    tl;dr

    I have like 2-3 upright sacks, waxed and dope as hell. Just this sack'd have the same problems. Upright sacks just turn into a very fancy bucket o junk. The cocoon sacks seem pretty sweet, but the slim sack cant stop grabbing my attention. But fuck, it's 180.

    If you really need to be that nerdy (and don't we all), why not just buy one of these and throw it into your normal bag/bucket?Worstcase I'll just zip tie on a seat... but i'd rather not. —Zev (who else)

    Accurate. So so accurate.

    Nerdo, the cocoon bags come with one, and the SLIM version actually has it built into the front pocket... it is the front pocket.EPIC! Stratton: ^fwiw he did in fact have a map out.... ...while riding.... ...with no hands.... ..on fire*...

    Right, but the cocoon is the pocket protector of backpacks. All function, no class. Throw the Grid into your waxed canvas backpack and you get style points plus functionality.Worstcase I'll just zip tie on a seat... but i'd rather not. —Zev (who else)

    HOLY FUCK.... i just had a flash of brilliance and just came up with the best goddamn bag design. @_@

    based on that waxed canvas one. Unfortunately I know nothing about making bags, so it'll probably fail miserably, and I cannot make it myself... but HOLY FUCK

    Figures it would take skaters/bikers from Europe to design the *only* serious legit skate/bike back pack. Of course, it has to be cold war army green, too. I. FUCKING. DROOL. $200 w/shipping has me pause, however.

    ^^i was thinking about that the other day. have had my freight bag since 2010 and it's still going strong. only thing is a slightly damaged buckle clip.somebody turn the lights off on this place already.

    I FULLY agree a good bag is worth the money. No question. The question, here, is do I want to drop $200, *just* so I can *sometimes* carry my board, in a more effective manner than the ways I already do on my (other) expensive bags?

    I already have, and use THREE bags! Chrome Citizens, Chrome Lieutenant (most often used), and a "normal" backpack. Do I need a FORTH one, just for my skateboard? Prolly. :)All you white kids look alike when you're still covered in baby fat, so I was getting bored with the non-stop WASP parade.

    (This post is about a product SO specific, it's not really relevant to any of ya'll).

    Yeah. So that bike/skate bag. Xmas present from parents. Score. I ordered last Thursday (Dec 4) after work. When I got up in the AM (Dec 5) they had emailed me. Said they had some in stock, and if I got back to them quickly with address confirmation, they'd send it out today (Dec 5). By time I had woken up, it was too late. They said it would go out Monday, Dec 8. Shipping was like $30. Seemed a little high, but coming from Hungary and all, not too bad. On Monday they send me an email with tracking #. I take a quick look at it. I notice it says "Estimated Delivery, Tuesday Dec 9." I'm like NO. WAY. Has to be mistake." For shits and giggles, I check it after I get out of work on Monday night. Tracking reads, "Arrived at sorting facility in New Jersey, USA." Mind. Blown. It arrived on Tuesday, Dec 9. Overnight shipping from Hungary. Insane.

    Bag itself is amazing. Super high quality. Will outlast the rest of my skate carer, that much is 100% certain. Light years better than any other bag designed to carry a board I've ever had (inc. ones made by actual skate companies...but those were not ALSO designed to be used by a cyclist). Quite happy, and OUTSTANDING customer service. IF I ever need another bag, I would def consider Blind Chic again.

    Here are a few pics of mine.

    Compared with my Chrome Lieutenant for size reference.

    Please explain. Is this, like, the exact size of the basket on the Bullitt? Or are you playing games with perspective? I really can't tell if this is a joke or not, and knowing that Bullitt, I'm inclined to believe it's not.

    If not, please post pics of cats inside that bag, for scale.

    Nat said no cats in the bag because they might scratch it up and cats are nasty and we want to carry people's food in it and all... Here's our largest cat next to it, though:

    I don't have a big reload (I do have a reload hip pack I like a lot!). They're both excellent and it seems like among bike people I know they're represented about equally. Personally, I think Trash's designs and quality are super on point now, and I like their variety of flap bag sizes (it looks like reload only does one size?). If you're looking for a sling, that trash can in stock looks pretty hot, but I don't know how the strap is or if it's reversible. I'm still attached to Bailey Works for that stuff."life is hard, cats are soft." - surprisefries

    That is an enormous cat, and the fact that it's in front of the bag ends up making the bag look smaller..
    I feel like this picture gives the best sense of the size of that bag:
