R.I.P. Rothco Messenger Bag

After many trips back and forth to comic cons, travel, work through the snow, rain, hail, wind and worst of all the NYC Subway System, my Rothco bag is set to go to the farm where all the other old messenger bags go to play and relax after they are no longer working.

Either way, I noticed a week ago that my messenger bag which I purchased 7 or 8 years ago has seen better days and perhaps it was time to replace it. This $25 bag has held up better than any "business model" bag that I have had to buy and has proven to be more durable and manageable. It has always been my go to bag whenever I needed to commute.

I will miss it, and it deserved a memoriam post before it is laid to rest as an asset in the trunk of my car should I ever require it to come back into service again.

It's replacement is laid out next to it and it will be called into duty soon.
