This is just one gem of a vintage military 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 date stamped on the inside flap from the early 50's!!

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. I've taken it on several travel adventures and it passed with flying colors as an awesome bag!! I use it as my every day bag as well, so I can surely tout its virtues!

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 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!
~ 47” comfy, wide adjustable shoulder strap – can be carried cross body
~ Large main compartment
~ 3 interior pockets – all decent sized!
~ Sturdy, heavyweight linen fabric

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!!

Frequently asked questions about clpstudio

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.
