now ya done it. i'm off to the surplus store.
does the orange patch indicate things inside made loud explosive noises?
i've wanted a bar bag for a long time, but they all attach with a quick release (fragile, to me), or velcro type straps. i want something that will ruin the bag if someone gets it off. will probably cut off buckles and use a stitching awl so that the straps(s) will have to be cut, thus making it uncomfortable to carry or put on another bike.

I don't think so. I think that indicates either gas mask or civil defense. I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure it isn't an indicator of explosives or ammunition.

EDIT: a quick double check does show that as the "civil defense" symbol.
