powder? In that case, keep your phone, cash and tuna-fish sandwich dry in this waterproof pouch. In translucent vinyl, it measures 6-1/2" x 9" when closed with the thrice-folded top (for waterproofishness) and a grippy hook-and-loop closure. Comes with a removable 7" strap, and would be easy to add a neck strap to if you were so inclined. A must-have for water-filled vacations.
We usually put our popcorn in a bowl, but this large, 23" x 18" promotional tote bag from Dale and Thomas Popcorn ("Share Some®") argues otherwise. It's surplus, though, so you're now permitted to carry anything you want in it. Has a red and white pattern that seems to be a cornfield in the snow, and a drawstring top.
Tote it proudly in one of these clear vinyl tote bags. Measure approx 12” x 10” x 3-1/2” when expanded. Seamed with purple nylon trim and handles, and have a double-snap closure around a set of grommets in case you want to decorate them with ribbon ties and use them as party favors/door prizes/gift bags.
We think these clear, heavy vinyl zip-top pouches were made to hold make-up, with slots for applicators, lip-sticks, etc., but they’re mighty handy for a plethora-and-a-half of sundry storage and travel needs. You pick the small pouches, 5-1/2" x 4-7/8" tall with (3) 1-3/8” x 2-1/8” tall inner sleeves along the bottom; or the large at 7-3/4" x 5" with (5) 1-1/2” wide x 2” deep inner sleeves plus another teeny one 2” long x 3/8” at a right angle. The sleeves are only on one side, so the whole expanding pouch is also available for storage.
