Looks cool, except they want a hundred and ninety bucks for a tee shirt.

And from the back it'll look like you're wearing a sports bro!

To quote from Seinfeld


"You want me to wear a bra?"
"No, no, a bra is for ladies. Meet the Bro!"

"Bro's no good. Too ethnic."
"You got something better?"
"How about the Mansiere?"
"Mansiere."
"That's right. A brassiere for a man."

So it holds a grand total of a cell phone, a credit card, and a small MP3 player (which, if you put it in the back pocket as shown, will make you look goofy every time you try to press any of the MP3 player's buttons). It's like an expensive, inconvenient pocket that looks like a futuristic sports bra from behind. I'll take ten!

I don't get this one either. It offers no more carrying capacity than the rear pockets on my jersey (and it looks harder to access).

It does nothing exceptional. I don't see anything good about it.

A jersey with pockets will hold much more. With a little practice it's not hard to reach into a jersey pocket whiile moving.

I think it would be pretty badass if it had some kind of propellant in there. You can reach to the side straps and push a button and then you'd be all Bailey like and fly as you get blasted awayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy...............!!! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!

I made my messenger bag out of duct tape and an old seatbelt (it's really classy, by the way). Why buy when you can DIY??
