up-cycled firefighting gear mussete

This bag is made from recycled firefighter gear.  I wanted to do something with recycled materials and wanted it to be both rugged and waterproof. It occurred to me that firefighting gear fulfills those requirements and is also reflective.  This makes it ideal for a bike commuter bag.  

The name tag of the firefighter who wore this gear is sewn into an internal pocket and it is made with nomex thread, kevlar webbing, and aluminum hardware to stay true to the spirit of the original gear.  Each piece of gear is unique and caries with it a story that I think is worth preserving.   

These one-off bags are made to order.  Contact me if interested.
