Ok, alienmeatsack already posted a review of sorts in the thread about buying the bag, but
I figured I'd elaborate a little and give it it's own review thread since it is a nice bag indeed.

This is where the bag can be purchased:

alienmeatsack wrote:

$19 on sale, available in OD Green, Black and Tan.


Here is the pocket measurement breakdown provided by a.m.s.:

OK, here are pics of the bag for you guys to see. All sizes approx since the bag is flexible and
things can move to accomodate items.

Full set here:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/alienmeatsack/sets/72157617272118572/

On one side, it has 2 large pockets, one 8x4.5x2 and one 3x10x1.5, both zippered. One has the soft part of velcro on
it to stick your unit/group/whatever patches onto. And it has 3 fabric slots for a small flashlight and pens or similar.


The other side has 5 pockets, all with velcro fastened covers. 2 of them are 6x1.5x3 approx, one is half the height of those 2,
and one above it in the middle is 2 little 2x1.5x1.5 pockets with one single velcro fastened cover for both. Along this entire
side is one large pocket behind the smaller pockets, fasted at the top with velcro as well. Lined everywhere except where the
carry straps run up the sides with the soft side of velcro. It's thin, but could easily hold whatever you wanted, from papers to
maps, to well, use your imagination.


There are 2 large adjustable pockets on each end with long dual elastic straps that attach via velcro to the bag. They can
easily hold 16.9oz water bottles, etc.


The inside compartment is about 15"w x 4"d x 10"h, and has lots of room to expand to hold your stuff.


It also has a divider that goes lengthwise with a velcro piece on each end that can be removed,
and a small velcro flap in the middle of it to hold something.


The lining is black and soft, would be no problem to use for a laptop or something that needs
some babying. The bag itself is not lined with any kind of thick padding though.


It zips shut with 2 sturdy zippers with pull cord on them.


It has a nice adjustable padded shoulder strap, and extra loops to hook it to other stuff as needed.


The main carry handles are nice and sturdy, with a snap enclosure to hold them together.
The straps for these run down the sides and the bottom of the bag as well.


That's it. A nice quality bag for a nice price.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As for me, I got my bag the other day and decided to show what I crammed in it to give you a reference as to size.



First, here is the majority of my scooter junk after I took it out of the various nooks and crannies it was previously stashed:


After a quick re-organization, everything is ready for it's new home in the bag:


Here's how everything fit in:


..................................some tools........................................................loads of ECS patches...............small stuff I don't want to lose goes in the small pockets Very Happy


.......................manuals / papers........................................more patches / hardware / plugs / etc.............................................lightbulbs.............................


...electrical junk / more nuts & bolts..................reflective stuff / velcro.............................................old stock horn / 11 cans of cat food...................


And here it is with everything in it and still PLENTY of room left over! Clap


I only put the cat food in there because I needed to get it out of the way and I didn't have anywhere else to put it at the time. I
will most likely put my socket set and other tools in the main zipper bag part. With all that in there it will likely be pretty heavy...
probably too heavy to carry around all the time, but I plan to keep it in one place where I can get to everything when I need it.
Obviously the weight depends on what you put in it. So that about sums it up... at under 30 bucks including shipping, it is
an excellent, well-made bag for keeping things separated and organized, and a lot cheaper than most! Wink

Mine just came the other day - my gf was convinced I had lost it after I was playing with it and giggling over the pockets for a good 30 min. So far it looks very well constructed and has a lot of space. My only challenge will be keeping it organized so I don't have to check every one of the 50 pockets for whichever thing it is that I'm looking for.

Really nice bag. In the very first picture it looks like that the long horizontal pocket at the bottom of the bag would be a good place for a laptop power cord.

Also thank so much for explaining about the cans of cat food. I was scratching my head wondering why you would take these on a scooter run. especially as I assumed it was to fight off hunger pangs and I didn't see a can opener in the pile of stuff from the bag....

Shocked

Dood, top notch bag filling skills you got there! :D

I have yet to fill mine with anything major, I did put on all of my buttons from MB.com and a Donnie Darko pin as well. Needs some patches and then I can use it.

It will get filled with stuff for the upcoming rally in KC I am sure.

:D

I got mine a week ago. I was quite pleasantly surprised at the quality and the number of features/compartments, especially considering the low price. It makes most of the messenger bags on the market look like overpriced fashion accessories. The long compartment with a velcro closure is ideal for concealing a velcro-backed. holster. Plenty of storage for bottles, tools, spare parts, first aid kit, rescue blanket, etc.

I just got mine in yesterday. Best bag I own for sure. I'm quite the fan of having 1.6 million little pockets to store 2.3 million usual, random things. My SPAZ patch is going to go on the fron big pocket when I get it in.

Nice write up, everyone!

When I ordered mine I contacted customer service and told them about the review and sent a link. Received a big thank you and "forwarding this to management" response.
Hey Eric, spose you could wangle a discount for MBers?

At this price, I'd feel guilty for asking!

Oh, I thought it was just me. Everyone has their own form of shopping therapy, I buy bags...just when I think I have found the ultimate, there's another one. I just bought a Timbuktu and now this. Rolling Eyes

Yeah, but this is about 1/4 or less the cost of the Timbuk2's, so you can afford to get several variants within the same budget Very Happy

And some Tactical Shorts. For when you need to take a building full of terrorists and it's hot outside.

I would have bought one, but after shipping and tax it was $30. It's not as good a deal as I was hoping.

Considering the normal price is $60?? Even after shipping and tax, that's half off!

If you notice, everything on that site has a "normal" price. But it's one of those permanent sale price situations. They NEVER sell it for $60. It's a make-believe price.

But.....I'll grab one with that 15% off code. Thanks Krusty.

You won't be disappointed k1dude. I ordered me a black one earlier today. Now I just have
to wait for that silly Taiwan airport strike to end so I can get my PowerWheels patch!!! Cool

I'm thinking two of these and some Velcro straps and I could fashion some saddle bags.

Dude! What a brilliant idea. I wonder how weather proof they are? Maybe they could be sprayed with some kind of waterproofing stuff...

There's a product (Nikwax Tech Wash) that will waterproof almost anything like this. You wash the bag in it (in a washing machine). People who've used it for riding jackets say it works quite well.

I was also looking at some of the other larger tactical bags that could work for this. I may hit some surplus stores this afternoon to see how I could make this work.

SUM BANG!
If I get mine and hate it (not likely), can we use your domain for a giveaway contest?

Sure. Very Happy

I might put some more effort into the domain to make it look more like MB/MV but I doubt it. I may just put up the pics I did and the review/stuffing done in this thread and link to the bag on the site we got it.

Not sure why I needed the domain. But I am a whore for domains like I said. Very Happy

ROFL

Can I post my "mods" once I get all my patches sorted out? Very Happy

I went on a weekend excursion on my Buddy, and tested my Tactical Bail Out Bag as an alternative to buying a topcase for the stuff that couldn't be simply strapped to the scooter and wouldn't fit in the pet carrier. I used it for my rain gear, camera, tools, first aid kit, spare gas, compass, and sundries. I wore it messenger-bag style, with enough slack for the bag to rest on the seat behind me. When I went hiking in the dunes, I pulled out the things I obviously wouldn't need (e.g. rain gear, tools, gas) and brought the bag with me, which turned out to be a good move, as I got lost in the woods after dark and needed the flashlight. Smile After due reflection, the TBOB is now on the official packing list for the "MI way" scoot around Lake Michigan.

Grrr. I still don;t have mine. I need to call LA Police Gear. I was supposed to pick it up there. Their instructions were to call. I called; they said they would call me when I could come. Just realized that was 5 weeks ago. D'oh!

That's sweet TVB! I use mine everyday as a tool bag, haven't taken any long scooter trips to bring it with me... Eric, can't you just go up there during business hours and pick it up? I mean, you already bought it and it's in stock, so why not?
