    Any clue to the manufacturer of this mess bag? Spotted on flickr:





    The owner might even be on this forum. Thanks in advance.

    If it's a Bailey, it's a completely different design than any of their others. The various design accents like the reflective strip don't match either.

    it sorta looks like a pac bag. but i'm not sure the cross strap clasp looks like that. and it's missing the pac logo on the strap.

    maybe the key is that little white piece on the inner velcro. F05?

    It's got the buckle of a Bailey but more of an x-strap design like the PAC. A new company?

    my bet, given the flickr pics, new company or individual making their own bags. why not email him/her and find out?

    i think you're right, especially sine the pics are in a set called 'make'.

    looks like witz already posted a comment asking who made the bag.

    going by the name of the photoset (make), the fact that there are pics of three different bags plus a small hip pouch, i'm gonna go out on a limb and say whoever took those pics (or someone they know) made the bags themself.

    They are hot - they have that Freitag truck tarp going on as well. Looks like they might have some potential buyers on hand. I quite like the looks of them. That small hip bag is pretty nifty too.

    I did leave a comment, no reply yet. I suspect the guy (or girl) made it, if it is a "homemade" project, it's pretty damn pro.

    Strap set up looks almost the same as a Chrome, but maybe even better quality. Hopefully we'll hear a response.

    Here is the response I got. the link is really super-packed with info. i would post the whole page here, but read for yourself:

    "that is so sweet...

    answer: i make the bags.

    want to know more? when i started i wrote the story here:

    http://eeio.blogspot.com/2004/12/rec...messenger.html

    clickable link

    but they keep getting better. you know, practice.
    i call them "fool bags". so they are not bailey works, or PAC (even thought i admire them). fool they are.

    the bright orange material, the one that looks quilted, is a road sign. highly reflective. very resistant.

    i've sold some of them at the bicycle kitchen in L.A (www.bicyclekitchen.com). more on the works..."

    This guy is awesome, his bag design will probably be perfected in no time. It looks like he's pretty much there. Cost?

    I've been toying with my own bag designs for a while, but this guy has really inspired me.. I think I'm going to push the rest of the way through and finish up my custom bag! He's done some really nice work, and its cool seeing the very beginnings up through the most current projects, plus all the recycled stuff use is great! I like the idea of cutting up road signs to make bags.

    peace,
    sam

    If you think $150CAD for a bag is expensive, check out pac deisgns! I think their top model pushes $300!

    yeah, it's less than $US120.00

    the dimensions on the bag seem a little weird tho.. 15" x 12" x 12" which come out to just over 2000"^3; comparable to the chrome metropolis, but basically in a cube.

    what's the deal with that?

    The cocotte bags are super popular in Montreal (duh). Probably 9 out of 10 of the couriers there use them. They are also cool about supporting the local courier scene and local businesses. Th bag design is nice, and seems less 'cubish' than it sounds ...

    Why not just buy straight from their website via their Paypal shopping cart? It's all set up to go. Clicnbuy! Clicnbuy!
