Martin (who's finger you can see in the last yellow bag photo below pointing to his name) was lugging around this bag from Bike EX from the early 90's. It is the oldest messenger bag I have ever seen, so I snapped some photos to share the history.
backpack straps that he says he's never used.
Martin said that there were about 7 of these bags and about 5 guys on a shift so you had to leave the bag for the next rider. They just rotated them around.
Does anybody know who made this?
