Barney Rustle Blanket

Crumpler gives their messenger bags very odd names, but what's in a name? the Barney Rustle Blanket is my final choice and it recently arrived by mail after being lost around the world. the size is perfect for a 12" powerbook and the dimensions are very flexible. it can take bulky as well as flat objects, thanks to folds along the bottom to accommodate different shapes. there are a few inside pockets, a larger zipped pocket and the main compartment. i like the "sunburst" design on the outside and it comes in many colors. i eventually chose the grey, because it is less "loud" and it would allow me to take it to work. the main strap is adjustable, but leaves a loop on the end because it doesn't fold into itself. there is also a 3rd leg strap designed for commuters and prevents the bag from swaying back and forth during a bike ride. overall, i'm quite happy with the barney rustle blanket, but for those needing a larger bag, you can go for the "complete seed" or "seedy three" which have the same design but in a larger format.

note the reflector: orange is my first choice, but... sometimes it's just not appropriate. (when is orange NOT appropriate, sigh..)

Equipbug, I have seen those bags being sold in Sydney Bondi Beach and I immediately knew that you would love them! Haha! Was thinking of getting you one ...but they are not cheap at all! The Barney Rustle Blankets are the newly released ones that had no discounts...argh!
Any ideas of how much they would cost in HK?

hmm. you can find them at Wan Chai computer centre, and Windsor House computer arcade. there are computer bag stores there that carry these, even though they are not specifically computer bags. it will cost you around 1100 HKD though..
