the leather we are now using is not as red as the photos
sitting on my workshop floor having visions of being a fighter pilot i began to think:
'if i had a top secret mission and the paperwork detailing this mission needed to be safe right next to my body, where would they go???' *hmmm thinking inside my dreaming head*
in a pocket that was constructed out of antique brown leather with lots of straps and clips for safety. and not to forget rivets, brass hardware and chain for that post-modern futuristic style arising from the past. (and just a hint of snakeskin so as to not forget the jungle missions.)
that is the beauty of steam punk style: visions of the past with creative ideas and technology from the future. the innovative engineering creative ideas from the future and the damn good antique look from the past, all combined together. i like it. sounds good. dreams are great, but making it happen is another thing:
-a week of pattern refining.
-a week of engineering.
-a week of experimenting.
-another week of finishing details.
that was before, now fast forward to the 3rd edition, appropriately called the SPM blasting bag 3.0
why call it this?
well, because we have figured out a system so that it can be worn in 3 different ways:
1. around your waist like a holster bag.
2. undo the straps and it can be also transformed into a bag worn like a shoulder holster bag. (secured in place with extra back piece included, see photo).
3. extend the straps full size to be worn like a bag/purse. (also remove the bottom leg strap and clip on wherever you want to create your own look or to detour muggers).
3 totally different looks depending on how you need to present yourself. We feel that this is important because once you start using a belt like this, all your stuff belongs inside it and you dont want to have to switch it all to a different bag for a different look. there are 3 pockets (2 zipper pockets and one flap pocket) which should be enough space for all your top secret mission details (or possessions).
get you goggles on, scarf around you neck, strap your bag on (literally) and get ready to blast.
i hope you have as much fun with it as i did.
the big pocket is: 6.5" tall x 5.5" wide x 1.5" depth
the front pocket is: 5" tall x 4.5" wide x 1.75" depth
flat zipper pocket is: 8" tall x 4.5" wide x flat depth
We have a quick video we put together on how to wear this bag if your having issues:
