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.
We’re music-loving folk here at the surplus capital of America, so we like this high-quality, triangular, olive drab nylon case, originally intended to be a gun case, for toting your ukulele from luau to tiki bar. Padded, measures 22” long x 10” wide at the big end, narrowing to approx 4” at the bottom. Zipper on (3) sides, shoulder strap, outside 5” x 7-1/2” flapped pocket, and myriad slots on both sides. Also good for a junior fiddle, or some flutes and tin whistles.
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.
Mystery bag. Held something once (what didn’t?) but we know not what. Measures 8” tall x 5-3/4” in lined and softly padded olive green nylon with a silverish bottom stripe. Closes via a drawstring and cord lock. Also has a small loop on the back through which one could thread a cord were one so inclined.
It will take a person of some sartorial presence to carry this, but if a man’s (or woman’s) reach does not exceed his (or her) grasp, then what’s a heaven for? (Don’t write to complain--call Robert Browning.) In vinyl, in a take-no-prisoners floral print, this pouch/purse is 6-1/2" x 4-5/8" with a gold-tone retro snap closure. The question is: do you have the confidence to carry it?
Time ago, burlap bags're all over the place, child. Sisal sacks too. We used 'em to make sandbags, protect winterin' plants and keep down weeds, sew up scratchy britches, and collect frogs. Made dog beds out of 'em, fulla wood chips. Mama called 'em tote sacks or croker sacks, and daddy aluss kep' a few in the bed of the pick-up. 'Course daddy went and died and them plastic bags took over. Mama hated that. These here burlap bags used to have coffee inside and they say they're from lotta different countries and your'n might could be anywhere from about (3) to (4) foot long by 28" wide, good fer big dogs or small dogs-lotta frogs either way.
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.
The snazzy part is the metallic-toned bottoms. These nylon pouches are 6" deep x 3-3/4" lined and lightly padded. Have drawstrings and spherical cord locks, plus small tabs on the back, which would take a neck cord if you had one. You pick black and olive green with metallic-toned checkerboard bottom, or red with gold-tone bottom.
You say you're just lying around, too depressed to get up cuz you lost all your pouches? We've got a plethora of pouches, pal. Lightweight black canvas with belt loops, approx 3-1/2" long, 1-1/4" x 1". Probably for small knives or multi-tools, but befitting house keys, lipsticks, candy bars, Pez dispensers, fake thumbs, toy cars, whatever. Some have fold-over flaps with hook-n-loop closures and others don't, and we'll pick them for you.
