  Brand V GrabSack - Tan - 20214


Made in: United States

product code: BAVGS

This has the potential to be the most used bag in your life. It's big enough without being a big bag. It's small enough to take anywhere. It's an airport bag, a camera bag, a small shopping bag, a camping spillover bag, and a tourist's ultra-dream bag. Wear it one of two ways:

(1) Like a fanny pack, or if you favor function over symmetry, off to the side and a hair behind your hip. Put your needs in it and go, and reach in and grab them as you need them. It's handy, out of the way, and you tighten the belt (which in this mode is a waist belt) and there's no flop-around. It stays put!

(2) Like a shoulder bag, like a woman hauling around her purse. It's a good bag for cameras, clothing, cellphone, loot, binoculars, books, whatever you can fit into a 12" x 9" x 3.5" sack. Inner sleeve pocket for wallet-keys-phone. The cap closes with two wooden toggles, which are made in New York. The fabric is the same best-in-the-world waterproofed Scottish cotton. It's a simple, useful sack. Over your shoulder or on your hip. Military spec webbing. Vegan. You grab it and go.

*We shouldn't have to say this, but please don't put waxed cotton bags into a washing machine -- especially not hot wash!

Best Camera Bag! April 2, 2012
Reviewer: Herbert from Cookeville, TN United States  
I use this as my "casual" camera bag.  I can put my Nikon D7000 in it along with 1-2 extra lenses, memory cards, cleaning kit, extra battery, a map, compass, and a thin jacket.  As you can see, it holds a lot more than it seems.  

It is very well made, looks great and allows me to carry a lot without bulk.  Only improvement I made was I made a cardboard stiffener by cutting up an old file binder and placed it inside the small pocket that is within the bag.

It is also surprisingly waterproof.  It has kept my camera gear dry in a decent downpour and even being right underneath a waterfall with water spraying everywhere.

This is a neat bag. December 8, 2011
Reviewer: John from Portland, OR  
I use this bag on public transportation.  I carry a packable windbreaker (as a rain shell), a wool hat, a scarf, a pair of gloves -- all things I sometimes take off when the weather is warmer in the late afternoons but cold in the mornings.  In addition, I can put my wallet, keys and cell phone in it.  Small but voluminous.

I find this bag very useful September 25, 2011
Reviewer: Ray from San Francisco  
I find this bag to be very useful, both on and off the bike. I use it just as much on my short hikes and walks around the city as I do riding a bike.  I have also set it up as a handlebar bag on my flat-barred Bleriot and on my Rawland Sogn.  It's water resistant, as well.  Construction top-notch.  I would recommend this to any bicycle commuter, day-hiker, city-walker, or BART rider. It'll hold an iPad nicely.
