Beinghunted gives us a peek of its new tote bag, produced by the folks at Bagjack. Although just a preview, we get a hint of what the final product should look like. The bag is set to go into production soon, with expected availability in the coming weeks. A bit more insight into the project is offered below.
More than half a year ago I sat down with Pe from Bagjack to develop a tote bag for Beinghunted. Since the basic shape of this kind of bag is more or less static – in our case we also based the body on an existing Bagjack messenger bag – we focused on the details. One key element is the Velcro® webbing on the outside which allows the wearer to add on smaller pouches, carabiners, etc. as well as customize the bag with his/her own patches. In order to keep the contents protected during tougher weather conditions, Pe suggested to add a cover with waterproof zip, an element which is not too common on most tote bags. For easier access, this lid can also be folded outwards when opened to enhance stability. We also adjusted the lenght of the carry straps, adding a bit to the length, so that the bag could be shifted further towards the back when fully loaded.
