    So, I need a new bag. Badly. My current bag is 7 years old, and flimsy and waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too small. It's making it difficult to take on more jobs and more jobs is more money.

    I've looked into a few bags: Timbuk, Re-load, and Baileyworks...anything i should know about these or any other bags that anyone can tell me?...
    I dont want to waste my time with bullshit if i can help it. i need deep, big, durable, and of course..i need to look good:D

    timbuk: stupid. they dont carry much.

    re-load: these are good bags but i think there's better ones out there.

    bailey bags: go with this one. they advertise their bag size with how many cans of beer you can fit in. less straps, really lightweight, can carry a shit load of shit (file box and a flat), quick release strap which make it easier to release, and bailey is good because he is a drunk. he's fucking crazy for an older guy....support the older man!

    you're all so fucking oblivious

    KING OF HELL Guest

    no no.. YOU dont know. how many times have we hung out?.. did you not notice the courier ware bag that i have?.. its just too flimsy, it has no depth, its not cutting the mustard at all. i like the people, and all, but its not helping me at all right now.

    im looking at reload and bailey works. if theres anything i haventy covered or if someone has a better suggestion, instead of being cocky, why dont you make it?

    LARGE 13"deep X 22" long X 9" wide (2150 cu.in.)
    but hey thats all i need.. mayne you need more
    "Super Deluxe Courier Bag
    This bag has everything - a pocket on every surface for those who are organized enough to remember where they put things. It features three inside front pockets (four in the Large), three outside front pockets (two in the Extra Small), an inside back divider/pocket with a Velcro closure for clothes or files, a reinforced Cordura base, and an additional outside back panel pocket with a Velcro closure. This bag also combines with the camera insert to convert into a camera bag. We’ve also had reports back that this bag works really well as a baby/diaper bag because it has so many waterproof pockets and dividers"

    i'm just a bit loyal

    i have a giant ass bag that i got from south korea like 2 years ago. the straps have buckles on them so you can release one and the bag swings to the front. pretty dope.

    oh no no no...i wasnt directing the cocky statement at you, i tried to seperate the paragraphs so that one was directed twards you and the other was directed twards the smartasses.
    im going to keep my courierware bag for leisure but i need a better work bag... its not for paint or fun... deffinitely for work.
