ATTN: BIke messengers......bag inquiry.

Recommended Posts

Guest KING OF HELL

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!

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?

dude didn't mean to come off cocky. . .

i didn't remeber your bag was a courier ware . . .but i don't remeber it being as large as mine. .

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

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.

i wasnt being cocky....well i didnt think i was coming off as cocky.

 

but i would go with the bailey works bag. re-load is nice and all but i think bailey will get you more jobs. more jobs, more money.

my ex has a reload, i have a chrome now, and i used to have a bailey. easily the best that i've used: chrome. it's true. i've beat that bitch badly for 2ish years, rode everyday with it, all conditions, and the only problem that i have is a very small tear on the inside lining on one corner. oh, and somehow it still looks new? wtf? it's also the most comfortable of the three. i've never really liked timbuk2's all that much, but i have friends that swear by them. also, if more jobs is good, check out the chrome kremlin if you haven't already. that thing is huge. that's just my 2 pieces o poop. good luck man.

He gets a bike, he gets a job and now he wants a new bag. Will you ever be satisfied?... jk.

 

I think Dlush covered it pretty well. I personally rock the big ass Re-Load bag with all the trimmings because one of the owners is dating a good friend of mine. So I'm supporting. On top of that, it's the best bag I've owned. And I've owned just about every kind minus the Bailys. Which sounds pretty good... especially the strap action. I've seen the Re-Load backpacks and they're bomb-proof. If you want to go with something a little more comfortable on the shoulders... I'd back that bag 100%. Even the Chrome backpack is boomin'. After two broken clavicles and a chipped shoulder blade... backpacks sound better to me everyday. So forgive me if I push 'em...

also, according to a veteran i know, Zo bags are probably the best, but he only makes them for people he knows so i can't help you get one
