Details

This is just one gem of a military messenger bag – aside from being so very cool, it has 3 usable pockets inside! And we all love pockets to hold our stuff and keep us organized! It’s made from a coarse linen, some say hemp or flax, but it’s a nice texture. The “look” of the bag is absolutely stellar. It’s also quite rare – as in nearly impossible to find. I do have to tip my hat to the Czech military for creating such amazing bags!

It’s a bit stiff after my thorough cleaning, sanitizing and deodorizing process, but it does soften with wear. I had to spirit one away for me (as naturally I would!) and I really, really like it. Like the other vintage military bags, it’s easy to wash when it gets dirty. Mild soap, no soaking, shape the bag & let dry! The paint will not be affected as I use only the best art paints that are waterproof. I’ve been using them for over 10 years and wouldn’t use anything else.

I chose to hand paint the Kanji symbol for Peace on the front flap as it’s such a universal symbol. It’s rather imperfect by intention. It really needs no explanation.




The Bag…
~ 12”w x 9”h x 3.5”d
~ Large flap with 2 buckle closure (the buckles aren’t really necessary since the flap is so large.) But they look great!
~ 45” comfy, wide adjustable shoulder strap – can be carried cross body
~ Large main compartment
~ 3 interior pockets – all decent sized!
~ Sturdy, heavyweight linen fabric


. . . . . . . .CLEAN BAGS for your Carrying Pleasure . . . . . . . .

My vintage military bags have been thoroughly cleaned, sanitized and deodorized. I even press them so they look nice! It’s very time consuming (and really no fun at all!) but I would want nothing less than CLEAN in a bag I purchased. Yes, I am a geek about these bags! But with any vintage military...there may be an ever so tiny scent - generally ones with leather (minor, and it will go away with time.) Most find it negligible or nonexistent and are amazed at how wonderfully clean my military bags are!!

Very solid, high quality craftsmanship. This was purchased as a gift for my teenaged daughter for her 17th birthday. She's hard to shop for and very particular (as most teens are)! But she absolutely loves this satchel and has made it home to all her adornments. I think it is great and I'm going to order one for myself. The price is very fair for such good quality. The seller was extremely prompt with shipping. She even notified me that she encountered a slight delay and I still received my bag in less than a week from when the order was placed.

Freaking LOVE this bag. I've actually been following her shop for years, and finally purchased this bag a few months ago. I've waited to write a review to avoid the "new bag bliss."

-This bag sits comfortably on my side due to the way the shoulder strap is attached at the top of the bag-not at the front.

-The interior pockets (3 vertical cylinders) are very versatile in that I use them for keys/wallet/contigo mug.

-The extra straps on the top flap and interior help support the bag when it is full/heavy.

-The bag still possess enough character to stay true to its vintage roots; perfectly imperfect.

FAQs

Dimensions for all bags are listed. If you're still not sure, please send me the dimensions of your computer and I'll check it out for you.
Any vintage bag can be hand washed in mild soap and line dried. Hand washing will not affect the art - the paint is permanent. It will also not affect leather trims on vintage bags. The only exceptions would be a few of the newer styles like the vertical messenger with a hard backerboard in it or the new laptop bags with leather trims.
It depends on the time of year with my painting schedule , but generally no more than 3 - 5 additional days.
If it's of similar detail and one color like others in my shop it'll vary between $5 - $10. If it's more detail and additional colors I can provide you with a quote.
This is the beauty of hand painting! Most all of the art can be painted on about any bag, unless there is a size limitation. You choose your bag and you choose your art!
More than likely not. Each style of bag is exactly the same configuration. It may vary slightly in shade or wear/storage marks on vintage bags. I have chosen to do this to keep costs at a reasonable price. If I were to take photos of each bag, by the time I color correct, crop, and edit photos there would be an increase of approximately $10 per bag. If there is something markedly different in the bag I will either note that or I will do a separate listing.
